Summer is rapidly approaching, and if you've got a kiddo with a birthday in the summer months, it can sometimes be a challenge to come up with fresh ideas. For much of the country, summer is meant to be spent outdoors – you have to take advantage when you can, right? Check out these three fun backyard party ideas you can throw this summer.
• Mexican fiesta. Nothing says summer heat like a fiesta. Find the perfect colorful birthday cards and invites to send out to your child’s friends and prepare for a blast of a party! Hang red, yellow, and green streamers and use bright tablecloths to create a festive mood. Set up a nacho or taco bar with fun toppings like olives, green onions, salsa, guacamole, cheese, and more. The highlight of the party is – of course – a piñata filled with candy. Let the kids take turns whacking the piñata with a bat and be sure the video camera is taping when it finally busts open and everyone scrambles for a treat!
Whatever theme you choose, take the opportunity that summer affords and throw a party in your own backyard. Your child will forever remember the fun and all the effort you put in will be well worth their smiles.
