Red, White, and Blue Parfaits

Easy to make, delicious to consume, and moderately healthy, these patriotically colored parfaits are a must-do for your Fourth of July party. Pro Tip: Save yourself some trouble by setting up the ingredients (blueberries, strawberries, vanilla yogurt, and clear cups) in a sort of “parfait station.” You’ll save yourself an extra step, and the young ones will love the activity.

Patriotic Costume Contest

Which one of your guests can deck themselves out in the most red, white, and blue? See how patriotic your friends and family can get when you provide silly glasses, feather boas, face paint, and various other fun dress-up items (all red, white, and blue, of course). Hand out a prize to the winner, like a special sparkler or squirt gun!

S’mores Bar

Young and old delight in roasting marshmallows over an open flame or charcoal grill. Set up all the ingredients on a table with adorable American decor and let your guests go wild with the graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolates. Pro Tip: Want to spice up your s’mores? Offer sprinkles, icing, melted chocolate, peanut butter, and any other toppings that will let your guests get creative with this all-American treat.

These are just a few of the tips you can implement to make this year’s Fourth of July party one worth remembering. If you want to celebrate with America’s most revered luxury brand, stop into DeVoe Cadillac and achieve your own independence with a brand-new Cadillac.
