Four Tips for a Great Fourth of July!30 Jun 2017, by Fun Fridays in
Is it just us, or does it seem like this year is flying by? It’s almost time to celebrate the Fourth of July already, can you believe it? We want you to have the BEST Independence Day party in the neighborhood this year, so here are some tips to help you get ready for your family’s big bash:
1. Red, White & Blue Yard Decor. Be sure to decorate your yard with red, white, and blue. You can put up balloons, streamers, and American flags to show off your patriotic pride. Don’t forget to add lanterns or cafe lights, too. You can even keep them up throughout the remainder of the summer as you relax and enjoy those beautiful summer nights outdoors.
2. Serve patriotic food. Of course, hamburgers and hot dogs are a MUST on the Fourth of July, but don’t forget to carry the red, white, and blue theme over into your menu. Serve strawberries, blueberries, and other red-white-and-blue foods that will honor the U S of A with each delicious bite.
3. Don’t forget your camera. Capture Kodak moments with your camera as you bring out everyone’s inner child with sparklers. Remember how fun it was to dance around with them when you were younger? You’ll love doing the same thing with all the kids (and kids at heart) in your family this year.
4. Plan a neighborhood parade. Of course your town or city is going to have a parade, but why not have one of your own? Get the neighborhood families together and invite the kids to decorate bikes or go-karts. Let them go all out in their decorating and have a few friends be the judges to hand out awards at the end of the parade! Follow-up the parade with an adult dessert contest to get everyone involved in a little friendly competition. It’s always fun to bring people together and if you don’t know your neighbors that will this is the perfect opportunity to break the ice and start making memories together! And if you already know them like they’re family, it’s just another great reason to get together!
