When you start searching online for the perfect party supplies, are you immediately taken by the chevron cups or the pink polka dotted plates? It can be easy to fall in love with patterns, but solids are generally cheaper. Parties with a color as a theme can often be even more fun than patterns – and as a bonus, they invite your guests to bring their own creativity into the mix. Here are 3 fun party ideas where solids take the spotlight.
One of the very best things about summertime is all the fresh produce available. Grocery stores are suddenly overflowing with piles of delectable-looking fruit, farmer’s markets attract crowds of shoppers hungry for seasonal, locally grown veggies, and “pick-your-own-produce” farm visits are in full swing, with more treats ripening every day.
If you have a backyard garden, you’re probably harvesting your own fresh fruits and veggies, as well, and enjoying that unbeatable homegrown flavor. But even if you don’t have a garden, why not celebrate this season of fresh fruits and veggies with a garden-themed party?
One of the most unique and fun aspects of holiday food is the seasonal color palette we use when making our festive spreads – St. Patrick’s Day has us eating and drinking green, Halloween calls for black and orange, and of course, for the 4th of July, we bring out the red, white, and blue.
So how can you incorporate these patriotic colors into your 4th of July party feast? With a little bit of creativity, it’s easy to wow your guests with tasty treats that show off your holiday spirit.
Who doesn’t love a good 4th of July celebration? The food, the fun, the patriotism, the friends and family…and of course, the fireworks! The 4th of July is the perfect holiday for getting together and having a blast outdoors. But rather than hosting the same old backyard barbecue this Independence Day, why not spice things up a bit with one of these unique takes on the 4th of July party? They’ll make this year’s celebration of our nation’s birthday one to remember.
