Happy 4th of July! Every year we look forward to enjoying the holidays with friends and family whether it’s going up to my in-laws home in Vermont or enjoying the patriotic spirit in the city. Loved ones, the outdoors, good food, festive spirit, what could be better? A couple of years ago, we had the pleasure of designing a wedding invitation for a couple getting married over the 4th of July weekend and we were ecstatic! From rustic wooden signs, gingham tablecloths, to twinkling lights, sparklers and cozy backyard barbecuing, this holiday is filled with amazing visuals and inspiration! We took the task to heart and designed a fabulous laser cut invitation that mimicked the beauty of fourth of July fireworks in an elegant and sophisticated way. We even went as far as to include little stars in the motif as a nod back to the American flag!
So with the weekend celebrations in mind, I’ve collected some of my favorite (not to mention most sophisticated) 4th of July inspiration to share with you today. From these decorative red and blue sailboat escort cards from our friends at SoCo Events to adorable patriotic cupcakes by NYC cupcake queen Baked by Melissa, get excited for the holiday weekend with this beyond fab inspiration!
Now how do you take all this gorgeous inspiration and bring it to your party this weekend? Here are my favorite style and accessory picks for how to bring our Fourth of July style to life this holiday weekend!
