4th of July {Inspirations}

The 4th of July is a week away and I want to share some fun ideas to help make your celebration fabulous!

First up are some beautiful and festive treats...

I love the whole "sweet in a jar" trend so this red, white & blue cake in a jar is something I really want to try! Check out Babble for the recipe & instructions.

If you are a big coconut fan like me, then these beautiful little coconut stars from Hungry Happenings are sure to be a hit!

How about some patriotic strawberries for your party? These look gorgeous!

This photo is via a member of There are no directions, but you can make these by dipping your strawberry in white chocolate (or white candy melts) and then dipping them in blue sugar (found in your grocery or craft store's cake supply aisle). Be sure to follow the directions on the chocolate or candy melts for dipping!

If you are looking for some ideas for party favors, here a few great ones...

I love this fun idea using red hots! Visit Nothing but Country for complete instructions & the free printable. 

This cute ring pop from Lisa Storms would be a huge hit with the kiddies (and maybe a few grown ups too)!

How about a fun firecracker favor like this one? Find the instructions and free printable on it is what it is.

These clever firework favors are made from a pringles can! Love it! Brought to you Amanda from Shindig Parties to Go. You can find the instructions & free printable on her guest post at Lil' Luna.

Get creative with these fun printable treat bags & cupcake toppers from The Crafting Chicks.

There are so many beautiful, fun & {FREE} printables for the taking to help make your celebration....SPARKLE. Check these out...

I love this striped collection that includes a pennant banner, sparkler holders, toppers & more. Visit Print Your Party to download.

If you are planning a BBQ for the 4th, then this collection featured on Catch My Party would be perfect! Be sure to check out the other free printables available!
Of course it's not a party without the pig ;) A super fun stars & stripes collection from Piggy Bank Parties!

And finally...if you are looking for a festive grown up libation to make your party POP, how about these?
