It’s officially summer, and with less than two weeks until Fourth of July, now is the time to start planning your Independence Day festivities! Keep reading for 4 Stylish and Fun Fourth of July Party Ideas.
1. Beverage Service
In the heat of July, it’s important that everyone stays hydrated. Fill big dispensers or pitchers with ice water and disperse them around the party area to make sure your guests stay safe in the warm weather. You can also use glass dispensers as self-serve stations for mixed drinks or sangria with fresh fruits. Or, if you prefer to serve single-serving beverages, fill up big buckets with ice and stock them with bottles and cans.
2. Fun and Games
Something about this holiday manages to get everyone in a playful mood. Be prepared with lots of lawn games and activities for the kids as well. Ring toss is an easy DIY project, tic-tac-toe and Yahtzee have large lawn versions, and water guns and bubble stations will keep kids entertained for hours.
3. Creating Comfort
Since the Fourth of July is usually a day that’s spent outdoors, make sure guests are kept comfortable throughout the day and into the night. Sunscreen and bug spray will be appreciated, and setting up lounge furniture and fire pits will have everyone relaxing well into the night as you wait for the fireworks to begin.
4. Fireworks and Sparklers
Every Fourth of July party should end with some sort of fireworks! If you can’t bring out the big ones (or don’t feel like transporting the entire party to a firework-safe location), sparklers are a fun alternative for guests of all ages. Have plenty on hand for the end of the night when everyone wants to join in on the fun!
