Getting Festive With It If you're searching for a fun party food to bring as a Fourth of July gift, be a great guest and show up with something delicious. Here are some ideas on what you can bring that will look festive and be gobbled up by happy party goers. Think fresh and sun-friendly. Since Fourth of July parties usually end up outside under the hot July sun, make sure your dish is not based in mayo or any other ingredient that could spoil easily. You want to bring something that will be fresh and won't wilt or melt before it's served. Show up with your dish in a pretty bowl with ice under it if it's perishable. At least that way you can stretch the life of it on the table. Red, White & Blue Fruit Salad Why not consider bringing a red, white, and blue fruit Read more

Stars and Stripes.  The centerpiece of any July 4th party is the flag, and you can proudly display your stars and stripes in other ways. You can find stars and stripes pennants, decorations, candle holders, window clings, plastic tablecloths, paper plates, and balloons. If you don’t want to buy them, make your own. Buy white balloons and draw (or delegate this to your children) blue and red stars. Yes, it’s a bit backwards, but your color theme is right Read more
