Okay, so let’s get you started to the first of the many ways you can celebrate July 4th both joyfully and without hurting your budget. As you can see from the list above, I have mentioned creating things by hand, which not only saves you a lot of money, but also is a beautiful and fun experience altogether. Think about it, the surprise and enjoyment you can leave your guests in after telling them everything was created by you, is something you cannot do with things you purchase from the markets, oh no! Celebrate July 4th like never before and give your friends and family a celebration they will never forget!
If you love entertainment, then you may host a potluck in order to celebrate July 4th. If you are situated near a place with a brilliant view of firework displays, then this can be extremely fun. However, providing your guests with food and drink can be a little expensive, which is why you should consider a potluck for keeping the costs low. This means everyone will be bringing a food item each, one thing you do not want is everyone bringing the same thing, which is why you need to stay organized and categorize the food types.
Make Your Outfit
Instead of buying an outfit with the American flag on it, why not create your very own and celebrate July 4th in your hand-made outfit. It can be very surprising, but once you get to it, you will definitely find several things in your closet that you can use for this purpose and event. Reds, blues, and whites are all you need in order to be ready with the celebration spirit. Alternatively, you do not have to be in the full outfit, oh no! Even if it is just a bandanna featuring the American flag, this will work brilliantly for you to celebrate July 4th.
Miss the Fireworks
Okay, so do not miss them entirely, but do not buy your own if there is a display that is taking place near you. Even though they can be so much fun, they are not safe, so just consider a few sparklers for your celebration.
The sangria beverage is the best drink to make if you are going to be providing drink during the celebration. It comes in many different forms, all of which you can prepare before the celebration and celebrate July 4th in ease and without preparing cocktails whilst spending time with your guests.
Make Decorations Yourself
Making decorations yourself can be a fun experience, as there are numerous inexpensive and easy decorations to make by yourself. The variety ranges from blue cutout stars, red garlands, red sparkly napkin holders, blue and white pipe cleaners, and more.
Shop a Year Early
If you do your shopping straight after July 4th the previous year, then you will definitely have many decorations to use the following year to celebrate July 4th. This is the time they will be on discount and is a brilliant way to stock up.
Take Advantage of Free Activities
Fourth of July comes packed with many forms of entertainment, such as live music, parades, decorating contests for the little ones, and much more. Choosing to take advantage of these activities will give you free activities for your celebration, which leaves only the cold drinks and snacks that will need to be brought from home.
Do Not Overpay for Hotels If You Are Travelling
If you choose to celebrate July 4th travelling, then ensure to think twice about where you stay. Watch out for hotel rates and consider renting an apartment or house instead of staying at a hotel.
In order to celebrate this Independence Day, you can also camp out. The weather is definitely on your side as it is July, which is why you should definitely take the chance. Staying in one of America’s national parks is the best way to spend this day, and to top it all up, you may also be offered a reservation in advance for a desired camping spot. If you do consider camping, be sure to get your reservation sorted, as popular parks can fill up fast!
