Hooray for Summer!

SSPWebVersionIt’s been a long, cold winter…a lovely but rainy spring…and now summer is just around the corner: 

Hip, Hip Hooray!!!

If you are like me, the longer, sunny days are the absolute best part of summer. So, here is one more reason to connect with friends and family – the longest day of the year, Summer Solstice, is just around the corner. June 21st to be exact. And we actually get a 2 for 1 this year…it’s also Father’s day. What better reasons to have a party. 

Here is all you need:

  • A yummy but simple menu – Girls, take charge of the grill. Throw on some burgers and dogs while the dads relax with an ice cold beer. This will actually be really fun with your best girlfriends around to help.
  • Your favorite wine – the best part of any party – next to your favorite girlfriends
  • Water balloons, croquet, Frisbees, snacks for the kids – they will have a blast playing together and since you are in your own backyard, no “shushing” needed.
  • A great “summer-time” play list on your iPod – this will be almost as much fun to listen to as it will be to put together. Come on, who doesn’t just absolutely LOVE to put themed play lists together?
  • A few citronella candles – especially if you live in the South.

Thats it…you are all set for the best summer solstice party ever. And I bet, you will have so much fun you will start referring to it as  your ANNUAL summer solstice party.

And to give you a few additional ideas for party options, check out these fabulous blogs:

The Party Dress :

Here are some great ideas from The Party Dress if you want to give your Summer Solstice party a little “fiesta theme” or have more fun when the sun goes down with an outdoor Movie night.



Or, how about a Candyland theme – you know I love this one as I have offered it up before. This is from Hostess with the Mostess and I just love the fun colors, sweet treats and all around “summery-ness” of this party idea.

So raise your glass, give a cheer, Hip, Hip Hooray – Summer is Here!
