Red, White, and Blue; the Stars and the Stripes. The Fourth of July is America’s birthday and we all know how to throw her a fabulous party. While we may not be able to channel Taylor Swift and throw the most epic Fourth of July bash but we’re here to help you get close to T-Swift status.

If you’re having a gathering at your house with friends and family, go all out with the décor. Nothing is too patriotic when it comes to this holiday. Target and Etsy are going to be your friends when it comes to getting themed goods. Open your Bi-Folds, Multi-Slides, Lift and Slides, or French Swing Patio Doors and expand your party space. Leaving the doors open will create a smooth transition between indoors and outdoors and allow guests to mingle with ease.

Don’t just do burgers and hot dogs this year, by adding just a few minor tweaks to your basic favorites, everyone will be vying for the recipes you used. Let’s not forget dessert! Now is your time to channel your inner Martha Stewart and end the meal with a different kind of bang.


Fun Fact: Did you know it was almost the Second of July instead of the Fourth? Place small sheets of paper on everyone’s place setting and take turns reading fun facts to each other before eating.  Entertain the kids with fun games. They might be too young to know the true meaning of the holiday, but these games let them learn and have fun all at the same time.

While the kids are off having fun, let the adults sit back and enjoy a refreshing coctail. Be the best hostess by also incorporating the red, white, and blue theme into the drinks. The cocktails will be refreshing on a hot day but also totally Instagram worthy— perfect for your guests.

Spend the rest of the day snacking on food, playing games, and cooling off in the pool, relaxing on a floaty. Wear an American flag bathing suit to express your patriotism and enjoy the summer sunshine.

The fireworks are a wonderful time to gather the whole family and enjoy in the splendor of the colors of the show. Make sure you get good seats whether at the mall, the golf course, or at the beach. Keep little ones in sight and make sure to keep the animals feeling safe.
