Summer parties are a great way to enjoy the warm weather and spend time with family and friends! With summer approaching, the heat can be a major concern, and it's important to plan ahead to ensure that your guests are comfortable and happy.
At Escape Party Planning we understand the importance of keeping your guests cool during the hot summer months.
Here are some tips on how to beat the heat and create a memorable and comfortable experience for your guests:
Provide Shade: Rent Tents or Umbrellas The easiest way to keep your guests cool during a summer party is to provide shade. Renting tents or umbrellas is a great way to create a shaded area where guests can relax and stay cool. You can also consider setting up shaded lounge areas with comfortable seating to provide a space where guests can cool off.
Keep Guests Refreshed: Provide Misting Fans and Coolers In addition to providing shade, you can also keep guests refreshed by providing misting fans or coolers filled with ice-cold drinks. Misting fans are a great way to cool down the air and create a comfortable environment for guests. You can also set up coolers filled with refreshing drinks, such as water, lemonade, or iced tea, to keep guests hydrated.
Serve Cool Treats: Frozen Desserts Another way to keep guests cool is to serve frozen desserts, such as ice cream, popsicles, or sorbet. These treats not only help guests cool down, but they also add a fun and festive element to your party.
Timing: Schedule Party During Cooler Time of Day Consider scheduling your party during a cooler time of day, such as early morning or evening, to avoid the heat of the midday sun.
Choose Summer-Friendly Foods When planning a summer party, it's important to consider the outdoor temperature and choose foods that won't spoil in the heat. Opt for light and non-alcoholic options at your party to keep your guests hydrated and happy.
For non-alcoholic options, consider offering infused water or iced tea with fresh fruits and herbs, such as lemon, mint, or cucumber. You can also serve a variety of chilled fruit juices or smoothies, which can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. For alcoholic options, consider serving light and refreshing cocktails, such as a classic mojito or a fruity sangria. You can also create your own signature cocktail by mixing your favorite spirits with fresh fruits and juices. Be sure to provide plenty of ice and garnishes, such as fresh fruit slices or herbs, to add a touch of elegance to your cocktails.
