The 4th of July or July 4th is a federal holiday in the United States honoring the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. This important chapter in U.S. history is celebrated all across the nation.
Most people choose to have a party to share with family and friends. Fireworks, barbecues, and picnics are some of the events that often take place during the Fourth of July weekend. Many people look forward to celebrating Independence Day in a variety of ways.
Throwing the perfect 4th of July party
The purpose of a July 4th party is to commemorate the United States’ independence so to keep the patriotic touch alive, people usually incorporate the U.S.A. flag. The red, white, and blue colors of the American flag are predominant in any 4th of July celebration.

Take the party outside
If you are keeping it informal and decide that a barbecue is a way to go, a refreshing red sangria would be the soul of the party. You could use something like this fun, frosted stripes and blue accent Mexican hand-blown glass pitcher.
Martinis are always in style and to keep with the Independence Day theme, you can decorate your bar with stylish, yet fun, red martini glasses with clear stems from Mexico.
