Swoozies approach to July 4th entertaining runs the gamut from proud patriotism to just plain fun.  We’ve picked patterns that we haven’t found elsewhere.  Except for the stemless wine glass below, everything is sold in packaged sets.

The patterns above come in beverage napkins and stadium glasses.

This is what we mean by fun.  The stemless wine glass is “jumbo.”  It holds a whole bottle of wine.  The napkins are beverage size, and the cozy obviously just fits a regular 12 ounce can.  We just love the sentiment!

Find these items for July 4th entertaining in Swoozies stores and online at SW ENTERTAIN.



On the left above are patriotic cheese spreaders.  On the right are melamine stars & stripes salad/appetizer/dessert plates.  Both are sold in sets.

These July 4th beverage napkins are just beautiful, and unlike any we’ve seen elsewhere.

Both tablecloths above are plastic and 54” x 108”.

These two disposable dinner patterns are unlike any we’ve seen elsewhere.

The American flag appetizer picks on the left are 4-1/2” x 3” (larger than you usually find).  The fireworks picks on the right are 6” with 2-1/2” foil fringe (hard to find).
