It couldn't be July 4th without Taylor Swift throwing an epic America-themed party at her Rhode Island mansion. Like, the rules of time and space state that she must throw a party or the 4th of July just doesn't happen.
Luckily, Taylor and her Swan Squad delivered.
And they had the most patriotic party on the East Coast. Because Taylor — Party Queen — Swift knows how to throw one Instagramworthy celebration.
Let's examine the evidence.
They drank Stella on plush couches:
And watched flawless fireworks arm in arm:
They held tiny, picture-perfect American flags:
Had a pool full of the hottest new animal-themed floats:
And there was a red, white, and blue Slip 'N Slide, obviously:
They swirled around sparklers:
Rocked some American AF onesies:
🇺🇸 🙌 🇺🇸 🙌
And got down with some pool:
Since Taylor is a baking goddess, they kicked off their mornings by baking a chic feast in the kitchen:
And snacked on some classy cheese and crackers:
They obviously used only appropriate red-white-and-blue towels:
And exclusively ate obligatory firecracker popsicles:
Naturally, because this was July 4th, they baked Ina Garten's famous flag cake:
A cake so flawless we could only attempt to make this in our dreams:
But the most important part of a party is the guests. So clearly the cast of "Bad Blood" was invited, as well as 1989 World Tour BFFs, the Haim sisters:
Obviously, they invited their baes:
And truly proved that Rhode Island is for lovers:
Even Joe Jonas was like, "Yes, I am blessed enough to be dating this 4th of July babe."
Basically, it was PARTY PERFECTION:
Nick Jonas followed the ~suns out guns out~ law of life:
Este Haim showed off her American pride:
And Ed Sheeran stopped by to make a flawless British joke:
So here's to you, Taylor, our fearless unofficial party queen of 2015. May your pool swans flow freely and your Instagrams be a plenty!
