Free Printable 4th of July Party Invitations
This list has to start with the 4th of July BBQ invites because that’s the first thing you need to do…invite your guests. These Independence Day party invitations are editable so you can fill in all your custom information.
Free Printable 4th of July Favor Tags
These free printable 4th of July gift tags will add the perfect little touch to your party favors or sparklers. They’re super easy to print out and cut. Put them on treat bags full of candy, smores, or fun little toys and stickers.
4th of July Party Painted Lawn Decorations
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 I have ever seen. 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 yard decoration if you’re not hosting a party. It’s the cutest!
Patriotic 4th of July Party Cooler
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.
Fourth of July Sangria Drink
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!
Patriotic Flag 4th of July Photo Booth
I found this set 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! This DIY American Flag Backdrop from Laughing Latte would be awesome for a photo booth backdrop! This is one of the 4th of July party ideas you don’t want to skip.
4th of July Party Fireworks Station
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

Fun Independence Day Outdoor Game
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.
Delicious Patriotic 4th of July Dessert
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!
Keep Your Drink Cool In The Pool With Floating Flag Drink Holders
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.
Fourth Of July Fireworks Fun Bags
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.
