Three cheers for the red, white, and blue! But you don’t have to be from the USA to try some of these fun and colorful party ideas for the summer.
You can do this with just about any kind of fruit. Keep in mind, the softer the fruit, the harder it will be to make nice scoops! For the upcoming holiday, watermelon is the perfect, refreshing choice. How to work it with other occasions: Play around with color to match the theme of your party. Try kiwi, honeydew, or cantaloupe!
Like Donkey always says, who doesn’t love parfait? Layers and layers of goodness, parfait makes a delectable treat for all party guests. For the Fourth of July, follow this recipe by Martha Stewart. To change it up for other events, experiment with different colored gelatin, food coloring, and fruit selections.
Drinkable Science Experiment
This multi-colored drink may look difficult to make, but it’s all simple science! The trick is to layer different colored liquids with varying densities. The densest liquids will sink to the bottom and the lighter ones will float to the top. Follow this simple step-by-step recipe on how to make these cool drinks! Again, mix and match different drink ingredients and food coloring to achieve your desired color scheme.
One of the latest trends in the food world is making pictures or images using smaller pastries. Here you see the American flag made out of little tarts. Other popular choices are cupcakes. These may look complicated to put together but nothing is impossible with a bit of planning. First draw out your image and divide it into a grid. Make sure to carefully mark how many pastries you’ll need and exactly what colors/designs need to go where for the whole thing to come together.
The Perfect Bite
Everyone loves itty bitty snacks that you can easily pop into your mouth in one bite. Make sure to offer lots of bite-sized minis at your parties because they go fast! Cake pops, jello in fun shapes and colors, and other delicious h’orderves will have everyone talking about your events. For Independence Day, go with the red, white, and blue theme with stars and stripes. For other events, try cute heart shapes and bright colored frosting.
Don’t be afraid to get creative! Your guests will notice and definitely appreciate all your hard work spicing up a party. What party ideas are you using this summer?
