Simple Party Ideas

Decorate on a Dime

Hang a delicate, white string of lights outside (think along the porch or strung in a tree). Place summer-scented candles on picnic tables or line them along a walkway. Keep settings simple by skipping the placemats. Instead, break small twigs from a tree to place on top of napkins. Have your kids draw summer-themed pictures and hang them in high-traffic places, such as the kitchen.

Grill Up the Perfect Pizza Party

Yep, you heard that right. Fire up the flavor — and the fun — by throwing pizza on the grill and serving up a delicious slice for your guests. Add FUZE® tropical refreshments for a true summer flavor.

Swing, Batter, Swing

Rain has often been known to put a damper on outdoor party plans — that is, unless it’s raining candy. Try hanging a summer-themed piñata at your next family-friendly fiesta. Bust out the blindfold and gather around as your guests take turns swinging for a sweet prize.

Raise the Roof and Cue the Karaoke

Whether you’re an air guitar aficionado or just a fan belting out a good chorus, add some fun to your next music mash-up with FUZE® bottles — the perfect refreshment that doubles as a microphone. Think your vocal skills are top notch? Impress the crowd even more when you bust out your best dance moves!

Keep Cool in the Pool

Nothing says summer quite like a pool party, so invite guests to make a splash at your next backyard bash. Lure them in with aquatic-themed invitations, then fire up the barbecue grill and soak in all the sights, sounds and smells of the season. Don’t have a pool? No sweat! As an alternative, stay cool by running through the sprinklers or setting up a water slide.

Host a Wacky Costume Party 

Who says you can only play dress-up once a year? Turn Halloween into a semi-annual get-together and encourage guests to show up to your summer bash in their wackiest costumes. Turn tropical drinks into frozen dessert pops to keep them cool as the fun heats up.

Plan a Potluck Picnic

No big backyard? No problem. Instead, go to your local park, spread out blankets and unpack your pre-portioned salads, sandwiches and drinks. Ask your guests to bring their favorite dish. Keep them entertained with a portable radio or television, or start up a game of touch football.

Backyard Brunch

Organize a Sunday morning meal outdoors that your friends and family (no matter the age) can enjoy. Set aside room for guests to mix and mingle before eating. Organize a buffet with all their favorite brunch foods and summer refreshers.

Go Green With Goodness

Want to eat clean? Have your guests over for dinner and serve a vegetarian meal as a fun and nutritious alternative. Slice up strawberries, melons and more for fruit salad to pair as a side dish, or put out a vegetable medley tray as a pre-meal primer for any dish. For even more fresh flavors, top off your meal with FUZE® fruit refreshments.
