The weather isn't the only thing heating up this summer, it's nearly time to fire up the grill and invite your family, friends and neighbors over to celebrate our freedom. You may already be hours deep in your Pinterest search for all things red, white and blue. Or you might have been busy visiting each firework stand along the highway in an attempt to blow the neighborhood across the street out of the water this year. But there's an important aspect of Independence Day that simply can't be pushed off, and that's the food.
SPARK UP YOUR TABLE SPREAD
We have the freedom to put anything we want on our table this 4th of July, and that opportunity shouldn't be wasted! This year, decorate your tablescape with light eats featuring watermelon or berries, or take it easy and order some pre-made platters from us at Heirloom. Being the first snack of a firework-filled evening, the hor d'oeuvres you serve need to make a bang!

GRILLING & CHILLING
Luckily for you, food is kind of one of our strong suits here at Heirloom. We take pride in curating delicious meals that will make your guests question their own menu decisions, because yours is just that much better. We might be a bit biased, but our 4th of July Family Grill Kit is one for the books! Take some of the heat off of hosting with our ready-to-grill hotdogs, hamburgers, housemade BBQ chips, steakhouse wedge salad, firecracker corn and much more!
RED, WHITE & BOOZE
In order to successfully celebrate any holiday, especially one that is so important to our country, drinks are in order! Get your American flag koozie out of the holiday bin, because you're definitely going to need it. Kick things off with our very own hand-crafted Watermealon Limade cocktail/mocktail and sit back & enjoy a sweet summer refreshment! Feeling crafty? Check out a few other perfectly patriotic cocktail recipes!
Get ready to sweeten up your 4th of July with some red, white, and blue pastries and baked goods! This portion of the meal is definitely what your sweet-tooth guests are craving. Not a baker? (It's okay, not all of us are, me included!) Instead of spending time in the kitchen, order our Patriotic Cupcakes or Sugar Cookie Bars and have them delivered directly to your home or office!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!
Everyone enjoys feeling special on their birthday, and why should our home sweet home be any different? Your tablescape should not only feature a red, white, and blue color scheme, but should involve patriotic props and inventive ideas that make your table pop! Whether you adorn your table with florals, mini USA flags or unique napkins, your party is sure to explode!
