Bring out the sun cream, fire up the barbeque and find your most garish party shirt this season as we break down the ultimate summer party essentials list to ensure that your soiree is the best of the bunch!
Nothing gets a summer party going quite like an incredible playlist and the best summer party music needs to get your guests dancing so mix nostalgic classics with current chart-toppers but keep the mood and temp consistent.
The Food & Drink
If wanting to try an alternative to the traditional barbeque you could make a large batch of dough, get your guests to create their own toppings and fire up an outdoor pizza oven.
Keep things fun and serve your drinks in one of the cute summer party accessories from Sunnylife (our favourites are the pineapple and grapefruit sippers!)
The summer party is the one time of year where the party shirt comes into its own. The more outlandish the better when it comes to party shirts for men so choose to go bold in this season’s popular tropical and botanical prints. Wear with a pair of lightweight shorts and finish with a bucket hat for the ultimate throwback Kevin and Perry Go Large aesthetic.
The ultimate summer party outfit for women should be breezy and lightweight without sacrificing on style to keep you looking chic in the heat. Most summer party dresses are therefore crafted from a breathable cotton fabric to keep you cool during the summer months but linen and rayon are also popular summertime fabrics.
Keep your summer party decorations fun and over the top – this is not a time for minimalist chic. We suggest that you pick one of the popular summer party themes (luau, boho, flamingo, pineapple, cactus) and go all in on creating a tropical paradise in your back garden!

Do you remember when you used to go to parties as a child and there were always games of musical chairs and hide and seek? Well, summer party games don’t have to stop as you get older and there are heaps of games to play that the whole family can enjoy. Play a giant game of snap or set up a volleyball net in the garden this summer…just remember to leave deep-seated family rivalries at the door!
