The 4th of July is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about some 4th of July Party Ideas! This patriotic holiday is all about getting festive with red, white and blue. And I have a few simple (and gorgeous!) 4th of July party ideas that are festive and fabulous!
Create a Signature Cocktail
Keep things simple and tasty with a 4th of July signature cocktail. I love this Red, white and blue sangria recipe from Gimme Some Oven, which features raspberries, blueberries and apples cut into festive star shapes.

Another take on the 4th of July signature cocktail is this watermelon margarita recipe. The watermelon is truly the star here, which has been hollowed out and filled with a yummy homemade margarita recipe!

Host a Backyard BBQ

Serve Sweet Treats
Incorporate red, white and blue into your 4th of July food ideas by serving up some themed dessert. Fresh berry vanilla cake features layers of blueberries and strawberries wedged in between whipped cream for a light and fruity treat everyone will love.
This triple berry trifle cake, which is a classic 4th of July food idea. It’s another light and fruity option and easy to put together.
Now that you have your menu figured out, how are you going to decorate? If you have white dishes, that’s a great place to start. You can add in blue and red with napkins, tablecloths and food!
Fill a blue vase with fresh flowers. Swap out your everyday dish towels for some with patriotic colors!
Pack a picnic basket and settle in for a fourth of July parade or a fireworks celebration. Take along some miniature American Flags to wave at all the participants.
Fill your day with good food, family and friends and have a happy 4th of July!
