Plan the Best Patriotic Party in Orange, CT
As Americans, we love to barbecue regardless of whether it’s a holiday or not, so when a holiday comes around we really like to go big or go home. It’s time to have a barbecue for the biggest American holiday—the 4th of July. If you want to host a 4th of July party to show your patriotic spirits, then we have some tips to help you plan the best patriotic party in Orange, CT.
- Do all of your baking the day before your party or picnic so that on the day of the party, your pie crusts will be baked, your salads will be chilled in the fridge and you’ll only need to set foot in your kitchen is to refill the sangria.
- Whenever I have a party, one of two things happen: I forget to purchase ice at all and make a frantic call to one of my friends, asking them to pick some up on the way over OR I buy a giant bag of it and someone leaves it sitting out so it melts, leaving our drinks warm and our white wine room temperature.
- Instead of buying tacky July 4th decorations that you’ll only use once, adorn your table with items you’ll actually use, like these festive stripey straws from Jack & Lulu. Not only will they add a retro vibe to your table, but they’ll facilitate efficient cocktail consumption. If you’re serving red sangria or a bright cocktail, serve it in a Mason Jar Drink Dispenser to celebrate traditional American style. If your theme is red, white and blue, pick up a few sets of festive melamine plates from Pottery Barn, which you’ll be able to use again when you’re not saluting the flag.
These tips can help you plan a fun, safe 4th of July party without stress or worry. What menu items are a must-have for your 4th of July party? Tell us in a comment.
