Looking to throw some of the best parties this year?  Then forget the indoors and step into the great outdoors for these top party ideas:

Sporting Events

Whether it’s football (both American and European), hockey, or basketball, any sporting event can call for an at-home party.  All you need is a projector, a white sheet or white shower curtain, and something to hold up or act as a frame for that white material and you can bring your outdoor sporting event outdoors when coupled with an outdoor home entertainment or speaker system.  Heat up the grill on your outdoor kitchen, cook up some ribs and wings, and you definitely have yourself a party.


This one’s an obvious “party” idea.  But if you already have Thanksgiving plans, why not plan a pre-Thanksgiving or post-Thanksgiving party?  Have guests bring over their favorite dishes or their most loathed leftovers, cook up some fresh fall favorites on your outdoor grill, and then throw a party!  Make sire that you create a festive space by incorporating traditional “Thanksgiving” colors, such as yellow, red and brown (this can be done through lighting, through fire, or through other basic decor such as branches, leaves, and pine cones).

The Winter Solstice

Before we can welcome winter into our lives we need to first pass through the winter solstice, a day which is also known as the shortest day of the year.  Occurring on December 21 or 22nd of every year, it’s a great excuse to throw a pre-Christmas party with your friends (and not with your less than favorable family members who may have trickled into town).  Celebrate the day by preparing some rich, warm winter dishes and by adding a number of light features to help ring in this darkest day of the year, such as floating pool lanterns, tiki torches, or incorporating other fire features to your backyard.
