The temperature has nearly reached 100 in my area and when we aren't cooling off inside with the air conditioner, we are outside enjoying refreshing fruit. Fruit is kind of a summer staple. Did you see the pineapple watermelon skewer recipe this week? It's become my new “go to” when it comes to serving up party appetizers.
I love creating a scene or setting up a theme to make the event come alive. From colorful decor to crafty cocktails, I try to come up with creative party ideas for each soiree I throw.
Summer Party Ideas
- Mojito Mixer: Create minty mojitos and pair with cigars, Cuban music, and lime decor.
- Bloody Mary Bar: Let guests create their own garnishes from olives to hot sauce!
- Sunday Brunch with Mimosa Bar: Mimosas get a twist with other juices like raspberry, pineapple, or grapefruit.
- Lawn Games: Cornhole, lawn bowling, bocce, and croquet get a new life when you play them with friends on a sunny afternoon.
- Summer is Sweet
For a Summer is Sweet party theme, try those pineapple watermelon skewers. Pair them with a sweet summer spritzer and decorate with fresh fruit and colorful cutlery.
Another way to easily add decor to a party is with printables. You can make your own or find inspiration online. For a summer is sweet party, here are three fruity prints to get you started.
