Woo hoo! Summer is here. And the first thing on our bucket list is celebrating! So we decided to throw an awesome summer soiree and invite all our friends and family. And since we want it to be truly summertacular we started researching seasonal party themes. So far, for starters, we found these three ideas from some of our favorite bloggers. Which means we'll need to host another summer shindig, and another, and so on ... all season long.

Summer Party Theme Idea: Hawaiian Luau

Aloha, Summer

Greet the season (and your guests) Hawaiian style with a sunset-colored pineapple sorbet boat, Tropical Twister cocktails, hand-dipped cherries and more island-inspired decor, drinks and bites. It’s the next best thing to a tropical vacation, or maybe just practice for your summer vacay.

Summer Party Theme: Camp Out

Summer Camp Out

Ah summer camp … it brings back memories … of some of the best times you ever had as a kid. Now that you’re all grown up, especially if you have kids too, summer is the perfect time to get nostalgic and host a camp out in your backyard. With teepees, of course, and handmade s’mores (no campfire needed).

Viva Summer!

Nothing says summer like strawberry watermelon margaritas, and a Mexican fiesta by the beach, lake or wherever you adventure. Genius hacks like a seven-layer dip in a cup and portable bite-sized cake pops make it deliciously easy.
