Planning to celebrate in style this Fourth of July? Today I’m sharing some fun red, white, and blue party ideas — from recipes to cool DIY decor inspiration — so you’ll be all set to light your sparklers, fire up the BBQ, and enjoy some quality time with family and friends!

Fourth of July Party Ideas!

These super cute patriotic pretzel bites would be fun to make with the kids and I promise they’ll disappear at your festive shindig! You could get super creative and try different candies and icing if you’d like — make it your own and enjoy!

Light up the night with these lovely Mason jar lanterns! They’ll look amazing during the day and when the sun goes down you can add candles (I prefer the flameless battery-powered ones around kiddos!) for a gorgeous glow. These would be perfect on your mantle as well.

This might be the world’s cutest fruit salad, right? Whip out a star-shaped cookie cutter and chop up your watermelon, then add blueberries for a healthy stars and stripes snack!

Have you ever thought about decorating your lawn for the Fourth of July? You can use water-based construction locate paint to add something special to your outdoor decor this year!

Some red and blueberries make for a gorgeous and refreshing infused beverage! We love how this simple drink looks in a Mason jar with a cute paper straw.

Treat everyone to a tasty dessert this Fourth of July by making what will soon be your signature red, white, and blue trifle. Yum!
