Summer is the best time to throw a party. If you're thinking of organizing one, check out these four, great summer party ideas from BentallGreenOak Residential Services.
Summery Brunch At Home In Your Apartment
If you want to throw a daytime party this summer, consider organizing a summer weekend brunch in your apartment. It will cost you less than hosting a dinner party or going out for brunch, and you can make restaurant-quality food right in the comfort of your home. Opt to serve something classic like Breakfast Pancakes with maple syrup and fresh berries. It never gets old, plus who doesn't like pancakes? For drinks, serve coffee and mimosas -- which are perfect on a hot summer day! If you don't feel like making pancakes, another great option would be Eggs Benedict. It's another classic everyone will love!
Throw A Clambake
If you're looking for an interesting party idea, try throwing a Clambake party at the beach. It's a traditional way of steaming seafood and usually involves lobster, crabs, mussels and seaweed. The whole process can be a lot of work, but the food will taste amazing and it's a unique experience. If you don't have access to a beach, you can always make it at home. Check out this delicious Sheet Pan Clambake recipe that you can make in your apartment. This is also a great idea for birthday and engagement parties!
Potlucks are amazing for so many reasons. First of all, it's a group effort, so there is no designated chef and no pressure on anyone to make all the food. Second of all, it's exciting to see what everyone is going to bring! This is why a potluck picnic could be the best summer party idea ever. The best way to organize one is to assign dishes to each person, so you don't wind up getting the same dish from every guest. Try shareable recipes like these: Bacon Guacamole, Gluten-free Veggie Pizza, Ham and Cheese Croissant Sliders and Lemon Artichoke Pasta Salad.
Summer Cocktail Hour In Your Apartment
You don't always have to go out for a great cocktail. Next time the craving strikes, organize a cocktail hour party in your apartment. Move your furniture off to the side to create extra space for guests to mingle. If you're feeling creative, come up with a cool summer theme. To keep things simple, plan ahead and pick a few drinks to serve. How about mojitos and sangria? Be sure to put some snacks out as well, but don't overcomplicate things. Nuts, cheese and crackers will be just fine.
With these awesome suggestions from BentallGreenOak, there's no doubt you'll throw the best summer party.
