Now that summer is here, it’s time to embrace it and make the most out of the longer days and warmer weather.
And with ideal conditions for entertaining, there’s no better season to invite your friends or family over for an outdoor get-together.
With this in mind, we’ve prepared a list of outdoor entertaining tips to help you host the most enjoyable summer gathering yet!
Make Summer Wonderful With These Outdoor Entertaining Tips
1.Keep the Bugs Away
There’s nothing worse than having your guests complain about bugs flying in their food, or seeing them scratch away at mosquito bites all day. So keep the tabard close-by, light up a few citronella candles and run a fan near the food to discourage insects from buzzing around this area.
2.Prepare for Bad Weather
Be sure to check the weather report about a week in advance. If there’s a chance of rain, then you’ll need to choose a backup room that has enough space to host all your guests. It’s also a good idea to start planning a few indoor activities to keep your guests entertained. Activities such as karaoke, table tennis or popular games like 30 seconds are certain crowd-pleasers.
3.Choose the Right Music
The music you choose can either create a mood or kill one! That’s why it’s important to choose cheerful and upbeat music that will keep everyone in good spirits. Try incorporating a few popular, sing-a-long classics in your playlist, as these always go down well!
4.Keep your Guests Cool & Hydrated
We all know how hot South African summers can get, and how they can leave you covered in an uncomfortably sticky sweat! And although there’s nothing you can do to turn down the heat, you can make sure your guests aren’t drained and dehydrated from it. Ice-cold drinks and treats, such as tasty popsicles and cocktails will definitely perk up the party.
Combine these tips for outdoor entertaining with delicious food and good company, and you’ve got all the right ingredients for a great time!
