Fun Fourth Party Ideas

Thursday, July 1, 2010

When the boys were younger, I used to have so much fun planning their birthday parties.  Had I known about Twig and Thistle then, party planning would have been a breeze.  Every visit leaves me inspired and wanting to plan a party. If you haven't planned your fourth of July festivities, these images just might motivate you to get started.

 The ideas are simple and fun leaving me with that, "now why didn't I think of that?" feeling.

One can never be too old to enjoy sparklers.  This is the perfect party set-up for a night of sparklers complete with matchbooks and festive cans of chilled soda.

Do you have big plans for the fourth?


  1. We are going out of town just Friday to Sunday. Be home Sunday before the fireworks. We don't usually go to the fireworks anymore, but I can see a lot of them from my driveway if I want to fight off the mosquitoes after they find me. Hope you have a good one!

  2. Every year we have a big fourth of July BBQ followed by fireworks provided by the town that go off across the field, so we have great seats in my driveway. This year we have decided to just have a get together in the driveway. We want to enjoy the festivities in the town since we miss it every year because we are preparing for the BBQ.

    I do like the sparkler idea.

    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful fourth of July!

  3. Oh my goodness...those Rice krispie popsicle looks so good!! We are having a little together with family.

  4. No plans yet, but whatever we do, we'll decorate!

  5. Love that Rice Krispie Bar idea!! Hmmm... I wonder what kind of chocolate was used. Do you know? I need the recipe/instructions!! :-)

  6. Hi Rene,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and your sweet compliment on the house! :)
    And I'm so glad to see your post because my daughter is turning 2 this month! I'm going to check out their site now! :)

  7. That site looks totally inspiring. Thanks for sharing. Glad you like the rug I picked out from your giveaway. So excited for it to come and cozy up my front porch. Thanks for visiting my blog, and I just saw that you put me on your blog roll. Where have I been? I just noticed! A big thank you! I love your blog too! Happy fourth. I've got a long weekend--four days off and could not be more thrilled. Enjoy your weekend. xo -Casey

  8. That straw sign is so cute! So excited for this weekend!

  9. I am going outside in just a few minutes to hang my buntings and to do a little patriotic decorating! I love 4th of July and we are heading out for a picnic on Sunday with friends! Love these wonderful ideas!

    Kat :)

  10. These are great ideas -On the 4th I love making corn and packing it up to take on a picnic to watch the fireworks :)

  11. Aren't we a patriotic group? Our local high school has a huge fireworks display that is actually run by the fire department. People just pull off the by-pass to hang out for a while and tailgate. The kids run around a have a great time. We have been doing it for at least seven years. Lots of fun.

  12. What a fun site ~ great ideas!

    We are attending a weekend long wedding in Newport this weekend. While I'm certain it will be a fun time, there is just something about burgers on the grill, corn on the cob and firworks after dark to celebrate the 4th.

    Hope you have a great one ~

  13. We have an annual party we go to at some friends and it is always such a great time! Chocolate covered rice crispy treats. That sounds like heaven!
