Fourth of July is a special occasion, but it is also a day that many people plan for and celebrate with all kinds of foods, games, and drinks. You should be able to make your Fourth of July a little bit more special if you prepare your food early. The most popular food items on this day are chicken fingers, hot dogs, and hamburgers. Other popular foods include popcorn, ice cream, ice tea, and chocolate.
1. No party area is TOO SMALL for some basic food stations
If you’re looking for a way to kick off the party, you can have food stations set up where guests can mingle. Games will help you get the kids involved in making their own party favors out of chocolate, candy, or trinkets. You can have games for the younger guests, and you may even want to have birthday cakes made for everyone else.
2. DON’T USE the nice dishes!
Food isn’t the only thing you can purchase for your Fourth of July party. Since so many people are going to be drinking out of cups and plates, it’s a good idea to have disposable cups and plates that you can use on the table. If you make the food, it will be easier to carry everything around to the various tables.
3. Colors matter!
It’s a good idea to make sure you have plenty of plastic utensils and plates available. You may even want to bring along multiple colors so that you can coordinate with the colors of the food. Putting each food item together yourself will save you time and energy and will also make the food look much better if you have someone helping you.
4. Don’t lose sight of WHY you’re doing this!
The main thing you want to remember when planning your Fourth of July party is that it has to be fun! So many people seem to forget this and end up bored and grumpy. Being creative and being flexible is the key to being successful at any party. The only way to be truly successful is to be comfortable with improvisation.
5. Forget certain fears (many of them will just turn out to be irrelevant)
Making sure that everyone involved is comfortable with what you are doing and how you are doing it will help keep everyone’s spirits high. Thegood news is that you don’t have to worry about how long your party is going to take. Once people get there, time will just be flying by, because everybody will be having memorable holiday fun.
