😷 Because we’re still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, some adjustments may need to be made while planning your celebrations. Keeping your parties outdoors is already a great first step, but we’ve included some additional safety tips to consider for each of our themes.
Spring and summer are on the way, and that means lots of reasons to get together with friends and family. Shake off the winter blues with a birthday party, barbecue, reunion, or block party! We have some fun ideas to keep the celebrations outside and your guests entertained.
To make it easy to tell if a performer or service is a good fit for your outdoor party, we’ve created a handy key:
👨👩👧 Great for family-friendly events
🧒 More fun for kids
👯♀️ Better for adults
Visit the theater
There’s nothing better than enjoying the theater from the comfort of your own home. Whether you prefer the latest blockbuster or getting into character with the actors, these vendors can turn your yard into the Fox Theater!
😷 Safety Tip: Stick to prepackaged refreshments to reduce the spread of germs in common areas.
Embrace the arts
A few brushstrokes can add some artistic flair to your outdoor party. And no worries about getting paint or ink on your couches when you keep the festivities outside! Book a talented artist for your next outdoor birthday, baby shower, or community festival.
😷 Safety Tip: Have hand sanitizer and disinfecting spray ready to clean up in between each attendee’s visit with the party’s special guests.
Don’t stop the music
Every good outdoor party needs a soundtrack, and these vendors will help take things to the next level. From classy garden bridal showers to birthday luaus to rockin’ 50th anniversaries in the backyard, live music is always a great addition.
😷 Safety Tip: Mark your audience’s “personal zones” around the performance area with circles or squares so everyone can rock out safely!
Add the wow factor
Impress your outdoor party guests with a performer that specializes in dazzling their audiences. And when you’re outside, you don’t have to worry about space restrictions cramping your performers’ style!
😷 Safety Tip: Even outdoors, be sure to limit the amount of guests at your party so everyone can practice social distancing.
Encourage audience participation
Don’t be an idle observer at your next outdoor party! Your school fair, birthday celebration, or block party will be more fun when they’re hands-on (or feet-on). Jump in and get interactive with these event services!
😷 Safety Tip: Pass out themed masks for your guests to wear while they’re interacting with the entertainment!
Almost any event can be hosted outside in the fresh air, so start planning your outdoor party this month! Your guests will love celebrating in the sunshine.
