Summer is finally here, which means it’s time to plan all of those fun parties that will make the season an unforgettable one that you can enjoy in the company of your friends and family. But how can you go about hosting a memorable party this summer, especially since many people will be attending several events throughout the season? Keep reading for a few helpful tips to get your planning started right.
Rent the Fun
No matter how fantastic your outdoor space is at home, it can always be made better, and you don’t have to spend money on any new permanent fixtures to accomplish your goals. Instead, you can rent the fun additions and activities that your guests will love partaking in. A really great example is water slide rentals that will be loads of fun for kids and adults and give everyone a new way to cool off, especially if you don’t have a pool in your backyard.
In addition to water slides and swimming, encourage guests to play fun games, and have the music playing so they can get up and dance or sing along with their favorite summer tunes.
Serve Refreshing, Tasty Drinks
In addition to serving the foods that you know that your guests will love indulging in, you should also focus your efforts on coming up with some fun and yummy drinks that will help keep your guests hydrated even when the weather is really hot. You can have a cooler available that is filled with wine coolers and beer, but you should go a step further and get a little more creative with the beverages that you serve at your summer event.
Transform basic beverages into centerpieces by serving them in large glass containers on the table and allowing people to get as much as they want. Get creative by doing something like taking a glass water jug, filling it with water, and infusing it with fresh summer fruits to add a twist to an otherwise bland drink. You can also make an impact by serving unique cocktail recipes in fancy glasses.
Don’t Forget to Serve Dessert
After you have set up your menu in terms of the foods that you will serve, whether you are hosting a party by day or by night, and after you have established what drinks you will serve to keep everyone’s thirst quenched, it is time to think about dessert.
When it comes to summer desserts, focus on a delicious combination of hot and cold. Grill some bananas and add them to an ice cream sundae, or have your waffle maker out so you can make ice cream sandwiches with warm, yummy waffles. And if you have a fire pit, make sure you bring in some marshmallows for roasting. All of these delicious treats will be the perfect way to begin winding down the party.
Whether you choose to go all-out and rent a water slide or you simply focus on serving really unique foods and drinks in a welcoming atmosphere, your guests are sure to want to do it all over again.
