for food, drinks, dessert, and decor that are sure to wow your guests. Check ‘em
out below and get ready to party like it’s 1776!
String these beautiful kites up all around your home. Hang them from doorways,
across tables, along fences, or even just up on the wall. They’ll add a fun,
rustic feel to any 4th o
f July party!
– Not only are these fabulous decorations little ones can help with, they’ll
look lovely dotted along your walkway or in a planter. Try making one today!
When you’re unsure how to decorate for a party the best person to go to is
Martha Stewart. We adore her paper fan decorations. They’re light and airy
and are a unique take on the traditional bunting you’ll see throughout your
up your party in the most patriotic way! These luminaries are beautiful and simple to make.
– Serving red, white, and blue food doesn’t mean you have to use artificial
coloring. We are huge fans of these little snacks. Blackberries, strawberries,
brie, and a balsamic honey glaze combine on your favorite pizza dough to create
this delicious morsel. Your guests will be blown away!
Hosting a BBQ to celebrate the 4th? Hotdogs are probably already on
your menu, but let us suggest trying this amazing recipe. These bacon wrapped
dogs are loaded
toppings; we’re sure they’ll be a hit!
may be easy to put a flag inspired cake together, but what about a lasagna?
That’s right, we said lasagna. Surprise party goers with an equally delicious
and patriotic dish.
– Speaking of main courses than can be shaped like the American flag, you’ve
got to cook up this bacon flag pizza! There’s no such thing as having too many
American flag shaped dishes, and we’re sure folks will go nuts over this one!

July party! Now it is on the strong side, so do drink responsibly.

young at heart. It is a little more complex to make (there’s science
involved to help keep your colors separated), but we think the end result is
Surprise friends and family with these little guys. The cherry in the center
makes it almost look like a firework! What could be better for the 4th of
Here’s another red, white, and blue concoction! Mix lime soda, blueberries, and raspberries together with a Pop Rocks rim. It might be super
sugary, but it’s also super festive – and there’s real fruit in it!
a guest with a gluten allergy? They can still enjoy a patriotic dessert! These
Rice Krispies treats may be gluten free but they’re full of fun!

Serve it up at your party and let your guests decide!
– Celebrate Independence Day with the ultimate ice cream sandwich. There’s
nothing like watching fireworks on a warm July day with friends and family
enjoying a sweet, refreshing, treat.
– If you’re looking for a cool snack that will leave you feeling less guilty
than those ice cream sandwiches, we’ve got just the thing: yogurt popsicles. All
you need is raspberries, blueberries, and vanilla flavored Greek yogurt. They aren’t too bad for your beach body, but they’re still
fun and festive.
