{Sparkling Inspiration} Celebrating Independence – Don’t Forget the Kids!

July 1st, 2011 in 4th of july, 4th of july party, kids 4th of july party activities
Right in time for Independence Day, we bring you our grand FINALE from our Independence Day Inspiration shoot and it’s all about the kids! The great thing about the little ones is that it doesn’t take much to please them so we kept it simple. We designed an activity table with the all the works! Loaded with coloring books, crayons, glitter glue and more, this was the perfect setup for any child. We topped it off with a centerpiece that’s great for anybody who loves to dip into DIY projects. We wrapped a clear vase in scrapbook paper and made a few cupcakes on a stick and lollipop to give the illusion of a bouquet. How neat is that!!! Take a peek!

And to end with a little picnic area for the kiddo’s! 

I hope we’ve given you some simple and easy ideas for the upcoming 4th of July holiday! Thanks for reading!
