Boom. Hiss. Crack. And Other Noises to Avoid This July.
Whether fireworks are rained out, the mosquitoes are too blood-thirsty or this holiday just isn’t your speed, try some indoor party gear that gives your Independence Day bash some quirk value.
Celebrate Independence Day the urban way — in the chic indoors. You avoid the broiling hot concrete jungle, the sea of hungry bugs and your neighbors’ not-quite-legal DIY fireworks. Think you can’t recreate a cool experience sans a skyline and bonfire? You can.
Deck out your living room in red, white and blue streamers and spread a picnic blanket on the floor. Adorn with the items below:
Décor. An American flag rug from ABC Carpet & Home’s Project Americana is a luxe and patriotic addition to any room. This version is exclusive to Gilt so if you missed the sale, use it for inspiration. $1950
Tunes. Get your “viva la America” chant on with patriotic tunes that pay homage to your country and those who’ve fought for it, $17
Show. Bet you thought you couldn’t bring the explosion part of July 4 inside. Well, here they are, indoor fireworks. (All we need now is for technology to shake and serve our drinks.) Thanks again to the Japanese, Uchiage Hanabi Fireworks Projector, $166
Coasters. Show your kitschy side with patriotic table protectors. $10.
