4th of July Party Foods

Updated on June 24, 2016

Let's Throw An America Party!

Keys to really throw your party over the top starts with the plates, napkins, and silverware.

  • Plates- Try and find American Flag plates, which should be easy if it's close to July, or just plain red, white, or blue solid colored plates.
  • Napkins- I would go easy on napkins and get a solid color of red, white or blue. Another idea is to get a small pack of each so you can have a little bit of everything.
  • Silverware- When buying plastic silverware, the most common color is clear or white. I would try to get colors that are closest to your napkins and plates. You want every color to be spot on. If you have white napkins, make sure you aren't getting a cream color of something else.
  • Tablecloth- For a tablecloth I wouldn't do a design, but instead I would do white. I will be the other stuff more vibrant, and look more clean.

All of the colors need to correspond with each other. Make sure to not get too much of one color and not enough of another. The colors need to be balanced to make the set-up look the best. I would suggest buying all of the supplies at one spot, so you can make sure that the colors match, and they are more likely to if they are all at the same store. I would go to party city to buy the table stuff. They have a huge variety, cheap prices, and creative ideas.


When at a party with kids, you want to make sure the kids have a cool drink like the adults will. Kids will love this drink! It's red, white and blue. You can use any kid-friendly drinks that are red, white, and blue, but make sure that they will taste good together. The kicker is that all three need different sugar contents per ounce. They larger the sugar contrast, the better the drink will lay. If you don't know what will work I tried it with cranberry juice (red), a kid-friendly pina colada drink (white), and a blue raspberry drink (blue). It worked great! So, here's how to do it:

  • Start by filling the glass about 1/4-1/3 of the way full with they one that has the highest sugar content per serving(red, if using my recipe)
  • Fill the cup FULL with ice to where no more will fit. MAKE SURE THIS IS DONE AFTER POURING IN RED DRINK.
  • Then, pour the drink with the next highest sugar content each serving(white, in my case) VERY SLOWLY( if not it wont sit very well). The ice is used as a buffer. Make sure to pour in the ice in small amount very SLOWLY.
  • Repeat SLOWLY with the last layer(blue, if using my recipe). Do not rush! Take your time so it turns out the best way possible.
  • To make creative take the ends of twizzler candy and snip them off so they can be used as a straw.
  • You can also tie the Twizzler PULL n' PEEL strips around the special straw.
