Super Last Minute July 4th Party!

Super Last Minute July 4th Party!

Summer has been floating by and before you know it, it's the 4th of July! You were planning on having a party but with little time left, it seems nearly impossible. But Recipe4Living says you can still host the 4th of July party you've been dreaming about with these quick and easy recipes!

Sometimes, despite our ambitions, we lose track of time and don't begin our party planning and preparations until the last minute. I'm here to tell you that you can still pull off a party. The following menu suggestions are for your consideration, but feel free to buy already-made dishes or desserts if you're really rushed. But, I do suggest you try and make at least one thing yourself because otherwise, what fun would any of this be? Now go and get cooking! You can do it!

Happy 4th of July!

Presentation Pointers: 1. Take a trip to your nearest party store for some 4th of July-themed party ware. If your paper plates, table cloths and napkins all scream 4th of July, you're sure to have a great party.

2. Grill the main course on site during the party to give the main course a fresher feel. This will also save you preparation time!

3. Since most of your food will be sitting out in the sun, keep all perishable items over ice to keep them from spoiling.
