Make Your Summer Memorable With Celebrity Inspired Parties!
On hot summer days, my house is full of kids running around, getting into everything and anything! When you add in family vacations, play dates, and a parade of barbeques, summer turns into a busy season for my household!
A few of my girlfriends and I were talking about what it would be like to have a quiet vacation with great service, delicious drinks, and relaxation. Since that sounds like a life of a celebrity, my friends and I decided that we would take matters into our own hands and create our own fun. After a few drinks by the pool, we came up with some great ideas to kick off a summer to remember!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: ALBUM RELEASE PARTIES: With highly anticipated new tracks from Kanye West, The Black Keys, and Brittany Spears, the sounds of summer will be filled with fresh songs! Celebrities bounce from country to country on a private jet to party and promote their new music. If you are able to go to one of these coveted parties, get ready to dance the night away!
REALITY SUMMER: DANCE OFF! : While you may not be able to take a chartered flight to perform for your fans, you can do the next best thing by making your yard into a dance floor! Designate teams, choose music, and have a practice rehearsal. After the main event, choose a winning team by secret ballot. Don't forget to hand out music themed prizes, such as iTunes gift cards or headphones!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: DO SOMETHING AWARDS: This awards show celebrates young adults making a positive difference in their communities. Nominees are recognized for their efforts to give back to others, and winners are presented with grants for their communities, which range from $10,000 to $100,000!
REALITY SUMMER: VOLUNTEER PARTY: While you may not be able to earn a Do Something award, you can still make a difference! Have your children choose a project, such as cleaning a park, collecting food for a local food shelf, or visiting residents at a nursing home. Create team shirts before for a unified feel! After you are done for the day, celebrate your good deed with ice cream treats!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: EXPENSIVE KID’S BIRTHDAY PARTIES: Kourtney Kardashian hosted an extravagant birthday party for her two year old son Mason. With aThomas the Train Engine theme, lunch at the famous restaurant Serendipity, and a trip to the Gold Coast Railroad Museum, Kourtney made sure that Mason's birthday party was a memorable one!
REALITY SUMMER: DIY "ARTY" KIDS BIRTHDAY PARTY: When it is time for your children's summer birthday parties, consider a DIY craft party! Put up stations with art supplies such as finger paints, play dough, construction paper, and markers. Finish off the day with a colorful dessert such as a rainbow cake and their favorite flavor of sherbet!
With these ideas in your summer repertoire of events, you can make your summer memorable for your family and friends. Adopt one or all of these ideas, and your summer will seem more relaxed like the life of a celebrity, instead of a busy suburban mom!
