4th of July Fun

4th of July

It’s a magical time of year–fireworks, BBQs, pool parties and fun on the beach. It’s a time for getting together with your friends and family to laugh, eat and celebrate our independence. Read on for some great ideas for entertaining your 4th of July guests.

Crank up the Grill

Two words come to mind for 4th of July: Fireworks and BBQ, and not necessarily in that order! In addition to the summer staples–hamburgers and hot dogs–why not try something new this year? Try this Ultimate Barbecued Chicken and be sure to impress. Molasses and brown sugar set this recipe apart from the rest. For a delicious and unique main dish give this Sweet Cola Ribs Recipe a try. For a quick, easy and nutritious side dish, just slice up some eggplant and zucchini, coat in olive oil, season with salt and pepper and throw it on the grill. Yum!

Entertaining

What’s a 4th of July get-together without all your favorite family and friends? If you’re entertaining this year, try out these creative party ideas. Instead of just serving boring beer to your adult guests give these Fun 4th of July Cocktails a try. And don’t forget the music–make a patriotic themed playlist with songs like ‘Born in the USA’ and ‘Bye Bye American Pie’.

Setting the Scene

Why not have fun with your 4th of July party this year? String up some red, white or blue holiday lights in your backyard for a festive touch. Miniature American flags scattered along backyard paths is a nice touch. For centerpieces, pick a beautiful and festive flower arrangement to set the mood. Surround with boxes of sparklers for an extra fun touch!

    I enjoyed reading all of your posts. You guys are sharing some really great ideas, especially around those busy holidays when there is hardly any time to think of something creative to do on your own! I will definately be trying the BBQ chicken and cocktail recipes for my Fourth of July get together this year!!

  2. Just found your blog and I must say you have some great writing here. I really like the idea of what you put together… Flowers, gifts, recipes, crafts and more? You must be very creative:) I consider myself to be a lil creative as well. Maybe we could do a link exchange between our sites. My readers would really like your ideas. Would that be okay with you? If it is ok, drop me an email. If it’s not, that’s ok too. In any case, keep up the good work and I’ll bookmark your site so I can find you when I need to send some flowers:)
    Cheers from Wyo!
