How to Throw an Awesome Backyard Party

neon-828789_960_720Here’s KnitWit again! As you probably know, I am a dedicated party maker. I like organizing various party-related events in different places – at home or at a club. However, my biggest passion has always been outrageous backyard partying. Having some crazy moments with your friends outside during the warm time of the year, posting instant images to Instagram or Facebook is absolutely marvelous and entertaining.

For me, a real backyard party has never been just about the food, drinks, and nice décor. Although these things matter too, offering some unbelievable and capturing activities for the party program are the most significant factors to make a top-class party. Many people do not realize the potential of their backyards while arranging a party. Here are some of my ideas on how you can use what you already have to prepare a cool evening.

Swimming Pool

If you are lucky to have that in your backyard, be sure to use it, especially if the weather is warm and there’s a good opportunity for sun bathing. Instead of sweating and hiding in the shade from the sun, you can offer your guests plenty of pool party games which provide perfect entertainment and help to overcome the summer heat. Make sure you have some extra towels for your guests in case some forget to bring their own. And of course, don’t forget to provide a room for your guests to change into their bathing suits.

If you have this piece of equipment, be sure to offer it to your guests. Don’t worry, it’s a pastime loved not only by kids. Most adults will enjoy it as well. However, remember to provide some safety measures by installing the enclosure netting. And of course, don’t exceed the weight capacity.


No matter how loud the music is and how crazy the entertainment is, any party needs a relaxation place where people can have a rest and a place to socialize. If you have a few reliable trees in your backyard, be sure to assemble a couple of comfortable hammocks where your guests can enjoy the natural surroundings and garden designs. There are lots of different hammocks varying in materials, designs and sizes. If possible, try to get an oversized type so that you can fit a bunch of your friends there where they can enjoy their soft drinks and listen to the music.

Backyard Movie

If you happen to have a video projector and a good sound system, try to add versatility to your backyard party activities by setting up an outdoor movie theater. Use some white bed sheets as a screen, get some chairs for your guests and the theater is ready. Don’t forget the popcorn!  

You can measure the success of your party in many ways, from the number of the guests to the time when the party is over. However, if you want to throw an unforgettable party, be sure to offer some unique entertainment for your guests.
