Come Party With Me: Fourth of July — The Look

When selecting the decorations for a Fourth of July barbecue, be careful not to get carried away with the stars and stripes theme. Choose a few key pieces and use navy, red, and white as accents.

Start by covering the tables in a plaid Americana print tablecloth. Serve the food on large navy rimmed platters and stack white plates nearby. Cloth napkins make a barbecue feel chic and sophisticated. Set up the mojito bar and glasses on a small high table. Candles look festive but modern in red square votives. Hang red paper stars from trees or the ceiling. Arrange simple white flowers in low vases. When guests arrive greet each one with a box of gold sparklers.

My Dad is getting married on the 4th of July this year so I'll be celebrating that too. I'm not particularly patriotic but I do like to prepare real American's food for the 4th. BBQ and some red white and blue cake.

As stated by an ersatz Apu when Homer Simpson and company went to the beach for the 4th one year, "celebrate the birth of your nation by blowing up a small piece of it!"
