There’s a reason why the old saying says summertime is “when the living’s easy.” It’s a time when you don’t even need an excuse to sit back, relax, and enjoy the company of those you love. It’s also the perfect time to start planning parties that will take advantage of the longer days and warmer weather. But, instead of the usual pool parties or barbeques, we encourage you to think outside of the box this year. There are so many summer party ideas that you should consider throwing this year. To help you find the perfect one for you, we listed some of our favorite ideas below. What are your favorite summer party themes?
Neighborhood Block Party
Summertime is the perfect chance for you and your neighbors to put your heads together and throw a block party. This is the ideal chance for you to cut loose, get to know your neighbors, and build some neighborhood camaraderie.
Outdoor Dinner Party
Dinner parties are typically thrown year round, but if you have the space and the outdoor furniture, you can easily transition your dinner party outside. This will involve a little bit more preparation, including researching outdoor-friendly foods and learning how to keep pests at bay, but it’ll all be worth it when you see your guests enjoying the delicious meals you’ve made in your beautiful backyard.
Ice Cream Social
Ice cream and Summer generally go hand-in-hand. And, honestly, what’s better than throwing an ice cream social when it’s hot out? Ice cream socials have been around since the 1950s and it’s for a good reason – ice cream is delicious and it’s a relatively easy party to throw. You only need to grab several pints of your favorite ice cream, gather cones and toppings, and set everything up to get the party started.
Celebrate A Different Culture with a Summer Party
If you love learning about different cultures and love hosting parties, throwing a summer party centered around Latin American culture might be a great party option for you. And no, we aren’t talking about the kind of party that involves a sombrero and a margarita machine. With this party idea, we encourage you to learn about some of the traditional foods, drinks, music, and decorations and host a party that celebrates what makes Latin American culture so rich. This will take a little bit of research on your end, but the final result will be equal parts enlightening and fun!
