4th of July parties are an American tradition. We spend time with our friends and family, honoring our country’s history with fireworks, food, and celebrations. Planning those parties, though, can be easier said than done. Here, we list out some of our favorite 4th of July party planning tips so you can throw the bash of the year.

Keep an eye on the weather4th of july snacks with american flags on table

Many people want to have their 4th of July parties outside—and for good reason! But no one wants to be sitting outside if it’s brutally hot or raining. In the week before, keep an eye on the weather to see what it might be like the day of your party. If there is even the slightest chance of rain or uncomfortable weather, make plans to host your party inside.

Have patriotic decorations

A good party always has good decorations. Since it’s the 4th, those decorations should be every bit red, white, and blue. And you don’t have to break the bank to do it. You can get 4th of July-themed plates, tablecloths, napkins, and more for relatively cheap at your local Dollar Store.

Provide plenty of games and entertainment

Some people may just want to sit and relax, but others will want to stay moving, especially the kids! Make sure you have plenty of things to entertain your guests. Cornhole, baseball, football, and basketball are all classic games that people of all ages will enjoy. Plus, don’t forget to top things off with a firework’s show at the end of the night!

Provide the classic foods, but also switch it up

At a 4th of July party, everyone expects to have hot dogs, hamburgers, pasta salad, chips, and other classics. But don’t be afraid to mix things up a bit! Cupcakes with red, white, and blue frosting will delight your guests’ sweet tooths, while cocktails will help people to have fun and relax. Plus, pretzels are always a great snack to have, no matter the time of year!
