Have a budget friendly Fourth of July picnic with Goodwill!

What are your plans for the fourth of July? Independence Day is a day to celebrate family and friends, summer, food, fireworks and our country. What better way to celebrate than a picnic! Here’s a few ways Goodwill can help it go off with a ” bang.”

  1. Red white and blue table accessories

Create a festive America themed tablescape! Scour our housewares section for red, white and blue plates, cups, pitchers and other table items. Instead of getting paper plates that are thrown away, consider going sustainable and picking up new-to-you plates at Goodwill that you can wash and use again. After you finish in the housewares section, head to our linens racks for a vintage tablecloth or even a repurposed sheet!

2. Vintage Cookcooks

What are you going to make for this picnic? How about some Americana throwback recipes? A recent trend on social media is to cook out of vintage cookbooks. Find recipe books from years past in our book section and cook some unique and new-to-you American recipes! Or make it an event and share recipes amongst your guests so everyone can bring a vintage dish to try. 

3. Your Outfit!

We can’t forget the most important part of any gathering- your outfit! Our racks are full of summer clothing. Go dressy with a flowery maxi dress or casual with shorts and a tank. Don’t forget to check out our shoe selection for some chic vintage sandals. It’s easy to thrift your way to a stand out red, white and blue picnic ensemble at Goodwill!

Celebrate the Fourth of July in style with Ohio Valley Goodwill and give back to your community at the same time! When you shop at Goodwill, you can be confident that you’re getting great deals and helping others living right here in Greater Cincinnati.
