Having a party within the spectacular sights of a garden is an enthralling experience. Imagine a lush, green field bordered with variations of colorful flowers. If you want to have a successful outdoor party, make sure to stay organized and design the occasion, whether it be a birthday or holiday gathering, with a unique flair. Here are a few steps to create a to remember:
Brainstorm a theme for your soirée that will be fresh and fun in the summer. Invite friends and family to a Fourth of July BBQ or surround them with carnival games. Your choice of venue will be very flexible for any concept, but the most important factor is to consider what will be most enjoyable.
Place rows of chairs around the eating and hangout areas. You can attract attention to one place, but another option would be to set up part of the chosen theme inside if the weather changes.
Decorate entryways with items that coincide with the party’s overall theme. Place some ambiance around the property by hanging lanterns on trees and arranging candles on outdoor tables.
As for food options, your outdoor dining can be arranged into a buffet. Stack the dinnerware at one end of the table. Choose recipes that will be okay to eat while out in the elements, and add dishes for guests with dietary restrictions, if they have an allergy or prefer vegetarian. Also, make sure to place a few trays, so clean up will be easier. For desert, an outdoor party idea that will excite your guests will be servings of ice cream or an assortment of ice cream sandwiches.
Pick music that fits according to your party choices, and changes to a casual tone at nighttime. Set up fun yard games, including bean bag toss. To produce your own photo booth, hang a large cardboard frame and provide summer-themed props, such as beach balls, brightly-colored sunglasses and leis.
If there is a show involved, add family-friendly elements as children need to enjoy the presentation, too. Consider bringing a projector and screen for an outdoor movie night.
