Now that it is summer, the outdoor entertaining season is in full swing. From grad parties, holidays, birthdays to just for fun summer parties, there is always some reason to get outside and gather with friends and family. When throwing a backyard fiesta, it is important to do some planning and think about things such as your backyard party theme, your outdoor entertaining space, and what kind of food to serve to your backyard guests. Check out some of our favorite backyard party ideas:

Backyard Theme

When hosting a backyard party, it is important to pick out a theme as it creates a balanced atmosphere and brings all the elements of a party together perfectly outdoors. By doing this, your backyard party will be memorable and unique!


Entertaining Backyard Space

Next, it’s important to think about your outdoor space and where you want to place tables and chairs for guests, entertaining tables for food and drinks, outdoor games, casual sitting areas, and some decorations. When throwing a party it’s always a great idea to have some fun yard games. Bags or croquet are classic games that will work for any party, but you can also get creative with more active games such as giant jenga or badminton depending on the environment. It’s also a great idea to decorate your party. Aside from matching party ware, some of our favorite party decorations are hanging lights if the party falls into the evening, and fun signage for any party logistics such as parking, the menu, or games.



Food is the most important element to a backyard party! When throwing a backyard BBQ party, grilling is essential. It is good to keep in mind how many people you will be feeding as well as what you are best at and enjoy cooking the most for both the adults and kids as well. Have a Smore’s Bar, country lemonade stand, and some yummy Texas BBQ!


Backyard BBQ’s and parties are summer staples, so make the most of your outdoor space by inviting friends over to enjoy it with you! Take a dip in your pool, soak the night away in your Hot Spring Spa and cheers to a safe and fun summer fiesta!
