Food

Cake pops are always a great idea because they’re small portions and an easy (and yummy) grab and go treat.

Another simple way to make your food more patriotic is to add red and blue fruits to side dishes. Here’s a great way to incorporate all three colors in one delicious snack! Who wouldn’t love these chocolate covered star spangled berries?

Have fun creating your own patriotic cocktails or print custom festive “Patriot Beer” bottle labels!

 

Ceremony

For those looking to add more of the July 4th sparkle and cheer in your wedding you may want your bridal party to take part in the red, white and blue. Red shoes and blue dresses, along with blue suspenders and red boutonnieres will really help add to the patriotic theme. Carrying a bouquet full of red and blue flowers against a white wedding dress is another great way to really make the 4th of July spirit pop.

Pay tribute to the 4th with floral arrangements or find red, white and blue candles to use as centerpieces. You could even fill in candleholders with colored sand to make each table scream happy 4th.
