15 Ideas to Throw the Ultimate Fourth of July Bash

Fourth of July is just right around the corner. We are having our annual Fourth of July party next weekend because our town has its annual fireworks display early. I’ve started to research some fun ideas to make our party exciting this year and came across so many unique displays, foods and products. Below is just some of the projects you can create to wow your guests at your Fourth of July picnic this year.


Build Your Own Hot Dog Table
This display looks like it took a long time to create, but it really will not. You already have to put out all the condiments anyway, so why not place them out in a beautiful display? You can use containers you already have or opt to buy some in red, white and blue. And there are super cute Patriotic Chalkboard Tent Signs that you can buy to label everything on your table. Save the signs and use them again next year. Whatever table display you decide to use, make sure there are plenty of “Old Glories” throughout your decor.

Build Your Own S’mores Bar

If you have a fire pit in your yard creating a s’mores bar is a no-brainier. You can buy White or Blue Plastic Tubs at Dollar Tree and use the red, white and blue disposable dishware you purchased to create the Hot Dog Table. This table will be a hit once the sun goes down and you start up your fire.

Build Your Own Desserts Table
The only rule for this desserts table is that all the desserts need to be red, white and blue. See some of the dessert recipes I shared below under the food section or use the ideas on the pictured table.

Build Your Own Fun & Games Station

This one can be for adults and children. In most states you can purchase sparklers and snappers. For the younger kids have a jar filled with mini containers of bubbles. Buy red, white and blue ones to keep with the theme. You can purchase these online or at your local party store.

Painted Lawn Stars
These are fun to make with the kids before your party. The best way to paint the stars is to use a patriotic chalk spray paint kit. It is non-toxic and will not ruin your lawn. It will wash away after it rains.

Colorful Duck Tape Banner
This one is easy to make and it will withstand the outdoor elements. All you need is some red & white twine, colorful duck tape and scissors. I even found duck tape that has American flags on it. See the photos below for how to put together this easy to make decoration.

Mini Fruit Patriotic Pies
These mini pies are really easy to make. Use fresh fruit (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, etc). If you want to really make them individualized, you can buy mini pie tins to cook them in. Otherwise use a cupcake tin.
