The summer is a great time to throw a birthday party. The nice weather allows for outdoor parties without having to worry about rain. With the kids out of school, you don’t have to limit the party date to just weekends. To help you take full advantage of the summer months, here are some summer birthday party ideas that we recommend. Before trying any of these summer birthday party ideas, be sure to check your weather forecast to ensure that there is no chance of rain.
As you are planning for a summer birthday party and reviewing your ideas for decoration and setup, be sure that you have enough space in the backyard. If you do not have enough space in the yard, you can also reserve an area at a local park. Ensure that you have enough space for all of your summer birthday party ideas, including decoration banners and balloons, lunch and cake, entertainment, and activities.
When considering activity ideas for a summer birthday party, you will usually have more flexibility with spacing since you are not confined to a smaller indoor space. With an open backyard or park at your disposal, you can throw games of tag, sack races, relay races, water balloon tossing, and any other outdoor summer birthday party game ideas that you have. When considering and finalizing these summer birthday party activity ideas, be sure to consider the age group that is attending the party so that younger or older kids aren’t left out.
Food is one of the main birthday party ideas for you to consider, whether it is summer or not. Our go-to summertime food recommendation is BBQ, this will give the parents an opportunity to participate in the cooking and cook their unique recipes. Instead of buying soda, why not try Hawaiian punch or lemonade? You can even turn the drinks into an activity, and teach the kids how to make their own lemonade!
