Rockets and Ribbons – Patriotic 4th of July Party Ideas

Can you believe that the 4th of July is less than a month away?

With all of the tragic events that have occurred in our country in the last week, especially in Orlando, I felt as if it was necessary to create an inspired, red white and blue themed party. As our country mourns the deaths of countless individuals from the Orlando shootings, I think it’s important to highlight our ability to come together as a community, and as a nation.

This week I have created a party idea board for Fourth of July celebrations, with an emphasis for family friendly festivities. It’s so important for our country to come together and rejoice in the many freedoms we are fortunate to have, especially in times like these. This family-centered patriotic party idea board has two elements I’m quite fond of: rocket fireworks and free flowing ribbons!

I loved seeing so many great takes on fireworks as party décor, that I just knew I had to incorporate them in this week’s party idea board. To balance out their straight, rigid lines, I’ve brought in free flowing ribbons in red, white, and blue to soften the design.

Here’s what I had in mind:
