6 Reasons To Be Excited About Our 4th of July Party Checklist

1. Easy To View

Our checklist is easy to use and understand. When marking off a task after completion, it will turn green so you can distinctly see which tasks are still left to do.

2. Custom Scaling

Does it frustrate you when other checklists automatically assume that you will plan exactly to their time frame? Well, our checklist automatically scales the tasks to your own schedule. Whether you want to start planning a few months in advance or you only have a few days left, our checklist will automatically assign dates to the tasks based on the number of days you have left until the event.

3. Visual Warning for Upcoming Dates

It is easy to miss a task when you get confused about the deadlines. To prevent this, the dates on our checklist will turn yellow when they are approaching, and red when the date has passed.

4. Event Specific

All of our checklists are specific to your event. You will not find unnecessary steps as if you looked at a general event planning checklist.

5. Easy To Access/Share

Our checklist is a google sheet – easy to view, easy to use, and easy to share. No need to make an account, all you need is a Gmail account and you can start right away.

6. Task-specific Links

To help you during your planning process, we’ve included links to online applications like day planners or e-cards, potential vendors in your area, related checklists, and a respective budget sheet.


The 4th of July is such a fun day and the possibilities for food, games, and decorations are endless. With our 4th of July Checklist, you are set to have the best Independence day celebration ever. Call all your friends and family because this party is not one to miss. Enjoy the day and relax after all your hard work!
