10 Fourth of July Party Ideas

June 27, 2018

By Tab Byrum

One week from today is our nation’s birthday, 242 years old, and it’s my favorite Summertime holiday. 4th of July was always a big deal for my family growing up, we always went to my Grandma’s house and she would have a couple of ice cream freezers going, frying chicken and everyone else would bring side dishes. Today I thought I would share some fun ideas I’ve recently found to help you make your 4th of July Party even MORE fun. Whether it’s food on a stick or fun straws, fruit dishes, decorations or something you can accomplish with spray paint or a quick trip to the party store, I’ve got you covered. Get out a pencil and paper to take notes or start googling and let’s make this the best 4th EVER!!!! Enjoy!!!! (via)

Rice Krispy Treats are on everyone’s list of fun and easy desserts. Here you take them to the next level by cutting them into squares and using striped straws inserted into the treats as handles. Dip the treats in melted white chocolate that’s been colored red and blue then add sprinkles. (via)

Patriotic sprinkles come into play for this fun and easy dessert. Use store-bought ice cream sandwiches and dip their edges in the sprinkles. You could wrap them back in wax paper and store them in the freezer until ready to serve. (via)

Get out your cookie cutters for this one. Slice watermelon in large slices and use a star cookie cutter to create star-shaped pieces of melon. Then, using a skewer put several blueberries on the skewer and top with your Watermelon Star. (via)

White chocolate is used here, dip about 2/3’s of the strawberry in white chocolate then roll the bottom part of the berry in blue-tinted sugar. Instant Red, White, and Blue. (via)

This is a job you could give to the older kids to take care of. Fill a big metal or plastic tub with water balloons and have ready for kids of all ages to entertain themselves for a while. (via)

I really like this idea!! If you sew or know someone who does you can create a fun 4th of July tablecloth using Red, White, and Blue bandanas. (via)

This is a centerpiece you could make using different or all matching vases or even Mason jars and flowers from the grocery store. Fill the vase or jar with water, add a few drops of blue food coloring and arrange your white daisies and red carnations. If you’re feeling really patriotic add a small flag that’s available at all the craft and Dollar stores right now. (via)

This is another fun idea using canning jars. Dye rice Red and Blue and then layer it in jars with white rice and top with a tea light candle. (via) Click here for some quick and easy instructions on dying rice different colors

This is a fun centerpiece idea, buy red and blue Tootsie Roll POPs, stick a styrofoam ball in a small bucket and insert the lollipop sticks in the foam to create a Red and Blue bucket of fun. (via)

And remember, there are all kinds of fun decorations available right now at all the craft stores and party supply stores, the ones in the photo are available at The Parties That Pop on Etsy. You can find garlands and paper fans to decorate walls or hang them from light fixtures or on the poles of your patio cover. (via)

I hope I’ve given you some fun ideas you can use at your celebration next week with friends and family. Don’t stress about it, just make a list and get as much done ahead of time as possible. Have a great day and Enjoy!!!

Words are my own.
