Create a celebration that's packed with fun, food, and lots of patriotism this 4th of July for your family and friends to enjoy. From traditional American games to modern antics, here are some unique ideas that will help you throw a party that's sure to be a hit.


Let's get started:


Festive Decorations 

To set the patriotic mood, you'll need to decorate your space in red, white and blue. You can use flags, bunting, streamers, and balloons, anything that celebrates the United States of America. Additionally, patriotic-themed paper plates, napkins, and cups can add to the festive mood.


Summer Drinks 

The perfect 4th of July party needs to have delicious drinks to enjoy. Consider serving lemonade, beer and fruity cocktails, they're festive and thirst-quenching. Don't forget to serve your drinks in outdoor friendly tumblers like our SUNNYLiFE styles.


Party Games & Activities

A bit of friendly competition and friendly fun feels like the right thing for a 4th of July celebration. From games like American flag cornhole, backgammon, and table tennis to badminton and poker. For the adults, beer pong could be a fun addition and if there are young children involved, a piñata filled with candy and toys can really spark some happy feelings.


Fireworks & Sparklers

No July 4th weekend is complete without fireworks or at the very least sparklers. They're festive, bright and fun, your guests will love the popping addition to an evening of celebrations. However, be sure to check your local laws and ordinances to determine if you can legally set off fireworks. If not, plan to attend a nearby public fireworks display or burn sparklers.


Pool Floats

If you have a pool, consider adding some fun pool floats for your guests to relax and enjoy on. If you're after something fun and inviting opt for a giant unicorn or flamingo ride-on float or if you are after something a little more paired back, a hammock or pool tube would be ideal.



Music sets the mood and tone for any party. Create a playlist filled with patriotic tunes, pop hits, and classic rock to keep everyone entertained. Be sure to add some tracks from Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift, Elvis Presley, Beyoncé and Foo Fighters, they always get the vibes high.


DIY Photo Booth

Create a patriotic-themed photo booth with props like Uncle Sam hats, American flags, and red, white, and blue streamers. Set up a camera with a timer on a tripod and capture memories of the day.


Happy 4th of July summer lovers, now enjoy the celebrations.
