We’re seeing lots of red, white and blue! That can only mean one thing: the 4th of July weekend is finally here! We’ve pulled together some easy ideas to make your Independence Day party the talk of the neighborhood. Whether you’re entertaining for your immediate family or hosting a larger gathering, these party ideas aim to please.
Red, White, and Blue Balloon Ice
A 4th of July party isn’t complete without some cold dishes. Whether it be potato salad or ice cream, keep those dishes cold with this clever balloon ice technique. Fill red, white and blue balloons with water and freeze them overnight. Carefully place them on a tray or in a bowl and place your cold dish between the balloons. Voilà! You have outdoor refrigeration with a colorful twist.
DIY Party Favor Rockets
Looking for something fun to put at each place setting? These gorgeous DIY Party Favor Rockets are easy to make and your guests will love them! All you need is some red, white and blue construction paper, toilet paper rolls, glue, crepe paper and patriotic candies to put inside. The only limit to the design is your imagination.
4th of July Bingo
Games can be a great way to entertain adults and children alike. Why not play a game that even our Founding Fathers would love? 4th of July Bingo is a fun twist on a classic game that puts all the holiday staples like hamburgers, fireworks, and American flags in one place. Guests will have a great time playing throughout the evening. Don’t forget the prizes!
Ice Cream Sandwich Bar
Let’s face it, you can’t have a 4th of July party without ice cream. So, why not take it up a notch by creating an ice cream sandwich bar? You just need toasted waffles, a few different flavors of ice cream, melted chocolate, an assortment of sprinkles, and nuts or chocolate chips. Everyone will be able to make an ice cream sandwich that is as unique as they are!
Paint Your Lawn with Stars
If you really want your party to pack a punch, include your lawn in your party decorations. Spray painting red, white, and blue stars on your lawn will make a big statement and give your guests a real treat. You can use the stars as directional markers, make a game out of them, or just have them as a decoration.
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters, and sharing fun ideas to create meaningful experiences with friends, family, and neighbors is just one way we fulfill our Vision. Happy 4th of July!
