Get Your Grub on with Some Patriotic Flair This 4th of July

We’re officially less than a week away from the Fourth of July! Time to start planning and prepping for your holiday BBQ. We’ve rounded up some fun and festive treats to really embrace the patriotic spirit of the holiday and leave your guests with a smile across their faces. Bring on the stars, stripes, red, white, and blue!

We love the idea of having tri-colored potatoes as a side dish, too! If you’re not a BBQ person, try these fun star shaped pizzas instead.

Desserts

Dessert… our favorite! There are so many things you can do for a patriotic dessert. You can pretty much dip anything in frosting and add some sprinkles to make it match the theme.

Give a healthy option with a fun fruit platter and a lighter option with some multi-colored rice krispies.

Drinks

Every party needs a signature drink! When it comes to the fourth, you have plenty of options for festive drinks. Whether you opt for a sparkling sangria or some firecracker jello shots, make sure you have a non-alcoholic option too. Even if it’s something as simple as
