The summer months bring with them an urge to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. What better excuse is there to spend time with your loved ones than a fantastic Fourth of July party? Whether you want a way to wind down with your friends and family after a patriotic parade, or just want some fun activities to while away the daylight hours before shooting off fireworks, here are some ideas that are sure to make your gathering a hit.
- Stay refreshed. Make sure your guests have plenty of refreshing beverages and snacks throughout the day. Lemonade and watermelon are tried-and-true summer favorites, and be sure to have plenty of water on hand. Plan a barbecue or clam bake for dinner, but make sure to have bowls of ice or a cooler on hand for sides and dishes that need refrigeration. For the adults, look into making some patriotic cocktails.
- Ensure entertainment. Keep your guests entertained with fun outdoor games. Inflatable bounces, arts and crafts, and swimming will keep everyone occupied and having a good time. Hold a water balloon fight with red, white, and blue balloons to keep everyone cool. Set up tents and coverings to provide shade if necessary. Make it an event to remember and rent a photo booth—and be sure to have plenty of red, white, and blue props for guests to use in their photos!
- Show your pride. Make sure that your party is unmistakably patriotic by decorating with an American-flag theme. Hang red, white, and blue streamers and balloons; display an American flag; use pinwheels, tablecloths, and other decorations to match the theme. Fireworks are always one of the best parts of a Fourth of July party, but it is important to remember to stay safe.
