It’s your kids’ favorite time of year! School is out and they’re ready to have a little fun. To kick off the summer vacation season, see these awesome ideas for throwing an outdoor party everyone will love, courtesy of the HGTV blog.

Outdoor Party Ideas to Welcome Summer

Think Theme: Would your kids fancy a crafting camp out, an outdoor movie night or a water war extravaganza on a sunny afternoon? Ask yourself what kind of party you would have liked to attend at that age. Pro Tip: When in doubt, just add water. Water balloons, sprinklers, whatever — water will always wow the crowd.

Deck Out Your Deck: Once you’ve got your theme tied down, it’s time to move on to the real fun — decorating! Go ahead and stock up on bright and colorful decorations for the backyard. For that curated and custom look, check out our go-to online party supply shops. You’ll find custom balloons, banners and pretty paper plates aplenty!

Stay Safe: Stock up on sun-safety measures, such as sunscreen and bug spray so kids (and adults) can stay safe and play all day. For extra protection, DIY our mosquito-repelling cord bracelets and pass them out to everyone upon arrival.

Spread the Word: What better way to do just that than with some cute printable invites? This popsicle printable embodies summer fun and sets the tone for a fun-filled afternoon to come. Hosting your own glamping party? Perfect! Download our popsicle printable for free.

Prepare Healthy Pickings: Whether you’re hosting a wet ‘n’ wild splash party or a craft-a-thon, snacks are a must. Keep your pint-sized party peeps energized all afternoon with a healthy spread of fresh fruits, veggies and dips to match. Pro Tip: Ask parents to pencil in their child’s food allergies on the RSVP. This will allow you to create a menu that all your guests can enjoy without a cameo appearance of an allergy pen.
