Barbecues and picnics are easy, go-to summer party themes. Get out of a hostess rut and wow your guests by turning up the heat this summer with one of these themed get-together ideas!
Host a Luau – Just because you don’t live in Hawaii doesn’t mean you can’t have a luau in your own backyard! Get your guests excited for tropical drinks, grilled fish, dancing and games by sending them an Aloha Party invitation. The vibrant colors are perfect for summer and the lush flora and fauna design will help get your guests in an island frame of mind.
Party tips: For an affordable, fun take-home gift, provide guests with a colorful lei as they arrive. Get your guests to mingle with others by setting up a limbo station or integrate an ugly Hawaiian shirt contest.
Poker night – Take your annual poker game outdoors this summer! Use your patio as a backdrop to set up a casino-themed soiree. Set up three tables around your yard to create designated game areas. Use one table to set up a game of blackjack, another for crabs and a third for poker. Get the dice rolling with the Casino Night invitation so guests have plenty of time to collect some extra change.
Party tips: Set a timer to keep guests moving from one table to the next and keep the betting to a minimum to ensure game night isn’t over before it even starts. String lights around the backyard to keep the tables lit as the sun goes down and make sure your wet bar is full stocked!
