Sweeties, summer is almost here which means it is getting warm enough for evening parties on the porch or patio. We have some fun ideas to share to make your next patio party an evening to remember! Gather your best pals, some good conversation, and see our “best of” list below!
Let the games begin:
As your guests make themselves at home, having fun games around the yard will help get the party started! Anyone up for a game of tic tac toe? Make your own outdoor tic tac toe board to keep outside using rocks! Yes rocks! All you need is some simple items to make this game. Get the details here.
Keep Tummies full:
When guests come over, they are gonna wanna eat. We suggest serving appetizers and easy to eat foods to help keep the party preparation and mess at a minimum. These fun and flavorsome Hawaiian teriyaki kabobs that are so colorful, full of zest, and easy to eat too! Who’s hungry?! See the recipe!
As the party gets well into the evening, make sure you have pitchers of Decaf Southern Breeze in the fridge ready to be served. Our Decaf blend has zero sugar, zero guilt, AND zero caffine, so you may sip until your heart's content, no matter what time of the night it is!
Sweet Tip! Add a fresh spin to the blend and add in some mint! Have some fresh mint in the garden? Add ‘em to your ice! See this recipe.
With your mason jars full, it’s time to sit down, relax. Try something new! Add a fun, DIY porch or patio swing. Picture it sweeties, sippin’ and swingin’ while lookin’ into the twinkling sky…sounds like Heaven to us. A swing can be made out of pallets, and old chair, or even a trampoline (How cool y’all!). Your party will be the talk of the town! See some fun ideas.
Light it up:
Let there be light y’all! Having lights around creates ambiance but it’s also recommended to have a well lit party space to prevent falls.Safety first! Anyone can go out and buy string lights to hang around, but try making your own string lights.That’s right! All you need is Christmas lights that you may have laying around...and ping pong balls! What a great idea! See the how-to here.
Keep the bugs at bay:
While you may have the citronella candles burnin’ try another way to keep the buggies away. We recommend a fun way to put those mason jars to good use.These DIY mason jar mosquito repellents can be whipped up in a jiffy and won’t even cost that much to make! PLUS, these make cute decorations for your party! Make them today.
There you have it, y’all! What ways do you make your summer parties special? Share with us in the comments below!
