4th of July party essentials featured by top US lifestyle blog, Walking in Memphis in High Heels


I am SO pumped that this week is not only 4th of July but my birthday (tomorrow!) I cannot wait to head out of town to the lake and do some entertaining, cooking and have some family fun while out of town.

In case you’re throwing a 4th of July party this week or weekend, make sure you keep reading to see my tips on throwing a party. And I have a special surprise at the end of this post. = )

5 Tips to Throw the Perfect 4th of July Party:

1.) Decide who you want to invite and come up with your guest list. Then send out invitations.

2.) Plan your food and drink list. I LOVE festive foods and drinks that are red white and blue themed! I usually stick for easy food for the main course like hamburgers or hotdogs and then go out for the drinks, appetizers and desserts to really make a festive statement.

3.) Buy some easy and festive decorations for the party and party servingware. I got these cute little banners, garland, plates and pillows all from Dollar General. You don’t have to spend a ton of money! Keep it simple. = )

4.) Plan some fun games to entertain while guests are there. If you don’t have a pool, cornhole and horseshoes are some great ideas.

5.) Find the perfect festive (comfortable) outfit to wear. You’re the hostess, so you have to look the part. Though I love pretty dresses, I usually opt for shorts and tops, rompers and sandals. You’ll be rushing around doing the finishing touches, so keep that in mind when picking out your outfit.

As a special treat for my birthday week, I’ve teamed up with Sugar Boutique to give away $100 to their shop. This is where my cute tie front top is front, and I feel like it is just perfect for the 4th! What is your favorite item from Sugar Boutique?

    What a fun party! I love the idea for this, and the way you decorated is adorable. That pillow is seriously the cutest! I’ll have to keep this in mind for a possible idea for something I can try for the 4th!

  2. Thank you for the tips! It’s going to help me so much when I throw a BBQ on the 4th in our backyard. So glad I finally have a backyard to celebrate 4th of July!

  3. There are so many items that I like. However, my is the Lily Pulitzer Lattice bathing suit. I have been in the market for a new swimsuit and this one would be perfect.

  4. I love all the Lily Pulitzer dresses. BUT my favorite item is the “I drink coffee for your protection” Tshirt. What the perfect sleep shirt or to go for your morning coffee in.

  5. Really love the tabletop decor! Sugar Boutique has so many cute things, but my favorite would have to be the Karlie Monet Halter Tank <3 🙂

  6. Gosh, it’s so hard to choose a favorite item! I love the Lily Pulitzer line. I saw a really cute backpack, tanks, hats and flip flops.

  7. I love the Becca Scarf Caftan! It is very colorful and looks like it would fit great. I love your Walking in Memphis Blog. I live 75 miles from Memphis. Thanks for the giveaway!
