Nothing tastes quite as good as homemade ice cream; it's the perfect complement to your outdoor grilled foods.
If making ice cream from scratch isn't your bag, set up an ice cream bar. Get a large metal tub and fill it with ice. Place a few small cartons of ice cream in the tub. Small cartons work best because they will be used quickly. Store extras in the freezer and replenish when necessary.
Provide themed party supplies, ceramic mugs, and spoons and an ice cream scoop of course. Now comes the fun part: In either bowls or glass jars, supply
sprinkles, crushed oreo cookies, nuts, m and m's or whatever else you can think of for a fantastic ice cream bar. Be sure to
provide spoons or a scooper. Everyone
will enjoy how pretty the ice cream fixing look. And, who doesn't love ice cream with extra sprinkles?!
Have guests come as a President, Congressmen or Women, President's wife, General or other US historical figure. Full attire isn't necessary, just a token of the President will do, such as a button, a sticker, a hat...whatever.
What's interesting about the party is who guests choose to be; it's a great conversation starter and it brings a sense of history (and humor) to your Fourth of July party ideas.If you're looking for traditional Fourth of July party ideas, this party theme couldn't be any easier. Simply let guests know your theme. Everyone dresses in the colors of independence.
Dress you home for the celebration too! Red and white checked table clothes, a flag (of course), streams, sparklers, the works!
If your Fourth of July plans include a block party, why not get all the neighbors in on the action by having a most patriotic home decorating contest. A friendly competition of front porch Fourth of July decorations is a sure way to get everyone in the spirit of fun.
