The Fourth of July is right around the corner!

The Fourth of July is right around the corner!

America’s favorite red, white, and blue holiday is right around the corner! You may have already procured the sparklers and the festive decor, but what other steps are you taking to ensure that your party is going to be a hit? If you’re searching for inspiration, check out our list of Independence Day party necessities!

Minimalist Invitations

Your festive decorations don’t have to be over the top. Stick to the Independence Day basics. Consider an elegantly hand-lettered invitation decorated with simple stripes and stars to attract your guests to the big event. You can save money if you choose to make them yourself!

Red, White, & Blue

Streamers and banners are all well and good, but take advantage of America’s bold color scheme in a unique way. Cover each table with a crisp, white tablecloth, provide blue napkins and cutlery, and finish off the look with a centerpiece of red flowers.

Seasonal Cocktails

Whether you’re offering a few different fruit juices or a small menu of sweet spirits, make sure that they’re refreshing enough for the hot summer day. Your guests will appreciate cold beverages that aren’t too sweet or too dense. Consider adding food coloring to each drink for a festive look!

Local Treats

What better way to celebrate Independence Day than to support a local business? Get all of your tasty, holiday treats from a Wockenfuss location nearest you! Consider orchestrating a dessert table with the candies, chocolates, and treats you decide to purchase.

Delicious Hors d’Oeuvres

Whether you make them yourself or you decide to cater your party, ensure that your guests have delicious snacks to enjoy. Mini crab cakes, shrimp skewers, and bacon wrapped scallops make the perfect additions to your Maryland party!
