It was on July 4, 1776 that we had claimed our independence. The British left our land free and Democracy took its birth on this day, letting every American dream of a new life, filled with freedom. Since then, we have been celebrating the day with all our dear and near ones with barbecues, parties and picnics. How about forgetting all the old fashioned way of celebrating our Independence Day with fireworks, evening party and backyard picnic and come up with some new ideas?
Doubtlessly, there are lots of wonderful ideas swirling in your mind to celebrate 4th of July this year. But if you want some more, then here are some that may amazingly suite what you and your friends are looking for. What about nautical picnic?
Picnic In Beach
Picnic is always wonderful – no doubt about it. But it can be made even better amidst the expansive beach with the turquoise ocean sounding in the background, cool breeze wafting off your boredom and pleasant sun warming your face. Isn’t this enough to make July 4, 2007 ever memorable?
The best attraction for a nautical picnic is hours of enjoyment with the sea with your friends. Experience the fresh air and the boundless beauty of the expansive nature. Arrange for a friendly volleyball tournament in the beach. Celebrate the Independence Day with lots of delicious treat and drinks.
Remember that wind is the only disturbing element when it comes to nautical picnic.. it is hence advisable to put extra attention to choose a place for the day’s meal. Choose a wind-resistant place to have your meal. Choose a venue away from the water – may be behind the rocks.
While planning for a nautical picnic don’t forget to take the necessary things – especially corkscrew and a bottle opener, napkins, plastic container. Make sure that you have taken the trash bags to carry away the disposables while preparing for a nautical picnic.
Picnic On A Yacht
Just imagine spending July 4 with all your dear ones away from the land, in the midst of the endless turquoise ocean. All you have to do is to hire a yacht and board on it with all your equipments and foods. Many of the yachts do not permit cooking, while special permission may be sought if you want to cook food in yacht.
Since there will not be much modes of entertainment except for some like singing, playing guitars and dancing, cooking together with your friends and family would give you very different pleasure. Do not forget to take a small music system and some of the patriotic numbers. After all July 4 is our Independence Day and we don’t want to forget the story of the struggle that our brave brothers had done to free us from the British rule.
Picnic On A Cruise
Careful planning is the secret of success for any occasion. When it comes to celebrating 4th of July near the sea, why not explore the beauty of the sea this year by planning a picnic on a cruise. On Independence Day, set off on a romantic cruise with all your friends and lots of delicious foods and drinks.
It is a wonderful feeling to celebrate the nation’s birthday a few miles away from the shore, amidst the blue. Picnic on the cruise is the most astonishing way of spending hours with your friends – on Independence Day. Preparing for a cruise picnic should not be a daunting task, if you plan everything in advance. Lots of chips, grapes, strawberries etc. have always worked well. Wine or champagne can add special touch to the enjoyment. A good Music system, some compact discs and a camera are some of the things that should not be missed.
Ours is really a diverse nation with dynamic people. Every year we celebrate our Independence Day with lots of fun. But have we ever thought of our friends who stays away from us? Don’t forget to bring your dear ones closer by sending 4th of July heartfelt wishes through ecards on this Independence Day.
