We love summer! Fourth of July is one of our faves! It’s a time that we can show our patriotism and capture those sweet little moments with the twins that make our families and friends hearts melt. Here are some Independence goodies we wanted to share with you to make your celebration even more festive.
What To Wear: If you are someone who likes to coordinate your twinnies outfits, check out the sweet clothing Gymboree has this holiday. Gymboree is a GO TO spot if you ever want your twinnies to be rocking out in style that matches even if you have boy/girl twins
Invite the Crew! If you are going ALL out with a family bbq, consider getting super traditional and sending out REAL invitations (what? who does that?) to your Forth of July shindig. Yup, we hear people still do that too! Evites has you covered not just for the 4th but for birthday parties too!
Stock Up! If a trip to a big box store isn’t in the cards, that doesn’t mean that the savings you get there shouldn’t be. Try Boxed (first order over $49 ships free!) We stock up on paper plates, grilling supplies, cleaning supplies and everything in between. Save yourself some gas and more importantly, time!
Keep it cool! If your guests are coming over and bringing pot luck items, don’t run out of ‘fridge space. This awesome outdoor cooler allows you to fill it with ice and keep your grandmas potato salad on ice.
Lay em down! Keep your twinnies safe and IN THE SHADE when outside! Check out the Summer Infant Pop n’ Play Portable Playard. We got to check it out at a trade show a bit back and it’s still a TOP Twiniversity favorite of the MoMSquad.
Cut it out! Get everyone in the spirit but creating stars out of your food! Sandwiches and fruit can get a little more creative, you can even use these cookie cutters as stencils to help create some festive decorations. And the under $5 price tag hits everyones pocket the right way!
Speaking of Stars, go all out and decorate your lawn with a little star stencil and a little spray paint! It will last till the next time you mow!
If you are lucky enough to get invited to a friends backyard bash, don’t go empty handed. A small hostess gift like this American Flag Towel from Kohl’s will be a perfect match for that party!
We hope that our few quick ideas help make your 4th all the more special.
