Summer is a lovely time to have people over for a good time. The pleasant weather helps create a more casual atmosphere, so hosting something in the summer is never short of fun. Here are some ideas we rounded up when having a summer gathering:
1. Get grillin': Nothing says summer more than firing up the grill! Having a barbecue also allows the host to do a lot of the work ahead of time. Prepare salads, skewers, and all the fixings the night before, to have more time to mingle with friends and family. This can also be a great idea for condo dwellers with a barbecue amenity in their building.
2. Lighten up: Add some lighting to your gathering for a nice ambience once the sun sets. Lighting can be used in your backyard or balcony. If your party is indoors, you can still add string lights inside as a way to bring the outdoors in.
3. Have a refresher: Keep people hydrated in the warm weather with a variety of beverages. Make it fun and feature your own cocktail and mock-tail recipes!
4. Go bright: Get creative with vibrant colours in your decor and table setting. Add florals for extra pops of colour too.
