Are you planning on throwing the best Fourth of July party this year? If so, you’re at the right place!
Even though organizing a party may be risky and difficult, throwing the best 4th of July party is not as stressful as it sounds. Even if the “best” is out of the question, you may want to read along to find the top five things you must have at your 4th of July party this year.
The first thing you must have at your party is your family. Sometimes getting your daughter and her family to come down or getting Aunt Annie to visit may not be so easy.
Although getting your entire tree would be fantastic, if possible, try getting your close relatives and the people you want to share the holiday with to come to your party.
An excellent way to convince your family to show up would be by sending out cute invitations such as flag-designed ones. These could be bought at party stores as July gets closer. If you want your relatives to see you’re trying hard to make them come, try crafting the invitations yourself. Get your children to help with the coloring and let your imagination flow!
Next, you must have cool decorations to set the mood for your party. First, make sure that your party location is clean and in good condition. If it is at your home, mow the lawn, trim the garden, and clean the house. If it is at the park, make sure the place is clean.
Then you can add all of your fun decorations, which may include balloons, streamers, confetti on the tables, banners, bows, etc. You can buy these items at your nearby party store or order things online if you have enough time to wait for them to be shipped. Be sure to pop into the Dollar Tree to check out many of the inexpensive patriotic decorations available!
Some of the most fabulous Fourth of July decorations can be made by you! So get creative because cool decorations are a must-have for your party!
You can’t have a Fourth of July Party without the red, white, and blue desserts! If you can, try baking your desserts because there’s nothing better than what is homemade. If you run out of time, supermarkets such as Walmart are great when it comes to holiday treats.
Make sure you have various desserts at your party, including cookies, cupcakes, fruit bowls, and a centerpiece cake. Also, make sure that everything is 4th of July related. Set up a special table to exhibit your desserts and let your guests’ mouths water. Fun, decorative foods add to a patriotic feel for the festivities!
The fourth thing you need for your party is games and prizes! Everyone loves a good game with a prize to win, even adults. So have games ready to play with a 4th of July theme. If you can’t think of games with a 4th of July theme, check out one of the games suggested here. And try wrapping prizes in red, white, and blue gift bags to go with the theme. These colors should be easy enough to find at the dollar stores.
Add sweets and candies, and favors such as whistles, mini-flags, and flag pins. Another goodie everyone will love is a plastic Uncle Sam hat that can be distributed to each guest as they arrive. Your party won’t be the same without prizes!
Last, what’s a Fourth of July party without the fireworks? Even if your party can’t administer massive sky lighting fireworks, buying smaller ones to light during the night is a good idea. You can get these anywhere once July arrives, but you can try getting them from the supermarket since you want safe fireworks. There you will find firework packages for low prices. While not lighting up the sky, even sparklers and snaps can be loads of fun, especially if you have younger kids at the party.
Make sure to take precautions and all the safety measures needed when the time for the fireworks comes. You don’t want an accident to ruin the night!
