Patriotic Stamps

Personalize your stamps by using one of the great zazzle patriotic stamps. Please be sure to bring a complete invitation, including all inserts, to a local post office to determine exactly how much postage is required. If you decide not to customize, please do not mix stamps. It is better to add too much postage than a hodgepodge of mismatched stamps. You have spent so much time and money on every other detail, the difference in price is not worth giving a sloppy first impression.

Best Ideas for a Fun, Patriotic Fourth of July | How to make Independence Day about more than just fireworks and parades

Our 2 favorite ideas from the article …

Do a patriotic good deed. Help de-litter your local park or seashore. “I believe my children will remember how they helped do things that are good for others, like clean up the beach, more than just watching the parade and fireworks,” says Wendy Griffiths, who this weekend plans to take her three daughters out with a garbage bag.

Hold a red, white and blue water balloon fight. Buy a few packages of water balloons and pick out the red, white and blue ones. Save the others for another day.

Party Hearty!
