Light up the event with decorations

  • Place citronella candles throughout your party space to keep the bugs from joining in.
  • Keep guests informed with fireworks-themed food labels. Make sure you mark the level of spice on each label to keep mouths happy.
  • Make your beverages sparkle with straw tags. Write names on the backs of the tags to keep track of everyone’s drinks.

Fan the flame with crafts and activities:

  • Go old-school by gathering flashlights and introducing the kids to a game of flashlight tag!
  • Sparklers are standard on the Fourth of July. Make them functional by using them as timers for relay races. When the sparkler lights, go! Whoever makes it to the finish first before the sparkler goes out wins!
  • Keep kids occupied with confetti firecrackers made out of paper towel tubes. Just be prepared to refill confetti again and again because the pop of excitement is hard to resist.
