Fourth of July BBQ Party Ideas: Recipes

For dessert, think outside of the backyard because s’mores aren’t just for camping anymore. Feast your taste buds on s’mores cupcakes, fondue and a no bake cheesecake, perfect for staying cool while whipping up a little something in the kitchen.

After all that food, you’re going to need a place to relax and really maximize comfort. Let the warmth of the summer day lull you into a mid-fiesta siesta or a group chat on this DIY hammock couch made from old wooden pallets.

While you are takin’ it easy, the kids are entertaining themselves with the Fourth of July games you set up just for them — and the grown up kids. Cool off with squirt gun races!

Keep them totally engaged with a cheap and no effort adventure into nature…

Finally, let their creative freedom ring with an Independence Day themed face painting station. Make sure to include plastic cups of water, paper towels, paper plates, a table, chair and mirror.

Then, when the sun and temperatures start to drop a bit, it’s time to illuminate your backyard or front yard  with some fire! Go with colored tiki flames or Americana-style DIY Patriotic Jar Lanterns.
