Fireworks, fun carnivals and fancy parades. We’re celebrating 4th of July, the most patriotic holiday of the American calendar. Synonymous with the American flag, white, red and blue are colors you’ll find around cities and commercial establishments like coffee shops and restaurants. This national day of importance is most commonly associated with parades and other summer-themed events.
So American: A patriotic garden party
What better way to pump up the American spirit than celebrating with friends and family. Host a cook-out dinner and serve traditional corn-on cob with barbecue burgers and roasted potatoes on the side.
No American party is complete without a scrumptious desert. This Independence day, you can get more creative and serve your guests cupcakes and cream pies with red and blue sugar sprinklers. Red and white candy sticks with red and black strawberries and blueberries will become a real hit at your party.
A true festive mood
You can also decorate your home with streamers, banners and balloons in festive colors. Votive candle holders are an interesting trend, that is fast picking up in most homes. These bright accessories are sure to light your party. Add bows and ribbons to mason jars and vases for fun, cheerful touch.
Parties and games for the little ones
Roasting marshmallows on the a bonfire is certainly to kids. If you plan to host a small family get-together with friends and cousins, you can also organize games.
A subtle hint of shimmer never hurt anyone.
Whether you’re a resident of Florida or New York, watching the beautiful fireworks display is the perfect ending to a charming 4th of July party. Or better yet, you create your own miniature version by lighting sprinklers and fireworks.
