Independence Day is a time for celebration, a day for family and friends to come together to honor freedom and the history of the United States. So, we have put together a few tips to help you create the perfect atmosphere and have a memorable 4th of July with your loved ones.

1. Plan your menu around Veroni delicacies

Veroni’s high-quality charcuterie, including prosciutto, mortadella, and salami, can transform every meal into a gourmet experience. Start with a charcuterie board artfully arranged with a variety of Veroni cured meats and cheeses, fresh fruit, and artisan bread. If you’re looking for a stress-free solution, you can opt for our Antipasto Italiano party trays(link) or our AperiTime line (link), our ready-to-use charcuterie boards! Not only do these make for a delicious start to your meal, but they also serve as a beautiful decoration for your table. If you don’t know where to start, get inspired by these beautiful creations from @Ereka Vetrini and @Kelsey Bassett!

2. Create a relaxed and festive atmosphere

Independence Day is all about enjoying good company and creating lasting memories. Set up an outdoor picnic area with comfortable seating, colorful blankets, and cushions. String lights and lanterns can add a festive touch as the sun sets. Encourage your guests to share stories and play games to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

3. Incorporate Red, White, and Blue

Embrace the patriotic spirit by incorporating the iconic red, white, and blue into your decorations and food presentation. Use these colors in your tableware, napkins, and even your food – imagine fresh berries with cream or a flag-themed dessert platter. It’s a simple way to honor the day while adding a fun and vibrant theme to your gathering.

Enjoy the day with great food and good company. And don’t forget to follow us on our social media channels IG & FB. Happy Independence Day!
