4th July Party Ideas

Keep it patriotic and 4th of July inspired without going overboard! Simple decorations like small flags and some bunting work wonders without looking overdone.

Keep things easy and break out the cooler! Fill it with sodas, beer and water and let guests serve themselves. To keep everyone hydrated, we created pre-made ice waters in Weck jars. For the ice cubes, we made them with strawberries and blueberries to add to our 4th of July color scheme.

Fresh flowers are always a must! And don’t forget the sparklers! It just takes a little preparation and inspiration to create a charming and modern 4th of July party that your guests will love!
