It might only be March, but in a few short months, it’ll be time for that company’s July 4th party, corporate summer event, or social Independence Day celebration. If you’re in charge of event planning, these are the details you need to see. This is the ultimate guide for curating and event planning a July 4th extravagant like no other!
Stunning Summer Outing Venues
There’s no shortage of incredible outdoor event spaces and rooftop venues in New York City to consider for your Independence Day celebration. And many will offer stunning views of the fireworks displays. If you haven’t booked your space yet, start inquiring now before all the best venues are taken. Here are just a few to consider, both indoor and rooftop:
- NEBULA New York
- Bar 54
- Monarch Rooftop
- The Hudson House
- Slate Rooftop
- The Tribeca Rooftop
Independence Day Fun and Games
Introduce even more fun with Independence Day fun and games. From face painting and temporary tattoo artists to magicians and putt-putt golf, you can bring all kinds of interactive elements to your company party or summer outing. If you’re outdoors, go all in with a water balloon fight. If you’re looking for something more subdued, you can host an American history trivia or red, white, and blue bingo fun. Whatever you decide to play, just don’t forget to also plan for the prizes, too.
The Music Has to Be Top Notch
Regardless of the event or the time of year you plan a gathering, music is going to be an essential element. But if you fumble the ball with a company summer outing event or July 4th party, it can be a disastrous buzzkill. So, take the time to explore your guest list music preferences and start vetting DJs and live bands. Just don’t expect your Independence Day celebration to be a home run by just playing your iPod playlist.
Festive Food Is a Must
It’s customary to go with backyard BBQ variety menus. But you can still boost your July 4th party with more than just burgers and brats. Get interactive and fun with a fully-loaded burger or hot dog bar with all the fun ingredients needed to spruce up the experience. You can venture away from tradition too, and still have an elevated menu. Load up your buffet tables with veggies, spreads, grilled shrimp, and dips. Bring in the food trucks, street corn, or even pizza for added casual yet brilliant options.
Bring in the Celebrities
If you really want to amplify your summer party or company outing, bring in the celebrity guests and take your July 4th event to the next level. From celebrity performers to guest appearances, guests will be raving when the red carpet rolls out, and the big-name talent rolls into the party.
