4th of July Party Ideas for a Backyard Celebration!

Greetings, America!

It won’t be long now before family and friends from all walks of life will be celebrating the good ol’ U.S. of A. This year promises to be an interesting one in certain areas due to lock-down concerns and get-together limitations, but we know that Americans will find a way!

If you’re running short on 4th of July party ideas, don’t worry – we gotcha covered! Between backyard party rentals and a few things you can scrounge up at the store or from home, you’ll have plenty of ways to make this year special.

Red, White, and Blue Decorations

Let’s start with the obvious. You can’t have a backyard 4th of July party without plenty of red, white, and blue everywhere you look. Department stores, grocery stores, and convenience stores will be filled with all types of decorations such as plates, hats, tablecloths, and U.S. flags. You can also pick up some patriotic pinwheels, kazoos, and other items for the kids.

Celebrate with Fireworks

Although explosive fireworks are illegal in Florida, you definitely have some cool options. The state allows the sale and use of fireworks that are non-aerial and non-explosive. These include items such as sparklers, fountains, snappers, and those bottle-shaped contraptions that explode with confetti when you yank on them. While this might not be as exciting as firecrackers and bottle rockets, they’re definitely a lot of fun and a great way to celebrate.
Improve Comfort with Tents

If you’re considering the use of backyard party rentals for your Independence Day celebration, you should definitely start by ordering a few tents. No matter what time of year it is, Tampa tent rentals are extremely popular because they shield guests from the elements. Since it’s summer, you may want to add some misters and/or fans to the tents to help everyone stay cool throughout the party. Hire a professional event company and they’ll put up the elaborate tents for you.

Have the Party Catered

You can go one of two routes here. First, you can have your 4th of July party catered by a company that supplies the food or you can rent catering equipment from a business that deals in event rental equipment. Since traditional foods like hamburgers, hot dogs, and potato chips are likely on the menu, the better choice would be the latter one. You can even use waiting trays to deliver the food throughout the party.

Keep the Kids Entertained

Between the time everyone finishes eating and the time when the fireworks begin off in the distance, there’s a good chance that kids at your party may get a little bored. No reason to panic, though. You can rent fun things for them to do such as a bounce house, giant checkers, giant Yahtzee, giant Jenga, and other unique activities. This will keep them entertained while the adults talk and relax.

Traditional Concessions

Speaking of kids, they’ll absolutely love the hamburgers and hotdogs, but you can get them really excited with a little something extra. Concessions such as popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones are all traditionally American treats that fit perfectly with the 4th of July. Many people don’t realize that the equipment for all these concessions can be provided by an event rental company at a low cost.
