A house party allows you to enjoy all of the luxuries of your home plus the fun company of your friends and family. But most summer get-togethers tend to be limited to pool parties and barbeques. We want your next celebration to be incredible and one of a kind — so we’re showing you exactly how to host a swanky summer soiree at home. Get those invitations ready because this summer will be sizzling with the hottest house parties around.
Bar room kitchen trends make your home the perfect place to host a party.
It’s time to take the party away from the kitchen island. While this extra countertop space makes a great makeshift bar and serving station for your hors d’oeuvres, it’s not always the most convenient location with a larger guest list. Add a bar room off your kitchen or living room and liven up any event.
When choosing cabinets, consider what type of amenities you and your guests will benefit from the most. Would a built-in wine rack be life changing? Could you finally accommodate everyone’s favorite beer with an extra fridge? Think about what makes you and your guests the happiest and try to incorporate these elements into your bar room cabinetry.
A seasonal menu highlights the best produce the summer has to offer.
Steer clear of the typical salsa, pigs in a blanket, and chicken wings and put together a party menu that is rich in seasonal goodness. Incorporate summer fruits and vegetables into your appetizers, main course, and dessert. Here are a few ideas:
- Corn – Don’t forget this summer favorite at your soiree. Elote (better known as Mexican street corn) is a flavorful, grilled finger food that is much more exciting than your traditional corn on the cob. You could also whip up a delicious succotash to serve alongside a chicken or fish entrée.
- Stone Fruits – Grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream are a simple but mouthwatering dessert. You could also cut up some fresh peaches to serve alongside a cheese plate with other summer fruits, such as cherries and figs.
- Melons – Prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe will instantly give your menu a little something extra. You could also create an easy watermelon and feta salad that will be as tasty as it is colorful.
An outdoor space gives guests room to wander and a way to enjoy the warm weather.
There are so many kitchen trends that break down the backdoor and extend the heart of the home outdoors. Whether your home already has an outdoor kitchen or you’re considering one, adding an outdoor space is a great way to give your summer parties more punch. Other than a traditional outdoor kitchen, there are other fun ways to bring the fiesta into the fresh air. We’ve seen backyards with pizza ovens, fire pits, guacamole carts, Croquet, and Cornhole boards. You know your friends and family better than anyone. Find an awe-factor that will take your backyard to the next level and make your party a memory that lasts forever.
