Mom in Training: Summer time is party time!

Summer time is party time!


If you're like the rest of us you're probably going to either have or attend at least one party this summer. I know we always have friends over for a BBQ and pool party 4th of July weekend. It's something we've done every year since we got our pool. Each year we try to do something a little different and have some fun activities that everyone will leave talking about. That means I get to do some shopping at my favorite online party supply store Oriental Trading. I like shopping there because for me it's a one-stop-shop for all things fun!

Need a little inspiration for your upcoming summer parties? Then check out some awesome ideas below to get you started.


Start your party off right with a fun theme for your gathering. How about a Luau Party? I mean who doesn't love flamingos and palm trees! You can find all things Luau themed here: Luau Party Ideas.


And once you have your theme down it's time to start planning some fun activities and games for your guests to enjoy. From beach balls to bubbles, to funky sunglasses and squirt guns there's so many fun things for your guests to do while enjoying the great outdoors. Check out the endless supply of Summer Toys, Games and Novelties.


And of course a party is never complete without themed food and beverages! I love the super cool looking Jell-O® Sea Glass. It's a treat both adults and kids will love. You can find the recipe for it along with many others here: Summer Recipes.

So whether you're hosting or attending a backyard BBQ or pool party you'll be ready thanks to all of the creative ideas and fun novelties at Oriental Trading!
