With fourth of July upon us it’s time to throw a  Birthday Party for America!  Can you think of anyone more deserving of a big bash than Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam?   With such esteemed guests of honor, your party better not fall short on patriotic POP!

First, make sure that even your beverages stand at attention with these fun new beer labels available here.  Your guests will have a blast with fun and catchy phrases like “Four score and seven beers ago” and “America the Brewtiful”.  It’s okay to show loyalty to both country and brewer… we promise.

Last, but not least, is the ever important party games.  Keep the kids occupied with a fun and appropriate fireworks and bubble table as seen here.

Sparklers and pop-its are fun for all ages!  You can use mason jars and chalk paint or go the easy route and get labels that do the work for you.  You can edit these labels to ‘sparkle’ any way you wish.
