Summer Entertaining Tips
Nothing is more fun than a summertime barbecue or backyard party! It is very important to always be prepared for bad weather. If you plan for the worst and that does happen, it doesn’t have to ruin your party. I always suggest having a great backup plan and I have listed some tips below.
1.) Invest in some backyard coverings or patio tents. Tents can provide shade if the temperatures soar and give you coverage if it starts to rain. Tents can also give your event a more intimate setting. Citronella candles are great for setting a mood and can help repel mosquitoes.
2.) Create a beautiful and inviting party theme. You want to build a sense of excitement for your guests. We always suggest having a centerpiece with fresh flowers and pretty linens. There are tons of silk flowers and paper linens that also can also look great.
3.) Have a wide array of finger food and signature drinks for your quests to choose from. It is also fun to play games and encourage all of your guests to interact with each other. Once your event is over, try giving out a cute party favor that matches your theme. Don't forget to also send out a thank you to each person that have attended your party.
If you follow these steps you are sure to have a great event. We have beautiful party platters, drinkware, and serving utensils that can make your event a success in our CHC store. Email our design team to learn more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
