Family barbeques and 4th of July parties are usually very casual, consisting of khaki shorts, t-shirts, summer dresses and bathing suits. There are also burgers, hot dogs, corn, watermelon and most importantly, fireworks! But, it doesn’t have to be that way! There are a number of ways to fancy up the 4th of July this year! Whether you are looking for something different this year, or just want a more adult oriented 4th of July, we have some great tips on how to fancy up the 4th!
- Instead of bland burgers and hot dogs, how about some steak and veggie kabobs, fresh corn salad and a red, white and blue trifle. Instead of beer and soda, choose more unique drink options such as various signature mix drinks or fruity water.
- Instead of paper plates and napkins, use some eclectic plates in shades of red, blue and white. There are a number of checkered cloth napkins easily available that are perfect to tie everything together along with some cute American decorations.
- Cutoffs and t-shirts aren’t always the most attractive attire to see your family and friends in. Why not make it a special occasion with some nice slacks and ties for the men and dresses or skirts for the women.
