Start the party off right with some fun outdoor games to keep your guests occupied. Cornhole, lawn tic-tac-toe, ring toss, badminton, and other games will make your party start off great and keep everyone laughing. If you’re anticipating children attending, make sure you have a few kid-appropriate games and activities on hand as well. These can be sidewalk chalk, water balloons, bubbles, or other fun ways to keep your young guests happy.
The 4th of July wouldn’t be complete without firing up the grill! To help keep your stress levels low, offer to be responsible for grilling and ask your friends to bring sides and appetizers. Be sure to ask each guest to bring a certain item so you don’t end up with five pans of baked beans! Ice cream is the perfect finish to a delicious 4th of July meal, so set up a ice cream sundae station with some sprinkles, syrups, and toppings that will thrill both adults and kids! Be sure to have plenty of cold water on hand to keep your guests cool, and a refreshing watermelon punch can be served both with or without alcohol, especially if you have younger attendees. Lemonade and iced tea are also great beverages to have on hand, and will complement any menu.
For the perfect ending to a wonderful day, plan ahead for the best fireworks viewing spots. Depending on your location, you may be able to enjoy the show from your backyard or will need to head to a different location. If you do plan to go watch the fireworks at a specific place, don’t forget bug spray, a blanket, and a few glow bracelets to keep the party going! If you or your guests are sensitive to sound, you can also pack a few sets of ear plugs so everyone can enjoy the show without be uncomfortable. Also, check with your city or town beforehand to know the policy on purchasing and setting off your own fireworks. It’s also important to know whether or not a burn ban is active in your area. Whatever you plan to do, be sure and have fun!
