The Fourth of July, what a time. All your favorite people are gathering at someone’s house - preferably the one with the biggest yard and a grill - and commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. There are sure to be dozens of parties thrown of all shapes and sizes.
Now there are 2 types of people: those that enjoy going to the party and those that want to throw the best party. If you are in the latter group and want to learn more tips and tricks, then read on.
Create Unique Festive Invites
It’s hard to throw an Independence Day party if no one knows it’s happening! Make your invitations as colorful and festive as possible to let your guests know they can’t miss it. Staying within the red, white and blue color scheme is definitely a sure fire way but don’t be afraid to try something different. If you need some help with the wording check out this great list put together by Brandon Gaille.
Get people in the mood for the holiday by decking out your backyard with some great decorations or with these great party ideas. Nowadays you can find anything with a patriotic spin, from tablecloths to wreathes, all of which would help set the mood. But don’t underestimate a well placed American flag or vase. Be sure to make George Washington proud, whatever way you go.
Delicious Cocktails & Ice Cold Beer
Keep the fun coming with festive cocktails and some crisp brews. Don’t forget the customized KOOZIE® & COOLIES so the beers don’t feel like they’re missing out on the action! Obviously you can go with the same theme design or you can order some blank coolies in a good colorful pattern. This allows you to sign and decorate the KOOZIE® & COOLIES however you want, maybe you could make it into a fun activity.
Finger-licking Hors D'oeuvres
We don’t want anyone getting hangry! As everyone is waiting for the grill to warm up make sure their bellies stay full with these fun and tasty appetizers. Also there is nothing wrong with making the apps be the main portion of the meal either. Of course though to have a classic 4th of July party there will be burgers and hotdogs on the grill. Throw on some chicken, lobster, and some veggies if you’re trying to go all out.
Treat Yourself and Your Guests
After everyone’s had their savory fix, it’s time to move onto the sweets. Ever go to a party where there wasn’t dessert or some type of sugary delight to top everything off? Remember how sad, confused, and incomplete you felt? Don’t make your guests feel that way. Save the day by creating one of these 50 best dessert recipes.
Provide Sparklers for Everyone
Nothing says Independence Day more than lighting stuff on fire. This can obviously be done with fireworks but you could also make a huge bonfire or aim for smaller by handing out sparklers to everyone. At the end of the party, bring everyone together, light them then sit back and enjoy the show.
Awesome Coolie Party Favors
Now that you’ve thrown the best 4th of July party you’ve got one final thing to do that really seals the deal. Send your guests home with a reminder of said kick ass party. This can be done with several items but who doesn’t love a collapsible coolie? They’re very portable and useful in all types of situations from keeping your drink cold as well as advertising your business. When designing you can use the same template from your invitation or start completely from scratch. All you need to do to get started is fill out a free proof form.
And then the last tip is just have fun. There is nothing wrong with putting together a plan, just don’t expect everything to go exactly that way. Some things will change last minute but as long as you're with the ones you love celebrating America’s Independence then you should be fine.
