Whether you are social distancing or only celebrating with your household, there is a lot of preparation that goes into hosting the July 4th festivities. You want to ensure everyone has a great time celebrating this special occasion. You can prepare for your July 4th celebration by keeping the following tips in mind.
Decorate Your Party Area
Decorating your area is a great way to get into the festive mood, even if you are celebrating in the yard to practice social distancing. Start by hanging an American flag to celebrate our country and Independence Day. You can also invest in disposable dinnerware, a tablecloth, and centerpiece in a July 4th theme.
Serve Traditional Cookout Food
You can keep your celebration simple but perfect for Independence Day by serving traditional cookout food. There are many people who love grilled hot dogs and burgers, potato salad, corn on the cob, and potato chips. If you are inviting anyone who is vegan or vegetarian, a vegetable kebab is a great option for your guests.
Sweet, Festive Desserts
There are several options for sweet, festive desserts, and you can start with a traditional apple or cherry pie. Another idea is to place blue Jello at the bottom of each dessert cup, with Cool Whip on top of it, followed by red Jello, all to create a red, white, and blue dessert. You can also put together a fruit salad as a treat for those who are health conscious.
Festive Drinks and Cocktails
You can also serve festive drinks and cocktails to your guests, starting with Hawaiian Punch for the entire family. Hawaiian Punch offers Fruit Juicy Red, White Water Wave, and Berry Blue Typhoon, which is perfect for keeping to the red, white, and blue theme. You can also serve your adult guest festive cocktails. Remember to also serve water and lemonade or iced tea to ensure everyone is staying hydrated in the heat.
What is a July 4th celebration without a few outdoor games? There are several outdoor games that can keep everyone active and entertained for hours, and they can help your guests to practice social distancing as needed. The games include corn hole, bean bag toss, horseshoes, and LadderBall, as well as lawn darts, lawn bowling and even croquet.
Of course, your celebrations are not complete without a fireworks display. The status of local fireworks shows is going to depend on the restrictions in your area. However, you can still find a firework show on television or a stream. Another idea is to let everyone light sparklers to make your own fun in the backyard. Once all your guests leave and everyone settles down, treat yourself to a little quiet time in your Privacy Pop Bed Tent. The double-sided zipper closure and mesh windows allow you to relax when you need a little peace after a gathering. If you take the time to prepare for your July 4th festivities, you are sure to have a good time celebrating with your loved ones.
