Because our independence is a pretty memorable thing if you ask us


Ahhh, the 4th of July. One of the biggest holidays in the country. You know: the day you get together with your friends and family for some of the best food, greatest fun, and most spectacular views all year. After all, who can resist a good Independence Day party?

And since the 4th is on a Monday this year, we finally have a three-day weekend to really celebrate the beauty of this nation’s freedom (for a whopping 250 years)! Not sure how you and the fam are going to party? Here are a few ideas to ring in our anniversary of independence in style during 2016:

1. Bet on backyard games.

Between the kids competing with one another and you finally having the opportunity to relax with your loved ones (thank goodness for a holiday!), your family loves a good game day. And the 4th of July is the perfect opportunity to whip out good old yard games. Dig out your ladder ball, find the bean bag toss, and grab the bocce ball set — you’re all set for a great time outside.

Why not go the extra mile and create a series of tournaments? Your family can pair off into teams and compete for the ultimate title of top dog of the backyard.

2. Why go in when you can camp out?

There’s something about that fresh 4th of July air that just makes you want to spend the entire day and night outdoors — so why not go for it this time? Instead of heading inside post-fireworks, pack up a small bag and grab your tent for an entire evening of post-sun fun! Whether with family or a group of your friends, camping out is a great way to enjoy the fresh air we all love this time of year.

3. Host a classic cookout.

The classic go-to 4th of July party is the backyard barbecue. Grab some of your favorite steaks, a few cobs of corn, and some watermelon — you can’t go wrong with a cookout! And whether you’re doing something small with the family or you invite the whole neighborhood over for fun, your food is going to be a really important piece of your celebration.

And you can’t forget dessert! Instead of settling for the typical berry-topped cake or a fruit salad, why not treat your guests to something extra sweet?

We’ve got the answer, and you don’t even have to go out for top-quality ice cream anymore. Between our thick, moist cakes — layered with some of the richest, creamiest ice cream in the world — our ice cream cupcakes with their Belgian chocolate shell, and our signature catering services, your 4th of July party is bound to be a success.
