4th of July
Independence day is the highlight of my summer. Endless watermelon, the smell of backyard BBQs, flying flags on every porch, and the night sky lighting up with booming fireworks. It’s time to kick off this 4th of July weekend with a little red, white, and blue from AK Party Studio. Take a glance below at some of our favorite all-American décor, treats, and backyard games.
My favorite patriotic details:
- USA lettering
- Vintage style triangle banner
- Bandanas used as a table overlay
- Colorful rock candy
- Blue tumblers with festive straws
- Red, white, and blue pinwheels and stars
- Paper striped lanterns
- Patriotic Bean bag toss

“How do you celebrate the 4th of July? In our home we keep it pretty simple, family, friends, fireworks, food and of course a little red white and blue! With the 4th of July landing on Tuesday this year we decided to celebrate a bit early. It was hot this past weekend in Washington, in the 90’s, and for this pacific northwest girl that is melting temperature! So we invited a few kids over to play for a slip n slide, candy eating good time!
For the fun afternoon ahead I set up a sweets table for the kids, with little cakes, rock candy, and m&ms. It was such a hot day I had cups for them to refill with water as needed, but to make it fun I added cute straws and stir sticks. Some of the kiddos got creative and put their rock candy in their water, anything to make it sweet too.
Oriental Trading has these darling cups in a variety of colors, I am obsessed! They are plastic, which is great for the kids, look really pretty and can be dressed up or down depending on your event.
These cakes are easy for the kids to grab and go, making them perfect for any play date because we all know kids generally don’t sit still for long. Even as an adult I still love Little Debbie snacks, they make the cutest little desserts and usually have themed ones around the holidays. Making your party prep and clean up a breeze!
For this hot day, we set up a slip n’ slide that the kids had a blast using! I love that when I am shopping online at Oriental Trading, I can get more than just party supplies from their site. They have so many fun things to keep your kiddos occupied for the summer! These sweet kids of mine giggled for hours on this thing and came up with so many fun games.
After all the water fun it was time to for a snack, the kids dug right in picking their favorite sweet treat.After they were all sugared up and had more energy we played a game of bean bag toss. I think my
After they were all sugared up and had more energy we played a game of bean bag toss. I think my daughter’s goal was to see how much she could inch toward the board before anyone would notice. Sly little thing.
We ended the afternoon laying on the grass with remnants of rock candy crumbs, blue lips and lots of giggles! Summer has arrived and we are ready!”
Do you have a special occasion that you would like to share? I’d love to see it!
