The red, white and blue holidays continue! Since Memorial Day, we’ve been planning how to utilize our patriotic Tanger Outlets decorations from KIRKLAND’S and apply them to our Fourth of July party. Because really who doesn’t love a good ol’ American grill-out celebration with family and friends. Is it even possible to eat too many hot dogs? How many extra minutes will your ‘grill-master’ friend overcook the burgers by? These are the questions that need answering. So go big with the decor and be rewarded by great memories during the slow, sticky days of summer.
|RED BOLOGNA DINNER PLATE $5.97 | DISTRESSED WHITE CHARGER PLATES $7.99
NAVY STRIP NAPKINS $17.99 | NATURAL PIANA TABLE RUNNER $24.99
You can’t have a tablescape without these basics. Instead of diving deep into the July Fourth aisle, these staples should be simple so that you can go all out with the rest. Plus, you don’t want to spend frivolously on things you’ll only be able to use once or twice a year. So start with a simple table runner, that way you can start building off of that. Adding a bold accent plate is always a nice touch, but counter it with a simple charger. However, don’t forget to have a little fun with the napkins.
|GALLON BEVERAGE DISPENSER $31.99 | HAMMERED CLEAR TUMBLERS $15.99
RIBBED WHITE CHIP & DIP BOWL $7.49 | CLEAR GLASS LANTERN $9.99
The extras are the subtle touches that your most observational guests will be dying to steal and take home. I mean, do you see those drink dispensers? We also recommend using these plastic cups to avoid any major party fouls. When you’re having a grill-out, we all know the clean up is the least fun part, so find versatile pieces to make serving and cleaning easier like this chip & dip bowl. Why dirty two dishes when you only have to dirty one? We know your Fourth of July party won’t stop when the sun goes down, so add these little candle votives to set the mood.
|PATRIOTIC PINWHEEL SPINNER $42.49 | BLUE STAR METAL LANTERN $7.79
STARS AND STRIPS WOODEN FIRECRACKERS $9.59 | AMERICAN FLAG COOLER $169.99
This is the best part of having a holiday themed party! Because you’ve stuck to such simple basics and extras, you can really go all out with these. Fun pin-wheels can be in floral arrangements, the star lantern can be put all around your patio to light the way, the wooden firecrackers are a perfect touch to those who are in a neighborhood and have restrictions to real fireworks, and of course, this American flag cooler will be all the rage.
Whether you’re hosting your first Fourth of July or a veteran patriotic party-thrower, we know you’ll get some use from these items. This holiday represents the peak of the summer season and we’re sure that your pad is in top shape to host, minus those last few decorations to make the party perfect.
