The Perfect Fourth of July Party
Hey y’all! Since the Fourth of July is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get serious about planning your perfect red, white, and blue party! Whether you’re hosting friends and family for a quiet night of barbeque and fireworks or planning the ever-anticipated neighborhood block party, IES has you covered to make sure your night goes off with a bang.
PICK YOUR DIRECTION
To get started, pick a theme for your party. Are you feeling vintage stars and stripes or a more glamorous, sparkler filled evening? Once you decide on a direction for your festivities, planning food, decorations, and activities for your explosive night will be that much easier.
Decorations certainly make a party – and can make your yearly block party an Instagram worthy evening. Paper backdrops such as classy streamers, no, not like the ones from your middle school dance, or vintage-inspired paper flag art can make a plain wall the perfect destination for a photoshoot. Decorate your table surfaces with patriotic pinwheel-filled mason jars or wrap American flag stickers around jar white jar candles for a cute, illuminated touch.
Additionally, make sure to really utilize your outdoor spaces. Have a clothes line in your backyard? Try hanging red, white, and blue bandanas over it. Small jars or pots of red and blue flowers can also tie together decorations for outdoor seating areas.
