5 Summer Party Ideas

Summertime and parties go hand in hand. Whether you're hosting a large family reunion or a small dinner party, kids of all ages are likely to be involved. Set up fun and easy decorations that guests will love.

1. Lay down large sheets of paper as table cloths, use jars of crayons as your centerpieces, and let guests color away! This is just as much fun for adults as it is for kids. Let your guests tear off their creations and take them home. Then throw out the rest for easy clean-up.

2. Put simple white flowers in clear vases and add a drop of food coloring for a bright, fun look.

3. Dress up your silverware (or plasticware) with patterned or colored napkins and keep it all together with colored ribbon, string, or anything else that you can think of.

4. Tie a spoon or fork onto individually portioned snacks so that guests can easily navigate through your party and still be able to enjoy a bite to eat.

5. Remember making paper chains as a kid? They are just as cute now as they were then. Coordinate your paper chains with the rest of your decor. If you have kids, let them help you put them together for a fun family activity.
