Making Memories During Your Fourth of July Backyard Bash

The Fourth of July holiday is one that many choose to spend with friends and family making memories. If you’re someone that enjoys hosting the annual Fourth of July backyard party, then you need to plan. You want to ensure everything goes off just as beautifully as those highly anticipated fireworks in the night sky.


When you’re out gathering ideas and making enhancements to your outdoor space, take into consideration safety, entertainment, and of course refreshments. Here are three key elements to consider when preparing your memorable party for Independence Day.

Playing Games Safely with Quality Pool Pavers

There’s no doubt that kids and adults alike are going to be running all around the pool during your party. Of course, you want everyone to have a good time, but you’ve seen people go down on slippery surfaces before. You don’t want to risk the night possibly being ruined because one of your guests gets hurt.

With beautiful, affordable, non-slick pool pavers, you can create a much safer environment for your guest and for hosting  games like Ping Pong Scramble or Shark in the Water.


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.

The Evo America flat-top grill provides an excellent surface area to whip up everything from those much-loved hot dogs to BBQ chicken, juicy steaks, burgers, and more! The convenient side burners make it possible to cook dishes like baked beans, corn, or macaroni and cheese for the kiddos without having to go inside.


Going hand in hand with the delicious food, you’ll definitely want to make sure the beverages are stocked for both the adults and the little ones. Hopefully, you have a backyard bar setup, but if you don’t, here are some of the things to consider for your party to include:

  • A built-in kegerator to keep beer ice cold
  • A mini fridge stocked with juice, water, soda, and other beverages for the kids
  • A wine fridge stocked with all your favorite spirits

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

Pergolas Are Your Staycation Solution

Don’t we all want to feel like we’re sitting in a cabana next to the pool in a fancy hotel? You can do that right at home with a built-in covered pergola. Not only does it give you and your guests some added relaxation space, but it also can shade children and adults with sensitive skin from the powerful sunrays.

If you’re worried about the summer heat getting to be too much, you can also install misters around the pergola to keep your party-goers cool and comfortable.


As long as you have the proper tools and equipment ready for your upcoming Fourth of July backyard party, you can hope actually to sit back and enjoy some of the fun too! It’s going to make your job a whole lot easier. Just wait and see.
