An Imaginary Fourth of July Party

It's 4th of July Eve!!  Okay, that's not really a thing.  But this year it totally should be because 4th of July is on a Friday ... which means three-day weekend ... which means technically tonight is a Friday night.  Tomorrow, Americans everywhere will awake brimming with excitement to celebrate our nation's independence with parades, fireworks, barbecue, and booze.  (Or to just have the day off.  Either way, we'll all be excited.)

In honor of the long weekend, I thought it'd be fun to have an (imaginary) 4th of July party right here on Twentieth Street and guess what - you're all invited!  Let's start by seting the scene, shall we?  And since it's an imaginary party, why not get a little fancy?

I'd feel perfectly happy and patriotic in any one of those settings.  It's super warm pretty much everywhere this time of year in the good ol' U S of A.  Be sure to dress comfy.

Oh, man.  All that's lovely but this summertime heat is still making me sweat.  Something to drink, perhaps?

Aright ... now I'm hungry.  I mean, it is a barbecue after all.  I'll be having my burgers with a lettuce wrap this Fourth but please eat a glutenous toasted bun and some pie for me, okay?

With full bellies and happy hearts, it's finally time for some fireworks.

Having a hard time finding the source for the first one but it's so pretty. If it's yours, let me know!

What will you be doing to celebrate the Fourth (or to just enjoy the weekend)?





  1. Love it! I would certainly feel patriotic in any of those settings, too. Not sure what we're up to yet for tomorrow -- there was a chance of hurricane conditions 'round these parts, but I think we'll be spared! Have a feeling our day off will require continued unpacking, cleaning and organizing . . . and I'm okay with it. :) We'll watch the fireworks on TV!

  2. omg your party looks amazing!! can i come!!?

  3. I'm feeling a little more festive this summer, it must be because the Fourth is on a Friday, right? Happy holiday-ing and #MERICA!

  4. Oh those cocktails + bbq food look so delicious! I'm looking forward to watching fireworks tomorrow. (I'm also excited to see Brazil play for the WC, which is not a 4th of July thing, but you know... it's another reason to party!)
