Pergolas / July 1, 2020

What do you need for a fun and festive Independence Day in your backyard? With the right menu, a comfortable setting for the patio, and festive decor, you can create the perfect site for an enjoyable Fourth of July celebration. Commemorate America’s birthday in comfort and style with these tips for a memorable evening that shines long after the fireworks have faded.

Create a Delicious Drink Menu

Serve all-American iced tea and lemonade, or create a colorful red, white, and blue cocktail menu. Stick with classics like strawberry daquiris, pina coladas, and blue margaritas, Google drink recipes by color, or simplify things with the latest red white and blue layered cocktail.

Serve Up Family Favorites

Plan your cookout menu, including children’s favorites like hamburgers and hot dogs, alongside steak, ribs, lobster, and other sophisticated grilled dishes for adults. Don’t forget appetizers and side dishes. Prepare as much as you can in advance so you can spend more time enjoying the day with your family.

Feast on Festive Desserts

Red white and blue popsicles are always a hit with the kids. For the adults, a multilayered trifle with strawberries, blueberries, crisp shortbread cookies, and vanilla pudding makes for a light and sweet treat in the summer heat.

Mix it Up

Create an Independence Day playlist featuring a mix of fun and patriotic songs, or simplify things with the help of a music streaming service, pumping tunes onto your covered patio using wireless Bluetooth speakers.

Dress Up Your Deck

Showcase the stars and stripes, decorating your deck with a multitude of small flags, festively themed windsocks, or banners. Create your own light show with a festive American flag net light display and coordinating red, white, and blue LED patio string lights.

Party Till the Sun Don’t Shine

While away the hours until the sun goes down beneath your adjustable louvered pergola. StruXure home pergolas give you complete control over your outdoor environment, so you never have to worry about a Denver area pop up shower. Built-in rain sensors respond on-demand, closing automatically at the first detection of rain to keep you comfortable and dry. Adjust louvers manually, electrically, using solar power, or the iLouver smartphone app, letting in the ideal amount of sun or shade throughout the day.

Maximize use of your outdoor space this summer and for every season to come. Learn more about custom louvered pergola systems from Denver Pergola Systems today.

Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space More… With An Adjustable Louvered Pergola!

Do you have an under-used, uncovered patio that is either too hot when you want to use it, or gets too much rain or snow to be functional? The Adjustable Louvered Pergola System has you covered – or uncovered! Unlike a retractable awning or wooden structure with fixed slats that give partial shade, but no rain protection, this aluminum pergola system can offer full sun, partial to full shade, or shelter thanks to its ingeniously designed adjustable louvered roof system.

Repel Rain

The specially designed louvers offer full protection from the rain, interlocking when closed to provide a watertight cover with a gutter that channels rainfall exactly where you want it.
