4th of July inspired: Sparkler send-offs

July 4, 2011

If last night proved anything in my neighborhood it was that nothing says 4th of July like pyrotechnics. Well, that and the fact that illegal fireworks aren’t heavily prosecuted in the city of Chicago. Geeeez. Despite the fact that my ears are still ringing and my cat won’t come out from under the bed, I’m still inspired by these fun, festive, and patriotic sparkler send-offs.

The Perfect Palette has a lot of other fun send-off ideas. Personally I’m loving the ribbons. Go check it out!

And now a friendly public service announcement:

  • Have a bucket filled with water or sand for easy disposal. Once the sparklers have cooled, you can throw them in the trash.
  • Go with a 14″ or 20″ sparkler so they’ll be long enough to burn through the send-off.
  • Always, always, always check with your venue to make sure sparklers are allowed and if there are any specific handling/usage requirements. You don’t want to end up with a pretty send-off AND a pretty fine.

Happy 4th of July, lovelies! Be safe out there. And if you happen to live in Chicago and own fireworks that sound like bombs are being dropped from the sky, please refrain from shooting them from your front porch/alley/crowded street. Thank you.
