Hanging these Fourth of July Burlap Party Banners around your backyard will definitely perk up your party.

 

Remember to follow your chosen color scheme (in this case red, white, and blue) but take care not to overwhelm your guests. Keep everything subtle, casual, and tidy like these mason jars where you can place your utensils, napkins, and straws.

 

Add a patriotic flair to your tablescape with flag-inspired customized plates! Placed on a white table and accompanied with red napkins and utensils, these plates are amazing party conversation-starters.

Firing Up the Grill

 

 

Make sure that you put your grill in a section of your lawn or backyard that has enough space and is far from flammable things such as trees, plants, and the like. Also, take out everything you need for grilling and place them next to your grill to save time and energy from going from one place to another.

Getting Ready for the Fireworks!

Place plenty of seats on your backyard or lawn to prepare for the fireworks show. You can also light up a bunch of sparklers to make the evening more entertaining!

Enjoy a simple and casual Fourth of July party with these few ideas. How about you? Do you have any suggestions on how to make this occasion even more special?
