I absolutely love the 4th of July. It’s so much fun celebrating our country’s independence while we spend quality time with our loved ones and eat some really yummy food. In my opinion, no Fourth of July is complete without a BBQ. You may actually be throwing one yourself for your friends and family this year. If so, you’re going to need all the greatest ideas for food and decor to make sure your BBQ is the most patriotic that it can be. There are so many fun things you can do with food and decorations to really spice up your get together so that it looks beautiful and feels festive. Check out these 10 ideas that’ll have everyone celebrating at your Fourth of July BBQ.

1. Star Watermelon

Watermelon is one of the best summer fruits, so it makes sense to include it in a Fourth of July party. Instead of cutting it up into the usual cubes or triangles, get your cookie cutters out and cut out some adorable heart shaped pieces for everyone to enjoy. This looks so much cuter than the cubes and goes perfectly with the Fourth of July theme.

At Home In Love is full of inspiring interiors, stylish trends, and other creative ideas.

2. Ice Cream Sandwiches

Let’s be honest, when it comes to throwing a BBQ or any kind of party for that matter, things can get pretty stressful and overwhelming. I’m all about simplicity when it comes to having a get together. The easier it is on me, the less stressed out I’ll be. That’s why these ice cream sandwiches are perfect for your Fourth of July BBQ dessert. You don’t have to make anything, in fact, all you have to do is roll the ice cream sides in some cute, festive sprinkles, and you’ve got yourself a pretty and patriotic dessert.

You’ll find other recipes, as well as craft and DIY tutorials over at Pink Polka Dot Creations.

3. American Flag Utensil Holders

I am completely in love with these American flag mason jars that are used here to hold utensils. They’re just so adorable and if I ended up making these myself I would be tempted to keep these out in my house all the time, not just during patriotic holidays. These would make such a cute addition on your food table and would really brighten up the whole look of your party.

There are numerous DIY and craft tutorials over at It All Started With Paint.
