A Summer to Remember

A Summer to Remember

Summer…A time for laughter, friends, family, and warmth. This year, make it a summer to remember with our tips for helping you to create a memorable, summer 2017.

Backyard BBQ Party

Host a classic backyard BBQ for family and friends with your favorite summer food. Although the focus of a BBQ is of course the food, you can go all out with country inspired decorations. For summer BBQ party invitations, you can choose a design that has a grill on the front or BBQ graphics, and go from there. Let your imagination soar.

Beach Party

Throw a party at the beach or bring the beach to your backyard with a fun beach party theme. This theme is usually characterized by sand, seashells, seersucker fabric, striped décor, beach chairs, and seafood, but you can always jazz it up with your own designs and decor from places like our Z Gallery, Interior Designs, and Sur La Table. You can set-up beach-inspired games for the day or host a bonfire gathering at night, or both.

If you’re throwing a beach-themed party at your house, be sure to stock up on blue linens, outdoor pillows, glassware, and rustic beach signs. Anything you can do to breathe live to your theme and make your guests feel more immersed in the environment.


Turn your backyard into an island with a luau summer party theme. This theme is easy and allows for a variety of DIY projects. Tropical flowers, palm trees, grass skirts, colorful assortments, designs, and fruity cocktails are just a few things you can incorporate to make your guests feel like they’re in Hawaii. In addition to luau-inspired décor, you can encourage guests to dance by playing Hawaiian music, or bring some poi performers to your barbecue and really dazzle your crowd.
