Keep Your Summer Party Guests Cool

June 05, 2019

You've picked the theme, you've invited the guests, and they've saved the date. Now what? Make sure your guests can enjoy your party without getting overheated. Nothing can put a damper on a summer party quite like a sweat stain. So, put down the tiki torches and read on to find out how to have a sweat-free summer bash.

Party All Night Long

…Or at least through some of the night. It's no secret that temperatures drop when the sun goes down. Add some outdoor lighting and voilà: your guests are cool and comfortable.

Create a Hydration Station

Guests enjoying beer, wine, or soda can become dehydrated as the night goes on. Put bottles of water in the coolers or buckets alongside your other beverages. If you'd like to go for an eco-friendlier option, you can fill up pitchers with ice and filtered water. (Need a faucet upgrade? We can help.)

Use the Shade You Have, or Create the Shade You Need

If you're fortunate to have large trees or covered porches in your back yard, utilize them to your advantage by creating seating options for your guests to step away and cool off.

If your outdoor seating area is shade-free, don't worry, there are plenty of easy do-it-yourself options at your disposal. Click here for a collection of summer shade options from DIY Network (our favorite is the hanging garden).
