Ah summertime and the living is easy! Long lazy days spent drinking lemonade. What else could a person ask for? Well if you’re planning a summer birthday party for your little one, you may not be quite to relaxed and may be sweating things a bit more than you’d like!

Instead of stressing on what trendy thing is in and what’s out, keep it cool with sunny, summer-inspired party themes and gifts that are bright and sunshiny!

It doesn’t get any cheerier than this bright and fun cake including a sun (and personalized!). All you need are candles and to sing Happy Birthday to your little one! Add in some yellow streamers (example from Saffron And Indigo), drinks with sassy straws (example from Karas Party Ideas), and it’s a party! (Cake from Bridges blog)

What’s more refreshing on a hot summer day than a glass of ice cold lemonade? A lemonade themed party! Serve tall glasses of different flavored lemonade (think cherry, pink, etc), a lemonade booth inspired photo booth — we love this lemonade stand download from Caravan Shoppe, and a photo album gift from Shutterfly that lets you drink in the memories of a well spent summer together.

Even if you can’t bring the party to the beach, bring the beach to the party. An invitation from Shutterfly featuring flip flops, ice cream cones, seashells, umbrellas, and all things beachy gets the fete off on the right foot. Utilize those same props to create the party atmosphere at home too. (Fun “ocean water” example from Project Nursery and sea themed fruit basket example from Chika Bug Blog)

We hope these summer party ideas brightened your day!
