Summer is almost over. Isn't that a sad statement? But never fear, you still have time to live it up this summer!! Arianna from Arianna Knows Best is here to share some awesome Summer party ideas. Take it away, Arianna!
With the extreme heat and kids running around like animals, summer can get pretty intense! While it’s nice to sit back with a trashy gossip magazine to unwind, it can be a little envy inducing as well! Private islands, designer couture, and extravagant parties are enough to make anyone turn into a green-eyed monster! Thankfully, I have some imaginative friends, and we came up with a few ideas that were inspired by our favorite celebrities!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: ALBUM RELEASE PARTIES
– Album release parties are the hottest ticket during the summer. Albums from Kanye West, The Black Keys, and Britney Spears are among the most highly anticipated releases of not only summer, but of the year. With so much new material flooding the airwaves, album release parties are just another excuse for celebrities to hope on a pricey private jet and travel from city to city to dance the night away!
REALITY SUMMER: DANCE OFF!
– Time to start your own dance crew! Invite the friends and family over for the dance battle of the summer! Divide the participants into equal groups (try not to stack the deck!), pick your hottest jam, and dance yourself into a frenzy! Have bystanders cast their votes, and reward the winning team with some themed prizes, such as an iTunes gift card or fun colored headphones!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: ELLE STYLE AWARDS
– This awards show is the one of biggest nights in fashion! With anybody and everybody showing up on the red carpet, dressed head to toe in hundreds of thousands of dollars in clothing, accessories, and jewelry. This award show is all about being a style trendsetter. If you want to win big, you have to dress for it!
REALITY SUMMER: CLOTHING/ACCESSORY SWAP PARTY
– Get together with your girlfriends, and swap each other’s fabulous gently or unworn clothing and accessories. Does one of your friends have that one item you have always been envious of? Then try your best to entice them with something they want of yours. You never know what you could walk away with!
CELEBRITY BIRTHDAY PARTY: HOLLYWOOD LUAU
– Celebrity themed birthday parties are all the rage, and one of the biggest themes is the luau! From tropical drinks, to fire-dancers, and leis, a luau party is always a hit with celebrities, and their A-list friends. Extra TV host, Maria Menunous recently celebrated her 35th birthday with a major beach blowout! From celebrity guests to exotic animals, her party was a fixture in every gossip magazine for a week after!
REALITY BIRTHDAY PARTY: PARADISE IN YOUR BACKYARD
– Who wants a luau? Why not mix it up with your friends and family in the backyard by throwing a Greek or Moroccan themed party? Cook up (or go ahead and cater, it’s okay!) some authentic food, and encourage your guest to dress in authentic clothing. Turn your birthday party into a global destination with vibrant decorations and enchanting music!
