We had the most amazing Summer kickoff party last weekend. It was hands down the best and most inexpensive party I’ve ever thrown. The kids had a blast welcoming Summer with a Slip’ N Slide party and a few neighborhood friends.
My goal was to focus on having a fun and relaxing day to celebrate the beginning of Summer vacation. Sometimes I host parties that take hours and hours to prepare for, leaving me exhausted at the end of the day. I didn’t want that to be the case this time around. So I went shopping for simple snacks like Tombstone Pizza along with a vegetable platter and chips. We ended the day with Nestle Drumstick ice cream cones. It was the perfect menu for our party, with quick and easy foods that the kids love #GrabSummerFun.
The party decor was very simple. The only thing I could actually consider decor is the streamer table skirt. It looked great while putting it together, but unfortunately it became windy and they flew all over the place.
Despite the wind, I still had fun setting up the table with a blue and green theme. Everything on the table cost between $1-$4. I’m telling you, I spent the least amount I have ever spent on a party and my son said it was the best party we’ve ever had. One of the boys even said it’s the best party he’s ever been to! Isn’t it funny how that works out? The most casual party turns out to be the most fun for everyone.
The kids were entertained by the Slip’ N Slide, water balloons, and sponge water bombs. They played for hours and hours, celebrating their first day of Summer vacation. I could watch them do this everyday, just enjoying the laughter and silly games they played.
