Top 3 must-haves for your 4th of July party

Date Created: 06/28/2011

Top 3 must-haves for your 4th of July party. The Fourth of July is this upcoming weekend, so if you haven't put the finishing touches on your party planning, there's still plenty of time left to make sure that everything is perfect for your celebration. By keeping a few of these items in mind, you will maximize your entertaining potential and ensure that your party will go on, no matter what the weather decides to do.

1. Umbrellas and Awnings. Whether you're throwing an all-day party or an evening affair, having some sun protection for your guests and weather-proofing for your grilling area is essential. Set up some umbrellas around each set of chairs that you put out and be sure to include some matching end tables. This will give your guests a retreat from the powerful July sunshine and you can decorate the underside with some colored streamers and mylar balloons. You should also have an awning handy in case you get a random thunderstorm and have to protect all of the food you're grilling.

2. Decorative lighting. Installing some lighting on your deck or patio will ensure that your party will last long into the evening. Dress up your serving table with some colorful string lights, party centerpieces and imprinted napkins that are sure to wow your guests. Put out a few citronella candles as well. This will deter bugs from joining your festivities and it will add some ambiance when the sun goes down.

3. Patriotic party supplies. Your 4th of July party is a celebration of our nation's birthday, so your venue should be adorned with plenty of red, white and blue. Put out some mini American flags at all of your picnic tables and use some patriotic party tableware to match the spirit of the occasion. A personalized banner is another wise choice that can be customized with the message of your choice and will be the highlight of your decorative scheme. Don't forget the confetti and party hats to add a whimsical touch to your festivities.

Your 4th of July party will be an unabashed success when you plan ahead and take the proper steps to make your home look fabulous. There's still plenty of time to stock up on your favorite 4th of July party supplies, so get moving to put together your unforgettable event!
