7 Entertaining Tips For Summer Gatherings

It’s that time of year again! The weather is warming up, and it’s the perfect time to get together with friends and family for some summer fun. Here are seven tips to make your next gathering a hit.

Plan Ahead

Plan ahead and ensure you have everything you need before the party starts. This will help avoid last-minute rushing and ensure that everything goes smoothly. Make lists of the food, music, games, and other fun activities you want to plan for.

Summer Fun

Make sure to have plenty of activities on hand to keep everyone entertained. Whether it’s lawn games, water balloons, or a DIY photo booth, there should be something for everyone to enjoy.

Snacks

Don’t forget the snacks! No summer gathering is complete without snacks, food, and drinks. Make sure to have plenty of options for both adults and kids.

Low-Sugar Dessert

Your guests will appreciate a delicious sweet treat! Make sure you have Notta Lotta Sugar baking mixes on hand – they’re convenient, affordable, and made with simple ingredients. Plus, they’re low-sugar (about 75-85% less than National brands), making a great summer dessert for everyone!

Summer Music

Make sure to have some music playing in the background. It’ll help set the tone for your gathering and get everyone in the party mood. Find a summer playlist or make your own with songs you and your guests will love!

Comfortable Seating Areas

Keep your guests comfortable by providing shady areas and plenty of seating. Fans or misters can also help to keep everyone cool in the summer heat.

Don’t Be Too Busy to Have Fun

Have fun and enjoy yourself! Don’t get too caught up in the hustle and bustle of entertaining. After all, that’s what gatherings are all about! Relax, mingle, and make some great memories with your loved ones.
