When summer starts to kick in, you know it’s time to plan that event you have been thinking of during winter and spring. Fickle weather can have an adverse impact on your events, but if you plan your event during summer, you don’t have to worry about bad weather conditions as much. Planning an outdoor summer party can be overwhelming, but with the right tips and the best outdoor events planner, it becomes entertaining and stress-free.

Tips on how to plan an outdoor summer party:

  1. Clean up your house and compound

In case you had not done spring cleaning, summer is the best time to do a thorough cleaning, which involves cleaning the items that are rarely cleaned such as beddings and furniture days before the party.

  1. Have a concept and theme for the party

A theme and concept is essential in making the party lively and entertaining for your guests, and without any of the two, the party will be boring. The success of your dinner party depends on the theme and concept of the event. Choosing these elements is not an easy task, that’s where Outdoors Events comes in. We have plenty of themes you can choose from and trust me; we never disappoint when it comes to creative themes and concepts for our clients.

  1. Send invitations

After choosing the venue, time and budget plan for the dinner party with the help of your event planner, create a guest list and decide whether you’ll send mailed invitations or online invitations. Make sure you include the what, who, where and when in the invitations.

  1. Plan the menu, decor, and sitting arrangement

When planning menus, we try as much as possible to incorporate in-season ingredients. Summer is the best time to use seasonal ingredients such as fresh herbs, berries and veggies. On the other hand, when it comes to drinks we embrace the idea of beers in an ice bucket or a self-serve bar. The décor is an essential element of any party which most people tend to overlook yet summer is the best time to use bright colors in your decorations. At Outdoor Events we help you choose the decorations which fit in well to your event as we plan it for you. Furthermore, we also offer rentals such as tables, linens, serve-ware, etc., so there’s nothing to worry about when Outdoor Events is planning and managing your events since elegance, comfort and satisfaction is what we aim for.
