Ways to Celebrate the Start of Summer
Summer is just around the corner, and it’s cause for celebration! You made it through the subzero temperatures of winter, the spring mud, and soon you’ll get to enjoy those long, summer days and cool, relaxing nights. If you can’t decide how to celebrate, here are three tried and true ideas.
Plan a Pool Party
Whether you have a pool in your backyard or simply make use of a neighborhood pool, nothing says summer quite like a pool party. Pool parties take very little work because the entertainment is already covered. Just add some music, a few fun decorations, and you’re done! If you want to take it to the next level, hire a food truck to come out and cater your event. Nothing pleases a crowd like a good food truck. Best of all, you don’t have to spend a single second in the kitchen!
Throw a Block Party
The beauty of a block party is that, once you get the neighborhood there, you don’t have to do a thing. Block parties are really just a way of celebrating the chance to be together. You can meet new neighbors, reconnect with old friends, and let the kids run around while you relax. The only real requirement for a block party is good food. You can always go potluck style, but why make people cook when they should be enjoying a night off? Find a local food truck or two that are willing to show up with the promise of feeding a host of hungry people. Just let your neighbors know ahead of time so they can bring money.
Host an Outdoor Movie Night
You don’t need much to host an outdoor movie night. Just a good place to fit your neighbors, friends, and family, plus a projector and a large white backdrop. If you have a screen, great! If not, a white sheet will do the trick. There is something magical about watching a movie outside with a bunch of people, even if everyone has seen the movie a million times. To make your event even more magical, bring in a local food truck! Consider choosing a truck that serves up fun, snacky-type foods.
Summer deserves a celebration. Plus, you deserve it! Everyone needs a chance to let their hair down and just have fun now and then. Don’t let this summer pass you by without getting your friends and family together, whether it is a pool party, a block party, an outdoor movie night, or your own original idea.
Remember, the best way to take your party to the next level is to bring out a food truck. Few things say party like amazing food with a fun atmosphere. If you aren’t convinced, click here for some more reasons why food trucks are simply the best!
