Rustic 4th of July Idea #1: Rural Décor
Rustic 4th of July Idea #2: Comfort is KeyTo really set your Fourth of July party apart, create a beautiful and old-fashioned display for your party with these décor ideas. First, for a rustic atmosphere, consider using old watering cans spray painted red, white and blue. Either hang these from tree branches around your venue, or use them as table centerpieces and fill them with our next tip: wildflowers. Nothing says rustic outdoors more than simple, tiny, pristine and rugged wildflowers. Instead of traditional florals—pick some red, white and blue wildflowers to complete your rugged décor. Finally, add glow to your patriotic party as the sun is setting with some old-fashioned lanterns for lighting. These simple and rustic lights add a casual feel to your event, are soft enough not to distract from the fireworks. They may even ward off mosquitoes if you add citronella candles to the mix!
Rustic 4th of July Idea #3: Festive Food and DrinkTo ensure your guests’ comfort as well as incorporate the rustic theme into all aspects of your patriotic party, consider using straw for your seating arrangements! Set the bales up however you want your guests to interact—in a circle for close conversation, in rows to watch fireworks, etc. Then, cover each bale with a festive red, white and blue old-fashioned quilt. For warmth once the sun sets, provide guests with red, white and blue plaid blankets arranged throughout the party locale.
