With the Fourth of July around the corner, there is little doubt that you are making plans to spend the day with friends and family. The best Fourth of July celebrations features great food, sparkling fireworks, plenty of activities and games for the kids, a pool or some way to beat the summer heat, and lots of cold beverages.
The Rob’s Family BBQ team is particularly well-versed when it comes to these fun, festive celebrations. Here are some things to consider when you are planning and throwing the ultimate Fourth of July event.
Consider the Theme
The Fourth of July is the ultimate patriotic holiday for Americans everywhere, and now is the time to go crazy with the all-American, patriotic theme! Think red, white, and blue everywhere, from decorations and tableware to balloons, attire, invitations, and even custom color fireworks and sparklers to wave. You can go full-tilt nostalgic with flags, garlands, and classic balloons in a trio of colors, or you can get into the celebration with a new take on “Americana”. Perhaps you want to celebrate certain national landmarks or a specific type of regional cuisine. (May we humbly suggest some old fashioned, homestyle BBQ?)
Think About the Kids
If you have families who plan to attend, you will need to plan some coordinated activities for children. If you have pool access, designate someone to keep watch and invest in some inexpensive summer-themed pool floats, water cannons, and water balloons. If you are hosting your event in a park or a backyard, you might consider a classic slip and slide, or rent a cotton candy machine or an inflatable bounce house. A bucket of soap for bubbles or bright sidewalk chalk can entertain even the wildest of toddlers. Even though children require a bit of extra planning, there is no doubt that they bring fun and life to any occasion. Create a memorable experience for guests of all ages.
Have a Plan for Bad Weather
Here in South Florida, the skies can go from vibrant blue to cloudy and grey in a matter of moments. Be prepared for any weather disaster with a tent covering or awning, a park shelter nearby, or a covered patio. Having shade is important if the weather is good, too. The blazing Florida sun can wreak havoc on guests, so have an option for people who want to take a break from the heat and sit in the shade for a bit. Have plenty of cold drinks on hand, including ice cold water, for anyone who may need refreshment.
