Now that the summer is here and it’s beautiful outside, it’s a great time to have outdoor parties, at a safe distance, of course!. They’re a great way to connect with friends and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts, but if you want to spice up your event, it can be a bit tedious to try and figure out some good ideas and themes for your 2020 summer party. Thankfully, we’ve compiled a brief list of great ideas and themes for you to get started!


There are plenty of different themes to choose from when it comes to hosting a summer party; it really depends on your mood, guests, and even what you have available at home.
A classic BBQ party is always a great traditional choice that everyone knows and loves; everything is easily customizable and there’s plenty of BBQ styles out there to inspire you.
If you have a pool or access to a beach, then a pool party is a great, refreshing choice. Whether it’s daytime or nighttime, a pool party works either time of day. Warm or cool colour palettes both work great, and there’s plenty of options out there to match your palette perfectly.
A Luau theme gives you the opportunity to flex your DIY skills and is simple to do. From tropical flowers to grass skirts to Hawaiian music, you can bring a taste of Hawaii to your backyard. Don’t forget the tropical invitations!
Beer or wine tasting parties are a great way to indulge your alcohol connoisseur side while catching up with friends and neighbours. There are plenty of great craft beers and great wines to choose from; it’s a great way to both expand your horizons and promote your local wineries or breweries.


Once you have the theme and resources decided, there are quite a few summer party games you can come up with to entertain your guests. It’s a good idea to wait until after the food, so your guests can play on a full stomach. Either group games or game areas both work; it’s a good way to spice things up!
Some popular game ideas are:

  • Scavenger hunt
  • Ring toss
  • Water balloon dodgeball
  • Bottle ring toss
  • Obstacle course
  • Bean bag toss

There are plenty of other ideas out there, so think about what works best for you and your guests!
