Can you believe that 4th of July is right around
the corner? Combine the holiday and the warmer weather and we are officially
into barbecue and summer party season.

When I’m hosting a party, I admit I’m a total sap for coming
up with themed food or drinks to make my get together more festive.

If you’re looking for ideas to spice up your 4th
of July BBQ, well then you’ve come to the right place!

One of my favorite ideas is red,
white and blue Jell-O cups
. Not only are they pretty to look at, but they
also are super easy to make.  Our tall shot
glasses
make the perfect container for this beautiful summer treat. They
would look even better engraved
with fireworks, the American flag, stars or another patriotic symbol.

If you’re a fan of ice cream floats, then this Firecracker Float
is for you! We recently made Guinness
Floats
at work for a birthday
celebration
and discovered that our handled
mason jars
held the perfect amount of ice cream and accompanying
drink/toppings.

Looking for something refreshing in a liquid form? This layered
tri-color drink
is perfect. I recommend using our versatile 16 oz. pint
glasses
for serving.

Are you more of a decoration person? Well then, here is one last easy idea.  All you need is some rice, food coloring,
jars and a couple tea lights to spice up your festivities. We have round mason
jars
that are the perfect size and shape for this beautiful and simple
decoration.

All of our glassware is fully customizable
and can be decorated with either elegant
engraving
or colorful
screen printing
.

No matter what you do this 4th of July, all of us
at Glass With a Twist wish you all the best!
