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.

Thanks for stopping by The Party Fetti Blog for some summer party ideas!

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.
