You'll never go wrong with a traditional backyard party to commemorate this very special American holiday! So, do your yearly, patriotic obligation, and either attend or throw an epic summer cookout with these classic cookout must-haves. 

Grilled and Healthy Selection

From grilled burgers to Chicago dogs, these are always part of the All-American tradition every 4th of July. Well, why not? These delectable essentials never fail to rev up the annual summer celebration. Also, don’t forget other cookout classics such as BBQ grilled chicken, slow-cooked teriyaki ribs, barbecued shrimps and grilled pizza. There are also vegan options like the Beyond Meat burger - which is perfect for those cutting meat from their diets! If you want to tone down the meaty options, it’s time to take the unique vegetable flavors into the grill. Serve some veggie skewers, cheesy corn-on-the-hob, creamy potato salad, and campfire baked beans to complete the summer party staples.

Sweet Treats

Add some sweet treats to your table, including colorful berry pies, American flag donuts, 4th of July frosted cake, no-bake berry cheesecakes and strawberry-dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. All these vibrant and delectable desserts would be the perfect patriotic finish.

Thirst-quenching Drinks

Beers may be a cult favorite every 4th of July, but it’s time to level up the fun and tang with some flavorful cocktails. Whether you opt for fruit-infused drinks or your favorite lemonade, you’ll need a big, reliable dispenser to keep the guests refreshed. If you want, you can also try other cocktails like pudding shots, fruity pops, margarita coolers or frozen sangria. Whatever you want, just choose your own poison but don’t forget to add a hint of the blue, white and red colors in your drinks!

Red, White and Blue Accessories

Patriotic Dinnerware

And when we say patriotic dinnerware, you can depend on your usual acrylic or stainless set to save money. Just make sure you add a hint of patriotism to it. Ditch the typical disposable plastic flatware and go for something resourceful. Use washi tape to complement with the American theme.

Paper Lanterns

For sure, fireworks will light up the sky during the festive celebration. But it would be more fascinating if you have your own customized lanterns to add brightness on this rather special event. Transform your dull LED bulbs into colorful paper lanterns that are easy-to-make and install. And, you can even use these accessories year round as your outdoor chandeliers!
