Summer Solstice Party!


The summer solstice marks the onset of summer, at the time of the longest day, about June 21st. It’s a great day to celebrate with friends and family! As we begin to enter hotter and longer days this summer, it means that cookouts, BBQs, pool parties, and concerts are going to fill up a lot of our time.


If you’re lucky enough, this summer you will be responsible for hosting one of those events or maybe even something bigger. In this article, we have put together a list of ideas and tips for how to throw a summer solstice party year-after-year that everyone will enjoy.



  • Tent, Tables & Chairs: The first thing you need for your summer party are tents, tables and chairs for your guests to sit. 

  • Party Fun: The weather is warm enough for a slip & slide or a waterslide! Or you can always go with a party favorite of a bounce house slide combo to keep the kids (and kids at heart) happy for hours!

  • Decorations: The summer solstice is all about nature and the long days of summer. When you decorate your tent be sure you provide plenty of lighting. Your guest will want to chase fireflies but don’t have them become a feast for mosquitos. Make sure you control the mosquitos at your party or those little beasts will have your guests running indoors. 

  • Invitations: Use a sun-motif rubber stamp to add a touch of brilliance to plain note cards. And if your friends aren't familiar with the solstice, be sure to explain its significance on the invitation.​

Food & Drinks


Treat your guests to refreshing beverages, like sparkling wine or one of these delicious frozen cocktails:

  • strawberry daiquiris

  • mudslides

  • frozen sangrias

  • piña coladas

Keep the kids happy with a hot dog cart and cotton candy rental while the adults sit back and relax with a grill rental complete with a grill-master!
