Summertime won’t be bummertime when you’re throwing rad parties. The season is upon us, and longer nights, warmer evenings, and good vibes in the air means we’ve reached the optimal party atmosphere. Don’t even stress about planning the shindig of the summer – we have you covered. You’re about to go down in hostess history cause everything you need for a great summer party is right here. We even already chose a theme for your summer party: Awesome. Your party is Awesome themed.. or at least it will be when you follow the tips below:
Get your space in order: Set the mood with pretty lighting by hanging lanterns and twinkling lights both inside and outside of your party palace. For guests hanging out outside, lay blankets and throw pillows for casual outdoor seating with a perfectly chill vibe. Make sure there’s plenty of chairs and couch space for those hanging inside, but don’t forget to leave room for a dance floor! To minimize clean-up, set up some extra trash and recyclable cans around so you can have an extra lazy post-party day.
Get your refreshments in order: We love food, so of course it wouldn’t be a party without some major snack action happening. Keep the menu limited to finger foods and yummy spreads. Party favorite veggies and dip, chips and salsa, and sweet treats (s’mores, anyone?) are always guaranteed to please. We also love mixing it up with a plate stacked with cheesy mozzarella sticks, stuffed mushrooms, and mini quiches or tartlets. Yeah, we fancy.
Get your threads in order: It’s a fact that when you look good, you feel good. Since the summer sun has turned up the heat, we love backless pieces paired with statement jewelry and dance-ready shoes when it comes to party style and don’t forget to scope out our tips for keeping your hair in check during summer. Is your closet leaving you uninspired? Don’t worry girl, we’ve got a selection of party duds to keep you feeling like the belle of your brutally awesome ball all night long.
Get your tunes in order: An absolute party necessity is some tuneage. We love using Spotify or Soundcloud to create a playlist packed with our favorite songs. Make sure you have plenty of danceworthy jams along with some smooth songs when you want the vibe to be more mellow. Once you’re done playing DJ, you can stream your playlist or if you have all your songs at hand, burn a mix CD. Need help crafting the ultimate party playlist?
