4th of July Party


The weather is getting warmer and your children are off from school. There is no better way to kick off summer than 4th of July party. And that's exactly what I had in mind: to create fun, simple, and memorable 4th of July party for both of the kids and the adults as well.


Fourth of July Party Invitation

I started out with the opening invitation such:

Tired of crowded place……
Finding something Fresh & Fun for girls…………….
Come join us on …. (Date and Time) with flags and banner flying high
Bring your bikes decked in red, white, and blue so we can march with you
There will be crafts, tasty food and swimming too…..
So bring your bathing suits and sun block if the sun finally shines
It will be priceless memories…Everything handmade….


Fourth of July Party Decorations

All the crafts are made from inexpensive and easy to find materials around the house. I also took some of decoration ideas from couple of websites to create splendid decorations for my backyard 4th of July party!


Confetti Popper Rockets. The rockets are very easy to make (I used recycle toilet paper tubes) filled up with star confetti inside.

When the girl pulled the string, all the star confetti fell to the group. This game creates an excitement for the girls.


Lanterns. This cute 4th of July paper lanterns are simple to make and look great when you string them up as decorations. You can add more sparkle by putting star stickers to them.

Chair Cover. For chair cover, I used red, white, and blue designed to be the shape of American flag, by simply gluing them together with the glue gun. Then decorated with beads.

Pom Pom. I used eight pieces of tissue paper make a white blue and red pom pom. Make a pointy edge to give the look of the star.

Place card. To make it more special, I decided to make a small tiara with their names on the top of the flag, then placed on their place setting.

Flower Basket. A dollar basket can be an elegant goodie bag simply decorating with flowers all around it.

Fourth of July Party Foods

Most of the foods are simple and easy to make. I also put the entire name to match with the theme, for example:

  • Rocking rice crispiest
  • Shortbread with attitude
  • Independent day shrimp
  • Patriotic Salad


Watermelon Pop Stars. The starry fruit pops make a cool treat for the kids while they are having fun in the pool and were a big hit at the party. Use star cookie cutter to cut from 1 inch thick slices of watermelon. Then, insert a Popsicle stick into star, place it in aluminum foil, and freeze them for an hour.

Cupcakes. The cupcake comes from local bakery with banana filling for all the guests.

Jell-O. Every kids love jello!!! Cut the oranges into half, then take out the inner, place the halves in a muffin tin, carefully pour jello into the halves and stored in the fridge for couple hours. Happy girls are happy with orange jello wedge.

Orange Cups. I want to make something special and healthy for the kids. So I simply cut the top of oranges; shapes it like a cup holder; and filled them up with berries. This is a perfect snack in hot summer day. Then, I initial them with the first letter of the kids' name.

Bike Parade. No independence day was complete without a parade. Therefore, we let all the girls riding their bike decorated with US flag around the neighborhood. This was a blast as the girls simply enjoyed the ride.
