Are you planning on throwing a summer BBQ party in your backyard? If yes, then you have come to the right place to get inspiration. I have compiled a few ideas that you can use to throw an awesome house party. While some of the ideas are a little mainstream, I still think they look stunning when executed properly.
Floor-sittings are my favorite for several reasons. They are quite easy to set up and they are super fun. All you need are a few wooden crates. I prefer painting them with creamy white spray paint to make them look a bit polished.
Cover it with a white tablecloth and lay the whole setup on a lined blanket with some cushions. It would give a cozy appearance and it requires minimum effort.

Another fun photography idea is keeping a Polaroid camera. They are not very expensive, and you can take photos of the guests that they can take home after the party.
You can set up many different fun games for the summer party. One of my favorites is the water balloon fight. Water balloons come in all sizes and colors and various interesting shapes. You can fill them up with colored or plain cold water and stash them all in a basket for a fun and spontaneous water fight.
Another exciting game for your summer party is the color fight. You might have seen the Indian festival “Holi” where they throw colors at each other. You can use chemical-free color powder for the color fight, but I must warn you, it can get quite messy.
