Summer is the time of year when parents do not have to worry about packing lunches, assisting with homework or running from one school activity to the next. Summer days are filled with pool parties, summer BBQs, plans to hit the beach or go shopping for that latest summer fashion trend.
Planning a festive summer gathering is also on the wish list because it is the perfect time of year to celebrate as a family and enjoy a break from the rigorous school year routine. Here are a few tips when hosting an impromptu summer party without a lot of fuss:
Create a fun, signature drink. Maybe you love mojitos, martinis or sangria. You can find inspiration on Pinterest to seek out that perfect summer cocktail mix. There are some fun recipes you can try yourself and there are fabulous ideas to create a DIY glass to present to your guests. This Raspberry Beer Cocktail as a signature drink would be a hit at any party!
Think about creating a drink station. We absolutely love the idea of setting up a Mimosa Bar as shown here. This not only provides organization for you as a host, but it gives the room a party feel and keeps the drinks flowing in one area of the home. You can create a drink station with virtually any kind of cocktail! Its the easiest way to provide a punch of festive fun to any impromptu gathering.
Keep the party simple with summer attire and a summer party theme.Adore Magazine shares some great products that you can include for the big day as you host the impromptu gathering such as sporting some trendy sunglasses, flip flops and accessories.
