Select a Fun Theme

Your theme should incorporate a color palette for the event, this will be visually striking for your guests and leave them incredibly impressed with your attention to detail.


Offer an Awesome Menu

Let’s face it, you can’t have a party without food. That being said whether your party is for a few close friends or for a large group, food is important to everyone. For smaller parties you could have a fun and interesting charcuterie board with fresh seasonal fruits and cheeses you haven’t tried before with complimentary meat pairings. Larger parties could include some grilled summer bbq dishes or your summer party could have some local seafood served alongside a fresh green salad. Whatever you decide to serve at your party, be sure that it’s fresh and in season to really wow your guests.


Serve Refreshing Drinks

Dress up your party with fun drink options. Keep things colorful by livening up your water pitcher with fresh cut cucumber or orange slices. For cocktails, make sure you serve drinks that pair well with the food you’re serving. For food off of the grill, you could provide some seasonal beers and ciders. As for seafood and charcuterie boards, serve a nice bottle of white wine, whether it’s a bottle of bubbly prosecco or a bottle smooth chardonnay, you can’t go wrong with a bottle of vino. You could also create your own signature cocktail to go with the parties theme, it’ll be a fun way to connect some of your favorite cocktail must haves, the atmosphere and your guests.
