Throwing a great 4th of July party doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money. With a little bit of research and elbow grease, you can throw an awesome Independence Day party and stay under budget. CreditBox has some creative ideas to help you throw a 4th of July bash your friends will be talking about for years.

Patriotic Playlist
Instead of hiring a band or DJ for your 4th of July party, make your own patriotic playlist. It’ll save money and you’ll have way more control over the type of music you want to listen to. You can add in a few American classics like “American Pie,” by Don McLean or “Born in the U.S.A” by Bruce Springsteen to your regular repertoire.  

Festive Foods
Go to the grocery store or host a pot luck instead of hiring a caterer to save money on your 4th of July party. If every guest brings a dish or beverage to share, everyone saves money and gets to eat what they like. Make sure there are lots of grillable goods like hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, and buns – and don’t forget the corn on the cob and potato salad for a classic 4th of July cookout. Red, white, and blue cupcakes, or rice krispie treats finish off the patriotic theme.

DIY Décor
It doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money on decorations you’ll only use once per year. The dollar store has lots of awesome, inexpensive decorations to give your 4th of July party that patriotic touch. It’s a great place to buy red, white, and blue paper plates, cups, and napkins so that you don’t have to wash a ton of dishes when your party is over.

You can save even more money by making your own decorations. Online sites like Pinterest are overflowing with ideas for DIY 4th of July décor ideas like paper ribbons, DIY bunting, patriotic centerpieces, and easy-to-make, festive wreaths for your front door. Buying cheap décor or making your own will save money for you to use later on in the year or for something more important.
