Getting the Grill Fired Up

A big part of Fourth of July party traditions is the food! Did you know that more hot dogs are consumed in America during the Fourth of July holiday than any other time of the year? That’s because everyone loves to grill together and enjoy the beautiful weather.

If you're looking for a hand-curated selection of the very best in outdoor cooking gear, such as Blaze grills and smokers, Solo Stove pizza ovens, or even beverage coolers to keep your crew hydrated, you'll find everything you need for fun in the sun in the System Pavers Outdoor Store.

Speaking of hydration, you’ll want to make sure you're stocked up with a variety of beverages for both adults and the little ones. You may already have the perfect backyard entertaining setup, but if you don’t, here are some of the things to consider for your party to include:

  • A stocked cooler or built-in kegerator to keep beer ice cold

  • A mini fridge filled with juice, water, soda, and other beverages for the kids

  • A wine fridge stocked with refreshing favorites

Make sure you save a little room in case people want to bring their own drinks too!

Pergolas Are Your Staycation Solution

We all want to feel like we’re sitting in a pool-side cabana in a fancy hotel, right? You can do that right at home with a built-in pergola. Not only does it give you and your guests the perfect space for relaxing, it also can shade children and adults with sensitive skin from the powerful sun rays.

If you think the summer heat may be too much, you can install fans or misters around the pergola to keep your party-goers cool and comfortable. Don't forget to liven up your yard with an assortment of classic outdoor games that'll get everyone's competitive juices flowing. By stocking up on food and fun, you'll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a Fourth of July everyone will be talking about for years to come. Best of all, you don't have to wait for a holiday to host this kind of party. Make any Saturday feel like a party by lighting up your grill and inviting friends over.
