There is no doubt that our favorite party of the year to plan is the one we throw for the Fourth of July. This year is a little bit different with some family events the same weekend as well as the whole being 30 weeks pregnant thing but we are still planning a fun day. Since Fourth of July is our big party of the year, I start saving stuff on Pinterest anytime I find something that might just work out for the day. While I’ve got a lot of Fourth of July Pinterest favorites, I have yet to actually follow through on them.
I’ll be honest, this year probably won’t change that. Maybe next year right? Since I won’t be using my favorite Fourth of July Pinterest finds I thought I would share them with you.
Fourth of July Pinterest Food
Twizzler Firecracker Cupcakes – I do plan to try my hand at cupcakes this year but I will not be adding the firecracker tops. These are such an awesome idea and would be fun for a party full of kids.
Red White and Blueberry Popsicles – If I was half organized this year I would maybe attempt these! They don’t look too hard and would be a treat kids would love. I’m kind of addicted to popsicles right now so maybe these will be a good 5th of July treat… for surviving the 4th of July?
Indoor S’Mores – Okay, technically we aren’t red white and blue here but can you really go wrong with any recipe that says s’mores in the title? It fits with our summer theme and would be a wonderful Fourth of July treat!
4th of July Snack Mix – With a large number of kids that usually celebrate with us, this would be perfect for an afternoon treat. Kids would love to have their own cups of these and could pick and choose what they want.
Poprocks Firecracker Cookies – This idea is such a fun one and would be awesome for kids and adults. Poprocks on top of cookies? Sold!
Fourth of July Pinterest Crafts
Patriotic Firecracker Wands – Our 4th of July usually involves a parade so these would be perfect for the kids to make ahead of time. I could see them used as weapons later on in the day, but for the morning they would be a blast!
3D Paper Firecracker Craft – A quick little craft to put on top of cake or just for kids to play with. Simple, easy and really cute!
4th of July Tees – Despite how messy this could possibly get, these flag tees are adorable! Definitely make them a few days before so you have some red, white and blue to sport on the 4th!
Patriotic Snack Carrier – This is adorable and would be perfect to take along to a parade!
Fourth of July Pinterest Adult Beverages
Bluemoon Mango Margaritas – Not quite Fourth of July themed, but these margaritas sound like a great Summer treat. These would be easy to make and easy to share with guests coming over.
Patriotic Punch – Red, white and blue punch, can you really go wrong with that? It doesn’t include any alcohol but I don’t see anything wrong with adding a little bit to spice it up for your adult guests.
4th of July White Sangria – Originally this was on my list to make this year, but since I can’t enjoy it I decided against it.
Sorry Not sorry. The sangria looks easy and is a fun way to celebrate with friends.
Stars and Stripes Cocktail – Another quick and easy drink that would be fun for adults of all ages (over 21).
