In his mind there is zero expectation. No one has to brine, bast and roast a Turkey. No one has to buy presents. No one has to come up with a creative costume idea. It’s just pure fun.
In honor of my T-love here are our July 4th Party Ideas:
Ribs Off The Grill. This recipe from The New York Times is great. I’m going to be totally honest, to keep things super simple I order our July 4th ribs from my favorite rib joint in Naples Florida, Michelbobs. I grew up going here with my grandparents and swear by their tulip-fed pigs.
Ice cream sandwiches. One year I made own. They were pretty delicious but kinda a pain to make and keep cold. This year I’m doing store-bought ice cream sandwiches and dipping in red/white/blue sprinkles to make festive and easy.
If ever there is a day for jello shots it’s this holiday. I love these gorgeous Berry Creations.
On the 4th of July you need a great Beach/Pool Playlist you can listen to all day. This holiday can be a marathon. I started one for you here.
I’m going to attempt to make these Fire-Cracker Party Favors. Our kiddos love to get to stay up late and watch the fireworks. These could be a great way to pass the time until it gets dark enough to set them off.
Throw in some American flags and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable 4th of July. Enjoy!
Take the FREE and start planning a wedding that feels uniquely you.
The truth is I hated planning my own wedding. I felt like I was going it alone and was surprised by how hard it was to find partners who embraced my vision. Thankfully, the guy was worth it and that experience is what led me to become a wedding planner. After a decade of planning luxury weddings I am bringing my process to you.
