How to Put Together a Luxurious Last Minute Fourth of July Party
For anyone that is used to the finer things in life, parties can be lavishly extravagant affairs, particularly when celebrating freedom in the nation that made it all possible. A Fourth of July should be resplendent, loaded with fun activities, delicious food and, of course, extravagant fireworks. However, planning a party last minute can be a difficult endeavor, particularly if you are trying to plan it last minute. In order to put together a perfect last minute party for the Fourth of July, you need a plan. Think of this as your how-to guide for making the perfectly luxurious last minute party for Fourth of July festivities.
Cook Up a Feast Fit for a King
Since a Fourth of July party is one of the more common summer party ideas, a luxurious party needs to have luxurious cuisine. Make a feast that is fit for a king by taking to the grill. If you have a backyard kitchen, that is the perfect place to grill up your delectable Fourth foods. Be sure to have a wide range of great meat options so that there is something for everyone, but stick to high-quality meats. Steaks are sure to make guests feel that they are at a truly luxurious party, making them a great choice for the party host that wants to go all out.
Also remember to include some great veggie items since there will probably be guests that don’t eat meat. Grilled veggies are sure to please vegetarians and meat eaters alike, but be sure to choose fresh (and preferably organic) and flavorful veggies that will taste amazing after grilling.
However, the best part of throwing a luxury party is taking part in the excitement yourself, which is why it’s important not to let the cooking keep you from celebrating. Don’t be afraid to do the backyard grilling in advance so you aren’t overwhelmed with food requests. Prep some of the foods in anticipation of guests arriving, and feel free to cook extra food in advance as well. Once you have a stockpile of incredible food, simply warm them with a heat lamp or a similar solution so that the food will still taste as if it’s fresh off the grill.
Keep the Festivities Colorful
Few holiday need festive decorations quite like the Fourth, so don’t skimp on making your home look the part for your luxurious Fourth of July party. Avoid the cheap paper decorations such as streamers since that will make the party atmosphere seem typical and mundane.
Instead, consider opting for decorations that are made of fine cloth that is stylish and trendy while also fitting the holiday’s theme. Stick to the theme in all facets of the last minute planning, from the silverware to the tablecloths and napkins. Of course, you don’t have the time to shop for all of this yourself when the party is being planned on short notice, but you can certainly hire some professionals to handle the decorating tasks.
Professional catering companies will be able to decorate your party atmosphere with stylish flair that puts your party a few notches above the ordinary Fourth of July party. When time is short but you still need to decorate in style, professional companies are the safest way to ensure that your Fourth of the July party is a visual delight.
No Party Is Complete Without Music
Every party needs some great music that fits the mood and ambiance of the festivities, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to the usual music options. While many opt for a live DJ, you can have a better music atmosphere by sticking with a trusty iPod or iPhone. Whatever music player you use, make sure to have plenty of party jams and seek out a nearby business that rents sound systems.
You will be able to provide sound that brings any party to life, and opting for a high-end sound system is sure to blow any DJ out of the water. For a luxurious Fourth of July party, there really is no other option if you want to provide music that will really get your guests in the party mood.
Finish the Party in Style with Some Fireworks
No party is complete without fireworks, but your home might not be the perfect venue to shoot fireworks or watch them. There is no need to stay at the house if a fireworks show is only a short drive away. If there is a large fireworks show in your area, wow your guests by renting a limo bus or party service that will take your guests to see the fireworks in style. This way, your guests don’t have to worry about driving since that could get in the way of the luxurious party atmosphere.
After the fireworks show has ended, it’s up to you to decide whether to take the party bus back to your home to keep the party going! Either way, you can head back to your home knowing that you just pulled off a stylish, memorable and successful Fourth of July party on last minute notice.
