Raise a Glass
With matching outfits and candy for the kiddos and refreshing drinks for adults, Elizabeth Chambers (with husband Armie Hammer and her kids Harper and Ford) has all of the essentials for a family-friendly celebration.
Bake or Break
A unique take on a traditional flag cake, Gwyneth Paltrow’s stars and stripes pie is sure to be a crowd favorite.
Keep It Fresh
Want a lighter alternative to the hot dogs on the menu? Jessica’s fresh-fruit flag is a nice option. (Bonus points for bravery if you’re the one wearing a pristine white dress to your cookout.)
Wave the Flag
A festive outfit is essential for any 4th of July festivities, whether that’s a flag-inspired swimsuit like Paris Hilton’s or combination of red, white and blue pieces.
Go High Impact
Of course, if you want to be extra extra, take a cue from the queen of July 4th parties, Taylor Swift, and provide all your pals with matching patriotic attire. (You’ll remember the striped swimsuits, waterslides and matching temporary tattoos as well.)
Celebrate the Sweet Life
America Ferrera matched her refreshing treat to her tee. Now that’s party planning!
Nail Your Look

Don't Forget the Patriotic Plates
