4th of July Porch Party and a Giveaway!

When Shindigz.com contacted me and asked me to try out some of their products, 

I knew right away what I wanted to use them for…



After all, what’s more American than an ice cream sundae on a summer day…enjoyed on your front porch?!!

With a few festive items from Shindigz, I was able to throw together a fun, casual get-together

that anyone can easily pull off.

Using their sundae glasses, star confetti, and some American flags, 

I set up a DIY milkshake station.

To keep things super simple, I made the milkshake mixture ahead of time, and kept it in the freezer until we were ready to serve it.  Easy peasy!

You could also freeze the glasses ahead of time to get them nice and frosty…perfect for a hot summer day!

Keeping with the red, white, and blue theme, cherries, blueberries, and sprinkles were just the toppings we needed for our milkshakes.

Super cute gingham napkins were used as a table runner, of sorts, 

and anchored our sundae glasses on the table.

The star confetti was really fun to play with!

I added it to the straws to give them some patriotic pizzazz, 

and I also used them to decorate the toppings crate.

Of course, I scattered some on the table for good measure, too.  🙂


I transformed a section of the porch into a patriotic photo booth.

Such fun and a super easy way to add a festive feel to the party, and the photos make great keepsakes!

Shindigz sells them in packs of 8 and they’re so affordable!

If you have a cake or cupcakes at your celebration, these would make excellent cake toppers, 

otherwise, they’re lots of fun to play with!
