Summer is almost here and absolutely everyone so getting ready to enjoy the sunshine and get away for a whole. Today we are going to take a look at some of the ways you can enjoy your summer days at home or in the garden with your family and friends.
Pot luck party
If you fancy having an afternoon in the garden with your family and friends this weekend, a great idea could be a pot luck party. The idea of this kind of party is that everyone brings a dish of food which can be eaten by everyone else. When you organise a party like this it will take the stress off you because you won’t have to spend hours in the kitchen making food for everyone to enjoy when they arrive. You can even ask everyone to bring a bottle of drink or a cocktail to make sure you don’t run out during the day!
Fancy dress might seem like a childish thing but sometimes we all need to see that inner child and have some fun! How about arranging a themed party such as superheroes and make everyone come as their favourite caped crusader. This is a great way to let go and have a laugh at the weekend, and once you’ve got a little alcohol in your belly you won’t be too concerned with who is wearing what anyway!
For the ultimate summer fun, a garden pool party can be the best way to celebrate. There are lots of amazing inflatable pools which you can buy online and in store to fit 8-10 people inside and you can set this up a day or two before your party to allow the water to warm up. Pairing this with some hilarious bucks party games and amazing food from the barbecue, you’ll have a great party on your hands! Decorate the space with lots of palm trees, get some floats in the pool and keep the beer flowing for an amazing day with your family and friends.
If you have children and you fancy creating party which will keep them and everyone else occupied for the afternoon, a sports day theme could be amazing. You’ll be able to make teams by pulling names out of a hat and everyone can compete in games like egg and spoon, obstacle course, sack race and more. It’ll be a bit of fun and the winners can have a goody bag of sweets as a reward!
For those summer days when you want to share some time with your adult family, this next party idea is a great choice. Afternoon tea is a popular pastime which people like to do on a summer’s day and you can create a garden party with this theme very easily. All you will need is lots of finger sandwiches, plenty of tea and prosecco, and sweet treats such as scones and cakes. It will be fun for everyone and you’ll be able to enjoy sunbathing with your loved ones.
