Outdoor Movie Night This isn’t usually the first idea that comes to mind when someone thinks summer party outside of daydreams because it’s often considered too expensive to have your own outdoor movie theater.

BBQ Party Nothing beats the classic BBQ party, it’s the standard on holidays like The 4th of July. The classic smell of charcoal, spare ribs and BBQ sauce brings nostalgia to many and remains a great way to celebrate the summertime. Fortunately, you don’t need a lot to make a BBQ party happen. Of course, you will need the fundamentals; a BBQ grill, food, speakers and your friends and family but aside from that there is not much more you need to add to make it a great time. Although you could always combine it with another party idea from this list to make a truly memorable BBQ. Feel free to get creative with decorations and themes to give it a personal feel. Luau A luau is a traditional Hawaiin party and feast with entertainment that includes music and traditional Hawaiin dances. This is a super fun and relatively simple type of party to throw with lots of ways you can get creative. You can add tropical plants, flowers, and decorations to make it feel like you’re in Hawaii. This is a versatile type of party you can use for birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, graduations and more. When it comes to speakers, make sure they are loud enough for your guests to hear which will be determined by how many guests you will have and how spread out they will be. Outdoor Karaoke Party The great thing about karaoke parties is that they can be done at any time of the year and not feel out of place. What’s especially awesome about summer karaoke parties is that you can comfortably do them indoors or outdoors. Throwing a truly amazing karaoke party is an art in and of itself we have written about before but doing one outdoors adds a small layer of complexity depending on what the weather is like in the area you choose to throw the party. If you are doing the outdoor party in an area where wind and/or rain may be a factor, you may want to consider renting pipes and drapes to keep everyone protected from the weather. The same applies to any outdoor party you are doing with sensitive electronics like speakers, tv screens or power outlets because the cost of the equipment can be high not to mention they can be dangerous when mixed with water so be sure to plan for the weather. Now that you know some different ways you can celebrate the summertime there’s no better time to get started! Always remember to consider your budget and what you must have first before adding anything extra to your party plans. Consider what you need, whether that’s an outdoor screen, speakers or something else.
