Now for some stunning summer party ideas that you can pull off at your summer birthday celebration, barbecue, baby shower, fundraiser, corporate event, or just about any type of summer outdoor activity.  You can’t go wrong with what is trending right now: flamingos, pineapples, unicorns, and mermaids for popular themes but why not pick a party theme that pairs perfectly with the season.  Nothing says SUMMER like watermelons, cherries, strawberries, and lemons! So here we go.

Oh watermelons- the perfect healthy snack for a party and a wonderful theme for any birthday party in the summer.

Cherries on top- what a fabulous setup on a rolling cart for this cherry themed party.  This cart is the perfect size if you are hosting in a small space too.  I highly recommend using what you have- a small bar cart, a dining room buffet, china cabinet, even a fun painted dresser can be a fun piece of furniture and work as a serving table at your party.

You can’t go wrong with strawberries and ice cream in the summer and an ice cream sprinkles bar is so fun for the kids.  While Strawberry Shortcake is the commercial version, why not go with strawberries in general and at this time of year, it is easy to find an abundance of strawberry party decorations.  The ice cream party theme offers so many color options – bright rainbow or soft pastel colors pair well with this theme.

Finally, a lemonade stand at an outdoor event would be perfect for keeping guests refreshed and yellows, pinks and white are so easy to pull off.  I love lemonade themed events paired with daisies or sunflowers for even more pop at a summer outing.  Lemonade stands are a great addition to a big barbecue, a festival, corporate employee event, and they are also popular at outdoor wedding receptions. Both kids and adults love lemonade in the summer heat.

Giant Paper Flowers Trend For Summer Events

Happy Friday!  The weather is so perfect now for outdoor events and weddings.  It is almost summer and with mother nature in full bloom in gardens everywhere this time of year, I want to revisit the popularity of paper flowers as one of the biggest event and party trends of this year.

Giant paper flowers are popping up at all kinds of celebrations and events and the paper flower backgrounds are so easy to create on your own from my Etsy shop flower kits available – HERE

All my flower kits come entirely cut for you!  No need to buy digital templates, print them, cut templates, trace and then cut your actual flowers and finally assemble them – that is way too many steps!! My kits are already cut for you and come with full visual step-by-step instructions! Super easy!

The ideas are endless for where to add paper flowers as decorations at a celebration. While they are trending at weddings for photo backdrops – they are now popping up at baby showers, birthday parties, fundraising events, bridal showers and even has home decor.

I offer numerous options in my Etsy craft shop for the smaller flowers too, available – HERE

The smaller three dimensional layered and rolled flowers or rolled roses can be added to just about anything.  Top off favor boxes or guest gift boxes with flowers in your event or wedding color scheme.  Create flower garlands and hang them in rows for backdrop streamer or drape them horizontally as bunting across the front of a party table or behind your table.

 

Add some rolled flowers around electric string lights to make a big statement at your next evening or low lighted event.  Lighting is always a great way to create a mood and ambiance at a wedding reception.

I will be adding many more styles of paper flowers, including crepe paper flowers over the next few weeks in the shop for more summer options too.  Be sure to stop by the shop – Ready Set Craft Kits and favorite my shop (click the heart under my shop name) to get new updates in your Etsy feed recommendations!

 

Each of the smaller flower kits also come with visual instructions as well.
