Pin Picks 4th of July Favors

If you haven’t baked a four-layer flag cake or filled five hundred mason jars with red, white and blue jelly beans yet, don’t fret. Here are a few easy ideas of things to bring to all your Fourth of July festivities this weekend.


Fruit sangria

Sangria is always a party pleaser. It looks and tastes fancy, but it’s actually super simple to prepare. Mix white wine with fruit, and put it in a large pitcher or glass beverage server with a spigot.


Photo booth props

Put some pop in your party pix. You’ll need thick card stock, an x-acto knife or scissors, a hot glue gun and wooden sticks. Design your own, or print this template pinned by Lauren Hooker.


Bingo, giant Jenga and beer pong battleship

In thirty minutes or less, you can create an outdoor game that friends, aged two to seventy-two, will have a blast playing in the backyard.


Happy 4th everyone!
