hi friends! It’s August. When in the world did that happen? While we still have some summer nights left, let’s make the most of them. I want to spend the next month getting to know others, staying up late laughing, and enjoying the gorgeous nights. So, in light of this, my newest and biggest wish is to have a summer block party! Seriously- how fun would that be to invite the neighbors, grill some hotdogs, throw up some lights, and make new friends?
A block party can go from simple to elaborate. Here are a few easy ways to make it decorative and festive, but still a low-key event. LIGHTS, LIGHTS, LIGHTS. You know how moths are attracted to those really bright lamps? I’m convinced people are the same way. String up some twinkle lights to add some good vibes. Put on rockin’ jams: my vote- One Republic’s new CD. It’s on repeat on my spotify right now. Or if you’re going for a country feel you can NEVER EVER go wrong with Mr. Luke Bryan. Make it welcoming, keep it casual, and make sure to leave some time for dancing! For other decorations-how great are these?
Nothing says Summer Fun more than colorful streamers and a tub full of sodas, beers, and some good ol’ h2o. I was in love with these the second I saw them. Keep it easy with food- grill up some hot dogs and have the neighbors bring sides and desserts. The only thing left to do is pick a night and invite the ‘hood with some flyers! I am completely inspired to throw one of these bashes in the next month. I’ll keep y’all updated with pictures of the results. Celebrate life and celebrate summer with an inspired and simple backyard bash!
Love and sunshine.
