Friends, sun, cocktails, pools, and night outs – sounds like a perfect summer.
Summer is the best time to get together with friends and family. It transforms lousy weekends into beach days and backyard parties.
But do you want to throw that same old, lame and boring party that is only about popping out a bottle of wine with some snacks? Or do you want to do something different this time? If you chose the latter, then you’ve come to the right place.
Here are some out-of-the-box party themes for your next summer bash to impress your friends, family members, and colleagues. Take notes; they are going to come in handy in the near future.
1. Go Retro With Gatsby-inspired Lawn Party
If your friends love retro music and jazz, then a Gatsby-inspired party will definitely be the best fit for them. Ask your guests to show up in their best flapper costumes, listen to jazz from the early 20s, and that’s all.
Oh yes, you also need to serve some old-fashioned cocktails such as White Peach and Mango Sangria. And if you want to elevate the party’s charm, you can also arrange for some wine tasting trivia games and let the party take care of itself.
2. Pool Party, Obviously
It’s summer, and the pool party theme has to be on your list. But what if your home doesn’t have a pool? An impressive pool is the essence of a pool party.
So, if you have enough funds you can always get a new pool for your house to have some splashy weekends. For this, you need to contact the professionals who offer new pool construction and renovation services. The experts will fix your home with a fabulous inground or infinity-edge pool that blends in perfectly with your home’s decor and add an aesthetic appeal to it. And having a pool in the house always pays off. Think of unlimited parties and get-togethers you can have on your deck.
You can also take your pool party a notch higher by setting up a mini amusement park at your home with Slip n’ Slide for all your friends.For this, you just need to roll out some traps, spray it down, add some soap, and you are good to go. It will transport your friends to the days when all they loved being on those super fun slides. Plus, it’ll take their mind off from all the work pressure as they’ll be enjoying it to the fullest.
3. BYOB BBQ Is A Win-Win For Everyone
Let’s be honest, a fun evening with friends with loads of gossip is undoubtedly the perfect way to spend summers. It gives everyone a break from their regular routine as the only motive is to have fun.
Now, what if you add some grilled cheeseburgers and booze to it. Sounds pretty cool. Right? For this, you need to host a classic cookout or BYOB (bring your own booze) barbeque party for your friends. They get booze, and you feed them delicious grilled burgers or sandwiches- everyone wins.
You can take the party a notch higher by lighting a bonfire. Tune in to some songs with your friends, and that’s all you need to transform a dull evening into a fun one.
4. “Netflix And Chill” Outside
With the nasty virus on the loose, many people would be reluctant to go to a cinema hall to watch a movie. Your friends might not be able to fulfill their movie plans, but you might be able to do it for them. Yes, that’s right!
You just need an inflatable movie screen and pick the movie of your choice, and that’s it. Create a cozy seating arrangement, stock up on snacks and booze, and there you have it—your very personal movie theatre for your buddies.
Plus, it is the easiest party idea EVER.
5. Après Surf Theme
Again beach days might not be as normal as they used to be before 2020, but that doesn’t mean your guests can’t feel like surfers or have a beach day bash. No, you don’t have to rent an entire beach for it. You just need a theme related to it.
Ask your guests to wear vibrant jumpsuits and pair them up with tropical headpieces and make them look like they just came back from a beach. Give an impromptu gift to someone who takes the theme to the next level by wearing an actual wetsuit.
Hang some tropical decor and mix some Mai Tais, and you’re good to go. You can also club the theme with your pool party. Invest in some sand and pour a lot of it near the pool seating area. Prop up a beer pong table with jello shots or set up a tiki bar with cocktail umbrellas and let your friends have a perfect beach day they were looking forward to for such a long time.
6. Dressed Up Brunch Party
Are you planning to keep your next summer party a bit low profile, classic and elegant? If yes, then hosting a brunch party is your perfect fit. But that doesn’t have to be boring. Ask your guests to dress up like their favorite movie or any other character they love. Ask them to use costumes and props to justify the character. For instance, they can come up as warriors from their favorite TV shows with a sword and shield in their hands. Have gifts for someone who pulls off the character perfectly.
It will be just like Halloween with a twist.
Imagine having brunch with people dressed up like superheroes or other movie characters. It’s going to be really awesome. Right?
To sum it all up
Planning a perfect party is easier said than done. Coming up with something new every time is challenging. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about it for a very long time. With the theme ideas mentioned above, you can actually throw some pretty cool parties for your friends, family, and colleagues. They’ll definitely look forward to your party invites as you’ll be throwing the best ones in the group.
