Fourth of July is a widely celebrated holiday, but not all companies choose to close the office for the day. Whether your workplace is operating as usual on the Fourth or you’re planning to get festive before closing, these Independence Day party ideas are office-appropriate and perfect for brightening up the atmosphere for the holiday.
Decorate the Office With Patriotic Flair
If your office likes to go all out for holiday celebrations, start the festivities by decorating the workplace with red, white, and blue ornamentation. Décor like streamers, balloons, and mini American flags should be available at most party supply stores, or even your local grocery store.
Start the Day With Red, White, and Blue Treats
As the Fourth approaches, you’ll probably notice an abundance of red, white, and blue baked goods available at grocery stores and bakeries. To treat the team to a surprise on Independence Day, stock up on a variety of colorful baked goods. Donuts, cupcakes, and cookies are always a welcome sight in the break room, and they’re even better when they’re decorated to reflect the occasion. For breakfast on the lighter side, fresh fruit (like strawberries and blueberries) and yogurt are a health-conscious option.
Organize a Potluck
Instead of heading out for lunch hour, invite the team members to bring their favorite American dish. Comfort foods like barbecue, apple pie, and specialty burgers are crowd-pleasing options that are perfect for serving on the Fourth of July. Potlucks are also a great team building experience, so set up some patriotic décor and encourage the team to enjoy the holiday as a group.
Host a Game of American Trivia
The United States is a young country, but we have plenty of interesting history to discover. For an entertaining and educational break, host a game of American trivia. You can look up interesting facts online, or purchase a game online for annual use.
End the Day With a Round of Sparklers
If you have access to a safe parking lot, ending the day with sparklers is a fun way to acknowledge Independence Day. These tame fireworks are ideal for office use, as they’re quiet, inexpensive, and easy to use.
