We’re firm believers over here that you don’t need a holiday in order to celebrate! Life’s a party and it’s time we treat it like one 🥳
Summer naturally brings friends and family together, so here’s a few ways you can turn your next summer gathering into a leveled up festive function for your guests:
- Build Your Own Burger Bar
Put a twist on your traditional cook out by creating a burger bar with all the fixins. Adding diner style ketchup + mustard bottles, burger trays & signage elevates your event by creating an extra fun feeling 🍔
- Ice Cream Social
National Ice Cream Day is coming up on July 17th and there’s no better excuse to have an ice cream social. This is such a fun way to level up your pool party or play dates and it’s super easy to go all out – here’s a party kit to get you started 🍦
- Bring Your Own Board
This idea has been recently going viral on TikTok and we’re honestly here for it. The idea is for each guest/couple to go beyond the traditional charcuterie board and bring a themed board of their choosing.
Some popular board ideas include: fruit, veggie, dessert/candy, sushi, drinks, chips & dip. Click here to see what we mean!
- Taco Bout a Party
You don’t need a special occasion for a fiesta! Whip up your favorite Mexican dish (or stick to traditional tacos), add some colorful streamers from the dollar store and maybe even a piñata and you’ll have yourself a party 🌮
- Backyard Movie Night
Nothing screams SUMMER like taking a fun family activity outside. We recently hosted one of these and it was an absolute hit 🎥🍿
Grab all the yummy movie theatre snacks, pop the popcorn and gather everyone on the lawn with pillows and blankies in front of a homemade big screen to enjoy a family movie favorite. We have all the tips for this one listed HERE!
(P.S. we’re now offering Shows with Stella – dreamy outdoor movie night setups complete with a concession stand like service. Inquire here for availability and pricing!)
- Paint & Sip Picnic
Host a paint and sip picnic party by creating individual paint stations in your backyard or living room, stream a painting session on YouTube and have your girls bring their favorite wine for the ultimate girls night. They’ll be talking about this one for days! 🍷🧀🎨
- Low Country Boil
While a low country boil may not be the easiest option for your summer get togethers, it definitely brings a good time and guests usually appreciate something other than hamburgers and hotdogs. And what other meal doesn’t require proper plates or utensils? Sign us up 🍤🦀🌽🥔
