Summer is on its way, and many of us are looking forward to socialising again in the sunshine after a difficult year. After all this time, though, it’s perhaps not surprising that our party-planning skills may be a bit rusty. There’s so much to think about, and it’s difficult to know where to begin! If you’re in the same boat, read on to find out how plan the perfect summer party.
Find the right space
If you’re lucky enough to have a good-sized garden, then this is ideal for a summer party. With enough space for multiple guests, and the (hopefully) glorious sunshine to enjoy, this is the way to go.
Picking outdoor spaces is recommended – as well as being able to enjoy the fresh air and sun, it’ll be a more Covid-safe environment, too (as it’s known that Covid is more likely to spread indoors).
There’s nothing like a classic BBQ to get those tastebuds excited. Every party needs food to keep your guest fuelled up, and a BBQ is the perfect fit if you’re hoping to make the most of the sun. The only thing to bear in mind is to include enough vegan and vegetarian alternatives for your guests – but this is now easier (and tastier) than ever, with so many veggie burgers and hotdogs available in almost every supermarket.
Consider a live band
As well as food to keep everyone energised, you’ll need some good music to keep everyone dancing. Why not consider a live band to really create that festival feeling? There are so many types of bands to choose from for your party – from folk and country music to Jazz and R&B. You can really express your personality with your choice of genre, and create the perfect atmosphere to tie the whole party together.
These are only a few ideas, and you’ll undoubtedly think of many more as you continue to plan the summer party of your dreams. Get out there and have fun in the sun!
