July 4th: How to Celebrate With a Bang

by R.I. Lampus
Fourth Of July

The official holiday of summer is finally here! At Lampus, we know you can’t wait to spend your days outside. Whether it is lounging by the pool or chasing your little ones around, you are ready for the warm weather to arrive. The 4th of July is the perfect time to let your friends and family know that your patio is open for business!

DÉCOR. Independence Day is a day meant to celebrate the US of A. Colors and decorations are red, white and blue. If you want to save some money, you can DIY everything from wreaths to pinwheels. Anything American flag related is a go! So get creative and patriotic for this one!

FOOD. The 4th of July is a barbeque day and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! Hot dogs and burgers are an American tradition and what better day to cook them than today! Of course, you can grill ribs, chicken, steak, and veggies but hot dogs and hamburgers are classic. Fresh fruit is also a great way to start the season off!

DRINKS. Drinks on the 4th should match the theme! There are plenty to try that match the American theme with red, white and blue. Or you can at least have craft beers brewed in the United States. Summer beers tend to be fruity and refreshing just perfect for a hot day. Make sure to check those out!

GAMES. Outdoor games on Independence Day make us think of bocce and horseshoes. Both are very easy to set up in a yard that has a good flat area. New favorites like cornhole and Kanjam are creating a buzz for outdoor games too!  If you are lucky and the day is hot, it calls for a pool day! Pool games range all over the place so you can find one for your friends and family.  Buy that gigantic pool inflatable you’ve been eyeing up! It can be your statement piece!

MUSIC. Hits like Tom Petty’s “American Girl” and Don McLean’s “American Pie” are practically summer anthems at this point. Create a playlist featuring all of your favorite American themed songs and throw in some good summer jams while you’re at it!

Make sure your patio is the star of your event by maintaining the life of your pavers and walls. When your outdoor space looks well kept and beautiful it reflects positively on you! You want to be the host whose parties get talked about for years to come! Make a lasting impression.

Are you ready for some amazing summer parties? Start planning today!
