4 Tips for Hosting an Amazing Summer Party

One of the best things about summer is that it brings bright, sunny days and warm, inviting nights that are perfect for parties. Everyone loves to gather around the pool or the fire pit with friends and family and share some laughter after a long winter. However, even the most casual summer soirée requires careful planning to ensure that it doesn’t go south. Here are four tips to set your summer party up for success.

Share the Plan

Are you thinking about a daytime party, or an evening affair? Do you have a party theme or a specific event you’re celebrating? Do you want a casual vibe, or a more upscale feel? Every decision you make in the initial planning stages will help when it’s time to dig into the details.
When inviting people to a casual party, you may choose to simply email guests a few weeks in advance. A more formal event may call for printed invitations sent a month ahead or more. However you handle the invites, be sure to include all the information your guests need. This includes the basics like time and location, as well as specifics such as whether kids are welcome, what level of dress is appropriate, and what you plan to serve, from light refreshments and cocktails to a full meal.
Be sure to ask for RSVPs by at least a few days before the party so you know how many people to expect.

Set the Tone With the Right Tunes

Nothing sets the mood like music. Pair a casual afternoon barbecue with classic rock selections, or throw an evening cocktail party with lively jazz. Keep the volume low so that the music is audible in the background without being too loud for guests to chat. If you’re building a playlist, either through a streaming service or your own collection, aim for about five hours of tunes to avoid repeats. Read More
