July 4 is only weeks away, and that means it’s time to plan the decorations, menu, and activities you’ll host for your guests. C&B is chock full of coastal July 4 and BBQ tips that will keep your event simple (so you can enjoy it too!), but memorable enough that guests will look forward to next year’s event.
Coastal July 4 and BBQ Tips
The best parties blend simplicity with panache. To keep things easier on your end, we recommend hosting a potluck style event. You can take on the main course with tasty items, like BBQ chicken, ribs, and burgers or hot dogs for the kids. Then, jetmag.com recommends letting your guests help out by bringing their favorite BBQ sides. This makes for easy clean up, too!
Our Chelsea Oval Table with Brooke Folding Chairs will be a good addition to your outdoor collection. The pieces can be moved around as needed and work well both with a red-white-and-blue-themed Whale with Red Star runner or without. You can dress up the table a bit using a fun set of flatware. Kids and adults alike will appreciate your Seashells Hostess Set or the playful Fishstix Flatware.
Plan a menu that suits all ages. Visit allyou.com for great July 4 recipes, like Salmon Burgers and Herb Roasted Cherry Tomatoes. Stock your cooler with sodas, beer, and your favorite white wines, which can be served al fresco with our On Beach Time Wine Lover’s Collection.
