The 4th of July is coming. This is a perfect day to celebrate patriotism, and is one of the most important days in the US calendar. There are many things you can do to celebrate this special day. From drinks with friends to a barbecue with family, anything that brings together people in the spirit of the flag should be welcomed. Well, in case you are planning a party, we have a few ideas that may be very interesting to try out.
Every party needs popsicle cocktails. These cocktails can be made using several drinks but we recommend champagne. It’s after all a celebration and champagne does have a way of marking great events with style. You can also use sprite in case you will have kids around or people who don’t drink alcohol.

DIY Patriotic Napkin Rings
It’s very possible that the 4th of July party will attract a sizable crowd at home or whichever location you have decided to host the event. When you’re serving a big crowd, it’s always great to have a buffet with prepared cutlery. You can wrap the cutlery using simple DIY patriotic napkin rings to charm your guests with the red, white, and blue of the flag. This will be quite in line with the party’s theme and it will add color to the event.
Red, White, and Blue Fondant Sugar Cookies
A party needs a lot of food but most of the time it’s the creative dishes that really grab the attention of people. You can start your guests with simple red, white, and blue fondant sugar cookies before the main meal is served. The cookies can also be great for dessert.
What makes them unique is how they perfectly go with the event of the day. Red, white, and blue are the colors of the flag and any special event to celebrate nationhood should always feature these colors. How about mixing the colors up in fondant sugar cookies?
DIY Kraft Paper Chip Bags
Americans love chips and whether you are buying them from the supermarket or making them yourself, you will need a nice place to hold them as your guests enjoy every bite. Consider these simple DIY Kraft paper chip bags for a change. You can even find red, white, and blue printable bags online to go with the 4th of July theme.
Red, White, and Blue Rice Krispies Treats
We all love Rice Krispies, don’t we? But in the spirit of Independence Day, it would be great this time to ensure the Krispies are in the red, white, and blue patriotic colors. Add some icing and sprinkles and that’s it. The colors provide the perfect finishing touch that will delight everyone around.
