Come Party With Me: 4th Of July - The Look & Music

Come Party With Me: 4th Of July - The Look & Music

The 4th of July is probably the easiest holiday party to decorate. The requisite red, white, and blue, stars, stripes, and American flags do all of the work for you. Every store in the nation is flooded with red serving platters, blue and white star tablecloths, American flag this and American flag that so weed through the options and find stuff that fits your need and goes along with your style. I'm not too into the patriotic look, so I'll only have the American flag on teeny toothpicks. White paper lanterns add soft lighting and beer will be placed in lots of little red buckets. The tablecloth is red and the tableware navy. Wrap red, white, and blue ribbon around your poles, banisters, and deck. Create floral arrangements with blue glass vases and red, white, and blue flowers. Decorate the space with red hurricane holders and fill with white pillar candles.

For music compile a list of songs related to America or the 4th of July. I'll be playing BuzzSugar's 50 Songs for 50 States playlist.

mlmoreno47 - doh! thanks so much for letting us know. This is what happens after too many happy hour drinks. and don't worry about being a brat, i'm glad you told us. Also, my mom TOTALLY said the "look it up" thing, it drove me absolutely up the wall. especially when it was "how do you spell...?" and she'd say "look it up" - how do i look it up when i can't spell it?!?

honey, I love you, and I hate to be a brat, but you wrote polls like voting polls and I think you meant poles like light pole. Sorry to bust your balls haha. When I was growing up I wasn't allowed to continue a sentence without correcting myself, also, my mother would never tell me what a word meant. She would simply say "Look it up".

4th of July is my birthday and I AVOID anything that is red white and blue. Just because I hate having to hear on commercials a month before my birthday that it's coming, or when I'm in the stores with all the decorations, that's it's coming. Especially this year. I am turning 30. :jawdrop: Not happy about it. Since my kids have their birthdays right next to mine, (June 30th and July 9th) we always have a BIG party to celebrate that instead. And it's never red white and blue. This year it's a Pirate/(my son wanted pirates) Luau/(my daughter wanted the luau) Mojito (ummm...for me!) party. :)

I love paper lanterns. They are so summery and festive for any outdoor party.
