With the 4th of July just around the corner, smart party planners are already making their reservations.

Read on to find out the best tips for planning a 4th of July Party, from your favorite party planners in Northern New Jersey!
Plan For Food
What’s a party without food, right? For your 4th of July celebration, stick with a red, white, and blue theme! Bright red and blue berries are in season right now, which means plenty of festive desserts and side dishes! Some other great ideas include beverages with a theme, classic BBQ fare, and chips. For a choco-licious snack, have Parties for Peanuts bring along a chocolate fountain!
Stay Safe—and Legal!
Many states and local jurisdictions have restrictions on fireworks. Check your local laws before buying or using fireworks, and even if they are legal, use fire safety to keep yourself and your neighbors safe! If you want to be sure you won’t be setting any fires, try an alternative form of entertainment like a bounce house, inflatable obstacle course, or carnival games that bring fun without the risk!
July is always hot, so make sure to have plenty of ways for your guests to stay cool. Always offer clean, cool water, and consider renting a dunk tank or water slide for extra fun in the sun.
If you’re close to any major city, you can see fireworks lighting up the sky at dusk on the 4th. During the day, have fun with the other joys of summer—the event staff at Parties for Peanuts is happy to work with you to come up with patriotic face painting themes, balloon animals, and we even have special characters like our “Uncle Sam” stilt-walker who would love to drop by and make your event even more exciting.
