Summer is the perfect time to get people together, whether that may be family, friends, or both. It’s the best time of the year to celebrate. Many celebrations happen in the summer including the Fourth of July, graduation, birthdays, weddings, or even a celebration of life. One way to congregate everyone in one setting is to host a fun summer party! Hosting a summer party with the right weather, the perfect setting, the best food, and making tons of memories will make this summer gathering unforgettable. Here are some tips on how to make this summer party the one to remember.

Party rentals

Have you ever thought about party rentals for a summer party? Believe it or not, even during COVID, you can book a party rental for your next summer party. It’s always good to pick the party rental with the most experience and who has done party rentals before. The best party rental option should also be available during holidays and special occasions. There are several big-city locations to have party rentals so consider looking in your areas. For instance, if you live in NYC consider looking for Brooklyn party rentals in New York. Party rentals are one way to throw an ultimate summer party.

Good food

The first tip is to simplify the food menu. Easy summer dishes that everyone loves such as salad, watermelon, burgers, and more are the best way to keep the menu simple. For those that love to cook and like trying new recipes, just try making one new dish and keep the rest of the menu simple. This will make the preparation for the party easy with recipes you are already comfortable with. One tip to make the food stand out without cooking too much is to buy prepackaged food and dress it up.

Set up for indoor and outdoor

The second tip is for indoor and outdoor parties. Have the appetizers outside so that everyone can enjoy the weather without being crowded indoors the entire visit. Setting up some snacks or appetizers on the deck or in the backyard such as chips and salsa, fruit platter, or vegetable platters are great ways to open up space for a party. Setting up some napkins and décor outside might also be a good idea for your party.


The third tip is to have a drink station. Depending on the party and who the guests are, the drinks can be alcoholic drinks such as beer, wine, coolers, and more. If the guests are young and it’s a family-oriented party, then drinks such as soda and punch would be more suitable. If the age group is a mixture of the two, then it’s best to keep the younger drink station in a different area than the alcoholic drinks.

Control Pests

The fourth tip is to control the mosquitoes outdoors. It’s not fun partying if there are mosquitoes flying everywhere biting everyone. They can swarm and get into the food and drinks outside that you planned out so well and took a lot of time putting it together. Mosquitoes are known to transmit viruses and can get a lot of people sick. Some tips and tricks to solve this issue before it starts are to clean the gutters, buckets, toys, and containers. Also install outdoor ceiling fans, fluorescent outdoor lights, and of course mosquito spray to keep them away.


The fifth and last tip to have a great time is to have great music. Making a playlist before the party starts is the best way to keep the music going! Other options would be to play music mixes from Pandora, Spotify, or Amazon. Also, playing live music from YouTube is another great idea.


Hosting an ultimate summer party can be a lot of work, but if you follow these tips and tricks, your summer party will be unforgettable and make a ton of memories for the future. Having the best music, hosting the best food and drink mixes, and setting up the décor that’s perfect for the audience and setting that your party is in makes the party the best summer gathering to have in any form: celebrations, wedding parties, birthdays, and holidays! Hosting an amazing summer party will have people coming back to you next year or even later on in the year for New Year’s Eve or Christmas!
