The weekend of July 4 is almost here. Whether you are planning to read a book on the beach to celebrate your annual vacation, watch fireworks in the park or play games in the backyard, it’s not a bad idea to have a picnic with family and friends.
If you haven’t started planning for a picnic party on July 4th, don’t be nervous: almost everything you need is available on Amazon and can be delivered to your door within a few days. From red, white and blue decorations and blankets to condiments and cups, CBS Essentials has collected ten items that will help make your July 4th picnic wonderful and festive.
All you need to collect in person is the food-maybe your family is on the way to the fireworks display.

Each cup is made of dishwasher-friendly food-grade silicone and recyclable materials, and does not contain BPA, phthalates, lead or glue.
Yeti coolers are designed for long-distance transportation, which is why the brand claims that they are “the last cooler you will need”. Critics love them-they are rated 4.8 stars on Amazon-praised their carrying capacity (20 cans with ice), their ease of rolling, and how they refrigerate food for several days. Comes with a dry basket.
Whether your picnic on July 4th is to the beach or the mountain, music is always a must to create an atmosphere.

In addition, blue is suitable for holidays!
