The Fourth of July is here! Crazy to think this summer is now in full swing and the BBQs, pool days, and beach trips are here for the time being. If you are like most of us, you will likely be attending a gathering of sorts over the holiday weekend to celebrate the USA’s birthday. That being said, do you know what you plan to bring? If not, don’t despair! We have found some great holiday-inspired treat ideas to help you create the perfect July 4th gift. Prepare to make all of the guests very, very jealous!
Fourth of July – Red, White, Blue, and FOOD
So let’s first determine if you plan on creating a dish aimed towards app, dinner, or dessert. If you are concerned about refrigeration, maybe a dish that can withstand a little heat is the proper direction to take. Anything with dairy or eggs will need to be kept cold in order to preserve its taste and so it does not go bad in the sun before guests get to try it!
If you’re looking for a fun recipe to make with your kids, consider Red, White, and Blue Bark! We’ve been seeing more and more posts on this fun food project that is no-bake and super easy to make.
Another great source for food ideas that fit the Patriotic theme is Foodie’s 50 Red, White and Blue Recipes. Here, we found some delicious options that are perfect for the the Fourth of July. Not trying to over-calorie this holiday? Are you looking for something light and refreshing? This Watermelon, Blueberry Feta salad looks SO good. You can get the recipe here.
When in doubt remember, you can be super Americana with a good burger! Find some mini flags to adorn those buns and fire up the grill. Let your table setting do the red, white, and blue vibe with plates, napkins, cutlery, or a flower arrangement. The food does the rest! Happy Fourth of July!
