Millions of Americans are gearing up to celebrate Independence Day this Saturday, so take the right measures to make sure your Fourth of July corporate bash stands out from the competition. This is one of those holidays many people look forward to all year, and following these tips and tricks to plan your Fourth of July Bash will ensure your guests will be talking about it for months to come. Tip 1: Set your menu Many Fourth of July party hosts opt for a menu composed of comfort foods and barbecue classics. This simple, but delicious, fare is sure to be a home run no matter who is on your guest list. For meats, stick to staples, such as burgers, hot dogs, ribs, and even steaks if you feel like splurging on your friends and family. Side dishes, such as potato salad, macaroni salad, corn on the cob, and a green salad will complement the main courses nicely. Tip 2: Don’t forget the libations Depending on the length of your guest list, the price of drinks (especially alcohol) is where costs really start to add up. Because the Fourth of July this year falls on a Saturday, chances are people will be more likely to cut loose and polish off a few cold ones. If you anticipate a thirsty crowd, consider purchasing a half keg rather than cases of beer to cut costs. Just make sure to balance the drink menu out with plenty of nonalcoholic beverages, and take care that everyone has a way to get home safely. Tip 3: Keep them entertained One of the best ways to celebrate the old Red, White, And Blue, and keep your guests entertained is with a wide array of backyard games. Classics include corn hole, ladder ball, bocce, wiffle ball, and croquet. Meanwhile, with a little innovation and the right supplies, games like Polish horseshoes and stump, are taking the backyard circuit by storm. Tip 4: Take the party elsewhere Now, this one really depends on where you live. Because the Fourth of July is recognized on both a state and federal level, countless communities plan events around it. Whether it’s a fireworks show or a parade, you and your guests might want to get away for a bit for some off-site entertainment.
