Whether you chose to host a barbecue, a friendly potluck, or a romantic dinner for two, celebrating the Fourth of July can be incredibly fun and memorable for you and your guests. This is especially true if you’re able to pull out all the stops in creating the perfect patriotic party.
Putting themed decorations on display and adding to the atmosphere with a Fourth of July playlist will definitely liven up your living areas and get your guests in a festive mood.
Star-Spangled Interiors: Nothing says Fourth of July festivity better than having patriotic party decorations in every room. From paper wreaths to banners to streamers, there are plenty of decorations you can pick out from your local supplies stores for your living room, dining room, and outdoor areas this coming Independence Day.
To make things more interesting and to add a personal touch to the décor, have the kids help with a DIY décor project. This will make sure they have something to be proud of when the guests arrive – instant conversation pieces that they made themselves.
Just the Right Mix: A party can’t leave a lasting impression without the right playlist to set the mood and keep people entertained. However, not just any playlist will do; try to put together an All-American Fourth of July mix.
Of course, your track choices should depend on your guests. You don’t have to play a collection of classic Americana tunes for a party of teens and young adults.
Adapt to your guests’ collective preferences and choose songs they can relate to while at the same time channel that spirit of American pride. For example, instead of Old 97′s “Doreen”, you can play Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA” and other similar songs if your guests are much younger.
These are just some ideas you can use to can make your home ready for a rocking Fourth of July celebration. If you have more to add, feel free to leave a comment – we’d love to hear from you!
