Summer Parties – Classic Themes

SUMMER PARTY THEMES

Summer is almost here and its time to start planning that outdoor party!  Today I am sharing a roundup of ideal go-to themed parties for your next celebration.  While most of these are kids birthday parties, they are great summer themes for any event too – a Memorial Day family gathering, a barbacue, an adult backyard party, or an employee corporate event.

So grab your sunhat and cocktail and let’s get going to the party!

First up is the classic Lemonade party.  Nothing says summer like lemons!  This party was complete with an actual lemonade stand too.

Oh you know I love these two parties because both feature big PINWHEELS and the one above with a TISSUE TASSEL GARLAND!

Of course strawberries are synonymous with summer too so they make for the perfect theme at this Strawberry Shortcake party.  Love those PAPER FLOWERS on the candy baskets too.

There is no shortage of fruit at any of these parties- next is a watermelon party complete with little hand cut black seeds added to the pink GLOBES– so clever!

 The spread at this watermelon party tablescape is stunning too.

A cherry party is perfect in the summer.  Love all the printed cherry images and the matching striped STRAWS.

Last is a picnic party at a public park- but this could be easily done in a backyard too.  That over the top cake decorated with miniature ants is adorable.  Anything GINGHAM or red and white checks is absolutely necessary at a picnic themed party- but looks great at any summer party too.

Front Entry Party Decorating

FRONT ENTRANCE DECORATING IDEAS

We all know how much we love to decorate our exterior home entrance for the holidays, especially for Halloween, Christmas and for Easter – this entry above is stunningly arranged with flowers and Easter decor for a welcoming spring front door.

What about for a birthday party? Why not welcome your guests to the home party or summer barbecue with some color and signage.  Today I am sharing some ideas for getting your front door and exterior entrance ready for your spring or summer party, holiday celebration or even just a backyard barbecue.

This cheerful balloon wreath is ideal for greeting guests for a first birthday!

Last year I added some fun custom made to order signs to my shop just for hanging on the front door to greet party guests – but these are great on wood poles or hanging on the side fence for backyard parties too-

If you are planning a party, add some colorful decor to your front entrance, even something as basic as a hanging sign or a birthday wreath on the door, can help guests find your home and the party!

I personally love some helium inflated colorful balloons, flanking the door, like this set up above. Balloons are an inexpensive way to decorate and just a few will go far with making a statement at your front entry.

Even this very humble set up of only three balloons tied to some wood cut and painted O-N-E letters for a first birthday makes for a grand entrance.  Confetti balloons are trendy right now too and would make the prefect entrance, with two big over-sized giant 24″ or 36″ size balloons flanking the front door! These big balloons are visible from the street and definitely help guests know they are in the right place for the party.

Of course, if you have the means and really want to impress your guests – why not go all out like this party above or with many more balloons, similar to the balloon entrance below-

A fun sign at the end of your driveway or sidewalk to your entrance are also ideal for directional signage and to help guests locate your house for the party.

I love these two clever signs, above for the Pirate themed party and the Dr. Seuss handmade sign for a first birthday party, shown below.

Whatever theme or type of party you are throwing at your home this spring and summer- be sure to decorate your front entrance with some color or signage to welcome your guests as the come through your home’s front door.

Tissue Tassel Garland Ideas

TISSUE TASSEL GARLAND IDEAS

Happy Monday!  Today  I am sharing some creative ways to display tissue tassels and tissue tassel garlands.

They are now very popular at events and parties and there are so many ways to display them at your celebration!  First if you need a set of tassels to create a garland or add them to balloons, feel free to stop by my shop below – HERE for TISSUE TASSELS

Now for some party inspiration and how to incorporate some stunning tissue tassels to your party!

Tissue Tassel garlands are most commonly displayed across a party table front or behind the table on a wall.

I love this layered affect on top of blank painted frames and over a mirror too.

If you are setting up your party display on a cabinet- drape them across your drawers or cupboard front too- just as stunning!

Tissue tassel hanging from balloons look amazing and create a dramatic statement at any event! Pair them with XL BALLOONS for real pop! These tissue tassel balloon streamers are trendy for brides too at the wedding reception or for a wedding photo shoot.

The look great draped across a fireplace mantel too if you are hosting your party at home and in your living room.  Love these mixed bright colors with the layered banner on top for a 5 year old’s party.  These mixed bright colors of tissue tassels are also perfect for a fiesta or cumpleaños, a rainbow party, a My Little Pony Party, or an art party.

Use them to crate a wall display or even cover a larger area and create photo backdrop area at your event!  Just drape several garlands in a row to cover a larger area, similar to below at this Paris themed party, shown on display along an outdoor fence! Whoa!  There is another idea- use them at an outdoor event and drape them along your backyard fence!

A tissue tassel garland makes a great additional to a baby nursery too as crib decor or anywhere in the nursery!

I hope this has inspired you to add some tissue tassels at your next event!  Subscribe to The Party Fetti Blog by email and get more wonderful party ideas via email as well has home decor, craft tutorials, easy DIY projects and so much more.
