Celebrate the Fourth on Your Outdoor Living Space
There’s nothing like a Fourth of July extravaganza hosted on your Fiberon outdoor living space: hotdogs blackening on the grill, a beer or lemonade glass sweating on the table, your friends and family watching the roman candles and sparklers light up the night.
Hey, the day off work isn’t so bad either.
With an opportunity for celebration right in your near future, Fiberon wants to help you squeeze the most joy, excitement, and relaxation out of your Fourth of July holiday.
Check out these deck time/fun time strategies we’ve come up with to help you celebrate patriotism, family, friends, and the good life.
Be Patriotic on Your Deck
You don’t have to dress up like George Washington (it’s too hot for that J). But you can celebrate your love of country in a number of ways. From food to decoration, show your love of the Stars and Stripes with a flag cake made with strawberries, blueberries, and white icing.
Or string up some red, white, and blue lights around your railing. If you’re feeling especially festive, stick some sparkler candles in a cake to celebrate the country’s birthday.
No matter what you do to show off your patriotism, the best way to celebrate is with the people you care about most. Speaking of which…
Celebrate with Safety
When it comes to the Fourth of July, your friends and family will enjoy the “bombs bursting in air.” But if you’re performing your own fireworks display, be sure to take the proper precautions.
Sure fireworks are colorful and fun, but don’t forget you’re still handling explosives. Many of the safety precautions are common sense, but when you factor kids and pets into the equation, you’ll want to keep a close eye on things. That said…
- Keep pets inside: For our canine friends especially, loud booms create anxiety. Keep them inside to induce calm feelings, and in doing so, you’ll make certain that Fido doesn’t run in front of the fireworks display.
- Handle the big stuff yourself: Nothing wrong with your kiddo handling a sparkler; just make sure she doesn’t point it toward her face or at anyone else. When it comes to the shower sparks and the fireworks that explode midair, it’s best to let the adults light the fuse.
No Matter How You Celebrate, Make the Fourth an Event
No one likes to party alone. So when the Fourth rolls around, why not invite neighborhood friends, relatives, and others to your composite decking get-together?
One way to be patriotic, we think, is to form relationships with people, and show kindness. Opportunity and partnerships, that’s what America is all about, right? When you host a Fourth party on your deck, you’re showing people that the idea of community is alive and well.
When night falls over your outdoor living space, and the sky lights up in an array of colors, you’ll enjoy the look of awe on everyone’s face.
