Hi guys! You may be thinking it’s only May, but if you’re anything like me… you love summer, outdoor parties, and The Red, White and Blue Holiday that is 4th of July.
Feel free to shop along as I walk you through some ideas for a festive 4th of July 2018 gathering. I’ll also include my favorite local activities for those readers in the following areas: Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Austin, and Malibu.
I like my day to consist of simple foods, block parties or backyard barbeques with usually just the closets of family and friends.
-A fun and healthy DIY: Fill a tiered organizer or cake plate with fresh watermelon slices.
-Take a trip to your local farmers market to stock up on yummy berries
-Then try a recipe like this one via “Hello Bee” for a beautiful and light fruit pizza.
I try to create a tablescape that ensures each guest has a personal space to call “their own” throughout the day. Simple, inviting, and comfortable is my motto for a long day like the 4th.
Try separating your table settings with a galvanized tray or wicker basket. This will give your guest that personal space, and eliminate any confusion as to whose silverware or cups are whose. A guest with a lost drink is something to avoid at all costs...
Continuing the ambiance never hurt anybody. So don’t forget our motto and take some simple steps to ad something comfortable or inviting wherever you see fit.
-Adding indoor/outdoor pillows to cozy up your patio or lounge furniture
-DIY banners made by the kids to remind guests it’s all about family
-Patio Lights to enjoy being outdoors after dark. It might be fun to offer hot cocoa, coffee, or tea. Better yet designate a self-serve bar.
-Have a basket full of throws on stand-by
