  4. Get Festive with these 4th of July Party Essentials

    4th of July

    The 4th of July is a time for Americans to celebrate the country’s independence with poolside parties and fun-filled barbecues with family and friends. When planning your 4th of July party, don’t forget the importance of protecting guests from the blazing summer heat.

    It’s not enough to provide only seating for partygoers. Make sure to have high-quality shade on hand to shield them from the sun to allow for an ultra-comfortable atmosphere as you party the day away.

    Here are must-have shade accessories for any 4th of July party.

    The Importance of Sun Protection for Any 4th of July Party

    There’s no doubt that sitting in the scorching sunlight can put a damper on any 4th of July BBQ. But there is an even more important reason to make sure to have reliable shade when celebrating the 4th of July. The simplest way to prevent skin cancer, according to the American Cancer Society, is to stay in the shade. With skin cancer being the most common form in the United States, it’s crucial to wear sunscreen and stay out of the harmful UV rays. Experts say you’re more prone to this type of cancer if you have these risk factors:

    • Fair skin
    • History of sunburns
    • Repeat sun exposure
    • Family history
    • Weakened immune system

    Staying under a sun shade and wearing sun screen will greatly reduce your chances of skin cancer. Investing in a reliable shade solution will be well worth the money when it comes to protecting your health and your friends and family.

  8. Trick or Treat Yourself: Gifts for Hosting an Outdoor Halloween Costume Party

    Trick or Treat Yourself: Gifts for Hosting an Outdoor Halloween Costume Party

    Halloween can be one of the most fun and eventful times of the year. There’s trick-or-treating, scary ghost stories by a campfire, haunted hayrides, and of course, the costume party.

    Costume parties are a lot of fun, but they can be a drag to host. You must clean your house before guests arrive and clean it again after they leave. Also, there’s always that chance your guests will track mud, leaves, and more into your living room.

    Other than the housecleaning, a costume party is simple to plan. You just need some food, drinks, decorations, music or sound effects, party games, and maybe some goodie bags. So, if you’re concerned about your house being or becoming messy, then why don’t you just bring the costume party outdoors?

    Around Halloween, the weather can be unpredictable. But that doesn’t mean you can’t throw a successful outdoor costume party. When you’re having a party outdoor in the fall, you get to take in the whole season. In the fresh, crisp autumn air, the smells of firepits and fallen leaves just add to the atmosphere of an outdoor party.

    Halloween isn’t just about Trick or Treat, it’s about treating yourself to the items you’ll need to throw a successful costume party in your front yard or backyard. These items certainly won’t have a one-time use: you’ll be able to use them all year long, whether you’re at home, at the campground, at the beach, at the stadium, and anywhere else you want to gather.

    Protection from the Elements

    Like we said above, the weather around Halloween can be unpredictable, and it’s always good to keep your guests protected. From a pop-up canopy tent to a tailgate tent, there are several types of portable structures that can offer protection from the elements. They can give your guests some shade if it gets too hot or sunny, and they can keep them dry during the rain.

    Party Tents

    party tent is practical for many different types of outdoor gatherings, including a costume party. Like a tailgate tent or an event tent, a party tent can be the center of your outdoor party.

    A party tent lets you cover an outdoor area as small as 10x20 ft. and up to 20x30 ft. so your guests can enjoy the fresh air but stay out of the sun or rain. You can get an enclosure kit for a party tent so you can wall off parts of the tent, or the entire structure. Imagine attaching the wall panels and turning a party tent into a Halloween haunted house!

    Party tents are a great investment: purchasing one can be much more cost-effective than a rental. A party tent comes with a durable rust-resistant galvanized steel pipe frame and a heavy-duty PVC fabric cover. They can be easily assembled without tools by 2 people in just a few hours!

    Shade Canopies

    Like party tents, shade canopies are very similar and can be used to protect your costume party guests from the elements. They have waterproof polyester tops, durable powder coated steel frames, and can also come with optional enclosure panels. Generally, shade canopies have a smaller footprint than a party tent

    Shade Canopies have frames th

    Have a Safe Halloween with Fun Outdoor Family Activities

That includes several fun outdoor family activities that can be done in your backyard or your neighborhood.
