Invite all your friends, family, and neighbors for a day fo fun and food at your house this Independence Day. Celebrate summer and America’s birthday by throwing the ultimate 4th of July celebration. Here are few tips to make sure your bash is memorable long after the last firework.


Create Your Guest List and Send Out Invitations

Send out your invites via text, email, or mail. Be sure to include the location and time of your party along with any specific instructions like “bring a bathing suit” or “BYOB”. 


Serve Delicious Drinks 

Serve an assortment of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks and cocktails in a variety of punchbowls or pitchers. Some perfect all-American beverages to consider are iced tea, lemonade, and sangria.


Create A Patriotic Playlist

Create a mix of party and patriotic songs to create a festive atmosphere at your celebration or use one from a music streaming service. Pump the tunes into your space with wireless Bluetooth speakers.


Be Prepared to Cook for a Crowd

When planning your cookout menu, consider everyone’s tastes and remember that you will be cooking for a crowd. Feed kids first with simple food like hamburgers and hot dogs, then prepare any specialty grilled dishes for the adults. Be sure to have plenty of appetizers and side dishes to snack on throughout the party. Prepare as much as you can in advance so you can focus on hosting and enjoying your party.


Set Up Your Party Under an Arcadia

Invite your friends over to celebrate our nation’s independence under your new Arcadia louvered roofing system. With complete control over your outdoor environment, you won’t have to worry about an unexpected pop-up shower. Sensors will automatically close the louvers at the first detection of rain and the built in gutter system will channel the water away from you and your guests. You can adjust your louvers manually, electrically, or by solar power, to control exactly how much sunshine or shade you prefer throughout your party. If you don’t want to miss a minute of the action, you don’t even have to move from your seat. You can use a smartphone app! We strive to continue updating our products and want to change the way people enjoy their outdoor spaces throughout the year. Our ‘smart roofs’ continue to evolve and provide an adjustable atmosphere of sun, shade, and shelter for your outdoor living needs. Contact us today to get started customizing the perfect louvered roof so you can maximize the use of your outdoor space this summer and for all the seasons to come!
