Summer is wrapping up, but you can still hang on to the last bit of summer and warmer weather with an end of summer party. While it can certainly be a casual affair, with a little planning using our tips below, you’re sure to have the best end of summer party in town! Start planning for your party today using these tips below:
Nothing says summer like water, and with fall and winter quickly approaching, we should be taking advantage of it as often as we can. You can have your end of summer party at the local pool or even the lake, but if you’re not feeling a pool or lake-based party, you can add other elements of water throughout. Whether it’s adding misters to your patio or pulling out your zen water fountain, a little bit of water can go a long way.
Juxtapose Hot and Cold
The weather is hot, and while you’re celebrating the last of it with your end of summer party, you don’t want your guests to suffer from heat stroke. Provide cold beverages, ice cream or popsicles as icy refreshments, and create shaded areas for guests trying to avoid a sunburn. We recommend always having ice readily available, whether it’s inside your freezer, in a cooler, or in your favorite teal trailer, to ensure cold beverages are always available.
Choose a Theme
Party planning 101 involves choosing a theme prior to sending out your invitations or planning the party activities, and an end of summer party is no different. While “end of summer” could certainly be your only theme, you might consider taking it a step further with a tropical or luau themed event. Your party theme should remind your guests to take advantage of the warm weather while it still lasts and provide them with memories to keep them warm throughout the winter.
Make it Memorable
It doesn’t have to be a crazy party for it to be a memorable one. With good people, outdoor activities and a wide range of food and drinks, your guests will be talking about your party for the rest of the year. Whether you have backyard dance floor, a photo station, or a fun bar, you’ll want your party to be full of happy memories for everyone involved. Make sure that all of your guests are included in the conversations and activities, especially if not everyone is familiar with each other. While you certainly want to have fun at your party, it’s also your responsibility as a host to ensure your guests are having a good time as well.
