If you’re planning to celebrate 4th of July with a party this summer, you’ll need a festive party space, great food, and plenty of planning. Here are a few tips to help you host an unforgettable 4th of July party:

Plan Ahead
One of the most vital steps to throwing a great party of any theme is plan out everything you will need in advance and complete as much as you can well before the day of the party. First, you’ll want to decide what type of venue you’d prefer for hosting your party. For indoor parties, you’ll want to be in a location where you can view the fireworks, and for outdoor parties, plan to have plenty of lighting and ways to repel the bugs from the guests and their food.

Summer Foods
Many people think of backyard barbeques when summer hits, and no time is better than the 4th of July to celebrate with all-American fare. Try keeping your food choices traditional with burgers, barbeque chicken breasts, potato and pasta salads, and plenty of snack foods. Also, consider incorporating red, white, and blue into the food’s color scheme. A chest of ice filled with red, white, and blue sodas, lemonades, and juices is visually appealing and perfect for this summer holiday. For dessert, stick with classic summer treats such as peach cobbler and cherry pie.

Festive Details
Artfully tie your party together by including a few fun and festive details into your event space. Bind up a handful of sparklers with red, white, and blue ribbons to use as placeholders at your table, or craft patriotic candles using beeswax and star-shaped cookie molds. Dip-dye your white placemats or napkins with red and blue to add character and style to your table settings.
