Stars and Stripes

American Independence Day or as the Americans call it, the Fourth of July, commemorates the United States independence form the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1776. It’s commonly celebrated with fireworks, parades and parties and is a great chance to indulge in the fantastic nostalgia that the American dream has instilled all over the world.

Think of the stars and stripes or Hollywood glamour as a great way to inspire a summer picnic or themed cocktail party.

Have a look here for some Alfies hand-picked inspiration:
