Hello June! How about welcoming summer with an outdoor gathering? Whether you are honoring a recent graduate or a terrific Dad, June is a great time to have a cocktail party. Keep it simple. Put some burgers and dogs on the grill and crank up the tunes. The weather this time of year is perfect for hanging out with all your favorite people.
Invite your friends and family to enjoy the outdoors by offering up a variety of lawn games. Bocce Ball, Badminton, Horseshoes, Frisbee, Cornhole and Croquet are games everyone can play. Entertain the kids with bubbles, beach balls, a sprinkler or a Slip ’n Slide.
Socializing outdoors has long been one of man’s favorite past times. Try setting up tables in separate areas around the lawn and/or patio, place drinks in one area, appetizers and desserts in another to encourage guests to roam. Be sure to stock the bar with all the essentials; cups, ice, swizzle sticks, wine, beer, liquor and mixers. Set up a lemonade and ice-cold water stand to keeps guests hydrated.
Consider featuring a few summer cocktails, such as fruity Sangrίas, minty Mojίtos, Long Island Iced Teas or Vodka Lemonades. Have an ice-cold keg offering up your guest’s favorite beer. If your party is going to continue after sundown, provide ambient lighting by draping paper lanterns from tree limbs, lighting citronella candles and/or string lights. A circle of chairs around a fire pit is also a great way to encourage conversation while sipping on a refreshing cocktail.
As the host, you should do your best to make your event looks effortless. Avoid making it too complicated. After all, you should be having fun too. Prep as much ahead of time as possible. A little forethought and preparation can help you be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the party.
