The 4th of July is all about celebrating our country’s independence with family, friends, and food. I always love gathering around to have a good old-fashioned cookout. Festive drinks and a dip in the pool, followed by the big night time show. There is nothing that compares to the oohs and ahhs of the firework display, except maybe when your guests see the spread you have created. Stay safe and have a wonderful party with these 4th of July Entertaining Tips.

It’s easy to find things around the house that fit a red, white, and blue theme. Not everything has to be stars and stripes, the colors will pop on their own with a few special touches. Consider fresh flowers or candies in glass jars, a few bright napkins, or a red and white picnic table cloth you may already have.
