Love to watch the fireworks, but hate fighting the crowds to find a parking spot, and haul all your stuff to the park… Amy of Amy’s Party Ideas, got the solution, tailgate at your parking spot! Just park, open the back of the SUV (No SUV? No problem, just open a folding table), decorate, spread all the food out, and enjoyed the spectacular show!

Nancy of A to Zebra Celebrations shows how to celebrate July 4th on a budget with style. Nancy used things around her house to set up the table. She used a 6-ft table with a white tablecloth and made simple table runners and napkins from fabrics bought at Goodwill. Nancy used a white beverage jar as the focal point of the table. She made her own pennant banners with scrapbook paper. Since desserts can be costly, she bought fruits in season… Hey, fruits are dessert too! For printables click here.
