It’s almost time for 4th of July parties! 4th of July BBQs are one of BUBBAbassador Courtney’s favorite parties all year.
Whether you are poolside, watching fireworks or simply having a bbq in the backyard, it’s always a fun and festive party. Below, The Chirping Moms blog
shares a few tips for hosting an easy 4th of July BBQ.
Since it’s usually an outdoor party, the color theme is always red, white & blue and any cooking usually takes place on the grill, it’s a good time to host a party that’s more relaxed and easy. To make things even easier, if you like the ideas in the post, print out the shopping list at the end of the post.
Hosting an Easy 4th of July BBQ
1. Red White & Blue Chips & Dip
This is the easiest way to make a festive app/ side for 4th of July. Grab red, white and blue tortilla chips. I even found red star shaped chips at the store! Then salsa and white queso make for the perfect red and white dips for the chips.
2. Grab the Glow Sticks
Whether your guests will be heading to watch fireworks or just running around outside at the BBQ on 4th of July, glow sticks make for a fun little favor. I grab a bunch at the dollar store and tie little bundles to put on the table. As it starts to get dark guests can grab them and wear them… or they light up the table!
3. Another 4th of July BBQ tip for making things easier: stock up on BUBBA burgers.
4. Two Easy Tips for Festive Burgers:
If you want to make your BUBBA burgers festive for the 4th I have 2 easy ideas. One is to get little American flag toothpicks. I got mine on Amazon. The other is to cut stars out of cheese and stick them on top of the bun with the flag toothpick. In just a few minutes you go from having regular burgers to super festive 4th of July burgers!
5. A Festive Dessert: Red, White & Blue Berry Shortcake
