4th of July Party Ideas

My first super cool find are these amazing DIY Painted Lawn Stars by the Concrete Cottage! I think this is one of the best 4th of July party ideas ever. I’ve never seen it at any party I’ve been to. I think your guests will be impressed. I love that they use red, white and blue. It makes it so festive! You could even do it as a decoration even if you’re not hosting a party. It’s the cutest!
This Inflatable Cooler will be so handy! It’s such a pain having to dig around in a cooler for the drink you’re looking for. It holds about 50 drinks and floats and your drinks are on display so you can avoid crawling into the cooler head first to find your drink! Imagine how great it would look on display for your party. The other thing I think this would work awesome for is to keep cold food cold for your outdoor party. You could just put your ice in and nestle your bowls or serving dishes in the ice.
This sparkling red white and blue sangria recipe from Gimme Some Oven is to die for! I’ll admit I’m a sucker for sangria. I’m not a wine drinker normally, but sangria is a whole other story. If you have adults who drink coming to your party, you’ve got to try this recipe. I also totally love how she cut the apple slices with a star cookie cutter! It makes the drinks look so festive paired with the berries!
I found 2 sets of photo booth props that look like so much fun! I seriously love photo booths at parties. You can usually find me in about a million pictures with different props in each one. My sister’s wedding had the best photo booth. They had more props than you could count. Everyone had a great time dressing up and acting silly. The best part is kids and adults both will have fun with it. They also used an app that would email the picture to whoever was in the photo. That was a really cool feature so the host doesn’t have to send the pictures to each person individually! Here are the funny props I found. And this set is even more hilarious! This DIY American Flag Backdrop from Laughing Latte would be awesome for a photo booth! This is one of the 4th of July party ideas you don’t want to skip.
This Fun & Games Station from Uncommon Goods is a great way to display fireworks for your guests. I love the use of snap, crackle, pop for the display. This would be so easy to do with just a few jars and any kind of labels. And you can’t have a 4th of July party without sparklers! Pair this display with the 4th of July table runner below and your table will look so cute!
Of course you have to have your tables decorated! This table runner is great for indoors or outdoors. If you haven’t already seen my 4th of July Table Runner, you need to check it out! It’s a super easy DIY that is so cute! It is very inexpensive to make and your guests are going to love it.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep both the kids and adults entertained at parties. This Bean Bag Toss Game is fun for all ages. I love that they look like flags. It would be a great game for any outdoor party even after the 4th of July has passed. This type of game always seems to be a hit with everyone at our family parties. We line up to try to defeat the winner of the previous round.
What’s a party without an amazing dessert? These cheesecake stuffed strawberries from Dessert Now Dinner Later are delicious! And keeping with the patriotic theme, they fit right in! Berries are in season which makes these taste even more flavorful. They look amazing on display too!
If you have a pool, you can’t have a pool party without a beach ball! This patriotic one is great for your 4th of July party. I’ve seen other red, white and blue beach balls, but I love that this one has stars on it. And don’t forget these floating drink holders! I love these! I mean you have to have a drink floating next to you while you lounge in the pool! This way you can keep your sangria close by at all times.
Last but definitely not least, you’re going to want to make these Fireworks Fun Bags from Eighteen 25 for when you go watch fireworks. If you really want to impress your guests, this will be the thing! It’s like movie snacks for the fireworks show. It would be fun to have some cute glow in the dark things in there or glow sticks.
I hope you’ve found my 4th of July party ideas helpful! If you use even a few of these ideas, your party is going to be so awesome! I can’t wait to hear how it goes! I hope you have a great time with your family and friends. Happy 4th of July!!!
