If you are looking for some DIY outdoor decorations for your 4th of July party, this list has lots of simple ideas for patriotic decor that look great and won’t cost a lot.
The Fourth of July just seems to be made for having a get-together. It’s summer and the weather is good and everyone is in the mood for a cookout.
That’s why I love having Independence Day parties. They’re outdoors (less mess to clean up in the house!), very casual (no dressing up!) and it’s okay to do all of your cooking after your guests arrive (less work to do ahead of time!)
Other than the rain dance to keep it from raining, my 4th of July get-together is pretty much the least stressful holiday party I hold. Although now that I think about it…doesn’t a rain dance bring rain rather than keep it away? Maybe that’s why there always seems to be a downpour right when I start up the grill :)
To keep it easy, I also like to stick to really simple outdoor decorating ideas (shocking as that may seem it you’ve seen the decorations for some of my other parties).
So I thought I’d share my easy 4th of July outdoor decorating ideas just in case you also want to take advantage of them.
