4th of July Ideas

At True40, we love celebrating the 4th of July with our friends and family! Lake trips, cookouts, and pool parties are some of our favorite ways to celebrate and this year we looked for different activities and recipes to take to our gatherings. We have compiled a list of a few ideas for you here and hope that you all enjoy this time with friends and family while we celebrate the freedom we have here in our beautiful country. 


How cute are these stars?! If you are hosting a party or just want to create a fun outdoor space for the kids, we think that these painted stars are the perfect addition! Not only will your kids and guests enjoy this decoration, they will love helping with the painting! To check out how to make these, visit The Concrete Cottage blog. 


Looking for a festive snack or side to take to your party? We have found a healthy and fun option! These 4th of July fruit kabobs are simply darling and will surely impress your guests and friends. Not only are these adorable, but the fruit kabobs are a great way to stay on track with your healthy lifestyle! To make this fruity treat, head over to the Baby Bump Diaries.


Decorating the house for a 4th of July party is so fun and there are so many different ways to show off your creativity! Make an activity of it and have the kids or your friends get together to make these American flag mason jars. The Maison de Pax blog shared where she found the perfect tutorial and instructions for this craft. Paint these jars, put your favorite flowers in them, and enjoy your festive decorations!
