Don't fret over your fourth of July party just follow Clinton Kelly's tips. His spicy firecracker pocorn and very American dessert are sure to make your celebration a success.
Fire It Up!
Firecrackers may be illegal in some states, but fiery popcorn is a must! Put some extra pop in your popcorn with cayenne pepper and sea salt, served in red white and blue party bags. These also work as festive table centerpieces for backyard celebrations.
Three Chairs for the Red White and Blue!
Take the parade-theme into the patio party! Try sprucing up outdoor seating with festive red white and blue paper mache and streamers...and for some extra cushioning, pick up some red white and blue chair cushions for a more comfortable fourth!
Show Your Colors
For a no-fail Independence Day dessert, line these up on the picnic table: One giant bowl filled with red (hulled) cherries and strawberries. Another giant bowl mounded with freshly whipped cream. And one more with fresh-from-the-farmer’s-market blueberries and blackberries. To pass that up would be un-American!
