EAT & MAKE || July 4th Coconut Cupcakes & Hand Lettered Decor

I’ve been teasing hand lettering and little illustration projects for our July 4th party, but the day is finally here! I created 3 cute hand lettered posters, illustrated some sunnies on matchboxes, and made a packaging for our giveaways: SPARKLERS!

I also baked up some coconut cupcakes with coconut cream cheese frosting from the Sprinkles bakebook. I swapped the shredded coconut for coconut flakes and gold stars.

We are hosting a BBQ at our house this year. We didn’t do any parade shenanigans.. and some of us are going out to partake in watching fireworks later tonight. We definitely don’t have traditions for July 4th. How do you all celebrate?
Found these cute Meri Meri Party straws and napkins at my local Marshalls.
Designed some sparkler giveaways (which we TOTALLY forgot to giveaway as everyone rushed out to watch the fireworks.. OOPS!) and also cute illustrations/patterns for matchboxes!july4th sparklers matchboxes graphic design decorjuly 4th matchboxes graphic design decorjuly 4th multicolor jello july 4th strawberry shortcake
