Are you hosting a 4th of July party in your backyard this year? We’ve got fun decorations, food, and drink ideas your guests will love.
4th of July desserts
This 4th of July cake is made in under 30-minutes. It has fresh berries and homemade whipped coconut cream. Serve remaining fresh berries and cream on a tray or make a fresh berry parfait for those people who don’t eat cake, or are on a gluten-free diet. You can find my recipe at Make and Takes.
This strawberry cheesecake tart is the perfect addition to your 4th of July party. Strawberries are in season right now and if you’ve taken the kids strawberry picking then this is a great way to use them up.
This red, white, and blue cake may have been decorated for a Captain America party, but it’s also perfect for a 4th of July party too. Those individual popcorn tubs will be loved by kids too.
Red, white, and blue crafts
This 4th of July picnic or backyard barbecue caddy is so easy to make. Fill it with utensils, condiments, napkins, and more for your backyard party this year.
This backyard red, white, and blue windsock craft is perfect for kids to make and hang all the way around your back patio for your 4th of July party.
Use these hand-painted red, white, and blue rocks as weights on napkins and your tablecloth to stop everything from blowing away.
Looking for another fun idea? Set up a dip-dye station for everyone to make dip-dye t-shirts, in red or blue dye.
4th of July drinks
Patriotic pinwheel sippers in test tubes can be made alcoholic, or non-alcoholic in red or blue. Turn them into slushies, shots, or leave them as drinks.
A boozy white chocolate milkshake is the perfect addition to your 4th of July party. Sprinkle red and blue nonpareils on top, or simply add a red, white, or blue straw to make it fit the party theme.
A sparkling raspberry cocktail is perfect for backyard summer days on the patio. It’s light, refreshing, and there’s fresh fruit so it’s got to be good for you, right?
