Six Ideas for a Fantastic Summer Party

Ah, Summertime. The sunny season that has inspired Shakespearean masterpieces and hit songs like “Summer Girls” by LFO alike. It graces us with superhero blockbusters, late nights, or memories that stay with us beyond extended mall hours.

Unfortunately, the halcyon days of water fights and roadtrips is only here for a short time, so if you blinked and the month of June disappeared into the warm breeze, do not fear: You are not alone and there is still time to make the most of your summer!

We all know that the best part of summer isn’t the outdoor concerts or that it stays light until after 9:00 PM, it is the great company shared over a bottle of good vino or a pitcher of margaritas as you lounge poolside.
