This weekend, we’re working on planning out some party ideas for a good ol’ 4th of July celebration for the long holiday weekend coming up. Before we know it, Independence Day will be here, so we’re figuring out our drink tables, seating arrangements, and tablescapes so we’ll be prepared by the time the big day rolls around. We thought we’d share some of the top ideas on the list with you all, and we’d love to hear what ideas you might have for your own party in the comments! Here are some of our favorite (and easy) 4th of July party ideas.
