It’s the summer and according to pollsters, most Americans like to spend this time of the year outdoors enjoying the weather. Why not have all of those people enjoy the weather at your house?!
Throwing awesome summer parties is a right of passage in the young adult community. So, if your calendar is free, our recommendation is to start making invitations to send out and to keep reading below.
In this quick post, we’re going to step you through a handful of awesome outdoor party ideas that’ll make your summer party shine on social media!
1. Bust Out the Games
Nothing makes adults happier than having tons of fun games to play. That’s probably because in adult life, they don’t get much opportunity to do cool stuff like build puzzles or play giant Jenga.
Give people the chance to release their inner kid by setting up game stations around your party that feature fun activities.
Game stations are a great way to get people to meet strangers and to give your party’s wallflowers a way to entertain themselves.
2. Create a Cool, Self-Serve Bar
Giving adults access to alcohol is an outdoor party idea must! Since hiring a bartender can get a little pricey, we recommend creating a fun, self-serve bar that will have people snapping pictures like crazy!
For example, you could make your bar’s drink of choice champagne and have a few bottles surrounded by different fruits and juices that you can mix in.
You can also hook people up with gin, rum, vodka and other beverage faves that’ll allow them to build their own Instagram-worthy cocktails!
3. Build a Sun/Bug Protection Station
Nothing ruins a summer party quite like mosquitoes and third-degree burns. Protect your guests and your event by having an area where your visitors can grab bug spray and spray-on sunblock.
With your guest’s skin protected, they’ll be able to better enjoy your event.
4. Don’t Forget About the Kids
It’s a fact of adult life that as time goes on, more and more of your friends are going to have kids. Don’t exclude those people and lose your relationships. Instead, accommodate them!
Kids love crafts so consider having a crafts table as one of your game stations. Also, ensure that you have shaded areas where parents with small children can sit to protect their babies from high heat.
Need we say more? Once nighttime rolls around, nothing says summer finger-foods quite like s’mores.
Set up a s’mores building station complete with flavored graham crackers, a variety of chocolate candy bars and of course, multi-colored marshmallows.
Believe us when we say that your station will receive more likes than you can imagine on Instagram and in real life!
