Summer lasts for a glorious 93.6 days in the Northern Hemisphere on average, giving you plenty of time to throw a terrific backyard party.
The key is to come up with creative ideas that will ensure your backyard event lives long in your guests’ memories. Otherwise, you might find partygoers leaving sooner than expected!
To save you the trouble of thinking of fun suggestions, we’re going to list 5 brilliant ideas that you can use this summer.
Let’s find out what they are.
1. Beach Themed Backyard Party
A beach party theme can be as simple or as complex as you’d like. If you have a pool, you could tell people to turn up in their swimming gear, put on the BBQ, throw some sand on the ground, and pretend you’re at the beach.
If you want to be a bit more adventurous, you can lay sea shells on the sand, put out sun loungers, and have a soundtrack of waves rolling in and breaking on the shore.
2. Wine Tasting Party
A simple party event planning concept is to have various types of wine laid out on a table, each bottle in front of a different seat. Guests can sit down, have a sip of wine, and then move to the next chair.
You can put out some crackers, cheese, crisps, and dips for party food.
3. Have a Backyard Movie Night
If you’re looking for an entertaining, yet relaxing, party-planning idea, look no further than having a movie night. You can hire an outdoor movie projector and chill out while your guests have a fabulous time.
This can be a brilliant way for partygoers to unwind while watching their favorite movies with friends and family.
4. Backyard Games Party
There are so many backyard game party ideas that you mightn’t know where to start. You could play sports such as football and basketball, or jump in the pool for a game of water polo.
Alternatively, you could opt for backyard games that require less energy. This could include board games, card games, or even a quiz.
If you’re not sure which games to choose, mix and match them so that you have a wide range of choices for all your guests.
5. Backyard Camping Party
If you’re going to throw a party, there’s no need to ask your guests to leave when the light begins to fade. Instead, have them bring their camping gear and put up tents in your backyard.
You can light a firepit, roast marshmallows, and tell stories until everyone begins to drift off to sleep in the early hours of the morning.
Plan a Fantastic Backyard Party
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to ideas for throwing a backyard party. Whether you choose to have a light-hearted beach party, a more civilized wine-tasting event, or chill out with movies or games, your guests are sure to have a great time. You can even make the most of the summer weather by extending the party to last all day and all night.
