First off, we all know how important it is to protect you and your guests from the sun, so have some sunscreen along with bug spray on hand for everyone to use.

After quickly mingling, your guests will surely go grab a drink. Instead of using a typical cooler, use a wheel barrel. You’ll be able to fit tons of drinks, and even better, you can move it around twice as easy as a standard cooler. To make things a little more fun, instead of using plain ice to keep drinks cold, use frozen water balloons for a splash of color. Oh and don’t forget to tie a bottle opener to your cooler so guests don’t have to wander around asking for one.

But where will you seat all these guests? Hay bales actually make for pretty amazing seating, especially for a summer party. You can use them individually or push them together for larger seating. Just place blankets overtop to make them less itchy and more comfortable.

Now for the little touches, these are super inexpensive and add some fun. Instead of leaving your string lights naked, cut a tiny hole and plastic party cup on them, if you’re guests didn’t know they were there for a good time, now they do! And of course you’ll need a firefly catching station for the kiddos, make a sign to place on the table, and use old pickle jars with holes poked in the lids for the kids put their catch in!
