Throwing an unforgettable summer party is all about giving your shindig a creative twist.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with going for the classic BBQ, beer, and brats in the backyard. But if you’re trying to throw a summer bash that your friends will talk about for years, approaching your parties with something new and exciting is what you need.
We think a fresh spin on the classics is the key to throwing the ultimate celebration to embrace the season and make sure your summer is one for the books. Check out these creative themes for your next summer party so that you can have an unforgettable party season.
If you’re looking to plan a more intricate and opulent shindig, taking a page from Jay Gatsby and celebrating the extravagance of the roaring 20s is an excellent way to go. You can fashion the ambiance of your party around speakeasies and complete the picture with specialty cocktails and a bar set-up.
Additionally, you can encourage your guests to have fun with attire and dress to reflect the glamorous styles of the decade. You can decorate with flashy lights in dark-lit rooms and with vintage décor. You can stick as close to the era as you wish, but don’t feel as though you can’t provide modern music and food for your guests to enjoy!
Celebration on the Water
Throwing a party on the water is another excellent way to celebrate your summer. This event is best with a cold drink in hand and a view from the helm of a boat. And if you don’t happen to have a sea-fairing vessel of your own, premium boat rentals are more common than you’d think.
The great thing about planning a boat party with your friends is that it’s as classy or casual as you like. If you want to go for a yacht-like ambiance, complete with gourmet cuisine and formal attire, then you can plan accordingly. Or, if a lax, fireworks, and barbecue vibe is what you’re after, it’s easy to plan for that too.
Brunch Kick-Back in the Park
In our opinion, a kick-back in the park is the perfect way to embrace the sunny season. First, brunch in the park is easy to pull off, as you don’t have to worry about reserving a venue; all you need to do is show up to the park with awesome brunch food and cocktails.
Additionally, you can keep your dress code casual and focus on planning activities, such as paddle boating, kayaking on the lake, and flag football. Even better, you can enjoy live music, food trucks, and the like depending on which park you choose. This party theme is excellent for those looking to enjoy a social event in a relaxed, outdoor setting.
So, if you’re looking for ways to make your summer memorable, we hope you’ll consider these creative themes for your next summer party when you start making plans!
