Here is a throw back to one of my favorite parties. This post has been updated with the downloads at the bottom of the post.
A huge thanks to Courtney at Pizzazzerie for debuting our very first big party shoot yesterday. This party was planned and crafted by Lisa Frank and yours truly. A lot of work and a lot of fun! Take a look at the photos, get inspired to celebrate this Fourth of July. . . and I will share all the details at the end of this post.

Your 4th of July is cute! Could you tell me where you got the red & white striped pitcher? Love it!
Hi Trish. Lisa will have to answer that for you. I remember her pulling it from her mother’s stash and she may be able to find out the source.
I borrowed the pitcher from my mom, but I found the same one on Amazon: Terramoto Ceramic Stripes 9-1/2-Inch Large Pitcher, 3-Quart. It comes in multiple colors.
Thanks for sharing that info Lisa.
I found you via Pinterest and am so excited about your ideas for a 4th of July party! I love your creative printables. Thanks so much for sharing.
Thanks Laura! You have an adorable blog. (doxi lover here).
Love it! I think the pinwheel straws are my favorite part!
Thanks! I posted the felt pinwheel tutorial too. 🙂

Tot preparat amb molt d’estil i amb el bon gust que et caracteritza.
You are so sweet Anna!

These items are so festive and fabulous! Can I ask what font is used for the food/beverage labels, please? I’m hosting an old fashioned Ice Cream Social at my workplace next week and need to make labels on the buffet for the different ice cream and topping flavors. Would you mind sharing what font it is, please? Something I can find on dafont.com perhaps?
Thanks Donna. I used a free font called “the dead saloon” downloaded from dafont.com. Ice cream social! Fun!!
Found it! Looks great. Thanks for letting me know. Don’t you just love dafont.com? I’ve downloaded dozens and dozens of fonts from that site. Thanks, Lia!
I do like them and fontsquirrel.com too. Have you checked out their fonts?
Hi, Lia —
Thanks for the tip re: fontsquirrel.com. I hadn’t heard of that site. I just had a chance to check it out and they do have great fonts too!
Appreciate the additional resource. Thanks!
I LOVE free fonts! 🙂
The photography, set up, and all the props are beautiful! So fun to have you at our property, and I hope to have many more shoots here.
Thank you so much for offering your gorgeous place for this shoot! I am looking forward to more!
Awesome presentation Lisa and Lia!!!! I’ll just change the flag to Canadian and the date to July 1st and I’m ready to celebrate lol
Perfect! Let me know if I can help. 😉
[…] can be made with one layer or two. You can see in the photo here as well as the photos from the Vintage Fourth of July Party how to get creative in using pinwheels as a festive touch to party decorating. They are so simple […]
Fabulous stuff, I love everything, well done girls!!
Thanks Louise! We had so much fun doing it too.
Thank you for the kind words, Lia! I hope this party inspires others to celebrate in style! With just a little extra time and a few basic supplies, any simple occasion can look beautiful and personalized.
I can taste that caramel corn now! Mmmmm! The recipe is by Annie’s Eats and works perfectly every time. For the 4th, I may set out mix-ins like candy, pretzels, and melted chocolate or peanut butter sauce so guests can create their own custom caramel corn mix. A perfect portable treat for watching the fireworks! 🙂
Thanks for your creative talent with this party Lisa!
