It’s officially summertime, which means the 4th of July is right around the corner. If you’re planning a pool party for Independence Day, here are some tips for the perfect celebration:
First things first, make sure you have all the essentials. It’s important that your pool party is safe, so be sure to have sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and a first aid kit on hand. If your party is going to last into the night, you also want your yard to be well lit when the sun goes down. You additionally want to have a shade structure, bug repellent, extra towels, and music on hand.
Serving food at your pool party? If you are, you need shatterproof dishware. Many people are barefoot at a pool party, and a broken plate or cup can leave glass shards on the ground. To prevent accidents, opt for paper or plastic dishes and utensils.
You can count on the 4th of July being a hot day. To beat the heat, serve refreshing food at your cookout. Fruit salad is always a great option. Chips and hummus and cut-up vegetables are also safe and tasty foods to serve in the heat. Don’t forget to provide plenty of water to keep your guests hydrated as well.
Consider building an outdoor kitchen in your yard if you don’t have one already. Hosting an Independence Day party requires serving your guests food and beverages. You don’t want to spend your entire time inside while your guests play in the pool. With an outdoor kitchen, you can prepare food and keep beverages cool with a built-in grill, fridge, storage drawers, meal-prep counters, and so on.
