Hosting a Stress-Free Summer Party

Summer is the perfect time to gather your friends and family for a memorable outdoor party. To help you host a stress-free summer party, we’ve put together a list of tips to make your get-together less work and more fun.


The more you can prepare ahead of time, the less stress there will be on the day of the party. Since the Pink Shoe team has your cleaning covered, you can focus on other things, such as decorating a few days before and preparing foods that can be put in the fridge overnight.

Embrace the Grill & Make It a Potluck

Grilling is a relatively inexpensive and easy way to feed a large group of people. Burgers and hot dogs are quick to cook, allowing you more time to spend with your family and friends. Ask your party-goers to bring a potluck side dish, making the party prep even easier.

Summer Music Playlist

A couple days ahead of time, get ready to set the mood of your party with a fun playlist. If you don’t want to spend the time curating your own, there are many summer tunes playlists available from streaming music services.

Yard Games

One of the best ways to get your guests to interact is to play some games. You can pick up an inexpensive yard game set online or at many local retailers. Cornhole, ladder toss, and giant Jenga are all crowd pleasers and easy to learn for any age.

Protect Your Guests from Sun & Bugs

Stock up on sunscreen and insect repellent, and have it readily available during the party. Light some citronella candles to help keep the pesky mosquitoes at bay. If there is not a lot of shade available, consider purchasing or renting a pop-up canopy for respite from the hot summer sun.
