Keep Cool with These Outdoor Summer Party Must Haves

It is officially time to kick back, relax and hang out with your nearest and dearest in the great outdoors! Yes, it's summer and the key element of hospitality when hosting parties this season is the consideration of your guest’s comfort. Summer can be extremely hot and humid so you have to make sure that your family and friends will not get overheated while enjoying the party. To help you throw a memorable summer party, we gathered some chill hacks that will keep your guests cool in a hot and fun party!

Sun Shade Canopy

Protecting your guests from the direct heat is very important if you are hosting an outdoor summer party. When setting up a party in an area with lots of shade trees or covered patios, you can use the space wisely to provide cooler spots for your guests to gather. For party venues where UV blocking is very much needed, sun shade sails are an easy and economical option. Perfect for transforming any outdoor space into a cool retreat! Most sun shade sails come in a triangle or rectangle shape and can be easily installed. A stylish way to provide an excellent heat barrier during your summer getaways!

Cool Summer Drinks

Make sure that refreshing drinks are available on your party tables when guests need an instant chill. It may sound very basic but plenty of ice water and beverages are very important for entertaining on hot days. You may want to set your beverage dispenser jars together with disposable glasses and let your guests help themselves with fun and cool summer drinks. Remember that hydration is the key to staying cool and safe!

Lighting for a Summer Evening Dinner Party

Partying into the night is the easiest way to keep your guests cooler. You may schedule the event later in the day but of course, you have to make sure that you are well prepared with lighting when the sun goes down. LED string lights and flameless candles are must-haves for outdoor night parties. They will not only provide lighting to your space but will also add a positive glowing vibe and romantic ambiance to your evening. Timing and lighting are everything!

Cool Tablescapes

There are endless opportunities when decorating tables for summer outdoor events. This summer you might want to try a tropical-inspired dinner table decor. You can make use of festive tropical leaf design placemats for this theme. They are just perfect for creating an island getaway mood for your summer party. Go bold and embrace the beauty of the summer season with your favorite table setting ideas.
