3 Fun Summer Party Ideas:
Plan a summer camp-inspired party in your backyard:
If you are lucky enough to have a decent-sized backyard, why not plan a summer camp-inspired party. As an example, you may want to roast smores or sausages over a small fire pit. If you’re keen on this idea, you can purchase fire pits or metal braziers from your local hardware store, or your closest home and living store. Another way to evoke the atmosphere of a summer camp is to split into teams and to take part in fun challenges such as three-legged races and egg and spoon races and to award one team the title of victors at the end of the night.
Also, make sure to decorate your backyard or deck with campground-themed signs. For example, you could hand-make signs pointing to cabins such as the bear cabin and the raccoon cabin. As many camps, especially children’s camps have cabins that are named after wildlife. It’s a great idea to set up a tent or two in your back yard too and to place a few outdoor lounge chairs around your lounge to act as additional seating.
An international potluck dinner:
One summer party that is simple to organize is an international potluck dinner. For example, you may want to assign different countries to each guest and to have them bring a plate of food from that country to your party. Just make sure that each guest is comfortable with making or purchasing food to suit the country that they are assigned as you should be flexible when it comes to assigning countries. As an example, if you know that one of your friends makes mouth-watering empanadas, you may want to assign them Argentina as their country instead of India.
When your guests arrive at your party, place a small flag of their country next to their plate and place everyone’s plates on a long, communal dining table. To add a party vibe to your dinner event, create a fun international playlist on Spotify that features music from all of the countries that are represented at your event.
A Vegas-inspired pool party:
Regardless of whether or not you’ve ever been to Las Vegas if you love the idea of organizing a pool party, it’s a great way to make it Vegas-themed. For example, you may want to place plastic flamingos around your backyard, so that it has the vibe of one of the oldest casinos and resorts in Las Vegas, the Tropicana. You may also want to set up different tables around your backyard which offer different casino games like a poker table and a roulette table. Although you may want to give your guests fake chocolate coins which they can bet with and win, instead of real cash.
So if you’re ready to start making the most of your warm summer nights, it’s a great idea to start planning your first themed summer party of the season by using the ideas listed above.
