What’s on your 4th of July menu? Today we are sharing some gorgeous 4th of July printables and decorations to help you plan an elegant dinner party. One simple way to do this is with the color of paper you use for your decor. For example, using navy, gold, and copper colors instantly makes your celebration feel a little fancier. In contrast, you can make your party feel a little more casual by using your standard red, white, and blue 4th of July decorations.
Of course how you set the table also matters! Below we’ll show you how to style your table for a more elegant dinner party as well as how to make all of the 4th of July crafts you see here.
Cheers to a Fancy 4th
Getting a little fancy for holidays is always fun. And it really can be quite simple. See our pictures for inspiration on how to set your table. Then start crafting!
Start simple with party printables
Start by downloading our 4th of July printables at the end of the post. This PDF includes our “celebrate” and “shine bright” labels so you can dress up your wine bottles. Just print the labels on gold metallic text weight paper. Then, use an adhesive roller or double-stick tape to secure to your wine bottle.
You will also see the “celebrate” printable that we used for our tissue paper firecrackers. And finally, there’s our “shine sparkle” printable, which you can cut out, wrap around a straw, and tape on the inside to secure. All of these 4th of July printables are easy to assemble and will add instant style to your dinner party.
Next, make some classic 4th of July decorations
Along with our festive 4th of July printables, we cut out some simple stars and also added our 3D paper stars to the table. These stars are actually from our star lights garland project, which is a great example of how you can use one craft project in multiple ways. In that tutorial, you will see there’s just one simple step to do if you want to keep it as a decoration or attach it to a string light.
Another fun addition to our 4th of July table is our tissue paper firecracker treat boxes. To make them feel more elegant and to match our color scheme, we used blue, copper, and gold tissue paper. Finally, there’s our tissue paper tassel garland, which we created with navy tissue paper.
Then, add a few paper flowers
Of course, we also had to add some paper flowers to our party table! To fit our theme of elegance, we crafted these crepe paper magnolias and arranged them into a centerpiece with some 3D paper stars. On the table we also have our paper gardenias.
And enjoy for years to come!
Whatever style you are going for, we have a whole bunch of 4th of July crafts to inspire you and help you plan a fun party. Once you craft your 4th of July decorations, you can keep them for next year or re-use them in different ways. You could also use the tutorials to create party decorations for other holidays.
Happy 4th! ~ Lia and team
