I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! I absolutely love the 4th – the fireworks, the festivities, the color palette… It’s patriotic, it’s preppy and it just reeks summer to me. So instead of pulling down your stars and striped decorations today, re-purpose them and throw your kids a superhero party!
Take those paper lanterns, star banners, and leftover stripe napkins and pull together a quick summer party for your kids and their friends (you will, for sure, be the coolest mom on the block!). I love this invitation from Tiny Prints! Perfect for showcasing a picture of your little caped-crusader! These felt wristbands from etsy.com would also make fabulous napkin rings! Now all you need are a few fabulous treats….
A few simple touches can add a whole lot of impact when it comes to treats! Add a chocolate star atop your cupcakes, or make red, white and blue striped ice pops for a fun treat on a hot day! You can also cut a lightening bolt out of lemon peel and insert it a glass of punch for a little extra POW!
