After Christmas, the 4th of July is the most celebrated holiday in the United States. We cannot help but express our pride in being Americans. Compared to other holidays we wrote about; 4th of July pool parties are the easiest to organize. Just make everything red, white, and blue.
Before the Party
Check Filters and Equipment
We cannot stress enough the importance of keeping your pool clean and in order. The more people you have in your pool, the more important the filter and water pump are working correctly. Do not forget to test the water’s chemical balance, remove any debris in the pool, and run the automatic pool vacuum. Don’t forget to take some time to clean the filter cartridges.
Trim the Grass, Trees, and Hedges
You may want to give your lawn, trees, and hedges a quick trim. It also can not hurt to water your flowers and other plants, so they look nice and beautiful for your 4th of July pool party.
Are You Planning a Barbecue?
We recently blogged about how to clean your gas or charcoal grill. Cleaning is effortless. If you plan to barbecue on the 4th of July, think about how much better your steaks, burgers, and ribs taste on a clean grill.
Cleaning Outdoor Furniture
It is essential that your relatives and guests feel comfortable and have a place to sit. It’s always good to have enough space to sit and relax. A quick spray on the cushions of the garden furniture will help get rid of any dust or pollen.
Decorating the Swimming Pool
Floats and rings in red, white, and blue are very useful for decorating your pool. They are also great for games. In addition to the floats, use your automatic LED lighting if you plan a party in the evening. Finally, red, white, and blue balloons are not expensive and add a great touch.
If you plan to offer food buffet style, decorate your table with a great 4th of July tablecloth. Party stores offer everything for the occasion, including cups, paper plates, and paper napkins that will give your table a great look.
If there’s one thing that always goes well is the party favors. Prepare a pack of sparklers in a red, white, and blue package available at your local party supply store.
