Have a Star-Spangled Holiday Weekend

Have a star-spangled holiday weekend when you celebrate Independence Day. You can host a fun and festive Fourth of July party right in your own backyard this year! Here are some ideas to make your festivities sparkle.

Patriotic Decorations

Transform your space with red, white, and blue decorations. Hang American flags, string up star-spangled banners and lights. DIY festive Americana centerpieces using mason jars filled with red, white, and blue flowers.

All-American BBQ

Fire up the grill for a classic American BBQ. Serve burgers, hot dogs, and corn-on-the-cob. Add side dishes like coleslaw and potato salad. Don’t forget a dessert table with themed treats like flag cupcakes.

Fun and Games

Keep guests entertained with backyard classic games like cornhole, horseshoes, or a water balloon toss. For kids, create a patriotic craft station where they can make their own flag placemats before you eat.

Outdoor Movie Night

As the sun sets, set up an outdoor movie screen and projector. Choose a family-friendly, patriotic movie and provide cozy blankets and popcorn for a memorable viewing experience under the stars.

Music and Dancing

Create a festive playlist with classic American tunes and patriotic songs to play during your party. Encourage guests ahead of time to send you their favorites, so everyone is included.

By incorporating some of these ideas, you’ll create lasting memories of your Fourth of July party that everyone will enjoy as they celebrate the day with fun and friendship!
