We’re up for scorching weather this summer, and it’s the perfect time to share our favourite summer party ideas!
Parties are as much about celebrating as they are about celebrating friendship and family itself – parties are one of the best times to reconnect with them – so if you have a friend or loved one you have spoken or seen in a while, now is a good time to catch up!
Take advantage of this fine weather and check out our feel good summer party ideas below.
Grilling in the garden
Ah, warm summer nights and bright sunny days! Fire up the grill and get your buddies over while the weather’s hot. A barbecue party is great for socialising because it’s informal, you can enjoy the awesome weather and it’s a great chance to bring friends and family together who haven’t seen each other in a while.
Go all-out and prepare a full-selection of meats, sides and sauces…summer doesn’t last forever! Remember to protect yourself and wear sunscreen and stylish sunglasses.
Hit the beach!
If you live near the beach or are planning to head there soon, it could be the perfect place for a party!
You don’t need to plan ahead…just hit the sand and see where the day takes you. You could spend the day relaxing in the sun, playing beach volleyball, swimming or doing all of these things! Bring the day to an end with a homemade batch of summer ice-cream cake.
But if you do like to plan, camp out! The beach is a fun place to camp out under the stars and listen to the lapping waves.
Trip to a restaurant
We get it: sometimes you, your family and friends are busy with work or kids and there just isn’t time to plan something large-scale, but that doesn’t mean you can’t organise a great party! Book out your favourite restaurant or give them a real treat at a fancy one, complete with balloons and banners. It’s the perfect chance to reunite with friends and family you haven’t seen in a while and just to catch up.
If you’re lucky enough to have a pool or know someone who does, a pool party is a fun and easy-to-organise summer party. Be sure to pick a weekend with good weather and let the good times roll! If you want to keep it low-key, some inflatables, drinks and great tunes are all you need. Be sure to make a summer playlist full of songs that remind you of good times.
Bonus idea – create a summer party photobook
We’re willing to bet you’ve got tons of photos on your phone of you, your family and your pals from this awesome summer party…so transform them into a photobook to create an extra-special summer gift. Keep these memories and revisit them fondly for years to come.
We hope these summer party ideas have inspired you and have you planning! Share your pics of your summer celebration with us on social media with #myprinterpix.
