3 Tips on How to Throw an Epic 4th of July Party in Your Apartment
Barbeque, pool parties, and sparklers abounding, 4th of July is almost here! How do you plan to celebrate? Are you thinking of hosting a party? If so, what kind of space will you be entertaining in? Opting to live in an apartment, for instance, can improve your life in many ways, most often, financially. However, apartment living has a few drawbacks. If you want to throw a party for a certain number of guests, you may have a difficult time finding the appropriate space for your guests. But luckily, people have gotten creative.
Here are 3 tips on how to throw a great Independence Day party this July.
Think Outside Your Apartment
The entire party doesn’t have to take place inside the apartment. For instance, guests can arrive at the apartment for food and drinks and then move to another space for the remainder of the party. For example, encourage your guests to go outside. If you have a rooftop pool or any pool at your apartment complex, these spaces are perfect to host a pool party. You can even ask your guests to bring their bikes with them and cycle all around your neighborhood. After, you can invite your guests back to your place for refreshments. They’ll need to cool down in the AC with a drink after swimming in the pool or biking around.
Use Your Balcony
Does your apartment have a good-size balcony? You can always entertain guests outside on your balcony if its roomier than your living room. Depending on the view of your apartment, you may even be able to see some fireworks, light some sparklers, and have some finger food.
There are tons of songs to sing that celebrate the 4th of July holiday. Don’t have a karaoke machine? That’s okay, you can always look up instrumentals and play them on a speaker, or you can play a playlist of your favorite American-themed songs in the background.
