Simply Chic Fourth of July Entertaining Ideas
Compliments of Brian Patrick Flynn
This Independence Day try using red, white and blue in new, unexpected ways to create an American summer soiree. Consider these entertaining ideas to make your gathering both patriotic and practical.
Red, White and Blue Refreshments
Think of cold beverages as a decorating opportunity. Chill berry-flavored bottled juices or sodas in metal tubs filled with ice; you'll not only keep guests cool but also sneak in a few extra red, white and blue touches to carry the party's patriotic theme.
Sun Supplies Station
With the harsh summer heat and intense rays of the sun in full effect, it's important your Fourth of July guests remain hydrated and UV-protected. Keep outdoor essentials nearby with a supply station stylishly stocked with rolled towels, sunblock and ice-cold water.
Popsicles are a perfect treat for an outdoor summer soiree. Make your own Fourth-of-July-style Popsicles by pouring red or blue fruit juices into Popsicle freezer trays. To ensure they taste fresh and are fully frozen, pop the trays into the freezer one night prior to entertaining.
Ombre Party Linens
Give your plain white placemats and napkins a modern and patriotic update. Dip-dye using red- and blue-colored dye for a stylish look that can be used all summer long.
Enjoy these smart and patriotic entertaining options for your next Red, White and Blue soiree...
