Fourth of July is the perfect day for boating, barbeques, and celebrating the awesome country we get to call home! It’s also the perfect day for dressing up in your most stylish red, white, and blue gear. This year, I decided to put together a few looks that put a little twist on fourth of July attire.

Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July JacketThe first look is the picture on the left. I love this statement jacket that pairs perfectly with a simple outfit! A pair of black shorts and a black tank top is all you need with this jacket. Finish it off with a cute pair of sunglasses and sandals or converse. If you start to feel the heat, roll up your sleeves like she did on the left!

Depending on where you live, it may be too chilly to wear shorts and a cute tank.Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July Sweater You may need long sleeves or pants. Depending on what events you’re attending on the fourth will determine how festive you’re going to dress. If you’re attending a theme party, why not go all out and get a fun pair of fourth of July leggings?! If you’re just hanging out with friends, try a flag sweater like the one on the right to pair with some jean shorts.

These are just a couple looks for the upcoming holiday! What are you wearing this year? Tell me below!

With Fourth of July just around the corner, many of you may be going to or hosting a backyard BBQ!  Who doesn’t love BBQ ribs with some grilled corn on the cob and cheesy potato casserole?  I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!  While the food is always delicious, sometimes it’s fun to add a little pizazz to your party by adding some backyard BBQ games.  One of my favorites is an old fashioned egg toss.  Everyone grabs a partner and an egg.  You face your partner, arm’s length apart, and toss the egg to him/her.  Then, everyone takes one giant step back away from his/her partner.  You toss again.  If your egg drops, then you and your partner are out.  The game continues until the last team stands alone, hence the winners!

Another game that I have heard of has to do with eating delicious hot dogs.  Who wouldn’t want to join in on that :)?  You cover a hot dog with ketchup or mustard and dangle it from a string.  Then ask a partner to eat the dangling hotdog while holding their arms behind their back.  You can hang quite a few dogs at a time.  Ready, set, go….the first person to eat his/her hot dog is the winner!

Chelsea Crockett - Soda BoxesLastly, is a game called Soda Shoes.  Over the next week, save and collect some empty cases of soda boxes like the ones on the left.  These will be used as giant shoes!  Divide your guests into two relay teams.  Each player slips his/her feet into the “shoes” and races down and back for the relay.  The team whose players finish first wins!

Don’t forget to purchase some fun prizes to give to the winners of the games.  I hope these ideas help to make your party a success!

Good luck! – Chelsea

It’s that time of the year again! Time to celebrate the best three months of the year. What’s better to do just that than a summer kick-off party? Not just any party, but one that people will remember! This is where you get to show your creative side and can come up with an awesome theme for you and your guests! Here are a few of my favorite ideas:

  • Obviously if you have a pool, Chelsea Crockett - Glow Sticksthat gives you plenty enough to entertain your guests with! But instead of just your average pool party, buy a ton of glow sticks and spread them throughout your pool! It will be super cool and unique. Also, have your guests wear glow sticks and bright colors. There are many other things to make your party “glow,” just think outside the box!
  • One of the first things I think of when I hear the word summer is the smell of a delicious backyard barbeque. Hosting a backyard BBQ is perfect for a small get together. If you have a mom or dad that’s good on the grill, ask them to be the cook for the night! Your friends will have a blast :)!
  • In honor of the warm weather and hot sun, throw a beach/luau themed party! Everyone can come dressed with leis, swimsuits, and other fun accessories! Start a bonfire, put on some music, and sit back and relax. Your guests will love the simple theme that reminds them of being on the beach! What’s more summer than that?

Send me pictures of your summer festivities and let me know of any other fun ideas you come up with in the comment section below!  -Chelsea
