With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, we wanted to provide a list of things you will need to simply your Independence Day.
- Seating: No one likes to stand the entire time while attending your party. Provide seats with themed cushions to make your guests feel at home.
- Prep the house: Whether it's a pool party or just a patio party, start with a thorough cleaning of the high traffic areas in the house like the bathroom and the kitchen. Then, move your cleaning to the backyard. Put away extraneous items like garden houses and pet toys and wipe down the patio furniture to ensure a clean space for your guests to enjoy themselves.
- Food: A successful Fourth of July party includes an array of delicious food for your guests to pick from. Standard fare for the Fourth includes grilling meats such as chicken, steak, hamburgers and hot dogs. There should be appetizers available to your guests that are easy to eat such as fruit kabobs or chips and dip. Beverages should include a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to cater to your guests' preferences.
- Fun: In addition to fireworks, provide your guests with entertainment before the show starts. Board games or pool games can keep your party going until the fireworks begin.
If this sounds like too much work, you can always scrap the party idea and attend a community event.
