These setups will be the stars–and stripes!–of your Fourth of July or outdoor summer party.¬†

 

You’re a grand new flag

Wine Glass Flag Arrangement

Lay out rows of red, white and sparkling wines, making sure the bubbly forms a square in the top left corner. Drop blueberries into the flutes for a pop of color.

 

Star-spangled spread

Flag Charcuterie Design

Use a cookie cutter to make stars from sandwich bread, then top with spreadable cheese and tomatoes.
Slather crackers with Boursin cheese or goat cheese.
We used prosciutto and soppressata, but you can try red sausage or deli meat.

 

Country Strong

Flag Side Dish Arrangement

Pipe softened butter on a plate and chill before serving.
Cut corn on the cob into thirds or halve to fit.
Don’t have red potatoes? Use cherry tomatoes or radishes.

 

Sweet land of liberty

Flag Smores Platter Arrangement

Wrapped Hershey’s Kisses make great sparkly stars.
The rest of you s’more ingredients are your stripes!
