I can't believe it is finally Friday! Last night my friend Lindsey and I went to a fun Girl's Night Cocktail and Jewelry party hosted by my friend Bambi. I always have so much fun when I go over there. The hostess just redid her backyard patio area and it is the perfect outdoor setting for any get together.
And of course you can't have a great cocktail hour without some semi-appropriate napkins. I also loved the wine charms that were available. You can find great cocktail napkins, like these and also holiday ones, as well as decorative wine charms at most any boutique store. 

And with those great beverage napkins you have to have a great drink. I found some amazing 4th of July Inspired drinks from Real Simple's blog Simply Stated and a patriotic DIY craft that you can make for you mason jars that I can't wait to try out! 
1. Fourth of July Cocktail from Guy Fieri; 2. Strawberry Sucker; 3. Watermelon Mint Cooler; 
4. Patriotic Margartia; 5. Red, White and HPNOTIQ Blue Martini

These drinks from Real Simple are beyond festive for the 4th of July Holiday. When it comes to getting the layered look in your drink it is important for your liquids to be of different densities (middle school science class flashback!). The one with the most sugar will fall to the bottom while the one with the least will stay on top (you also will need to pour them in that order).
These DIY drink lids that I found on the blog Two Shades of Pink was another 4th of July inspiration that I could just not pass up sharing. You could even serve your patriotic drinks in them.

Are you going to try any of these drinks for the 4th? Share your favorite holiday/summer inspired drink concoctions below! Don't forget to follow my posts and inspirations on Pinterest @PreppyPlanner and also on Twitter @PreppyPlanner. You will not want to miss out!
