Tips for Serving Appetizers
Choose the right number of patriotic appetizers based on the number of guests attending. For smaller parties, three appetizers will be enough. If you're entertaining over 10 guests, you may want to increase the number of appetizers to five.
For an outdoor celebration like the 4th of July, you're going to want to prepare more than you normally would for an indoor winter or autumn gathering. Especially if the weather is nice, people will linger long after the hamburgers and potato salad are gone, you can always start snacking again on chips and dips.
How to Plan the Perfect Patriotic Celebration
- Make sure you’ve chosen a location that is kid-friendly and even pet-friendly if guests are bring children and pets.
- Provide games! Everyone loves games such as Frisbee, hula hoops, scavenger hunts, and bubble blowing.
- If you are having young kids attending, choose activities that you know will keep the kids busy.
- I always keep a bucket of sidewalk chalk to keep kids active. Make sure an older teenager or even adult supervises so no one wanders off into the street.
