Hi, friends! Happy Monday!

Can you believe that it’s almost the 4th of July? I really can’t get over how fast this summer is going by! Today I’m going to show you some must-haves for any 4th of July party! AND, I’m going to be featuring Twizzlers Twists or Twizzlers Pull N Peel candy! I don’t know about you – but when I put any kind of party together, I try to keep it as simple as possible. 

twizzlers Keeping things simple means a lot of store-bought items that can be put together in a  fun + easy way! For this small party I used all store-bought items, no muss, no fuss, just simple touches! 

How to make a SWEET Grab Bag for Guests:

You’ll Need: One package marshmallows, one package blue gum balls, one Twizzlers Cherry Bites Medium Bag 16oz, clear party bags, stapler, coordinating paper.

4th Grab Bags

Instructions: Open your party bags, place a few gumballs in the bottom, top with marshmallows, and sprinkle in Twizzlers Cherry Bites. Fold down top of bag, secure with a staple, cover top with coordinating paper, staple again.

When you’re finished, arrange and display your treat bags in a burger basket with a patriotic paper liner! These can be easily distributed around the party location so everyone is sure to leave with a fun-filled bag!

Another fun idea is vamping-up store bought cupcakes! Right now local grocery stores are stocked with color-coordinated red, white, and blue treats! Pick some up along with a Rainbow Medium Bag of Twizzlers and let the fun begin!


A simple way to add some Twizzler fun is to coordinate the rainbow colors with the cupcakes like this..



Aren’t they adorable?! Eep, who doesn’t love a fun cupcake, am I right?!

Another fun must-have are FUN STRAWS! I love to display forks, spoons, and straws in cute mason jars. A great way to coordinate the things you already have is to add a pop of washi tape to help unify the look. I also picked up some cute flags to add to the table decor.

Another fun idea for a 4th of July party is to set up outdoor seating in the form of picnic blankets! Lay out some blankets on the lawn, set up some mini-drink stations, and be sure to include some of your burger basket treats! It’s the perfect spot to park with friends and family and watch the fireworks!

Inexpensive paper decor and LED lighting are also a fun touch for any party! LED lights are great because they’re safe for little ones, and they help bring the party outside after it’s dark!

Yay for fun parties, am I right? Be sure to pick up Twizzlers for your 4th of July celebration! I picked mine up in the candy aisle at Walmart:
