It may be the dog days of summer here in South Carolina, but that means the 4th of July is right around the corner. At our house, that means sticky watermelon seeds, lots of sweet tea, and of course, patriotic crafts! With the 4th a week away, it’s time to plan your own Independence Day Soirée!

Today on The Sweetest Occasion, (my go-to blog for all things festive and happy!), you can download two free patriotic printables. The first is a sheet of iron-on graphics for t-shirts, cloth napkins, clothes for the kiddos, whatever! The second is a thank you note to send to our armed forces. I love the idea of setting up a “note-writing station” at your party and asking guests to take a few minutes to thank a serviceman or woman. You can find both PDFs right here. Did I mention they are free and designed by yours truly?

And you can expect to much more where these came from! I am actually going to be contributing more designs to The Sweetest Occasion in the coming months! (Check out the About page…see? Legit.)

Love,
