Plan An Unforgettable Summer Soirée!
The longer days and warmer weather give us plenty of reasons to celebrate this summer. Don’t just wait ‘til the fourth of July–here are some other summer-themed soirees you can host to make the most of these wonderful months!
Adult Summer Camp. Summer camp doesn’t just have to be for kids! Indulge in your favorite activities from your childhood by organizing a Field Day for your family and friends. Tug of war, potato sack races, kickball–the list of fun (and cheap!) events you can host are endless! (You can even splurge and get a giant parachute to re-live the best day of gym class ever.) Fire up the BBQ and serve all of your summer favorites. For extra fun, create teams and make trophies for the winners, or just play for pride–regardless of what’s at stake, your guests are guaranteed to have a good time!
Dîner en Blanc. Don’t wait for this white-hot trend to hit your local city–create your own “Diner en Blanc,” or “dinner in white” where guests dress up in their best all-white outfits to enjoy a beautiful meal al fresco together. The beauty of this event is the air of mystery–people generally sign up and are given a date and time, but don’t find out the exact location or menu until the day of, or a few days prior. Send guests special invites to come to your house, a local park, or another fun local outdoor area, and tell them to dress is their finest summer whites. Visit a local thrift or antique shop and mix-and-match unique white tablecloths and dishes to give your event a whimsical feel. Want to add a little color to the mix? Create beautiful centerpieces using colorful glassware, flowers, or natural objects like shells and stones.
Backyard Glamping. There’s no better way to spend a summer night than enjoying a bonfire with friends. Step up your game with these fun and easy ideas that will make your backyard the place to be this summer! Invite friends to suggest songs to create the ultimate summer playlist–add to it throughout the season and share the link so guests can listen to the soundtrack of your wonderful memories over and over again. Impress friends by creating s’mores bar in your backyard. And for some extra fun, create a life-size jenga game that guests won’t tire from playing!
