Holidays are a big deal in the United States—we love our Halloweens and our Christmases and Easters. But one of the biggest holidays? The one celebrating our own country's independence: The 4th of July! Not only do we get to celebrate with deliciously patriotic food and drink, but there are always fireworks involved, and it doesn't get much better than that. Happily, our favorite pinners have the spirit and pinning great things that are getting us pumped up for this beautiful day. Click through for everything from decor inspiration to cool new makeup ideas (no boring USA looks here, my friend) to the best ways to celebrate our beautiful country through spirited edibles.
Beach Blanket Bingo
Themed bingo to get your holiday started on the right foot? Don't mind if we do.
Baby You ARE a Firework
It's not the 4th of July unless there are really neat fireworks involved, duh.
American flag decor doesn't always get the best reputation—here's how to do it right, though.
Not sure how to wear your hair for the holiday? Tie it up in a festive scarf!
Most Patriotic Treats
Themed food is half the fun of July 4th. This cake looks like something we'd eat, definitely.
Red, White & Blue in Ice
Also these sweet, cold treats are about as USA as it gets.
Don't forget the booze!
Stars in Your Eyes
Wanna go over-the-top with your July 4th makeup look? How about adding star stickers to your eyelashes?
Treats for your Noggin
Watermelon is the quintessential summer food—but it's even better worn as an accessory.
Get in the spirit without looking like a cliche.
