Fourth of July is right around the corner, and that means a time of celebrations across the nation. From coast to coast, many groups will want to get together to enjoy the weekend and holiday. You can use these simple deck party ideas for the Fourth of July and make your celebration a grand success.
Start with a Great Deck
You want to make sure your deck is in good condition before hosting a party on it. The last thing you want is to have a party on a deck that is structurally unsound. Make sure that the deck is in ideal condition, with no rotting, soft spots anywhere. It is also a good idea to clean and maintain the deck if you have not yet recently.
Provide Enough Space
Next, give enough space for all your guests to enjoy the deck comfortably. If you have a dining set on your deck, provide enough chairs and tables for everyone without overcrowding. You might provide different seating zones on your deck and backyard, depending on how many guests you have and your deck’s size.
Create a Food & Drink Zone
Of course, you will want a food and drink zone on your deck as well. Unless you are serving meals directly from your kitchen, the buffet style is easiest to carry out. Guests can file down the line along one side of the deck, staying out of the way of other areas.
Use Durable Tableware
Durable, shatterproof dining ware is one of the most practical deck party ideas you can find. It can help immensely to have drinkware, plates, bowls, and cutlery that are heavy enough to keep from flying away but sturdy enough not to break when dropped.
Include Music & Games
Music and games make parties much more fun. If you have a lot of deck parties, you can install a stereo system on your deck. Games are best for the backyard or on the deck if appropriate.
Decorate for the Fourth of July
Deck party ideas for the Fourth of July would not be complete without Fourth of July decorations! Streamers, banners, pillows, tablecloths, and even deck lights with the Fourth of July theme will make it festive. Don’t forget to have an American flag waving while you’re at it!
