Tips for Throwing a Last Minute Fourth of July Party

Last minute fourth of july party

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!

For many people, planning a party takes weeks to do. But if you don’t have weeks or if you just decided to throw your first Fourth of July bash, it is time to get planning. Let’s take a look at some tips for throwing a last minute fourth of July party.

Tap into Social Network

Social networks are everywhere these days. But for the last minute party planner, they can be a life saver. Use social media to create an invitation or simply tag some friends on Twitter or Instagram with an invite to your party. A phone call at the last minute is also a good way to invite guests who don’t have social media like your mother or grandmother.

Visit the Store

Once you have a semi-accurate head count, head to your local party supply store and pick up things you will need. For your party, you may want to consider picking up paper plates, bowls, cups, utensils, tables clothes, and assorted decorations. Try to maintain the Fourth of July theme as much as possible. Next, go to the store. When shopping for food, it is often best to go to a warehouse store to pick up as much food as possible for as little money as possible. Stick with things that are easily cooked like hotdogs and hamburgers or can be made ahead of time like salads. Keep it simple and delicious by picking up already made desserts. Once you have everything you need, it is time to head home. If your friends and family like to drink, head to the liquor store for some assorted beverages. Stick to things that are good and don’t have a lot of components to them.

Cleaning Up

While your home is already cleaned thanks to Ivete’s Cleaning Service, there are some things you should do to get your home ready for guests. Make sure all of your laundry is put away or hidden in your closet if it is dirty. On the day of your party, remember to make sure your dish washer is clear of any clean dishes. This will make clean up even easier when you don’t have to fuss with other dishes. Now that your home is ready to receive guests, it is time to party.

Throwing a last-minute Fourth of July party doesn’t have to be stressful and neither does cleaning up the mess. For more information on our after-party clean up service, call Ivete’s Cleaning Service today!
