Summer months are fun. Anyone looking to take advantage of the long days and sunshine for a birthday celebration can look for party ideas here. Here are four party ideas for summer that anyone can take advantage of to see the summer out in style. From sparklers to a boat night, from a cooking party to an outdoor picnic, everything is worth it.
One of the best things about summer is that the evenings and nights are still warm enough for you and your guests to enjoy the outdoors. A fireworks display isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, nor is it practical for many of us. However, we can all afford to crack out the sparklers, and still have enough money left over for a few bottles of champagne
Of course, you need to host the party somewhere where there is plenty of open space; you don’t want to let your sparklers near to anything too flammable.
Moreover, you can add to the party decor with DIY balloon decorating ideas as well.
Do you love to cook? How about your friends? Why not throw a party where you all work together to prepare the food? This makes a nice change from having to do all the catering on your own and will mean that you don’t have to leave your guests while you prepare the food. Often the designated chef for the evening will lose out on opportunities to rub shoulders with the other guests and meet new people.
We would recommend that you really push the boat out in terms of the kitchenware you use. You can get yourself some high-quality kitchenware without having to break the bank, as long as you know where to look. For example, check out Virginia Boys Kitchen – they make heirloom quality kitchenware, which is guaranteed to impress your guests.
There are few partying locations as well-suited to the summer climate as a boat. Whether you rent out a huge party boator you hop aboard a small vessel that is owned by you or someone you know, an evening or sunset cruise is one of the best ways of relaxing with friends that you will ever experience. If you get lucky, and you can get your boat away from the light of civilization, you will get to experience the full majesty of the night sky and see all those stars and the moon reflecting in the ocean waves.
Wine Tasting Party
If you’re anything like me then every party is a wine tasting party. But sometimes it is prudent to disguise borderline alcoholism – a wine tasting party is a perfect way of doing it. Head down to the nearest store and get yourself a number of different bottles of wine. You can turn the tasting into a game by decanting the wine into empty numbered bottles, then having your guests try different wines and try and guess which bottle is which wine. The winner gets a special bottle of wine or champagne.
Whether it’s during the day or later in the evening, a picnic with friends is a wonderful way of relaxing and catching up, especially if some of you have children who will be coming. With the warm summer evenings, you can stay outside sharing a picnic long into the evening. You could ask all of your guests to make and bring part of the meal; just remember to also delegate the booze-gathering duties to someone reliable.
A camping trip can be combined with one or more of the above party ideas for summer easily. This is another idea that is a lot of fun for children, as it also means that you can put the children to bed while the adults continue partying long into the night.
Summer is far and away the best time of year for partying and generally socializing with loved ones. The gorgeous weather and long days mean that you can party long into the night without having to worry about the cold, dark or rain. Time is running out, so what are you waiting for? Gather your friends and get ready to enjoy the above party ideas for summer!
