What an incredibly cool idea for any theme party. Use color coordinating icings to go with whatever festivities you have planned.

My Share: Starry Laser Lights Halloween & Christmas
This is a really a great laser light decorating show system – so much better then the as-seen-on-tv versions. I have posted a video that shows all of the functions of this system. I used it inside against our silver Christmas tree and it looks awesome.
One of the best features is it’s ability to change the light presentation. You can go solid colors of blue, green or red. You can do patterns that blink or are steady or you can make it move at different speeds.
One of the best features I like is the quality. It is made of all metal – the actual light itself and the bracket that holds the light that you attach to wherever you want to place the light. My only concern with this unit is that the bracket that holds the light only had one hole to place a screw into. Around Salt lake City (where I live) it get windy and the snow can come down pretty hard. I drilled one additional hole on each side to give me three holes to anchor it well.
The lights themselves are very bright and can be seen even in the dusk of early evening. Some of these units get complaints that they are not bright enough except for when it is pitch black – not this unit. It covers such a wide space that one unit could do most whole home fronts unless you have many angles and nooks.
I will be able to use this on many different occasions and not be limited to just Christmas. The red or red and blue or the blue and green or the blue by itself will work for Halloween. Red and blue will work for parties for Fourth of July or Memorial Day. The all green, blue and red could be used for birthday parties.
If you are worried, like I was before purchase, that these laser light shows that blink might cause seizures then this unit is right for you. Its perfect because you can completely remove the movement or blinking or seriously bring motion and blinking to an almost standstill.
I would highly recommend this unit to anyone interested in buying a quality laser light show system for not just one holiday but pretty much all of them.
Halloween/Party Tree Hangables
You first need white stockings with each leg cut. Here we used white glow sticks added to a water balloon before filling. You could use multiple colors or you can buy all green for a different effect. Tie the top of the nylon and hang from a tree. I would think this makes a great decoration for a night time party as well. Around the Fourth Of July you can find red, white and blue. Green would work for St. Patricks Day and multi-colored would work for a birthday. Sometimes you can find all of one color and these can be used for specific color themes.
Happy 4th Of July
Wishing you all the best for the Fourth Of July – surrounded by family and friends. I also wish to thank all of the service embers who gave us their all and to those service members who are fighting for our liberties and freedoms as we speak. As we still to this day vow to defeat our country’s flag, our liberties and freedoms we must face all those who oppose as a united front. So while you are enjoying your cookouts and parties – take a moment to just think why you are here today with the right to have such festivities.
One Nation Under God we live
Think about all some had to give
We the people share freedom’s life
In a world of ever present strife
Be grateful to those who keep this true
Warriors of our red, white, and blue
They’re trained by those of great skill
Honed to perform, so strong their will
They show what love is all about
They’ll fight for us, there is no doubt
Defending bravely what we are
No holding back each heartfelt star
Highly praise these men and women
Giving thanks time and again
Those in uniform will always be
The golden pride of this country
Jello Red, White and Blue Treats
Use disposable clear cups and make blue jello – pour to almost one-third level and chill. Repeat with a cool whip layer and then a red layer of jello. Chill. You can add fresh (wash and dry before using) in the blue layer before it has thickened completely. Before serving add a whipped topping and one blueberry to the top.
