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 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.
