5 Outdoor Entertaining Tips For Summer

The decks are power-washed, gas grills are fueled up, and the warm weather is here to stay. All thats left is to invite over everyone you want to enjoy the heat with. Here are five tips for makings sure your outdoor hosting goes off without a hitch this summer.

 

1.) Weatherproof Your Decor

Even the most prepared hostess can get caught by unpredictable strong summer breezes or the rain shower that was most certainly not in the forecast. You should select decor such as table cloths and centerpieces that can not only stand to get wet, but are also heavy enough or weighted down enough to withstand a little wind.

By doing this you will ensure not only that nothing will be ruined should that phantom rain cloud pass over head, but also that your guests don’t have to scramble to help you get things inside or chase them across the yard.

 

2.) Create A Laid Back Dining Atmosphere

Summer is exceptionally crazy. Little league games go into extra innings, drives home from vacation take too long, and yard work sessions turn into marathons–everyone’s schedules become everything but dependable

As such, you should create an atmosphere where guests arriving at any time feel like they haven’t missed anything and aren’t being intrusive by being hungry. Keeping the grill running with grilling accessories on standby, buffet style dining, and spread out seating are all great ways to ensure that your hospitality is a constant in a season full of variables.

 

3.) Be Ready To Win The Bug Battle

Even if you plan to have things wrapping up before the bugs get too bad, you never know when an evening might turn into a night. Always be prepared to keep your guests comfortable if those buzzing pests try to join the party. Tiki torch perimeters, scattered mosquito repellant coils, and fogging the area ahead of time are all great options to keep your outdoor kitchen as bug-free as your indoor. It also never hurts to have a couple bottles of spray-on repellant on hand. Especially if they’re will be kids running around outside of your bug proof perimeter.

 

4.) Make Games Available, But Not Forced

Some people can’t be outside without playing some kind of game, whether it’s bean bag toss, horseshoes, or cards. Others want to socialize without competing. By having games set up where they can be seen and are clearly there to be used, but not making them the centerpieces of your layout, you will make both parties happy. Those who wish to play will find them, a those who don’t will not feel pressured.

 

5.) Give The Party Room To Grow

You’re so good at entertaining that your guests aren’t going to want to leave right after they’ve eaten and more will probably show up. Be prepared for this by having areas ready for the gathering to expand and flow.

For example, if the primary gathering area is the back patio but you also have a fire-pit nearby, have it ready with wood and chairs. Make sure that any area that can be utilized is ready for your guests to enjoy. The ebb and flow of a summer gathering can be unpredictable. Whether more people show up or the party just wants to migrate elsewhere you will be ready.

Easy Ways to Personalize a Childs Party

Birthday parties are a special memory for both children and their parents. Every moment, presents and party hats and blowing out the candles there are all memories that everyone will treasure. All mom’s and das want ot do something special for their children to commemorate another year of a precious life. Sometimes it’s the big gestures, and others it’s just the little things that make it special.

The Birthday Song – The traditional “Happy Birthday” tune is a classic. But why not take it a step further with an original song for the birthday boy or girl. It’s not very expensive but it’s sure to buy a lot of smiles. It’s actually surprisingly easy to order a CD or even just an MP3 with a specially personalized tune that mentions your child by name.

Games – There are plenty of popular party games for kids of all ages. But when you personalize the games to honor a special kid it makes them unique. Turn Pin the Tail on the Donkey into Pin the Hat on the Birthday Child. With a blown-up photo and some construction paper it’s an easy transformation. Have the kids create their own hats for the game to add another activity to the festivities. You can also take a kid’s favorite game like Candy Land or Chutes and Ladders and bring them to life with giant confections or an inflatable slide.

Quiet Games – Down time at a kid’s birthday party seems like a fool’s dream. But a few quiet games sure can help. For younger kids, turn photos of the birthday child into coloring pages or they can color pictures of the host child’s favorite things. Create a coloring table with lots of crayons and encourage kids to put special birthday messages on their drawing. When the party is over, compile the art into a special scrapbook to remember the day. Older kids can be engaged with word games like a contest to see who can make the most words out of the letters in the birthday boy or girl’s name.

