Independence Day is all about friends, family, all-American food and of course... Fireworks! The best way to combine these things is a traditional 4th of July barbecue.
A 4th of July celebration is incomplete without hot dogs, hamburgers, watermelon, baked beans, corn on the cob, and a patriotic desert like apple pie or a cake decorated like the American Flag with blueberries and raspberries.
American flags are a must. Other fun decorations include 4th of July wreathes, patriotic balloons, napkins, and flowers. You really can't go wrong with anything red, white, and blue!
When it gets dark on the 4th, the party is just getting started. Fireworks are the key to a successful Independence Day celebration.
Here are the 4th of July firework essentials:
Sky Patriot - Stand up and salute as this cake carpets the sky. Red, white, and blue mines lead up to booming breaks of red, white, and blue.
American Glory - Booming gold breaks of brocade rain down and melt into red, white, and blue tips.
America Forever - Our longest-lasting fountain! Get 220 seconds worth of color pearls, crackling and more. Lasts over 3.5 minutes!
Eagle Cannon - A ballistic barrage of red, white, and blue effects. Our favorite new patriotic item.
Mt. Rushmore - Enjoy the expansive breaks from these majestic 9-shot cakes. Big, loud breaks with assorted effects.
