The countdown has officially begun! The last day of school for Duval, St. Johns and Clay County students is right around the corner. The perfect way to celebrate a successful year and get the kids excited for summer is a kick-off party. Invite the whole class, choose a theme and go all out. Why? Because the kids (and parents!) deserve a summer break.

Take a look at the Celebration Party Rental team’s favorite themes for an upcoming summer kickoff party.

Convert Your Backyard Into a Carnival for the Kiddos

We’re talking balloon animals, sweet treats and carnival-like entertainment. The Celebration Party Rental team can’t think of a better way to get the whole class into the summer spirit. Here are a few must-haves for a summer carnival kick-off:

  • Choose fun, sweet treats that your kids might normally get at your local fair. Colorful sno kones, homemade funnel cakes, hamburgers and hotdogs are all affordable options.
  • We don’t know about you, but we definitely can’t fit a Ferris wheel in our backyard! Instead, opt for an on-theme bounce house or slide. Our favorite options for a carnival theme are the Glitter House or Joey Octopus.
  • Enlist one of the artistic parents to run a face painting station. Head to your local party store for the paint and brushes. Let the kids choose from a few fun options like a tiger, Shrek or a clown.

A Beach Theme is a Natural Choice in Jacksonville

Go all out with a luau-style beach party. From the food to the fun, every aspect of this party makes this theme the perfect option.

  • Ask every guest to wear a swimsuit and beach coverup, then give each kid a Hawaiian Lei upon arrival to the party.
  • There’s no better way to take this party theme to the next level than with a Hawaiian Luau bounce house. Have enough space in your yard? Add the Surfs Up water slide to your entertainment, too.
  • Lay out some picnic blankets when it’s time to eat. Serve the kiddos fried chicken, fresh fruit and potato chips. Let the parents have a little fun also by providing cold beer and wine.
