Fourth of July weekend is just around the corner. So what better way to celebrate the birth of our nation than with a backyard barbecue? Once you’ve transformed your outdoor living space, there’s only one thing left to do: party!
The perfect 4th of July celebration includes plenty of patriotic red, white and blue home decor. Add in fun games for the family and sweet treats to eat and you’ve got a party! Here are a few of our favorite 4th of July party ideas:
DIY Patriotic Home Decor Ideas
With a little paint, masking tape and some mason jars, it’s easy to make a fun and affordable DIY table centerpiece for your backyard soiree! We love these DIY Patriotic Mason Jars created by Melanie of Afloral.com.
For a fun, inexpensive way to add some 4th of July flair to your party, classic red, white and blue handkerchiefs can come in handy. Use them to make a pendant banner for decoration, stitch them together into a patriotic tablecloth or blanket, or wrap them around utensils to serve as napkins like blogger Kim from Too Much Time On My Hands did.
Not feeling crafty? Opt for red, white and blue accessories that look great in your home year round, like these stylish accents found at Woodstock Furniture & Mattress Outlet. Because our selection of home accents and accessories is always changing, be sure to stop by our Atlanta area stores often!
Easy 4th of July Treats to Make and Eat
Of course, you’ll want plenty of savory foods like hamburgers, hot dogs and potato salad at your backyard barbecue. But, dessert is where your creativity can really shine!
Pair some melted colored candy (easily available at craft stores like Michael’s) with Oreos and sprinkles to create these fun patriotic cookie pops your friends and family will love! For even more fun 4th of July party ideas, head to Happiness is Homemade for the full recipe.
Blogger Lindsay of Life, Love and Sugar knows how to throw an incredible America themed party. To start, she paired savory snacks like barbecue sliders and chips & dip with fresh watermelon, blueberries and strawberries. For dessert, she offered her guests candy-coated rice krispie treats, patriotic popcorn and a red, white and blue cake!
Independence Day Inspired Party Games
Because the 4th of July is a family affair, here are some backyard games that bring the gang together. Our friend Robin offered up some fun 4th of July party ideas for kids at her blog All Things Heart and Home. Her soda bottle ring toss game and coffee can knock ’em down activity can be made with items found around the house. You could even get the kids involved in making them!
The Perfect Finishing Touch
Summer here in the South means there’s always the chance of a torrential downpour. Need to take the party inside? No worries! With our expansive selection of rustic dining room sets and one-of-a-kind wood tables, your dining room can easily accommodate your celebration while maintaining a sense of outdoorsy style.
