With temperatures reaching above 32, that’s 90 in ‘old money’, it’s safe to say that summer has arrived. So, to help you get ready for that all important summertime party, here’s a quick list of 5 tips to help you organise an awesome festival themed party for the whole family to enjoy.
So grab the paddling pool, get the BBQ ready, and get some party bag fillers for the little ones, because this summer party is going to be awesome.
Check The Weather Forecast
Whilst wet and muddy festivals can be lots of fun, do you really want all your party guests getting all that mud on their shoes and inside your lovely clean home? So, make sure you check the weather forecast and pick a date that’s expecting nice weather.
Plan The Music
What summer festival themed party has no music? You need some great tunes for the party and thanks to our 21st century society; music streaming services have removed the awkwardness of organising a mix tape. If you’re unsure what too add to the playlist, ask each party guest to add around 10 songs they like to a playlist, or if your choice of music streaming app provides curated playlists, you could pick a readymade playlist saving yourself time.
Keep The Food Simple
Festivals are about people coming together, so there’s no need to go extra fancy with the food. A great way to enhance the community atmosphere of the party is to organise it as a pot luck party. Ask every guest to contribute food and drink to the party, taking care to ensure that any important allergy or intolerance information is shared. This is similar to a ‘bring your own’ style party, but instead of brining your own drinks and food, everyone shares with each other, which helps to start conversations, recipes are shared, stories are exchanged; it helps to serve as a catalyst as the community grows together.
Make Sure The Guests Keep Cool
Whilst the sun is enjoyable, it’s important to make sure that everyone at the party in aware of the dangers associated with the summertime heat. Firstly, it is very important that everyone stays hydrated, so make sure that here is easily accessible water for all the guests. Additionally, it’s important to not forget about sun cream. Some of the party guests may have forgotten to apply sun cream, so it’s a good idea to keep some sun protection products on hand in case anyone needs to reapply their sun protection.
Finally it’s very important that you remain alert to the dangers of heatstroke. If the individual in question doesn’t cool down within 30 minutes, the condition is considered an emergency. Some of the signs include cramps in arms, legs, and stomach, excessive sweating, dizziness and confusion, a temperature above 38c, and children may also become floppy and sleepy. If you notice any of these signs in an adult or a child at the party, make sure they drink plenty of water, move to a cool place, and if they are not cooling down and feeling better within 30 minutes, call 999.
