Everything You Need for the 4th of July
The 4th of July is around the corner and regardless if you’re hanging out at home, going to a BBQ with friends and family, or heading out of town, it’s fun to get festive and enjoy the day! I know I love to spend my day outside on the 4th and enjoy the sunshine. This year Matt and I are going to host our first 4th of July in the new house. I’m super excited, it will be nice to spend time with family.
There’s so much 4th of July decor and so many things that might be on your list, so I put together everything you need for 4th of July! From outfits and accessories to games, and essentials for the day, all of this will have you covered for your long-weekend fun. Plus, this stuff is great to use beyond the 4th all summer long.
I love this matching striped button-up and shorts set for the 4th! It really works for any occasion. Throw it over a bathing suit if you’re headed to the beach or the pool, or wear a simple tank underneath for a comfortable but festive look. You can also mix and match the pieces for a ton of different outfits!
You can’t do the 4th without some music, so this Bluetooth soundbar is essential. It’s compact, super cute, and comes with a remote for easy music changing. You can use this all year long!
This tasseled umbrella and chairs are an absolute favorite of mine for their usefulness not just on the beach but at home, too! The cutest addition to your backyard, they are great for lounging and the chairs even come as a set of 2.
The 4th of July is always hot so you’ll definitely need something to keep your drinks cold. I love this cooler over a regular white cooler since it gives a fun, retro vibe and has a leather strap. Once your drink is out of the ice, this Brumate can cooler is the perfect way to keep it cold and fits slim cans like my favorite La Croix or other seltzers.
Don’t forget to bring a beach towel if you’re headed somewhere near the water, and make sure to protect yourself from the sunny rays. I love this straw hat for its usefulness plus the fact that it’s a super cute addition to any outfit! Add this sunscreen by Summer Fridays for a natural (SPF 30) glow and you’re set.
Games are also a must for the 4th, so you need this Cornhole Set. The boards are white and super minimal which you can keep that way, or customize and decorate however you’d like! When ordering, you can also choose from over 100 bean bag colors to complete your perfect aesthetic.
