16B Wednesday, June27, 2012 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Heather Hunsaker Chef Independence Day is a day full of history, tradition and fun family festivities. A casu- al and budget.friendly back- yard bash is the perfect way to celebrate this holiday hon- oring our American heritage. To help plan the perfect patriotic party for July Fourth, without blowing your entire week's food bud- get, follow these professional party planning tips. Decorations: Keep things simple and stick with a red, white and blue color scheme. Avoid the overpriced seasonal aisle and look for plates, napkins and table- cloths in patriotic colors where traditional paper goods are sold. An inexpen- sive package of small Ameri- can flags, some glass jars and other decor found in patriotic colors from around your home can be used as center- pieces and party decor. AH-American food: A Fourth of July feast should be simple yet traditional. Serve affordable family-friendly favorites such as hamburgers and hot dogs, corn on the cob, watermelon, potato salad and lemonade. For dessert choose American favorites such as s'mores, apple pie or pound cake topped with fresh straw- berries, blueberries and whipped cream to create a stunning patriotic dessert. Entertainment: Show your pride by creating an American playlist full of songs saluting the stars and stripes to have playing in the background of your party. Play games such as capture the flag, flag football, catch or Frisbee. Cool off by having a water balloon fight, chasing each other with water guns or taking a dip in the pool. Neighborhood parades and fireworks displays are also popular and traditional entertainment options. If choosing to create your own fireworks show, use caution and take note of your local city ordinances and fireworks bans. Make it a stress-free event: Don't be afraid to ask for help. Many people offer to help when they arrive or of- fer to bring dishes or drinks to gatherings; so let them. The less stressful your event, the more fun had by all! Now time to get planning!
