Are you planning to host any outdoor parties this summer? As we talked about yesterday, I have a child that is graduating this year so I will be planning an outdoor party for that. I also have a son with a summertime birthday so I will be planning an outdoor party for that as well. At this point, I’m getting pretty used to planning these things.
If you are wanting to play host for an outdoor party this year, make sure you are prepared. Here are some must haves for your outdoor party to be sure that your party is as successful as possible.
Must Haves for Your Outdoor Party
Here is my list of must haves for your outdoor party that will ensure that you and your guests will have a great time!
Coolers and Lots of Ice
If it is hot outside, you need to have lots of ice on hand and some good, insulated coolers to keep the ice frozen and keep your drinks cold. Let’s face it, an outdoor party is just not fun if all of your guests are hot and miserable.
Yard torches or citronella candles are a must have for any summertime outdoor party, especially if your party will extend to the evening hours. No one wants to deal with the misery of mosquitos. Plus, they look cool.
Lighting is a must have for any evening time party. You don’t want anyone to trip and fall in your yard, correct? Many string lights and garden lights just look good too so it’s a win win!
Bluetooth Outdoor Speaker
You need some nice, mood music right? Be sure to have a good, bluetooth speaker that is rated for the outdoors so you can listen to music outside.
