STAR-SPANGLE YOUR HOME: 4TH OF JULY DECOR & ENTERTAINING IDEAS

Planning a party this 4th of July? Whether you’re hosting a backyard  BBQ or a poolside soiree, we’ve gathered all the latest 4th of July decor ideas and tasty tips to help you light up your summer entertaining style with waves of red, white, and blue. 

Our Fave 4th of July Decor Ideas

We’re bursting with ideas for your 4th of July decorating inspiration. From your front door to your backyard, we’ve got you covered with bright and cheerful pops of color to add a taste of Americana to your summer style. 

Festive Front Door

Time for a seasonal swap of your front door decor! Brilliant bursts of red, white, and blue with shimmers of sparkle will greet your guests with a festive vibe, sure to get your party started with a bang. 

Adorn your front step with bold pops of patriotic color. Hang a star-spangled wreath on your door, prop up a charming Americana wooden porch sign or display galvanized metal patriotic wall decor to show you’re in the festive spirit of the season. 

Brilliant Backyard

Set up plenty of lounge zones and chat spaces around your backyard, perfect for lazing around in the summer sun and catching up with your guests. Make your open-air living room soft and stylish by draping your outdoor sofas and chairs with soft throws for afternoon napping and firework-patterned pillows for a festive pop. Add clusters of red, white, and blue lanterns to give your outdoor spaces soft illumination when the sun goes down. 

Red-Hot Tabletop

When it’s time to break out the tongs and fire up the grill, wave the stars and stripes theme throughout your tabletop. Roll out a red, white, and blue runner, then layer on coordinating napkins, placemats, and flag decor to complement your crisp, white dinnerware. Center a pretty little pot of fragrant herbs to finish your look. 

Easy 4th of July Entertaining Tips 

You don’t have to break a sweat serving a backyard full of guests this 4th of July. These simple entertaining tips will keep everyone happy all holiday long. 

Bright Beverages

Set up a serve-yourself beverage station -- but place it away from the food. This will give your guests an opportunity to mingle while they mix their own drinks. Fill a gigantic ice bucket with ice, frosty drinks, bottles, and mixers, and let everyone create their own concoctions. 

No ice bucket? Fill up a large planter with ice, and voila! To keep your ice from dripping as it melts, fill red, white, and blue balloons with water, freeze, then use them to keep your drinks chilled. 

For a big batch beverage solution, whip up a pitcher of sparkling red, white, and blue sangrias filled with fresh fruit -- perfect for summer sippin’. 

Super Easy Snacks

Set up a spread of flag-themed sweet and savory snacks you can make ahead of time, and everyone will love. No need to turn on the oven, these nibbles will keep your kitchen cool and your friends and family full. 

Festive Fruit Skewers

Thread strawberries, bananas, and blueberries on wooden skewers for a fresh and fruity pick-me-up. 

Red, White & Blue Caprese Salad

Layer slices of juicy tomato and mozzarella, then garnish with fresh blueberries, ribbons of basil, and balsamic reduction. 

Patriotic Popcorn 

Toss salted popcorn with dried cranberries, dried blueberries, nuts, and red, white, and blue chocolate-covered candies. 

S’mores Charcuterie

Fill a platter with graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate bars, and red, white, and blue candies, cookies, fruits, and spreads. 

Fun, Family Games

Set the stage for a day of fun for all ages with kid-and-adult-friendly games. 

Tic-Tac-Toe Lawn Game

Create a lawn-sized game of tic-tac-toe. Just spray paint large wooden Xs and Os red and blue and use white rope to create your grid.  

Sack Races

Good old-fashioned fun that will keep the little ones entertained. Burlap bags are all you need, spray painted with red, white, and blue stripes and stars for the occasion, of course. 

4th of July Bingo

Everyone loves bingo! And when you bring out your adorable 4th of July-themed bingo cards, kids and grown-ups of all ages will want to play! 

Sparkling Favors

After the fireworks are over, send your guests off with something to remember the occasion.  For a firecracker of an idea, tie a bundle of sparklers with red, white, and blue ribbon, and add a tag with each guest’s name. For a flameless option, make your own party crackers by filling short cardboard tubes with candies and confetti, wrapping them up with crepe paper, and tying them with ribbon.
