Celebrating the Fourth of July

Nothing says summer like 4th of July.. and nothing says fourth of July like a barbecue. 4th of July parties are my favorite. I love the decorations, and especially the food! There are plenty of ways to add red white and blue to your bbq. If you don’t have a lot of time picking one or two of the following ideas will give your party the perfect Americana feel.

What you will need:

  • 3 Mason Jars
  • Red, White and Blue Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Star Stencil
  • Rope
  • Red, white and blue plastic silverware

These red white and blue mason jars are just the cutest. You can use them as decor inside your home or use them for your bbq by storing your plastic utensils. You can reuse them too! Store them away until next year. I love a good project that lets me use what I made over and over.

Decorating your food table is super fun! Hots dogs and burgers are the staple of any summer bbq. Set up a table just for them and all the fixin’s ! It is bound to be a hit. The below image is a perfect example. Set your table up with room for your tray of hot dogs and hamburgers. Line up all your fixin’s around them. Don’t forget to label them. If you have room this is the perfect spot to put your mason jar silverware holders. If not place them and your plates on a different table near by.
