Fourth of July weekend is just days away! Celebrate in the most fun and festive way–throw a patriotic picnic! Gather up your family and closest friends and get your red, white and blue on! Here are some ideas to ensure your party goes off without a hitch:
Store Your Drinks: As temperatures heat up, stay cool by enjoying an ice cold beverage. To keep things merry, serve your guests red and blue refreshments and display them in a red wagon. This will add an extra special touch to your decor, keep things organized and make the beverages easy to transport.
Set A Festive Table: Get your guests in the mood by dressing your table in red, white and blue! Throw on a stars and stripes tablecloth and pair it with patriotic plates, napkins and plasticware! Don’t forget to top your tables with cute citronella candles like these to keep the bugs away and add some pizazz.
Make Your Own Games: With every picnic comes the chance to take part in some outdoor fun and games with your friends. Set up your own ring toss by arranging red and blue bottles in a bucket and let the friendly competition begin.
Shine on: Make a party favor for all of your guests by tying up a bunch of sparklers with a striped ribbon and attach their name on it. These make great seating cards and when the sun goes down, your guests can join in the firework fun!
Keep The Food Colorful: Stick to your Americana theme and prepare foods that are- you guessed it- red, white and blue! This flag made out of cupcakes is an easy way to impress your partygoers, while these star-spangled fruit kabobs are a healthier alternative and tie everything together!
