Fun Ideas for This Year's Fourth of July Party

Even though it’s not even June, it’s never too early to start thinking about what you’re doing for the Fourth of July.

Do you think you might host a party for this year’s Independence Day festivities? If so, here are some ideas for the celebration.

Since this holiday occurs during the peak of summer, you need to have plenty of cold refreshments available for your guests. And since it is a holiday that revolves around the colors red, white, and blue, why not make your drinks match the theme? You can make a drinkable American flag by mixing cranberry juice, blue Gatorade Frost, and 7-Up in a big jug. You may not be able to layer the drinks in the specific red, white, and blue order due to the liquid consistency. However, you can layout each option at your bar. These drinks are perfect for the sweet-tooth at your party, and it's kid-friendly. If you’re not having children at your celebration, feel free to choose more adult drink options.

Since you’re getting festive with your drinks, you can also match the theme with your desserts. An ice cream buffet is a great way to celebrate the holiday while keeping everyone cool. Bring out vanilla, strawberry, and blueberry ice creams, along with whipped cream, sprinkles, and cherries. Place all of them on a table in the shade so people can get their frozen treat whenever they want. Make sure you have plenty of ice cream containers on hand so your guests have something to put their ice cream in. The ice cream containers you choose may also come with lids, which can be a big help for those wanting to take their dessert home. Even though June is the month that most ice cream is produced, July may be a better month for consumption.

This is one holiday where you can go crazy with decorations. Buy a bunch of American flags and place them in holders as a table setting. Pick up red, white, and blue plates, napkins, bowls, and cups. Your cutlery doesn’t have to be any of those three colors, but you can still make them festive with the use of a bandanna. Arrange each cutlery setting and wrap them up in a white, blue, or red bandanna. Secure the bandanna with twine to keep everything in place. The bandannas will look cute and also serve as a napkin alternative.

The Fourth of July will be here before you know it, so it’s best to start party planning now. Your party wouldn’t be complete without an ice cream bar with ice cream containers, an American-flag inspired drink, and plenty of red, white, and blue decor.
