There’s nothing like having a good cookout in the summer with family and friends from the neighborhood. A simple summer celebration can turn into the best summer bash in no time with a few additions like special activities and the best food. Do a little research to see what others in the neighborhood are doing so that you don’t copy anyone, making your bash completely unique.
Here are 4 Summer Party Ideas To Make Your Bash A Hit!
Light It Up
Your backyard bash can sparkle in the evening with a few sparklers and fireworks. Make sure that the fireworks that you use are legal in your state. Also, you can put glow sticks in clear jars to light up the tables, giving a fun glow to the evening. Let guests bring their favorite fireworks to set off so that everyone can join in on the fun.
You want to have plenty of games for your guests. Find games that are fun for adults and games that children can play as well. Offer prizes for the winners, such as a gift card to a restaurant or even money. If guests enjoy the time at your bash, they will want to come back in the future, which means you’ll have new friends at every turn. Hula hoops and bubbles also work along with sidewalk chalk so that you can remember the event.
Make a Splash
If you don’t already have one for your yard, get a pool, like those that The Pool Store has, for people to enjoy at your bash. It can be something simple like the inflatable pools that are four-feet high. As long as you offer a way for guests to get cool, then they will usually be very grateful. Have a few pool toys and floats, especially for the younger crowd as they enjoy doing things other than just swimming in circles. Set up a smaller pool for toddlers so that they can enjoy the time as well and you don’t have to worry about them so much.
Feed the Belly
No summer party is complete without delicious food. If you want to save a little money, then ask others to bring their favorite dishes. Offer a balance of traditional foods, like burgers and hot dogs, along with a few new items, like this tropical pineapple dip or bratwurst on the grill. Kale chips are an idea if you want a side item that is healthy but fun to eat.
Your summer party will be one to remember if you pay attention to detail. Provide entertainment in various forms, such as games and music. Also, don’t forget the decorations as you don’t want a simple party with nothing to look at but grass and tables. With these 4 summer party ideas your friends and family will have a great time!
