After having kids, I find that we are always having a celebration for something. Whether it is a birthday or just a play date, we try to run with a theme and have fun with it. I try to stay within a reasonable budget for our play dates because after snacks, tablewear, and crafts- it can get costly. I found that Oriental Trading always had the best prices, plus they offered coupons so we could get what we needed for our get-togethers without breaking the bank.
One thing I find I’m always purchasing at Oriental Trading is crafts. They have the best selection of pre-packaged crafts as well as finger paints and crafting accessories. With the Fourth of July just around the corner, I thought it would be nice to pick up a few items from Oriental Trading that would make our family’s annual 4th of July barbecue complete. I found a serving bowl with spreader, Uncle Sam yard decoration, and red white and blue glitter wreath to set up the decor. For the kids I ordered the Patriotic Bug Magnet Craft kit, and for the table wear I ordered a dozen red and white checkered table cloths. Simple and affordable, these little touches make a huge difference in getting “in the spirit” and celebrating Independence day. So, here are my top five picks for 4th of July parties:
Patriotic Bowl with Spreader – from Guacamole to Olive Tapenade, this bowl with get years of use!
Uncle Sam Jingle Bell Yard Stake – decorate, have fun with it! Your kids will love this little Uncle Sam yard decoration.
Red & White Checkered Table Covers – 12 in a box and you can use them for ANYTHING! They are perfect for indoor/outdoor use and they are good to have on hand.
Patriotic Glitter Wreath– It sparkles and it’s red white and blue. Need I say more?
Patriotic Bug Magnet Craft Kit – 12 kits in a package make this craft under 50 cents a piece! Perfect to keep the little ones entertained and they will have fun with it!
