Summer summer summer time! The warm weather is here, and vacation mode is on. It’s a great time to celebrate life, family, friends, anything worth smiling about. Summer is a great excuse to throw a party for just about anything. Want to throw a party for your dog on a Tuesday. Do it! Is your Pinterest board stacked and you are ready to vibe out in real life. Do it! Here are a few ideas to help your friends swoon over your Summer Soiree!

Pick the Perfect Outdoor Summer Party Theme

  • Summer Camp for Adults. Invite your closest pals (and their kiddos) for some old-fashioned fun with a backyard summer camp-themed party.
  • Boho Bridal or Baby Shower. Shower the mom-to-be or the bride-to-be in your life with lots of love with a boho backyard brunch.
  • Posh Picnic or High Tea Garden Party. Gather all your friends for an elaborate and sophisticated party.
  • Backyard Glamping. This backyard bash is perfect for kids who have outgrown their sleeping bags but still enjoy sleeping under the stars with friends.
  • Summer Spa Day Party. Beat the heat with a summer spa day pool party. Spend the day swapping stories and sipping smoothies while dangling your toes in the water.

Incorporate Traditional Summer Games

No matter the theme, there’s always a way to incorporate some traditional summer fun into the day or evening. Just pair wisely. 😉

Rent a dunking booth for a fun way to cool off on a hot summer day. This would go well with the Adult Summer Camp Theme. Have fun and do it for a cause. Ask your friends to volunteer and ask for donations in exchange for a chance to send someone crashing into the water. The donations can go to your charity of choice.

Cornhole, volleyball, pickleball… a small element of competition always keeps things exciting.

If it’s a family affair be sure to include sprinklers, water balloons, sidewalk chalk, and jump ropes for the kiddos.

Setup your Zones

Take into consideration the layout of your outdoor space. Create a fun welcome area in your front yard. A drink cart to get the party started, a pool pit stop with fun inflatables if you have a pool, or a choose your adventure box to lead your guests into one of your preplanned fun zones. Utilize the flat outdoor space of your backyard or even side yard and have J&J put up a tent with some tables and chairs. Throw in some café lights if it’s an evening affair. Already have outdoor seating? Perfect! Enhance it with themed décor and use it as a game table. Make it your own and completely transform your outdoor space!  

Set the Mood

Now that you have your theme, activities, and space, it’s time to pull it all together and set the tone and the mood.

Create a playlist. Make sure the tunes match the mood!

Good food! Going with the garden tea party, make sure you have your cucumber sandwiches. Adult Summer Camp? Hot dogs and burgers. You got this!

Entertainment, Dress Code, the list goes on. The details will set the mood for your successful soiree!
