Decorate to Celebrate #27 - 4th of July Party!!

Enter my Blog Candy Giveaway HERE!!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful week :) It's time for another super-fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! For Challenge #27, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a 4th of July Party. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about fireworks, sparklers and freedom with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!!


For my 4th of July party decorations, I created rocket candy holders and decorative 3D stars. In the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit that M&M's were harmed in the taking of the above picture. But I promise you, they did not suffer long ;) (And mmmmm, they were good!!)


The paper is from DCWV The Stack 6 (an old, old, oldie). All of the stars are from Tablescapes Spring & Summer cart, cut in various sizes.


I found these adorable rocket candy holders on the Martha Stewart blog, HERE. There are templates you can print out with the correct sizes.



All of the stamps are from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set:

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my Design Team sisters have created. Then link up your 4th of July Party decorations!! I can't wait t see what you create :)

  4. Like your festive 4th of July party decor. The pattern on the papers you used is wonderful for 4th of July. Cannot go wrong with chocolate as in M&Ms. Happy 4th of July!

  5. These are awesome, Lisa! I love the colors, the papers, the stamps - everything! I think it's socially acceptable now to harm M&Ms, lol.

  6. Fantastic, Lisa! I love the color scheme as it's a little different than the typical classic red, white & blue.
