4th of July Birthday

What a day for a party!  Not only did we celebrate our rich history and the freedom we enjoy, but also honored those who daily protect and support that freedom which we are so privileged to enjoy. This 4th of July we not only celebrated Independence Day, but also the birthday of our friend who has served the Phoenix Police Department for 5+ years.

Here’s to all those who protect our freedom, both at home and abroad!

Gorgeous paper stars with translucent lining allowed the beautiful glowing light to shine through delicate patterns as the evening waned. These beautiful stars drew the guests out onto the patio where the party began, gracefully hanging from above and swaying in the wind and as the sunset slowly illuminated the night.

Happy. Hero. Home. How can we show our gratitude? Let me count the ways. This perfectly patriotic 4th of July door-hanger hung out on the patio to be admired by all.

Check out these classy and cool flasks! They were certainly popular among the guests. “Oh what a neat idea!” “How are they made?” and, “dang those are cute!” were the comments of the evening. They brought a touch of vintage history to the day and really tied the event together.

What is a party without food? And what’s better – patriotic-themed food!

Relax, kick back and enjoy the summer! We used this fantastic sign to point guests toward a chilled and refreshing drink on a hot, sunny day.  Printed labels wished guests a happy 4th of July in style and patriotic fervor.
