Serve your snacks like a champion


Great summer parties need plenty of great summer food. There are plenty of clever and creative ways you can serve up the classics this summer.


First, Walking Tacos by Saving Dollars & Sense is a perfect example of keeping it simple yet having fun with the presentation. The idea is to serve your tacos inside a snack sized Doritos or Fritos bag. You definitely bag plenty of flavor with this trick!

Another cool idea for serving summer party snacks is utilizing ice cream cones. However, you will be skipping the ice cream. Instead, fill your cones with fruit and berries and a tasty sauce, such as caramel or chocolate.


There’s another light dessert idea. Take oranges and cut them in half. Scoop out the fruit and fill the empty halves with sorbet!


Movies or music under the stars


Set up a white fabric outside; hang it on the wall or between a few trees. Rent or buy a projector for an outdoor movie night. Now you just need a few extension cords and your laptop to set up an outdoor movie theatre. Bring out foldable chairs or blankets for your guests to enjoy the night.

If you want, you can even use the projector to show music videos at your garden party. It adds a really funky element to the night in terms of dancing. You can even use the idea for your Hudson Valley wedding. It’ll be cute and romantic to play videos from both of your childhoods on a continuous loop!


Green screen photo booth fun


Now photo booths are always mentioned when talking about unique summer party ideas. It’s not a surprise – you get to make long-lasting memories and let your hair down with friends. This summer, you must get in touch with a Hudson Valley photo booth company and book yourself a magic mirror photo booth with a green screen. Yes, the photo booth comes with an optional green screen that allows you to add any sort of backdrop to your photos. This will take your themed summer parties to a totally next level.

Glow in the dark garden games


You don’t need it to be all light outside in order to play fun garden games. In fact, you can make it all just a bit more unique by taking garden games like ring toss, pétanque and croquet and treating the equipment with glow-in-the-dark paint. As the darkness falls, your lawn games will light up the garden and you can still have a great time in the warm summer night. You should hang a few additional lanterns around and serve some hot chocolate or tomato soup to your party guests to warm up.
