Step 1: Pick your day

People are busy in the summer as well so don’t be disappointed if some people can’t make it but the weekend is usually the best time to plan an event. Saturday night’s are alright for a good time!

Step 2: Pick a theme

Whether you want to go casual or specifically themed to something, get party supplies. For more casual parties, the main supplies are food + drinks and maybe minimal decorations such as fairy lights.
For a themed party, you want to get the essential decor, food, and drinks that match it. If not it can throw off the entire idea of the party but it’s totally up to you.

Some easy themes are:

Neon

Neon is a trending theme generally in summer. Bright green, pink, orange, red cups, napkins, bright fruits and vegetables, and a cute backdrop for an instagram photoshoot.

Game Night

Grab some of your favorite groups of friends and get them to bring their favorite board game. The night should get interesting as more games are played and the intensity increases.

High School Stereotypes

Everyone comes dressed up either jocks, cheerleaders, nerds, geeks, hipsters, etc and act like them for one night. Maybe you’ll get more than you bargained for…

Pajama Party

Pineapple Wrapped Bacon (8min)

Simple as it sounds. Cut up pieces of pineapple and wrap them in bacon! Broil, flip half way, and crisp until perfection.

Cheese Quesadillas (10min)

Very quick, simple and plentiful for all. Take 2 tortilla wraps and place shredded cheese between them, melt and serve.

Mini Pizzas (20mins)

Pizza+Party= My Newest Boyfriend! This recipe calls for baguette bread or italian bread, ½ cup pasta sauce, ⅛ pound of pepperoni or salami, 1 cup spinach, 1 cup mozza cheese, and ½ cup parmesan cheese.
Heat your oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit. Place bread on a baking sheet and spread sauce over top side of bread then add cheese. Bake for 5-7mins until melted.
