Make your party the talk of the town ! Here are a few final touches that will make a big impact !
• Sparkler Favors ! Create bunches of sparklers ( about five each ) and tie them up with a decorative ribbon . Add a cute tag with each guests name on them ! Put them out at dusk and let your guests go find there bunch and watch them enjoy some good old sparkler fun !
• Firecracker Treats ! Take empty toilet paper rolls and fill them with some star confetti and little favors ( candy , tattoos , bouncy balls , bubbles etc .). Once they are filled , wrap them in decorative paper and tie of the ends with curling ribbons and some silver star garlands . Let each child have a firecracker ! They will love what they find inside when they tear open the top !
• Sunscreen please ! Be totally prepared for a hot outside day full of sunshine and bugs ! Place bug spray and some sunscreen options in a decorative bucket outside for your guests to use . This will ensure they can make it through fireworks and won ’ t be miserable the next day with a sunburn !