Invites and Favors – If you want to open and close the party in a highly personalized way then invitations and favors are perfect. Pre-made invitations are easy to get in packages pretty much anywhere. But you can personalize them with, stickers a rubber stamp or by enclosing photos. Or you can order custom invitations and upload your own message and images. For favors, you can get all kinds of personalized favors that have a name on the wrapper, tag, or bag. It can get expensive to go crazy with embellishing. But one or two emblazoned items in a favor bag will make a big impact.

Decorations - Pretty much all of the decorations have the potential to be customized. The most common personalized touch at any party is a banner. Whether it’s a birthday, graduation, or any other kind of celebration, a sign or vinyl lettering that says “Happy Birthday Tommy” Is the easiest way to make sure your child feels like the center of attention. But in addition to these kinds of overtures, there are other more subtle ways to inject some personalization. From table cloths to, pins, and hats, all of these party staples can be emblazoned with names, initials, images of the child or pictures of a favorite pet or role model.

Entertainment - Speaking of favorite things and role models, entertainment is an easy area to go the extra mile for a child. Clowns, magicians, and balloon animals are all beloved by kids everywhere. But what makes your child glow? Is it a super-hero? Does he like to fight like a knight? Does she dream of being a princess? Are they big fans of dance, or sports? Whatever it is your child loves there’s a good chance you can hire a local performer to help make that childhood fantasy a reality. Well, for a day anyway. When you indulge the passions that are specific to your child it makes the party even more memorable, and shows how much you care about relating to them. It may seem impossible to find the act you’re looking for but places like Craigslist or Gig Masters might be a good place to start.

We all remember our best birthday parties growing up. When we look back as adults we think about exactly what made the party so special. I think it’s the realization of just how hard our parents worked to make us happy. As kids we never quite understand their efforts or how hard they try to make our dreams come true. But someday they will. It’s the little things we can do while they are young that will become the foundation of their happy childhood memories later. So if you want to throw a party your child is sure to remember forever, try any combination of these ideas for personalization. A highly personalized party is sure to make any child’s face light up brighter than a cake full of candles. And when it’s all said and done, that’s wht truly matters most.

Calculating the Amount of Party Food

Ah, parties. Those few precious hours where a roomful of people gather to schmooze, sip on sweet sparkling nothings, and enjoy the bounty of the buffet table. Guests can pile plates with roasted tomato crostini, steak tartar, imported camembert, and sprigs of parsley. The lights are low, the decorations are chic and still in place, and the alcoholic variety is truly astonishing. How did the host or hostess pull off such an evening? A heck of a lot of planning, that’s how.

The Hostess With the Edible Mostest

There’s no need to spend the days preceding your own sans-caterer gathering fretting, fearing, crying, or hiding in the corner with a bottle of scotch and asking yourself why oh why you decided to host Grandma’s eightieth birthday celebration. You may find it easy to pick up party supplies and to choose what exactly you’d like to serve the guests (that’s what Barefoot Contessa’s printable menus are for). Knowing how much food (considering Uncle Harvey will be there) and how much booze to have ready on the big day are what might take a little finagling. With the following cheat sheet and a calculator, however, all things are possible.

The Cocktail Party

Usually held during the after-dinner hours, cocktail parties feature a wide selection of alcoholic refreshment and maybe a few bowls of nuts or simple hors d’oeuvres. For a two-hour fete, plan the following things:

  • Stock up on ice. Figure one pound per guest (12 guests, 12 pounds).
  • Make sure there are three glasses to every guest (12 guests, 36 glasses).
  • Pile up enough napkins so each guest can have at least three (12 guests, 36 napkins or more).
  • Keep in mind that you can get, on average, five to six glassfuls of wine from each bottle.

