Celebrate the Fourth of July in style with our guide to everything red, white, and blue.
If there’s one event that brings Americans together over the summer, it’s the Fourth of July. Whether you plan on hosting a barbeque in your backyard, organizing a get-together at the beach, or watching fireworks with family and friends at a local park, you’ll want to be sure that you have everything you need to celebrate in style.
To prepare for your Independence Day bash, pull out all the stops with red, white, and blue party products. With the right supplies, you and your guests may just enjoy the most patriotic party on the block.
Celebrate the Fourth of July from the comfort of your own home with a patriotic barbeque for friends, family, and neighbors. Decorate to your heart’s content with red, white, and blue accents throughout your home and backyard: wrap patriotic ribbon around deck railings, gates, and other fixtures to set the scene. An elegant star garland hanging from your outdoor entryway or dangling from trees in the backyard will add some extra sparkle. And, of course, it isn’t a party without balloons — in red, white, and blue of course.
If you’re packing up the cooler and heading to the beach to celebrate Independence Day, you might want to leave the decorations at home. Instead, bring festive disposable products that will make it easy to enjoy your Fourth of July feast away from home.
Paper plates are obviously a must. Make sure yours can handle both hot and cold food, from fully loaded burgers to heaping helpings of potato salad. If you plan to spend your day staying cool and sipping drinks under the sun, pack cute paper straws — ours are available in a variety of colors. And when it’s time to raise a toast, you won’t want to be without these champagne flutes.
No Fourth of July gathering is complete without fireworks lighting up the night sky. If you’re planning on heading out to a local park to catch your town’s Independence Day celebration, you’ll want to bring disposable party supplies that are easy to transport on the go — paper plates, napkins, utensils and cups, just to name a few.
If you’re allowed to set off fireworks in your own backyard (check local laws before you do!), create a viewing area at a safe distance from the action. You can even set up chairs and rope off the area with ribbon or streamers so your guests can enjoy the show in safety and style.
Alternatively, if fireworks aren’t permitted in your neighborhood, create your own celebratory noisemakers with this DIY party popper tutorial. You’ll just need a few simple supplies: a mailing tube, patriotic tissue paper, balloons, and ribbon.
Whether you’re headed to the beach with friends or inviting the family over to your backyard for a BBQ, there’s no wrong way to celebrate the Fourth of July. Just make sure you have the supplies on hand to host a get-together to remember!
