How To Throw A Birthday Party For A Loved One, Summer Style!

Birthday parties are always a lot of fun to plan and host. But when it comes to summer, party planning really comes alive. With the promise of warmer weather, longer days, and lighter nights, your options always feel endless. So, now that you have a Birthday coming up for a loved one, what kind of party are you going to throw? During the summer months, it would be crazy not to take advantage of the beautiful outdoors. So, if you’re looking to host a party outdoors this summer, here are a few ideas to get you started.

Pick A Perfect Location

When it comes to planning, the first thing that you need to do is decide on a location. With such beautiful weather, you can often feel as if you’re spoilt for choice. Depending on where you live, you may want to think about doing something in your backyard - especially if you have space. But, in summer, you have the option to throw a garden party or pool party, or even a gathering on a beach if you live close by and local authorities allow it. Wherever you decide, remember that it can often set the theme of the party.

Create A Summer Menu

To go with your very summer style party, you’re going to want to create the perfect menu. Although you may want to go with food options that the Birthday boy or girl loves themselves, it’s often worth considering the different summer style foods you can do. A barbecue is always great for garden and beach parties, but you may also want to serve light salads or fresh crispy pizza, finger food, or even a build your own burrito bar. Serve watermelon or berries as a snack. Strawberry shortcake is always a great summer dessert.

Order A Creative Cake

With every party, there needs to be cake for the special person’s day. This could be something that you create yourself, or you might even want to order it from a local bakery. Either way, you’re going to want to pick out a cool design. Whether you want to choose a creation that goes with the theme you have in mind or something the Birthday boy or girl is passionate about, there are so many creative birthday cake options to choose from; your choice is sure to be a hit. A beach theme or evening sporting themed cake would be perfect.

Get A Great Gift

Then there’s always the gift to think about. Even when you’re planning and hosting the party, you still need to make sure you have found the perfect gift. This could be something that fits perfectly with the party or is something the recipient is passionate about. However, you also have the option to find gift cards online so that the Birthday person can pick out something themselves. Sometimes, it’s the perfect present for someone that has everything.

Make An Insane Agenda

And finally, you’re going to want to make sure you have the perfect plan for the party. Sometimes, it can be fun to let guests entertain themselves, but if you have the option to loosely schedule the evening it will definitely feel a bit more put together. Perhaps, have an introduction game, followed by some light snacks and time to talk, then schedule a few activities before the big meal.  If you are at a park or beach, you coud have a volleyball game, frisbee contest or maybe a light game of baseball.  And, of course, there’s always party games to think of.
