This weekend is Memorial Day and it’s the (un)official kick off to the Summer. School’s out, the days are longer and warmer and ready to be filled with parties! I love spending our Summer planning cook-outs, pool time with friends and evenings on the patio with wine and good music. Today I’m sharing ways to entertain that are perfect for the season. Get a jumpstart on the Summer and start organizing your party now. Whatever your plans are, I hope today’s roundup will motivate you to try out some new ideas when preparing your next event. Please leave a comment and let me know your Summer party plans!
Insta Inspiration is an ongoing series where I share my favorite recent instagrams, giving us some creative and imaginative ideas to start our week. Hopefully you’ll be inspired to follow some new instagram accounts, too! Catch up with past Insta Inspiration posts here and make sure you never miss a thing by following The Party Buss on instagram and facebook!
Summer nights are perfect for outdoor movies. Host one in your neighborhood and be sure to include a concession stand like this one from @afancyhostess. The mini marquee is the perfect touch. Classic movie theatre treats will put your guests in a nostalgic mood.
An ice cream social is the perfect way to cool off with friends during a hot Summer afternoon. This sundae station from @everythingevents‘s instagram feed is full of smart details to try. I love how all the ice cream flavors are served in a large, rustic galvanized tub.
Outdoor grilling is a no-brainer during the summer. Satisfy all of your guests with a variety of skewers and kabobs. Change up the meat and veggie combos and everyone will be pleased. The ones that @classiqueeventcatering shared have me ready to fire up the grill!
No Summer is complete without some porch parties! These cups and napkins from @soswoozies are the perfect details when sipping cool drinks with friends and family on a shady, relaxing porch.
And last but not least, a little self-promotion. This pic comes from my own instagram feed. I worked with some amazing clients to style and design a beautiful backyard garden party at their home. Visit my portfolio to read all the details!
