Summer birthday party ideas are one of the most popular theme ideas for celebrating kids’ or adults’ birthday. Some great examples include the summer picnic party, summer pool party, summer beach party, or even a backyard summer party.
A birthday party in the summer offers a myriad of possibilities for getting out into the sunshine to celebrate. Using a park or your backyard as the party location eliminates the need for a lot of decorating, as the outdoors becomes the backdrop for the party. Of course a backyard barbeque is always appropriate for celebrating a birthday, but a couple of traditional summer favorites like carnivals or picnics can be used as themes for memorable parties for all ages
You can’t think of summertime without thinking of the ocean. Style your party with an under-the-sea theme and decorate accordingly. For example, hang some fishermen’s nets around the party space, from doorways and ceilings. Place some plastic fish inside the nets and cover light sources with blue cellophane to give the rooms an aqua color. Blow up some blue and green balloons with helium and let them float up to the ceiling. For refreshments, make everything ocean-themed. Eat seafood like grilled salmon or crab cakes and desserts made of blue or green gelatin. Play games that have a sea theme, like Piranha Ball. Players surround the inside perimeter of the pool and link hands. A ball floats in the middle of the pool and guests have to avoid getting touched by the piranha, though they can’t break hands. Play some ocean trivia games, as well.
