Super Easy 3 Step 4th of July Party

Does everyone keep asking, “What are you doing for the fourth?” Still don’t have plans? Want to do something fun and different at some point during this long weekend?

It’s not too late to throw together a great 4th of July party with a minimal amount of work.

Here are some photos of an “American Flag” themed party I helped some friends put together using my list.

Here’s my 3 step plan for an awesome 4th of July party:

1. Order decorations on Amazon Prime! This makes it sooo easy to get everything ready. I created this list of prime-friendly buys, and since I love dressing on-theme, I even included some outfit ideas!

2. Head to the grocery store and keep it simple. Your friends just want to hang, you don’t need to try new recipes or spend the time painstakingly creating an American Flag tart out of berries (unless you want to, of course!)

Pick up some burger patties, cheese, buns, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, mustard and ketchup. Grab a veggie tray, pre-made potato salad, and some apple pies. Grab a watermelon. Stick to red roses or white hydrangeas and decorate them with some mini flags. For drinks, get sodas, some beers and a couple of bottles of rose or prosecco, and you’re ready to go! (I usually estimate that each person will have 1/2 a bottle of wine if you don’t know how much to buy.) I also love making punches, and that is a great job to give someone that asks what they can bring! I also usually have anyone that asks bring a salad, side or dessert and dress everything up on pretty plates, platters or bowls.
