Summertime is the best time of the year to throw those fantastic and memorable house parties. What makes a summer party even more impressive is smartly upgrading your home to accommodate the guests and tweaking the décor a bit to make it more party friendly. We have put together a list of some fun and easy tricks that you can use to change your home into the perfect party den for the summer. Here’s everything you need to know:
Beach Style Summer Candles
A great way to add to the décor of your party is by placing candles around your home. Candles can give your home and the party atmosphere a classy and upscale vibe. If you want to add a little bit of a beach style vibe to your candles, there are tons of ideas in which you can be creative. Fill up mason jars with sand and gorgeous seashells and place the tea light candles inside the pot. You can also be creative with your candleholders and stick shells and starfish on them to give them a more summery vibe.
Make Centrepieces Out Of Common Objects
Who says you need to spend large sums of money on centerpieces for your party décor? You can use the simplest of daily objects and items and transform them into affordable yet attractive centerpieces. For instance, you can transform soda bottles into vases. Just clean out the bottle thoroughly, fill them with water and add daisies or carnations in the containers. You can also get beautiful pieces of driftwood from the beach, dry the wood, apply a coat of varnish and use the driftwood as a centerpiece.
Use Faux Landscaping Products To Liven Up Your Home
Another brilliantly effective and affordable way to transform your home for your summer parties is by installing artificial indoor palm trees and outdoor palm tree options. You can decorate your backyard and porch with artificial bamboo tree options. You can also get artificial coconut palm trees for your backyard or driveway. Some fun indoor plant and tree options that are worth considering include artificial kentia palm tree, paradise palm tree, artificial ponytail palm tree and so on.
Go Crazy With Light Options
Using light to transform the décor of your home can give the surroundings a fun party feel. You can get several different kinds of lighting options. Some affordable lighting ideas include:
- String lights or rice lights can be used to decorate the porch, backyard, and outdoor trees.
- Japanese lanterns are an excellent option for your home décor too. Not only will these lanterns add charm to the area, but they will also give your home a very Oriental and ethnic vibe.
- Colour changing garden lights can also be an excellent option for your home. These lights will make your home look more colorful and fun. They can either be hung or placed on a stable surface. Such lights typically come in 7 changing colors.
Place Seating Arrangements And Tables Under Shade
If you’re planning on having a sundowner or an outdoor lunch party, you need to make sure that the tables and chairs are placed in such a way that your guests don’t have the sun burning down on them. You can either set up the table under a thick tree, or you can consider investing in large outdoor umbrellas that can provide proper shade to your guests. If you live in a city that has exceptionally hot summers, you can get a canopy roof or a canvas roof installed in your backyard to protect friends and guests from the baking heat.
Balloons Are A Fun And Affordable Option
No matter how old you get, you’re never too old for balloons. Balloons can decorate large parts of your home and add life, color, and vibrancy to the area. You can get a wide range of colored balloons, or you can get balloons in just two colors for a themed party and so on.
Make Use Of Old Wooden Crates
Storage for drinks and beverages can become a nuisance when you’re having a party at home. Your refrigerator may not be big enough to store all the bottles. A smart and affordable way to bring more storage space for bottles is by converting old wooden crates into drink containers. You can fill up the boxes with ice and store the bottles in these crates.
Use Streamers And Confetti
Using streamers is a great way to decorate the walls in your home for a party. You can hang the streamers in a color-coordinated scheme from ceiling to floor. Alternatively, you can also creatively twist the streamers and stick them on either side of the wall. Confetti can be used to add a little bit of bling and color to your floor. Just cover your floors with confetti to give your home that celebratory vibe.
Terrariums Can Be Placed On Tables At Your Home
Terrariums filled with sand, pebbles, cacti, succulents, candles and other such fun and captivating items can be used to decorate the coffee tables and side tables in your home. You can make the terrariums yourself by filling up the glass bowls with items of your choice, or you can purchase readymade terrariums from your local nursery or décor store.
Decorate Your Home As Per The Theme Of The Party
If you’re having a themed party, you can decorate your home as per the theme. For instance, you can use carved pumpkins and paper machete ghosts and witches for a Halloween party. On the other hand, you can use garlands and wildflowers for the décor of your party when throwing a Hawaiian theme party and so on.
As you can see, these few simple tricks can transform your home entirely and make it a party-ready space for the summer. These affordable ideas are fun, unique, easy to incorporate and your guests will most definitely love them.
