09 Jul 5 Party Planning Tips to Help You Throw the Perfect Outdoor Summer Bash
Do you want to be the host with the most this summer? Summer parties are a blast, but they can be nerve-wracking to plan. Follow these tips to have a summer bash that goes off without a hitch.
Repell the pests
There’s next to nothing worse than getting bit by mosquitoes when you’re outside just trying to have a good time. To keep pests away, try your best to get rid of any standing water that might be lingering. Then, you can set out some bug spray and light the tiki candles. If the bugs are really bad, you can put out some fans because mosquitoes are weak fliers and the fans can keep them away.
Master the music
A great summer party needs great music. According to Real Simple, there are three things to keep in mind when you’re planning the playlist for your outdoor summer bash. First, don’t crank up the speakers. No one wants to shout over each other. Second, go heavy on the classics. Upbeat tunes that people can sing along to will be a hit. Finally, have enough music for about five hours. Most parties don’t last longer than that.
Stock the drinks
Summer is known for its heat, so don’t leave your guests hanging out to dry. Dehydration and heat exhaustion can seriously harm someone, so keep a cooler stocked full of ice and drinks. It’s also a good idea to set out large drink dispensers filled with things like ice water, pre-mixed lemonade, and even sangria. This will make it easier for your guests to stay cool and hydrated.
Hiring chauffeurs may sound a little over-the-top for your summer party, but your guests will love it! Limousine services will help you and your guests arrive in style, even if it is only to your backyard. The chauffeurs can also help keep your guests safe by preventing them from driving after they’ve had a few drinks. Additionally, the taxi and limo industry generations around $11 billion every year in the United States, so you know other people are taking advantage of this cool-factor during their parties too.
Light it up
The party doesn’t stop when the sun goes down right? It will if you don’t have the proper outdoor lighting. You can create a super fun, intimate, and welcoming atmosphere by placing some tea lights, lanterns, or firefly lights around the yard. Make sure you illuminate pathways and highlight tripping hazards so your guests don’t stumble and fall in the dark.
