Having a backyard party soon? No worries, we got you covered! Visit https://www.greenlightbooking.com for the coolest party bands in town. Have a look at these seven backyard party ideas.
- Light It Up
Lighting makes everything look way better if you are having a party at night time. Buy some string lights and then wrap them around the trees in your backyard. It will not take long to set everything up, and they will be shining all night long. You can also get some helium balloons if you want your party to look extra fancy. Buy mini leads from some party-supply store and pop one in the bottom of every balloon when you blow it up. Group together a few balloons to maximize the starlit effect.
- S’mores Bar
No outdoor bash is complete without s’mores. Get some marshmallow sticks and attractively set them. Set up an s’mores bar that has marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate. Place some hand wipes nearby, too, just in case. This is a huge time-saver and also looks quite creative.
If you want to add some more color to your party, lay ribbons across the table in contrasting colors to make a stunning tablecloth.
One thing that everyone looks forward to while going to a party is food. Don’t let your guests go hungry and place some snacks on the tables. If you want to keep it healthy, you can chop up vegetables and put them in pretty jars, bowls, or glass vases of different sizes and heights. Set up DIY food bars because it will take the pressure off serving and guests will be able to create their own meals. For a Taco Bar, you can offer grilled chicken and meat, shrimp, salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, lettuce, hot sauce, and blue corn nachos. If you want a Burger Bar, then serve some turkey, tuna, and beef. On the side, place small buns, sliced tomatoes, bibb lettuce, onions, pickles, cheese, condiments, and chips.
To set up a homely environment, you can opt for blooming flowers because the scent can play a major role in creating a welcoming atmosphere. Garnish your drinks with barely smoldering cinnamon sticks or rosemary sprigs. Tossing a few fresh herbs on the grill will create a scentscape that will perfume the air.
If you are throwing a casual party, you can get creative. For example, you can mix and match multiple types of chairs and arrange them around a simple table. You can decorate the tables with fresh flowers or vegetables and fruits. Using umbrellas to decorate your backyard is a really creative idea. Pick colorful ones because they will add color to your outdoor setting.
Ice-cold bubbly is nothing short of heavenly on a hot night. Chill well and pour over one or two scoops of mango or strawberry sorbet and serve it with a spoon.
With the help of these inspirations, make your backyard party comfortable and fresh to look at.
