If you’re like most of us, you can’t wait for summer to get here. Well, we’ve been prepping for the summer months too. As an event planner in Lowell, IN, summer is our busiest month, and our calendar fills up fast with graduation parties, reunions and weddings. While every event we plan is unique, there are some party themes that are the most popular at this time of the year, and we’d like to share those ideas with you for a little summertime party inspiration!

We all scream for ice cream

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love ice cream. With a wide variety of flavors, toppings and fixings to choose from, ice cream is a cloud pleaser at any event. So why not make ice cream the theme for your summer party? You can do an ice cream social, an old-fashioned 1950s ice cream shop or whatever you think might be fun. The key is that ice cream is the VIP of this theme.

Finger-lickin’ goodness

You’re going to need extra napkins on hand for this theme. A classic favorite and always a crowd pleaser, a barbecue is the ultimate summer get together. Barbecues work for every kind of party, even weddings. You just need to know how to serve up some finger-lickin’ goodness. Pig roasts are a popular thing right now. You can literally center your whole party around the main event: the pig. Barbecue food trucks are another fun way to serve up delicious favorites. No matter what your style, you can find a barbecue that will please everyone.

Catching some rays

You don’t need to be on the beach to have a beach party. You can easily transform your backyard or any venue into a beach escape with the right décor and menu. Seashells, leis and a few beach-themed treats can make an ordinary backyard get-together into an unforgettable beach party that the neighbors will be raving about all year long.

Back to the woods

There’s no tent required, unless you want one, for a camping-themed party. Most campgrounds have event areas you can rent out for a day for the perfect camping party, or you can create a campground in your own backyard with a campfire pit, some lanterns and some fun camping treats like s’mores. Camping parties are fun for guests of every age!

Pink flamingo

More than just the name of a fruity drink, a pink flamingo is a whimsical party theme as well. Think Hawaiian luau for this party-theme. Get some unusual fruits added to your fruit tray, some coconuts, a few leis for party favors and tiki torches—and don’t forget the flamingos—and you are well on your way to a fun and unique pink flamingo party that will bring out everyone’s fun side.
We hope some of these themes have inspired you to start planning your perfect summer party. If you need some extra help, be sure to call on Signature Banquets, your local event planner in Lowell, IN!
