How To Throw The Best Fourth of July Party

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and it’s time to start planning the festivities!

While adults and kids alike are looking forward to backyard barbeques, fireworks, and spending time by the pool, the host of the party is usually met with one question – how do you throw the best Independence Day party?

Never fear – here at Gametruck Charlotte, we’ve made a quick guide to help you host a Fourth of July party the neighbors will be talking about for the rest of the year!


You say party; we say FOOD!

Food is the guest of honor at almost any party, and you’ll be pleased to hear that the Fourth of July doesn’t require any fancy meals. Your guests will be more than happy with the traditional barbeque featuring hot-dogs and burgers. If you’re adventurous and want to add a little twist to the favorites, check this recipe out for a fun take on the classic hot-dog or explore vegetarian and vegan alternatives!

Another way to make sure guests don’t run out of yummy treats during the party is to ask guests to bring snack foods and desserts. It’s a great way to strike up a friendship with a neighbor you just haven’t gotten the chance to talk to (while saving a bit of money as well).


What’s a party without some decorations?

The decorations are what sets the tone of the party, and they’re the first thing guests will notice when they arrive. So it’s important to stay on theme, but also keep things simple. Visit your local dollar store for affordable decorations – anything works as long as it’s red, white, blue, or sparkly!

And here’s a pro tip: white plastic cutlery and paper plates and napkins tend to cost less than blue or red ones. Your wallet will thank you, I promise.


Now the million dollar question: how do you keep everyone entertained until the fireworks start?

It’s not as hard as it looks! Set aside an area in the yard for some outdoor sports and games, like volleyball, frisbee, and bean bag tossing. If you want to keep guests of all ages happy, book GameTruck Charlotte and guarantee that everyone has so much fun, they won’t even notice the time passing!

No matter what you do, remember to stay safe by providing sunscreen and insect repellent, and by keeping an eye on adults that are drinking. The important thing is that everyone’s going to have a blast just by spending time together.
