Another holiday seems to be sneaking up on all of us: the 4th of July! And if you’ll be having that patriotic theme for your wedding rehearsal dinner, we figured that quick and easy food and decorating ideas would be more than welcome. So here are 8 great finds that are sure to bring festive color and a yummy menu to your pre-wedding gathering with minimal effort, fuss, and expense!
Plan a Fun Night with Pleasant Surprises!
Start with a casual picnic-style table setting arranged with simple elements on a nude tablecloth topped with navy blue napkins and red plate chargers ! Then, for a fittingly scrumptious spread—that’s also a breeze to serve—try a boxed meal of grilled ribs, corn on the cob, fries, fruit bites, and an ice cold drink. Have other goodies laid out for guests to serve themselves: bowls of fresh raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries, the cutest lattice-top mini pies, refreshing popsicles in favorite summer flavors, and for a ‘grown up’ beverage, white wine sangria with red and blue berries tossed in! Finally, end the evening with a pretty celebration cake!
Then, as everyone lights up the sparklers to round up the July 4th festivities, hand out fun ring pops as favors symbolizing your upcoming nuptials, of course!
