Although throwing a summer party can be a great amount of fun, there is some planning involved to pull off a successful get together. Here we cover some tips you can follow to host a party easily and with the least amount of stress. And don’t forget details count, so plan ahead so you can actually enjoy the party!
Make it comfortable
Think big scatter cushions and bean bags. The more the better! You want your guests to be able to relax and feel comfy so do invest in some decent cushions – if they are weatherproof even better. Arrange them in a way that will get guests cosying up next to them, especially if it gets cooler in the evening where you live.
Don’t forget to provide guests with blankets too if there’s a chill in the air. There’s something very comforting sitting around a bonfire late into the night with a warm drink and good company.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to make your space festive and inviting. You can decorate on a shoe-string budget. The best place to shop for things like bunting, candles and all things fun is a party shop. Here you will find all sorts of interesting things to decorate your space with and it won’t cost a lot. You can even make bunting yourself, just search online for some easy tutorials.
You can also find inexpensive string lights at most home stores these days and they really add a great ambience to an area. You can even purchase outdoor string lights that can withstand heat and moisture so they can stay up all the time and you can enjoy sparkly lights all year around.
Blow away your troubles

Keep it sparkly
You can’t have a summer party without a gleaming pool! So be ready and speak to your local pool shop for expert advice on how to boost your pool so that it’s looking its best when your party comes around.
There are booster products that you can add to it, as well as maintenance products that will keep it looking good all through summer. Remember to clear any dead leaves and debris on the surface of the water, and install a pool vacuum if you don’t have one already to clear anything that falls to the floor of the pool.
Keep it green
We know, we know you’ve probably heard this a hundred times before, but single-use plastics are extremely harmful to the environment and aquatic life. So why not keep your party green and opt for paper plates and eco-friendly partyware. You’ll do the environment a favour and feel better about yourself for contributing positively to this growing problem.
Don’t forget the drinks!
The best way to keep drinks cool if you don’t have enough space in your fridge is to invest in a big tub and put a lot of ice in there or even to use your bath for an easy and inexpensive way to store cool drinks. It’s the perfect ice bucket if you are entertaining a lot of people and you know your drinks will be safe and cool throughout the party.
If you are constantly losing your bottle opener attach it to the table or bucket so that no one walks off with it and it’s always there for the next person to use. Another tip is to make it easy for guests to serve the drinks themselves and to personalise guests’ glasses with their names so that they don’t land up using too many glasses. That saves on washing up!
