Whether you are living it up at the lake with your besties, having a romantic beach picnic, or swinging by the local watering hole, one thing is for sure: there will be red, white, and booze involved. If you're hitting up the right parties, there will be wine, beer, and all your classic cocktails being served. In order for your party to stand out, there are a few key ingredients you can't skimp on: fireworks, yummy treats, good music, decor, and a refreshing cocktail signature to your party.
Fireworks: Unless you're a professional, you should not be handling the big boys. Still use with caution, but here are a few safe and fun fireworks:
Apps: If you're preparing food for a lot of people, keep it easy and simple. You can never go wrong with hamburgers, hotdogs, and a fresh crisp salad. However, appetizers are what set a precedent for the meal ahead, so be sure not to disappoint!
Decor: Keep things easy, light, and festive. Oversized balloons filled with metallic confetti are a must-have. Make drinking extra cute with a disco glitter ball sipper cup. A party pack of photo props for all your selfies is mandatory. Don't forget to throw in some streamers, bubbles, sparkles, and confetti (basically anything to add a little shine)!
DRANKSS: Be sure to stock up on beer, wine, vodka, and tequila. Always have your classic mixers on hand: club soda, cranberry juice, tonic, OJ, and your favorite sodas. Ask everyone to bring their favorite spirit (BYOB) to keep the open bar booze cost to a minimum. The signature cocktail can be as easy or detailed as you would like. We prefer to appear fancy but keep things simple (think: little effort, big impression). Here is our pick for the perfect July 4th cocktail that everyone will love. Thanks Jennifer Meyering Blog for the yumminess!
