Bake an Apple Pie
What’s more American than eating a deliciously sweet baked apple pie? If you’re used to heading to your local grocery store to get a yummy pre-made pie, find a good recipe and pick up the ingredients, instead. Try your hand at baking your very own homemade apple pie and experience the joys of baking this American favorite! Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream to go with it!
Stock Up on BBQ Goodies
If you’re hosting a Fourth of July get together, start stocking up on all the supplies you’ll need for your barbecue, including all the yummy condiments, pre-made side dishes like chips, dips, and baked beans. No Fourth of July party is complete without a selection of hot dogs, brats, and burgers, so don’t forget these barbecue staples.
Pick Up Patriotic Party Favors
Whether you’ll be hosting a Fourth of July barbecue, or you’ll be attending one at a friend’s or family member’s home, you can never go wrong with having too many party favors. Stock up on all things red, white, and blue, including plates, cups, decorative napkins, and don’t forget the noisemakers! You can even pick up some Fourth of July-themed streamers, hats, and other goodies to really liven up the party. Getting an early jump on this will save you the headache of competing against other folks at the store on the day of the celebration.
Make a Party Playlist
Music is a must for any party or barbecue, but especially for a Fourth of July party! Hop on iTunes, Spotify, or take it old school and burn a CD to create a playlist with all the classics. There’s Tom Petty’s American Girl, anything by John Cougar Mellencamp, James Brown’s Living in America, and California Girls by The Beach Boys. These are just a few classics to help you get your playlist going, but there are so many great songs to choose from. Just mix it up so you have a good blend of music genres to tickle everyone’s fancy.
Start Looking for Patriotic Attire
It’s always good to get ahead of the game when finding the best patriotic attire for your barbecue. Head to a few of your favorite shopping spots so you can put together a sweet American-themed outfit. If you want to dazzle everyone at the barbecue, shop Ritzy Couture’s USA Collection where you will find everything from American flag pins to American flag earrings adorned with sparkling red, white, and blue rhinestones and enamels. Along with the fireworks, your patriotic jewelry will awe all your friends and loved ones.
These are just a few ways to start celebrating the Fourth of July early. Be sure to tune in next time to learn even more ways to get a jump on celebrating this extra special day. Until then, thanks for reading!
