4th of July Formal Party Theme

Party in the USA.

About the Theme

Celebrate all things patriotic with a red, white and blue color scheme, star decorations, a bonfire, country music and domestic brews. Elevate the sophistication level with elegent floral arrangements, freshly crafted signature cocktails and impressive stemware. And of course, don't forget to tell guests to dress to impress—this isn't your typical backyard cookout.

Vodka Lemonade

Celebrating during warm summer months? You’ll need more than beer to fight the heat. Designate this frozen treat as the signature sip. (Pro tip: Leave out the vodka, grenadine and curaçao for a nonalcoholic option.)

This one is obvious, but must be said. Go all out with red, white and blue decorations ranging from tissue paper pom-poms to pinwheels.
