It’s easy to organize a part for the 4th! Here are some ideas you can incorporate to make your Holiday less stressful:
1. If you Barbeque; supply the main grilling items and have your guests bring the fillers – chips, dips, potato salad, soda pop, coleslaw, bread/buns, ice cream & cones, firecrackers, fruit, salads, baked beans – typical picnic fare!
2. If you prefer to prepare the food – have your guests bring paper plates and drinks! Let them bring the fireworks to the party!
3. You can use Red White & Blue napkins to keep in the 4th spirit; you can make a red white and blue punch (using ice cream, red pop and food coloring); to decorate, you can put small American Flags lining the driveway or your back yard. These items are probably in your grocery store this week – so when you shop, look for fun decorating ideas – including fun flowers for your tables!
4. If you want to have games for the kids, a simple penny or dime toss will keep them happy! Or set up a badminton net/volley ball net on the lawn. Or ask the parents of the kids to bring a game!
