Today I found two perfect ideas for my annual summer backyard party. Trouble is, I’m so in love with both of them that I’m not sure which to choose. Maybe you can help me.
Idea 1: Picnic Party
For inspiration I started with Shutterfly’s Picnic Basket Summer Invitation. I love the bright colors and nostalgic retro look, plus the idea of having a picnic in my very own backyard appeals to me. It’s sort of like camping on the front lawn. Remember doing that?
Then I came across these cool summer picnic party ideas from Hostess With The Mostess. I can’t get enough of those watermelon planters and watermelon seed balloons.
Idea 2: Ice Cream Social
I have to admit that I didn’t start with the invitation first. I just love ice cream. Luckily, Shutterfly’s Popsicle Party Summer Invitation fits right in with my theme. The versatility of this card makes it easy to use, too. Depending on what text and photo I use, I can design it for either kids or adults.
Then I found these yummy ice cream social ideas from Epicurious and I was hooked. Summer and ice cream go together, and who can resist a party starring everyone’s favorite dessert?
What do you think? Picnic or ice cream? Let me know by commenting on this article.
