Happy Fourth of July from all of us here at Columbia Builders! We hope you can spend this time relaxing and reconnect with friends and family. Since Maryland is reaching a record low of COVID cases, outdoor home parties are now safe to enjoy once again for all vaccinated people. So, it’s a great idea to try and make your home party even better than normal to make up for lost time! If you are wondering how you can make your Fourth of July outdoor home party memorable for years to come, try out these tips!
It’s supposed to be a sizzling hot Summer weekend, so why not try and make some super refreshing cool drinks at home? All you’ll need is some fresh and fun ingredients. One great recipe to try is a simple sparkling fruit punch. Slice up some strawberries and/or raspberries, some blueberries, and some apple slices. Peel the apple slices and cut them into star shapes using a sharp knife. Then, take a glass of lemon-lime soda, sparkling lemonade, or cider (or, for the more mature party guests, champagne or white wine) and add some ice. Then, top with the strawberry and raspberry mix, blueberries, and star-shaped apple slices. The finished product will be a fruity and fun patriotic drink, all made with common ingredients found around the home.
Host an Awesome Home Barbeque
Barbeques are a huge part of owning an American home, especially on Independence Day. One great way to make your barbeque memorable is to include lots of different offerings for all sorts of party guests. Having a huge variety of toppings for hamburgers, hot dogs, and other sandwiches and roast vegetables will make sure no guest leaves your home unsatisfied. And consider that your guests may wish to bring a favorite recipe to share with the group.
Lastly, the physical appearance of your house should look equally patriotic as the exterior yard and lawn. A great way to enhance the patriotic look of your home without making it too overly obvious is by using plaid patterns in red, white, and blue. This is a more subtle way to show off your American pride around the house where it won’t clash with any pre-existing color schemes or designs. For any areas that are mostly outdoors like a sunroom or porch area, try adorning them with lots of American flags!
