The countdown is on for 4th of July celebrations, are you ready? If not, after reading this fun and festive post Party like it's 1776, you will be! 

Keeping the party decor simple is key. We started with the backdrop, Oriental Trading has a great selection of both number and letter balloons. You can purchase either the silver or the gold mylar balloons and spray paint them whatever color you would like. We wanted the numbers to match our DIY "party" balloon and "rockets". Tutorial on the rockets coming soon.

We like to use a tablecloth or runner, but would you believe this is not a runner but a pillar bunting? Before purchasing new items for your party, try "shopping" your home first. Clear glass vases serve as great jelly bean holders and give height to the table! We had the mini silver scoops on hand and added color coordinating ribbon to tie into the theme.

What You Need:

By simply adding ribbon to a white serving tray and laying the colored rock candy on top is a fun way to display them.

Another way to add height to your table, is by using these white candle holders to lift the colored gumballs.

Place festive candy in clear jars so your guests know what is available for their enjoyment and to stay with the theme. 

To hold the beverages, decorate your bar cart and set it next to your party table. Guests can serve themselves or grab an already made drink such as these champagne cocktail sparklers, which were served in clear vintage soda bottles. Super easy and oh so delicious. Recipe coming soon.

What You Will Need:

No 4th of July party is complete without the original Bomb Pops. We placed ours in a galvanized round tin with ice in the bottom to help the melting.

Hope you were able to get some great ideas from this fun party, we love sharing inspiration and ideas with you. Now go party like it's 1776!
