If you’re searching for something to do on July 4th, look no further because we’ve got you covered. While there are many parades and firework displays that you can view both in person and online, there are more than enough possibilities if you’re looking for food-focused ideas that let freedom ring. And the majority of them can be completed at home!

Even when you’ve already planned your activities, do you still need to put together a delectable menu? You may make the best Fourth of July feast ever with the help of these recipes.

Plan a picnic with a theme

If you haven’t had a picnic yet, put it at the top of your list of things to do on July 4th. Uncertain of the foods to bring for your picnic? We’ve got you covered with these portable recipes, so don’t worry. We have plenty of recipe ideas for you, whether you’re looking for a traditional spread (like potato salad or a club sandwich) or something more inventive (like strawberry balsamic pasta salad or sesame noodles).

Do a backyard dance party with a patriotic theme.

Are you and some of your close pals prepared to start the summer? The Fourth of July is the ideal occasion! Prepare your garden with some red, white, and blue decorations, request that your guests wear the same colors, and get ready to party. You may even go one step farther and limit yourself to eating just dishes that are red, white, and blue, such as this lemon-berry firecracker cake and star-shaped s’mores.

Serve beverages in red, white, or blue.

Make the day memorable by just offering up Fourth of July-themed beverages, whether you’re spending time with family or hosting a party with friends. There is a delectable drink for everyone, including gigantic watermelon-o shots, strawberry frosé, and blueberry lemonade margaritas.

Hold a baking competition

Setting up a baking competition is a fun and imaginative way to commemorate Valentine’s Day this year, whether you decide to do so in person or virtually. Create your best red, white, or blue dessert and let everyone demonstrate their baking prowess (we’re adoring these raspberry treats). Let the taste test be taken into consideration when choosing the winner if the contest is being held in person. 34 next-level Fourth of July cakes are here for your viewing pleasure.

view themed films

Instead of burning in the heat this year, would you prefer to spend the day indoors? Prepare your preferred batch of popcorn (like this Cookie Lovers Popcorn), acquire a tasty beverage (ahem, ideas above! ), and get ready to binge the greatest patriotic films ever made.

Make a dessert table for the Fourth of July.

Treat your guests to an unforgettable dessert presentation to up the ante at your patriotic gathering. Your dessert table will be the sole topic of conversation until the celebration the following year, with inventive s’mores, bonfire strawberries, and gorgeous, delectable cupcakes.

Set the mood with the appropriate music.

The perfect music is essential for every holiday party, and the Fourth of July is no exception. Just be sure to let freedom ring when you push play, whether you create the playlist of songs yourself or make it a communal one so that everyone can participate in.
