Closed July 3rd / 4th of July Celebration Ideas

July 02, 2020 Tommy Lindquist

Spending time with family and friends, grilling classic American meals, and a night sky filled with colorful fireworks is what makes the 4th of July so great. It’s also the time of the year to celebrate and appreciate America’s independence. While we are closed on July 3rd in observance of the holiday, we wanted to give you our best tips in making your holiday celebration memorable:

Go Color Crazy

Although hosting may feel overwhelming, it is possible to pull off an enjoyable event. With red, white, and blue being the color theme associated with Independence Day, there’s no reason to hold back on festive decorations and tableware. Don’t forget to buy some American flags for the kiddos to wave around and enjoy. For the trendy, hip teenagers (or adults!), put together a 4th of July photobooth with fun, colorful props for a fun and creative way to show patriotism. Tag us or use #BringHomeOutside and we might just feature you on our social media pages!

Did Someone Say Pool Party?

If your family has a backyard pool, a pool party filled with fun water games and a lounging area might be the perfect, most refreshing solution in bringing people together. Once the temperature starts to drop, you can follow along with the theme and enjoy a nice, warm fire with the Cove gas fire pit table. The Cove fire pit series, along with other fire features, fits right in with a pool or spa to give you ultimate rest and relaxation. While you watch the firework display in the sky, the Cove fire pit can sit poolside and keep the whole family warm with its cozy, dazzling flames. Try not to let it distract you from the fireworks!

No pool? No problem! Set up a few yard games like cornhole, horseshoes, or ladder ball to keep your guests entertained and the party lively. Even if you don’t have a pool, you can still celebrate the fireworks with a warm fire feature. Once the sun sets and the fireworks start, gather around a Denali Brew Fire Pit Table and enjoy a cold beer. Its unique design and rustic finish will fit perfectly in your lawn or backyard entertaining space.

Hold My Beer

When it comes to the fourth, grilling is one of the best ways to celebrate the holiday. Perhaps in your family tradition, you have the same person grilling every year. Why not introduce a grilling cook-off as a unique way to enjoy some delicious food? Corral the best cooks and most ambitious dads to see who can make the best burger, chicken, or steak. Setting up a hot dog bar with various condiments is another creative way to make your meal a fun activity. The Kenwood Linear Dining Gas Fire Pit Table can host your fantastic meals while you rave over who made the best main dish. Before the competition begins, it’s important to know a popular design trend in outdoor living—custom kitchens. Designing your own kitchen with the perfect grill, amount of storage space, and a mini fridge puts on a stunning display for hosting and enjoying family meals in your outdoor room.

We hope you enjoy your 4th of July this year, and we at The Outdoor GreatRoom Company will certainly be joining in on the festivities. Whether you are watching a firework show near you or decide to spend it at home, stay safe and make memories that’ll last until for years. In observance of the holiday, our headquarters will be closed July 3, 2020.
