For the last week it has been burning up in Southern California and while the heat has been somewhat extreme, it has inspired me to think about the coming summer and all of the awesome outdoor parties it brings. So if you’re thinking about planning a party in your backyard or going to the park with your family, incorporate some of these idea’s or simply sit back and be inspired…
Lighting can change the vibe of your party when used both indoors and out. Simply using tealight candles, hanging bulbs and lanterns can go a long way in changing the ambiance of a party. To show you just how much, check out these idea’s from the Wedding Bee & Style Me Pretty.
The great thing about outdoor parties is that you can usually use what you already have on hand for things like seating. I love how the folks at Snippet and Ink and Sara Jane Blog have created a lovely outdoor setting using throw pillows and sheets.
The Aesthetic Nest has got it right when it comes to dining alfresco! Keeping the food individually packaged is genius and really cuts down on clean up. It also personalizes your guests experience and at the end of the day it’s just really freakin cute!
Have you guys started thinking about your summer plans yet? Are there any ideas here you may be able to incorporate? Let me know your thoughts. As always in closing keep the party going…
