July 4 has always been one of my favorite holidays. We go to my family cabin on Lake Montana every year with my extended family and we made memories year after year to spend time together, so it was always a magical holiday just knowing that it would be family time together, year after year – long tradition And create new ones. Every year we have a tea party and a charcuterie board, this year I wanted to give it a try before moving to Montana with some of our friends and family এটি it’s on my bucket list to make a counter charcuterie board (delicious and sweet!). , So we all went out with festive drinks and a s’mores bar.
Here are some of the best hacks I’ve found to close the 4th of July final party. Don’t feel like you need to put them all together! Even just adding 1 or 2 will add a fun, festive touch to your holiday weekend.

Hack # 1: Color-featured cuisine
To spread a festival, I knew I wanted to stick to a red-white-and-blue color-scheme for all snacks. It has made it a lot easier to bring everything together and stick to the 4th of July festival theme. I went to Sam’s Club and knew it would be easy to get fruit with all the red and blue berries, but I was surprised how many more red / white / blue snacks and candies they had for the upcoming holiday – especially when it comes to ‘sweet’ Spread which will share later. 3
Hack # 2: It’s all details
Mini alphabet cutter
They are shaped cutters
Treats: Sam’s Club
I’m always a sucker for details for any event I attend, so I knew I wanted to include some clever, festive details wherever I could. Try using a mini cookie-cutter to pronounce the sound of watermelon or cheese. We also used Star cookie cutters from this set for the cheese and sprinkled them on the July 4 charcuterie. I was helped by a local company from Utah and they made the most beautiful salami roses! My aunt actually tried to teach me Lake a few years ago, just use a glass rim and stun them while laying around the rim to get that perfect round shape.
Hack # 3: Sparkler, but sweet
We’ve created some fruit sparklers for kids from watermelon stars and blueberries for some healthy treat options. They themselves look very pretty but we also added red-white-and-blue drinks made for an extra festive touch.
Hack # 4: Let the festivities flow
Be it kid-friendly or adult drinks, drinks are a great excuse to grow up on holidays. We set up a drinking table for the kids where they could assemble their own drinks. I set up red, white and blue gated and sprite for the base and then set up cool-aid ice cubes, cotton candy, popsicles, licorice straw and fresh fruit so they could be creative.
Hack # 5: Don’t skimp on sweets
My kids would eat candy all day every day if I gave it to them so they could be in heaven when they spread out this full candy and saw the decaying s’mores bar. I’m glad my friendship for going to the top with these kinds of things won me some points. 😉 They said it was the best 4th July spread of all time. We made a candy charcuterie board with all of the red, white and blue we got from Sam’s Club and it was very easy to put together. We also made a s’mores bar for our new Fire Pit area and mixed a variety of chocolates – milk chocolate, cookies and cream, ridges, Andes mints and more. Dessert boards were such a clever addition and were super popular with the whole family!

Also this red top, I’m obsessed with the square neckline on it! It comes in lots of colors and it’s under 30!
Also Beck & Noelle Board Co. Tell who you are, if you live in Utah and want a big charcuterie board, or want to learn how they can help you set it up or do the whole thing for you. I love learning and being a part of the process but they both do!
