One of the highlights of the summer is the 4th of July Holiday when we commemorate the Declaration of Independence of the USA.  Chances are you and your family are invited to a 4th of July Party, and you may be wondering what the etiquette for such a holiday party would be.  No worries, I got you covered with these 4 basic Fourth of July Etiquette that you need to remember.

Fourth of July Etiquette

1. RSVP:  When people go out of their way to invite you to their party, you must respond.  You CANNOT just ignore the invite and you certainly CANNOT just attend the party.

2. Bring a Gift: Since the host is “hosting” a party it appropriate to bring something that she can easily use at the party.  Meaning a box of cookies in an attractive tin that she can simply set on the table  or festive lollipops that can be also be used as a centerpiece on a side table.  The last thing the host wants is a bouquet of flowers that does not come with a vase; she has been in the kitchen all day – so unless you plan on helping her (obviously not) bring the flowers in a vase.

3. Remember, You are the Guest:  While you may think that there is a better way to set up the dessert table or grill the burgers, remember that this is not your party.  Don’t be a backseat driver.

4. Don’t overstay your welcome. While Fourth of July parties do not typically have a definitive ending time, remember that the host has been preparing all morning and is probably pretty tired.  Respect her and leave before your children get cranky!

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
