Summer Lovin' Havin' A Blast

With summer just starting for most people, it is the perfect time to gather with friends, have some drinks, lounge by the pool, and enjoy a night out without the kids. Themed parties are an easy way to have your décor, appetizers, and drinks presented in a unique way! Remember: your party doesn’t have to have a theme, but it sure makes a fun night even better! Below are some theme ideas to get you started: 

1. Tacos and Tequila:
  • Have fun with color! Red & yellow, with pops of green & orange will add flair. Drink umbrellas are a cute touch, as well as a piñata, and fun music! 
  • Food & Drinks: You can’t go wrong with a taco bar. Allow guests to make burritos, bowls, wraps, etc. and provide options. For drinks, be sure to have tequila on hand. Besides the obvious margaritas, guests can also indulge in fun recipes that you get creative with! Try mixing tequila with lemonade and lime juice for a fun twist!
  • Have maracas, sombreros, candy, and fun lighting to really make the night go out with a bang! 

2. Sail Away:
  • This theme has endless possibilities. Your décor can range from red, white, and blue color combos with anchors and if you don’t want ten sailors dressed at your party, allow guests to wear fun bathing suits, leis, etc. 
  • Food & Drinks: Try to serve a variety of foods in super cute boats. Shrimp boats, veggie boats, etc. are all fun! Serve your drinks with flags and garnishes to keep the theme flowing. Jello shots in a fruit wedge with a flag would be a super fun way to showcase your yummies! We suggest a signature drink {always} and for a Sail Away theme, a Salty Dog with run and grapefruit juice is just perfect! 

3. Coney Island: 
  • This theme is pretty self-explanatory and probably the easiest theme to pull off. Any color combos will do, and as long as you have a grill at hand to cook your dogs, it’s a pretty easy night.
  • Food & Drinks: The obvious: coney dogs. Be sure to provide sides like salads, chips, fries, etc. Fruit is a sweet touch to the menu! Since this is a more casual theme, drinks should be basic with beers and maybe a tropical twist. Try Hawaiian punch and vodka, garnished with an orange slice.
  • This theme can have a Hawaiian touch to it if you would like. Allow guests to wear tropical clothing and straw hats. Be sure to use a tan linen on your table and some seashells as tabletop décor to keep the island theme.
4,  Light the Night
  • For a truly awesome and unique theme, make the party start a little later and use the moonlight to party under! Mason jars, glow sticks, and sparklers are sure-fire winners!
  • Food & Drinks: Keep food simple by firing up the grill with burgers and chicken kabobs. Have lots of snack foods and popcorn for late night munchies! For drinks, remember moonshine is great in mason jars and tonic water adds a little light to your cocktail!
So there you have it! Some fun cocktail party theme ideas to get your summer started right! Remember to drink responsibly, laugh a lot, and enjoy a good time!
