i need to hurry and post these photo’s from our 4th of july bbq we had the other day before the 4th has come and gone! the 4th snuck up on me this year :).

this bbq was really fun to put together and plan. i purchased the 4th of july pack at paper & cake last month & have been really excited to use it {although i didn’t use everything i wanted to}. good old uncle sam greeted all our guests by the bbq here’s the cupcakes i made with paper and cake’s printables {you buy the pack, download it, print it, and cut and assemble..for those of you that don’t know}. i put drink parasols and round toppers on the cupcakes…along with some 4th of july pinwheels i found at the craft store…i attached red and blue ribbons to some white lanterns and hung them everywhere… a close up of the 4th of july banner…

here’s the plates and snack boxes etc. i actually didn’t use the boxes for snacks though, i came up with the idea to use them as hamburger sleeves! they worked perfectly!…here’s the napkins etc… marshmallow stars {the kids LOVED them. they were gone within minutes}…i bought 4th of july taffy & put it in a star bowl…the table centerpieces & festive coasters {it had gotten dark by the time i snapped this pic}…the watermelon beverage dispenser!! i carved out the watermelon and added the spigot and strawberry watermelon juice. easy, and so cute! {i know, the s is upside down..hehe}…
the hamburger sleeves i was talking about… my friend lyndsey {kitchen doughdough} made some awesome cupcake/brownie shish kabobs! click on her site to see the how to…all the kiddios watching fireworks…

it was a fun bbq! happy 4th of july!!

    That watermelon idea is amazing. Where can you buy just the spigot and did it last through the whole party? I really like the table cloths as well.

    thanks, kasey. i bought a plastic drink dispenser at walmart..it had a removable spigot! ya, it lasted..you just have to make sure you scrape out the watermelon REALLY well so there isn't any pulp or chunks in the juice :)..hehe

    I like everything about this party. I so need one of those shade covering's that you so brilliantly decorate for most of your parties. I love to see all your creative ideas. I love the printables you used for the party. The hamburger sleeves are my favorite! Great party!
