Does your family ever host Fourth of July parties, picnics or barbecues for friends and neighbors to enjoy? If so, there are many considerations that go into the planning and hosting of such an event.
Of primary importance is the food; of course, you will want to have a bunch of delicious barbecue-ables on hand to tempt all your picnic guests, not to mention a variety of of cold drinks and some luscious desserts. But since this is a crochet blog and not a food blog, we’ll skip any further discussion about the edibles, and focus on discussing the decorations instead.
If you would like to make crochet a part of your Fourth of July celebration, perhaps you’d enjoy crocheting any of these Americana-themed decorations in red, white and blue. They’ll make lovely accents to your party décor, and you’ll be able to use them every summer, for many years to come.

Fourth of July Potholders and Kitchen Accessories
I think these red, white and blue potholders are ideal for summer time use, including but not limited to Fourth of July entertaining; they’re great for carrying hot food between the kitchen, the picnic table, and the barbecue area. You can also crochet dishcloths in red, white and blue as well. One of the objects in the picture above is an afghan stitch dishcloth I crocheted in a variegated red, white and blue yarn colorway. Although that exact yarn has now been discontinued, the idea remains useful. Overall, the dishcloth design is well-suited for using on patriotic occasions however you decide to incorporate red, white and blue into the color scheme.
