Party Prep For The Fourth Of July

Preparation will help you make the most of your Fourth of July parties celebrated on a Trex deck.

Whether you’re celebrating Independence Day with a backyard BBQ or hosting an after-dark fireworks viewing party, make the most of the holiday with the perfect preparations. Here are our tips for your outdoor patriotic party:

  • Get More from Your Decor – Dress up your deck with simple DIY Fourth of July decorations. From festive flowers to flying flags, your décor will add an extra patriotic punch to your party. We love these easy centerpieces and hanging lanterns (perfect for accessorizing a pergola). To find something that can keep your outdoor space looking festive all summer long, pick up some cute throws or pillows that are bright and colorful to make the whole space pop!
  • Maximize Mobility Create a buffet of easily edible appetizers and finger foods so friends and family can move around and mingle. We love these fourth-of-July-themed fruit kabobs – guests can grab them and go! Don’t forget the beverages – offer a variety in ice-filled tubs so guests may serve themselves.
  • Light the Night Enjoy outdoor living long after the sun goes down with ambient candles for the perfect mood and subtle lighting. For a more permanent solution, our new easy-to-install landscape lighting designs will make for sophisticated, understated silhouettes under the fireworks.
