First things first, start planning your event early. This gives you plenty of time to book your favorite vendors and snag the best deals. 🎯 Whether you’re looking for a venue rental, a BBQ pit, or that perfect red, white, and blue decor, early planning is key.

2. Create a Stellar Guest List 📋

Think about who you want to invite. Are you going for a family-friendly bash or an all-out rager with your closest friends? Once you've got your list, send out those invites and give your guests plenty of time to RSVP.

5. Beverage Bonanza 🍹

How do you keep the party going? Keep the drinks flowing with a well-stocked bar. Think refreshing summer cocktails, ice-cold beers, and plenty of non-alcoholic options for the kiddos. 🍻 Instaparty’s vendors can even hook you up with a bartender to keep those drinks coming all night long!

6. Entertainment for All Ages 🎵🎶

Make sure there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Hire a local band or DJ to keep the tunes pumping, set up lawn games like cornhole and horseshoes, and have some fireworks ready to light up the night sky.
