Everything you need for an amazing 4th of July summer party:

1. Keep guests well-fed at your BBQ with the popular Blackstone griddle.

We are huge fans of this best-selling Blackstone griddle, and it’s the perfect addition to your 4th of July cookout or other summer parties. Thanks to its separate cooking zones, you can cook up to four different items all at different temperatures, so you can grill up burgers, brats, chicken, and corn for a crowd all at once.

It has wheels so you can easily move it from spot to spot, plus a paper towel holder, two side shelves, side shelf hooks for hanging tools and a magnetic tool bar so you can easily access your supplies.

2. Need grilling tools to go with your Blackstone? Walmart has you covered.

This is a great grill set! It includes tongs, a large serrated spatula, grilling fork, and a basting brush. Each utensil is dishwasher safe and are very heavy and of nice quality. I like that you can hang them up to store. They wash well, and work perfectly!

3. Serve up drinks with this pitcher & tumblers set.

What a fabulous pitcher and cup set! I love that the pitcher and tumblers are BPA-free, and the fact that the cups stack easily inside the pitcher for convenient storage. The size is perfect for lemonade, water, and lots of other cold drinks and juices.

And bonus – even though it has a nice big capacity, it fits in my fridge, too.

4. Need to server a larger crowd? This Pioneer Woman beverage dispenser fits the bill.

Not only is this drink dispenser gorgeous, it’s super handy to have on hand for entertaining year round! I love the blue color so much as it matches my home. The pourer is very nice quality and works great.

It holds up to two gallons, so you’ll have plenty for all your guests, and when it’s time for cleanup, you can pop it in the dishwasher!

5. This Better Homes & Gardens stand is the perfect compliment to the beverage dispenser.

This basket base is the perfect companion piece to the Pioneer Woman dispenser, and elevates the whole look and function nicely. I love the pretty woven design, and even more so, I love the under $8 price tag!

If you’re not using your beverage dispenser, the stand can be flipped over and do double-duty to hold napkins and utensils, or even fresh fruit or other snacks.

6. Serving more than lemonade? I am in LOVE with the Beautiful by Drew Barrymore slushie maker!

What a fun appliance! I absolutely loved the frozen drink maker to make margaritas! They were so fluffy and delicious, and the spout is perfect for pouring margs. I used the Jose Cuervo light ready to pour margarita mix and LOVED it. Not too sweet and the taste is great – your summer party guests will love this!

I also used it to make banana strawberry smoothies for breakfast and snow cones for the kids. The snow cone ice function does a good job. I am impressed! I didn’t have snow cone syrup and improvised with freezer pops! Not bad. Overall, this is extremely user friendly to set up and use right away. It’s lightweight and easy to clean. It will be perfect to make frozen drinks all summer long. ❤️

If the slush machine shows out of stock for you, consider this similar blender option.

7. Switch from slushies to ice cream with the Ninja CREAMi.

This fantastic ice cream maker is a hit with kids and adults alike – our entire team can’t stop raving about it! Make ice creams, milkshakes, sorbets, dairy-free treats, healthy desserts, and more. Best of all, you control the ingredient so you can tailor your ice cream to your diet or liking.

Set it up on a table for a fun addition to your 4th of July party, and offer a sundae bar full of your favorite mix-ins, syrups, and toppings! Ninja CREAMi machines are sold out pretty much everywhere right now, so I’m excited that Walmart still has it in stock – grab yours soon!

8. Offer your guests dining utensils in this handy rattan caddy.

This is perfect for summer, but honestly you’ll be using this all year long. It’s a convenient way to store napkins and silverware for any type of gathering and is such great quality. I love this cute basket aesthetic as it matches my kitchen and home well.

At under $10, it’s an inexpensive investment in something you’ll get so much use from. You could use it to hold condiments, display flowers, or even tuck the kiddos’ art supplies.

9. Set up a dining space or your buffet on a 6-foot folding table.

Every household needs one of these handy fold-up tables! These are so perfect for creating extra space for entertaining. I created a small buffet table for my summer gathering with it and love that you can easily fold it down flat for easy storage.

It’s very sturdy and works well, and the 6-foot size is so handy. There is even a handle for carrying. (These are great to use for garage sales, too!)

And I didn’t even have to leave home to score everything I needed! From the utensil caddy to the slushie maker – everything was delivered right to my door.

Use the time you saved skipping the store to enjoy a few more frozen treats from your new slushie maker. 😉

    I need some deals on charcoal for 4th of July BBQ cookouts

  2. Maria G

    Hi, I was wondering if Lina can share the recipe for the drinks she has on the picture 😀

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Maria! I used the Jose Cuervo light ready-to-pour margarita for the first time and LOVED it. Not too sweet and the taste is great. It has the mix and liquor in it already so I just added ice. I normally dislike margarita mixes and this one was surprisingly great!
