Summer is right around the corner and will be here before we know it. Hot days turning into cooler nights will have you making a bee-line for the backyard! With our fun backyard entertaining ideas for summer, throwing a summer party for family and friends will be a breeze.
- Game On: Start a little friendly competition with your guests by bringing out lawn games. Cornhole is a crowd favorite and perfect for guests of all ages. Another classic game that will get the competition going is Jumbo Jenga. You can purchase the human-size game or make your own with scrap wood. No matter the size of your backyard, these games are sure to be a hit with friends and family!
- Movie Night: There’s nothing more classic than a movie night. Take advantage of beautiful summer nights by setting up blankets, chairs, a projector, and your favorite movie. If you do not have a projector screen, a strung up white sheet will do the trick! Elevate movie snacks with a DIY popcorn snack bar with various popcorn flavors, candy, and pretzels. Then sit back and enjoy a night under the stars.
- Fire It Up: Not all summer nights are going to be warm. Keep the entertainment going on cooler nights by bringing friends and family together around a fire pit. Gather up graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate bars, and skewers for a sure way to please the crowd with s’mores. A fire pit is a creative way to elevate the look of your backyard with all the different styles and sizes available. Once the seasons transition, a fire pit is a great way to entertain year-round!
