Summer Party Theme Cheat Sheet
First before you break out the decorations, schedule an appointment to get your property treated for flea and tick. Prevention is one of the best approaches to take to ensure insects don’t ruin your party.
If you plan on hosting a lot of get togethers this summer, investing in permanent accent lighting can allow you to set the mood in the flick of a switch. If you’re looking to have good looking and high-functioning outdoor lighting, I would recommend Kichler. With lots of options for every budget, you party is going to shine a little brighter.
Summer Party Themes
While New Jersey may feel like the Sahara some summers, we are a little far from an oasis. Hang ten and turn your backyard into a tropical oasis. Colors like lime green, sky blue, and pale pink can give you the hint of the tropics while still on the east coast. Make your famous yogurt dip but serve it in a hollowed out pineapple. Don’t forget the little umbrellas to decorate the piña coladas. Leis are simple party favors that can help you feel the breeze off the ocean. Wow your friends with this simple recipe for watermelon and feta bites.
Perfect for Memorial Day, Labor Day, and 4th of July an all-American party can show your pride for the USA with a backyard BBQ. By simply adding gingham tablecloths with white and blue balloons, your party is off to the right start. If your budget allows hand out tiny American flags to your guests as party favors. Make it a potluck so everyone can share their favorite America inspired dish. Break out the horseshoes, corn hole, and baseballs to toss around to help keep the kids entertained and help you remember easier summers past.
Jersey boasts some of the best beaches and an old fashioned clambake can truly remind me of wonderful summer memories. You can achieve an easy nautical themed with hints of blue and white with napkins, tablecloths, and plates. Make it a family event and have the kids make anchors and pictures of the ocean that you can hang up. If there is a pool in your backyard have a sailing event on the open waters and award the winner by letting them eat first. Don’t forget the clams, lobster, and corn on the cob because what is a clambake without clams?
Don’t leave your fur-ever friend in the doghouse this summer. Invite your canine loving friends and their pups to a dog themed party. Add hints of dogs like paw print textiles and a bone shaped cookies. Make sure to have lots of water available and treats for good behavior (human and puppy versions.)
