5 Easy Ideas To Throw A last Minute 4th of July Dinner Party



When the 4th of July comes around its always a last-minute party I throw. I always have something up my sleeve to get ready for the guests. Most of the recipes are quick and easy. Mt advice is to have a Pasta salad dish, barbecue chicken recipe, and easy dessert you can make with your eyes close.

This past weekend was busy and jam-packed with quality family time. Sunday I hosted a pre-4th of July dinner party a day earlier because my daughter had to fly back to Miami on the actual 4th of July. In less than 15 minutes, I was able to decorate the dining room table and with my blue and white Mediterranean placemats from Capri, Italy.

My daughter recently visited Capri and brought these back for me from her trip. I love them and was happy to be able to show them off. To complement the mats, I placed 4 small flowers arrangement with pink roses and baby’s breath in the center of the table. I picked up some groceries at the supermarket and whipped up an easy family-style dinner. There are many options for creating an easy menu for this party! I choose family favorites like hamburgers and summer vegetables that are always a hit around my household
