Two hundred thirty-eight years ago our country celebrated the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Our forefather, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail on July 3rd saying, “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America…” he was ‘apt to believe’ that July 2nd would be celebrated by following generations forever more as the anniversary of our infant nation.
Sure, he was off by two days, but he was right on the money in regards to Independence Day becoming a holiday acknowledged by every citizen of this country for over two centuries since.
John Adams also said that Independence Day should be a day celebrated with ‘pomp, and parade’ and the people of this great Nation took that idea and flew with it!
Fineline Settings has been giddy to talk about this holiday because, let’s admit it… there are very few parties that are as fun as good ole Independence Day and as always, it’s our mission to help you make your upcoming celebration as spectacular as the evening fireworks show!
So, let’s party like it is 1776 but keep a modern twist with the luxury of premium plastic tableware!
Serve up those burgers with one of our Platter Pleaser Spatulas, or on one of our Thermoform Trays; with their simplistically chic and sturdy design, your burgers will always arrive in style no matter the theme of your event!
While you enjoy that corn on the cob, shake up the fun with one of our Quenchers Neon Shakers; and send your guests firing up into the sky like a firework as you pour their drink of choice into one of our Shooters, also from the Quenchers collection!
With so many collections to choose from, your reputation as a party planner will be recalled for generations to come as the Thomas Jefferson of event planning; and the mark that you will leave on your guests will be as indelible as John Hancock’s on the Declaration of Independence.

Classic Americana cannot be referenced without our minds drifting to Cracker Jack! Just saying it brings us back to an America where families spent summers at Coney Island and Baseball games. A time where every citizen celebrated being patriots every day of their lives.

Kids… they are our future, after all. It is up to us to encourage them to carry on the celebrations and traditions just as our parents did for us… and what better way to imprint on them than to have them help you cook up ideas that Kids activities Blog has come up with!
Jennifer, a mom of multiples and KaB poster, was kind enough to share her recipe for Sugar Cookie Bars. Not only are they easy, but they are absolutely unforgettable and will become a new favorite for years to come! Not to mention they look fabulous on a Platter Pleaser Cake Stand!
