I am Crystal from Coffee at Nordstrom.
I am so thankful that Valerie has allowed me to guest post for her while she is away on vacation with her husband! I am less than 3 weeks away from getting married and I will be moving from Ohio to Arizona! Huge change! This summer is going to be full any many first for me. One of them being having my own home and being able to throw a summer party with great friends!
Everyone loves a fun party! I am going to share with you how to plan the Perfect Summer Party!
First, you will want to pick a theme! I am a huge chevron/quatrefoil fan, so many parties that I throw have that theme!
But there are many other themes that you could chose from!
Here are a few Party Theme ideas for you!
Throw a Mexican Fiesta
Host a Movie Night
Once you have selected a theme, you can run with it! Invitations and decorations really make it or break it for a party! The invitation sets the tone, and the decorations help keep everyone in tune with the style of the party!
Make sure you have fun labels on each different food item and drink that you are serving as well! Also-when naming each different food, be sure to throw in a little "theme" twist to the name! Renaming different foods is completely acceptable when throwing a wonderful party with friends!
The most important party of the party always is the food! Whether you have your guest bring their favorite food, or you cook everything, the food is always going to be superb! Try to serve food that goes along with your theme! For example: if you are throwing a fiesta, serve tacos and salsa; if you are throwing a movie night, serve popcorn and a fun drink.
If I were throwing a Fiesta...
If I were throwing a Mustache Party...
Mustache Cookies and Milk
If I were hosting a Movie Night...
Lastly, be sure to invite the ones closest to you!
Make memories that will last you a lifetime!
What kind of party are you throwing this summer?
Thank again, Valerie!
