3 Awesome Backyard Party Ideas

June 9, 2018


Throwing a party and need an idea? With just a little planning, you can turn your ordinary backyard into anything you want it to be.


A Water Park


Who says you need a pool to cool off on hot days? Create a backyard water park with stations like Slip ‘n’ Slide, sprinklers, inflatable water play pools and water balloons. Serve guests popsicles, funnel cake, hotdogs and other waterpark treats. Be sure to have plenty of beach towels on hand and a designated area for those guests who’d prefer to stay dry.


A Movie Theater


Host a film night under the stars by moving your home theater outside. Create “stadium seating” by putting blankets towards the front of the viewing area, reclining chairs behind those, and then regular lawn chairs in the back. Decorate your backyard in theme with the movie you are screening and serve popcorn.


To get the real movie theater experience, use a high-quality projector, such as those from Casio, which combine a laser and LED light source to produce optimal visuals. Their Intelligent Light Control feature senses ambient light and automatically adjusts the projection brightness accordingly to ensure that no matter the time of day or lighting conditions, you’ll have good visuals.


With these same ideas and just a few snack and decoration swaps, you can host your friends for any big televised event!


Summer Camp


Relive the camp experience with some friendly competition. Assign all your guests to teams and then start keeping score. A prominent score board with the current stats and some motivating music will keep guests on top of their game. Include classic feats of strength and coordination like tug-of-war and a three-legged race, but don’t be afraid to branch out to include games that use the mind, such as trivia. Complete the day with an awards ceremony.


Take your backyard party to the next level. Pick a theme and go all out to create a fiesta your guests won’t soon forget.
