How To Plan A Summer Party: Inflatable Rentals, Water Slides & Outdoor Movies

Jun 9, 2008
The end of the school season is approaching and that means fun summer parties! Planning a party can sometimes be so overwhelming that families avoid throwing them. That doesn't have to be the case this summer - often it is the simplest parties that are the most successful!

While a summer party is fun, they can also be a great way to reconnect with neighbors and school friends, break up a summer full of sports, vacations and camp, and spend quality time celebrating with your family.

By following some simple suggestions, such as including inflatable rentals, water slides, and outdoor movies in your plan, your party is sure to be an easy success. Plan your party around a specific big-ticket item, such as an inflatable obstacle course, to get the party-goers excited.

Invitations

Get things started by sending out invitations early. Have children create their own construction paper invitations or get creative and hand deliver balloons with invitations inside, cupcakes with save-the-date information on the icing, or hand-made adventure park admission tickets that children can present to access one of the inflatable rentals at your party.

The most important thing is to let people know the date of the party, the time and any special instructions required - like wearing a bathing suit!

Food

Food and beverages don't have to be extravagant - consider finger foods, pizza and outdoor classics such as hamburgers and hot dogs. Just remember to make it fun and easy to clean up! An outdoor party in the summer is an excellent time to break out popsicles for the kids and fresh fruit like watermelon or peaches.

Another option, an ice cream sundae bar equipped with fixings such as ice cream, candy toppings and chocolate sauce, is a sweet end to any meal. Drinks can be as simple as pitchers of lemonade or a cooler filled with water bottles or cans of soda.

Inflatable Rentals

Once the food and snacks are planned out, consider entertainment options. Inflatable rentals are a big hit with children of all ages, and adults are even able to partake in the fun! Allow children to slide down inflatable slides, navigate through inflatable obstacle courses, or test out their champion skills in an inflatable boxing ring - the options for outdoor inflatable rentals are limitless!

Nighttime

After a tiring day playing in the inflatable rentals, wind down the party with a number of outdoor movie options. Viewing screens that project movies on an inflatable surface are sure to be a crowd pleaser. Set up a viewing area outside and pick from a variety of children's movies, along with classic movie snacks like popcorn and gummy worms, to end the night. Provide blankets and lawn chairs for everyone to relax and make sure there are flashlights or outside lamps so that everyone is safe.

The options are unlimited when it comes to planning a spring party. Ensure that a detailed checklist is set up to guarantee that inflatable rentals will be at the party, the movie is picked out, and the food is prepared for the day of the party. After that, sit back, relax, and have fun!
