Happy 4th of July

Every year Americans celebrate the 4th of July with fireworks and grilled food. We gather with friends and family to have an enjoyable time together at several barbecues.

If you plan to host a 4th of July party this weekend, here are some quick last minute favors you can create.

1. Place some red, white, and blue gumballs into a clear container to pass out to the kids. These are a festive way to decorate your table setting too.

2. Fill a clear cone bags with popcorn or cotton candy. Tie a ribbon around the opening and place it on a table for any guest to snatch up.

3. For a bigger gift that a guest could take home and reuse, pick up some plastic tumbler cups and place them in plastic boxes. Decorate the boxes with individually wrapped candies, stickers, or confetti. You could even drop in a few powder packets of lemonade or energy mixes.

We hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July celebration!
