Fireworks Celebration Day Tips!
  • Deck out your table with a creative centerpiece using your national colours:
    • a bright red or white vase with small flags and flowers will look beautiful and patriotic all at once!
    • a gingham table cloth will give any get-together a 'picnic' feel and fit right into your colour scheme.
    • of course, napkins, cups and plates are available everywhere!
    • think of foods that will add a patriotic flare - strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, red peppers, vanilla ice cream (of course!), red and white radishes, cauliflower ... let your imagination create the salad and desserts ... and don't forget that Jello comes in all different colours ... even blue!!
  • Top off the evening with your own community fireworks display ... carefully monitored and in a safe location, of course.
