From star-spangled lanterns to patriotic wreath centerpieces, these thoughtful décor items will help your guests get into the celebratory spirit.
A Booming Backyard
“And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air -” Sorry, where are we? With dinner out of the way, it’s time to shuffle your company to the patio for some fresh evening air. A glass of wine for the grown-ups, some light-up sparklers for the kids. These spirited selections will help you throw a party to remember.
Liberate Your Leftovers
As the party winds down, it’s time to start thinking about leftovers. What to do with all that extra potato salad and ranch dip? Why not pack up to-go containers for your guests to take home? Toss the tasties into a swag bag and complement them with candies, fireworks or whatever your heart desires. The next day, guests will remember your hospitality.
