Summer is almost here and for some of you lucky ones, you have already started your summer break. We only have 5 weeks of summer vacation here in Switzerland and it doesn't start until mid-July! I'm already dreaming of sunny skies and warm nights and thinking about what summer parties we can have. In doing that, I took a look at some of the themes I've designed and thought I would share with you some ideas for your summer parties.
1. Pool Party
If you have access to a pool, a pool party is a great idea for summer. It's a fun theme for both kids and adults, and it's really simple to set up. All you need is a pool, and the kids are kept busy and are happy swimming. Always make sure someone is watching the kids in the pool to be safe. The food is easy as well. You can BBQ or have easy finger foods like mini hot dogs and chips. It's definitely an easy-going party and is perfect for summer! See how we styled our pool party for more ideas.
2. Nautical Party
Summer is the time to be by the sea, so why not have a seaside nautical inspired party? We used our red, white and blue printable collection to have a party by the sea. If you can't be by the sea this summer, bring it to you by decorating with lots of red, white and blue, and adding some anchor or nautical decorations to your dessert tables.
3. Camping Party
This is a fun one for the kids! I know I always wanted to sleep under the stars in the backyard, and how much more fun would that have been if my friends would be there too! Set up some tents in the backyard, roast s'mores, tell ghost stories and you have a recipe for a great party. And if the weather doesn't cooperate, you can always have it indoors. We had our camping party indoors. You can take our ideas and bring them outside for more fun!
4. Ice Cream Party
What is summer without ice cream? Have an impromptu ice cream party for friends and enjoy chatting and catching up. Isn't that what summer is for anyway?
