1. Plan The Menu
Preparing a menu for a crowd can sometimes be the hardest part of planning a party. Pick simple and easy to make dishes that don’t require a lot of attention or can be made ahead of time! Because I’m very visual, I prefer to write out what I’m making as this helps me make sure I have each category covered and to plan my grocery list!
Here are my go-to party recipes!

5. Invite The Guests
Everyone loves to feel special and invited! Create a fun graphic using PicMonkey or Canva and send it out to your guests. Not only will they love your invitation, it will also help them remember the details about your party! When they’re scrolling through their phones to remember what time they are supposed to be there, rather than getting lost in a sea of text messages, they can search for your image and be reminded!
Here’s to a perfect 4th of July party!
