Celebrate July 4th with fun and festive party ideas for every type of crowd, whether you’re having an adult gathering, a neighborhood bash, or a picnic with people of all ages.


1. Have a Multi-Age Field Day

Whether you have your friends, family, or a gaggle of neighbors over, enjoy a day full of backyard fun and outdoor games. Tailor it to the age of your guests – potato sack races and relays won’t work for all groups. Think lawn bowling, ring toss, or ladderball.

2. Host a Red, White, and Blue Cocktail Party

Color it up with red, white, and blue food and snacks. Think strawberry and blueberry desserts; spiked watermelon punch; and boozy red, white, and blue ice pops.


3. Host a Fourth of July Themed Backyard BBQ

Is there anything more American than a good old backyard BBQ? Go traditional with burgers and dogs, but play up the July 4th theme with festive red, white, and blue decorations. If it’s really muggy where you are, consider investing in an outdoor misting device- your guests will thank you.

4. Make it a Red, White, and Blue Costume Party

Invite people over for a picnic, BBQ, or dinner, and ask everyone to come in either red, white, blue, or some combination of those colors. This is ideal for family gatherings if you haven’t seen each other for awhile, as it also makes for gorgeous color-coordinated family portraits. Try some of these patriotic accessories and clothes.


5. Host a Safe Fireworks Party

If you don’t want to brave the crowds and traffic to see fireworks on Independence Day, then have some safe sparkler fun in your yard or at your local park. Younger ones can have fun with snappers and glow in the dark toys.
