How to Plan the Perfect 4th of July Party

Jun 14, 2016

Before you know it, summer will be in full swing. For those of us who love to barbeque, this means that the most beloved holiday of all is here: the 4th of July. This independence day, why not celebrate in style with the perfect July 4th party?

If you’re looking to have a killer fourth of July bash, read on to discover some handy party planning tips:

Get an Outdoor Dance Floor

What’s more patriotic than boogying under fireworks with your closest friends? Outdoor dance floor rentals quickly turn any 4th of July backyard party into a dancefest.

Rent a Tent For an Elegant Setting

Backyard parties might seem like a boring environment, however, the addition of a tent rental and tent accessories can quickly turn any backyard into an elegant and versatile party space. Keep the barbeque outside the tent and encourage your guests to sit down within the tent and enjoy a cocktail or two. This is especially handy during the hottest point of the day when guests will inevitably need some shade.

July 4th Party Libations

Nothing says ‘Merica like some beer and festive drinks! Make sure your guests have plenty to drink (including non-alcoholic options, too). And remember, if you’re serving alcohol, plan on two to three glasses per guest. If you’re worried, have everyone contribute a bottle of wine or six-pack of beer. Extra points if the cocktails you serve are red white and blue!

Bring Some Patriotic Bites

What’s a 4th of July party without a barbeque? The easiest way to feed a lot of guests quickly and efficiently is buffet style. And with the addition of table rentals and table linen rentals, you’ll still be able to have an elegant affair. As a tip, try to get all of your rentals, including tent rentals, from the same company, as it will be the easiest to coordinate and the most cost effective. Additionally, try to get around 200 linen napkins for every 15 people.

So there you have it! Enjoy your elegant Fourth of July bash and don’t forget to be safe!
