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.
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.
