Tips for Planning your 4th of July BBQ
It's officially SUMMER! Pool Time and BBQs rule and the 4th of July is just around the corner.
By now you know we LOVE a good bash so we put together some ideas on how to set up and decorate your 4th of July celebration...no worries if you haven't started planning it yet, we have LOTS of options for you here!
Traditional decor is great but not required! We love to mix things up when we decorate so throw in some pops of color with the classic red, white & blue. Below we set a table using several combinations and materials ~ a sequin runner adds a touch of glam while a burlap runner is classic Americana, the striped runner is modern and clean and really speaks to the theme!
*Note: All of the tableware in the photos above is available in our Shop!
Choose one area to Setup and Decorate. Place food and beverages in one area and make that the focus of your decor. Adding florals and a tablecloth or runner changes the look and feel. Add some pinwheels, a garland, balloons and a banner on the wall and you have a complete setup!
Set the table! We LOVE a good table setting! A colorful table makes such an impression and really conveys the theme of the party. Tableware doesn't have to match exactly, alternating colors and prints makes the table more fun and we always like a good party favor in the mix like these Confetti Crackers and Party Horns.
Keep the menu simple! Burgers are universal BBQ food (yes, veggie and turkey burgers count!), pair them up with grilled veggies, a salad, chips and TA DA it's a meal! Get creative with burger toppings and have guests build their own, this makes it interactive and gives everyone options! If your crowd likes adult beverages (YUM!) it's totally ok to ask them to BYOB, this ensures you have a variety of options and lets guests be their own bartenders.
Entertain the Kids! Remember those summer days when we'd play outside for hours? A Slip and Slide is the perfect activity on a hot day ~ for the kids and the brave adults. Yard games and water balloons are an inexpensive and easy way to keep kids cool, having fun...and outside!