The Buffet

You can dress up (caviar anyone?) or dress down (your famous cheese dip) buffet food. The route you go will depend on the party you are hosting. Even procrastinators can pull off a successful buffet with the aid of a few Costco platters. Regardless of whether you plan to make or buy your food, keep the following things in mind:

  • Provide enough appetizers so each guest can enjoy about three to five of each type.
  • Plan at least 2 tablespoons per guest for dips (20 guests, 2.5 cups of dip).
  • Purchase enough raw vegetables to get two to four cruditper guest (20 guests, 40 to 80 celery sticks).
  • Allow about a handful of salad greens per guest.
  • Plan on half an ounce of caviar per guest (20 guests, 10 ounces, and a large budget).

Enjoy the Party

These numbers are, after all, guidelines. If you know your cheese dip is going to be the hit of the party, by all means, prepare four tablespoons per guest! A good rule of thumb is to plan for more than you think you’ll need—leftovers make lovely parting gifts anyway. The most important thing to remember is to have a little fun!

Quick and Easy Birthday Party Decorating Ideas

Creating the right ambiance and atmosphere is an important part of throwing a successful birthday party, and there are many different options available when it comes to décor. Whether you are having your party at your home or at a venue you can find simple, quick, affordable, yet very effective decorations that will complement any theme or make any room look welcoming, exciting, and atmospheric.

In order to ensure that you get the right decorations for your party you need to consider who the party is for (e.g. whether it is for a child or an adult) and also whether you have any theme for your party, as if so you can choose decorations that will fit in with your theme. With a vast choice of party decorations and ideas you can bring your home or venue to life with ease, and some of these decorations may not even cost you anything as you can create them yourself!

Decorations for different needs

The basics: You can’t go wrong with the use of basics as a base for your decorations, and this means party banners and balloons. You can get all sorts of balloons these days, from balloons with special picture or messages printed on to balloons containing sparkles. You can also get the in all sorts of colors, and they are inexpensive and very effective. When it comes to banners you can actually do these yourself by printing off the letters for your message and stringing them together, which makes them more personal and colorful than the ones that you buy.

Entrance decoration: If you have any outdoor lights such as fairy lights you can make the entrance to your home or venue enchanting and inviting by putting the lights around the door frame. You can go for multi-coloured lights, white lights, or lights that fit in with the theme, such as green lights if the party is being held close to Halloween. Keep the outdoor decor simple, as you don’t want so many decorations stuck around the entrance that people struggle to get through the door.

Table decorations: Having a table that looks inviting and colorful is a great addition to any party, and yet it is also simple to do. A colorful tablecloth, a few balloons dotted around, and even some colored or themed paper plates, cups, and serviettes can make all the difference to how your table looks and how comfortable people will be when it comes to going up and helping themselves to the food.

Themed decorations: If you are having a themed party, such as a kid’s fancy dress party, you can choose decor that fits in with the theme. You can often get custom decorations made up to fit in with the theme, or for a cheaper option just use generic decorations that are in colors that will suit the theme. For example, if you are having a princess themed party then lots of balloons and decorations in colors such as pinks and whites would be great. You can even customize the decorations yourself with sparkles and glitter to make them really eye-catching.

Low cost props: You don’t want to end up redecorating your whole home in order to make it fit in with the party theme, but a few cheap, simple props will give your room a great finish. For example, a wizards and magic themed party could involve a few broomsticks strategically placed around the room, candy served in cauldrons, and some green lighting around the room to give the room an enchanting and magical aura.

Use what you already have: Don’t be afraid to experiment with decorations that you already have in the home. For instance, there is no rule that says tinsel and fairy lights can only be used at Christmas – dig out the decorations that you already have in the home and see whether there is anything that you can use to fit in with your theme or liven up the look of your home or venue. You can even make use of the spiral curled ribbons that are usually used to decorate wrapped gifts.

Think colors: Setting the mood with your decor isn’t about how much you spend on the decorations – it is about something as simple as choosing the right colors and bringing your room to life with color and sparkle. Go for bright and bold colors, be creative with sparkles and glitter, and even get the kids involved in helping to make or customise decorations.
