Before the festivities start this 4th of July weekend and week, make sure your house is ready! The best way to organize your home is to contact a professional custom closet company in Birmingham to create ample storage for you. Whether that is your closet, garage, and pantry or anywhere in between, a professional can plan and design space that works for you and your needs. After you have gotten the space set up, now is the time to organize it all!
The first thing you need to do if you are planning on hosting this holiday is to figure out everything you need. If your kitchen and pantry are already organized, it won’t take long to see what you already have and what you will need. Don’t forget decorations too! Check out your garage or wherever you store holiday decorations and see what you have. Then head to the dollar store and stock up on some fun décor for your home. They are so inexpensive that you don’t have to worry if they aren’t reusable for next year.
Once you have ample storage space, everything will have a place. Make sure that everything is where it is supposed to go so that your house will be clean and ready for your upcoming guests and festivities. If you have used a professional custom closet company to organize your closets and other storage spaces, chances are they have made room for everything you own.
Make sure all the rooms in your house are clean and ready for guests. Whether you are planning for an overnight guest or not, make sure you are ready. Clean all linens and towels and make sure bathrooms have been cleaned. With a 4th of July party, you never know who is going to tie one too many on and may have to sleep over!
There is no better holiday than to have a BBQ. Chances are the festivities are going to be held outside so make you get your deck and grill ready. Hose everything down and make sure there is ample propane for the grill. You don’t want to run out of gas while you are making your delicious burgers!
If your party is going to last well into the night, make sure you have lighting for your guests outside. You don’t want bright lights in case you are going to watch fireworks from your backyard but you do want everyone to be able to see. Candles, tiki torches, and string lights are the best way to get lighting without it being too bright. It’s wonderful ambiance for a great evening!
