Decorate Your Home for the 4th of July

Happy Fourth of July! America is having her birthday and it's a reason to have a party. Get Star-Spangled Banner inspired with creative table setting ideas and show off your patriotism with red, white and blue themed cocktails and foods. Even if you’re not hosting a meal in your home, there’s no reason not to decorate your door with a homemade wreath or your deck or porch with some flags. 

Get creative with table settings

Whether you're enjoying a merry barbeque on your deck, having a picnic by the lake or dining indoors, decorate your table to impress. Combine plain colors, stripes, polka dots, stars, and mini-flags. Use flowers, glassware, plates, table cloths, tablemats, and napkins to create a patriotic table setting. The only common theme needs to be red, white and blue.

Decorate your door with a patriotic wreath

Show off your love for America with a celebratory wreath. Hang it on your front door, patio or even your car. Many shops sell beautiful wreaths, but you can have lots of fun making your own. You can buy art supplies, use burlap or even recycle household goods like bottle caps to make a wreath that will stand out.

Make celebratory cocktails

Whether its alcoholic or not, a colorful drink in your hand will get you in the party mood. Freeze raspberries and blueberries to use instead of ice cubes, dye your lemonade blue, cut out star-shaped fruit pieces, or dip the edges of your cup in frosting. Have fun layering a cocktail using differently densed spirits and cream to create festive stripes.

Hang your flag festively

Make the entrance to your house Star-Spangled Banner themed by draping flags in the entryway. You can also go festive by decorating the porch, deck, patio, and windowsills. Include your plants in the action and stash old flags you have gathering dust in the garage in their pots. Vary flag sizes, or just accessorize with red, white and blue pieces.

Snack on red, white and blue treats

You don’t have to restrict your enthusiasm to the décor and drinks. Make your food burst with color and pride. Decorate cakes, cookies and cupcakes in blue, white and red frosting. Use strawberries, cherries and blueberries to decorate a mouthwatering pie.  For a healthier snack offer fruit skewers or platters, and arrange the pieces to look like a flag, or dip the tips of strawberries in cream with blue frosting.
