SUMMER IS COMING TO AN END.

But I’m totally fine with that because it’s an excuse to throw a party or BBQ.

There’s nothing better than sitting poolside with an ice-cold beer, chips/salsa, & a little Bob Dylan. In fact, it’s one of my favorite ways to host. Day drinking is more fun anyway.

I feel like everyone loves a good end of summer party so it should be NO surprise to you that we need to specifically discuss this, right?

If you’re the host make sure you:

Supply food, but let’s get specific: obviously chips, salsa, guac, nuts, the basics. I love throwing in a peach summer salad with a little basil & then ending with good old hamburgers, hot dogs, & even some veggie burgers. Make the guys grill by keeping their beer buzz going. I always trick Michael into this job by telling him how OMG AMAZING, BEST EVER his hamburger is. A couple of beers in & he’s literally Chef Boyardee.

Oh! And sparkling water is nearby too because YUM! A flamingo themed pitcher of iced tea adds something big to the table too & is perfect for anyone under 21. Add some lemon, limes, & blueberries next to it for an extra special touch.

Typically I have some kind of dessert like strawberry ice cream & 60’s cones, watermelon jerky, &/or a Funfetti cake (everyone loves Funfetti because it’s such a nostalgic throwback, you know).

Keep it festive with chill music: music is key. We all know this, so I’m currently creating an end of summer playlist for you so get excited. Add a little Bossanova to your mix & you are golden. Bossanova by the pool is very St. Tropez & will fit well with your potential kaftan moment.

Include a bucket of ice-cold beer: YES, YES, YES. I LOVE a cold beer. As you know, Stella is my favorite ever. The taste is spot on. It’s so funny because whenever I Snapchat my Stella, you guys message me with excitement. Apparently you all share the same taste! Regardless, boys love beer too. So to keep them occupied throw a bunch of Stella’s in a huge tube of ice & they will smile the rest of the day. It’s simple really. As a host, drinking a beer is ideal because it’s not too hard. Light, refreshing, & easy. YES PLZ!

Wear something summery: do we even have to go over this? White is always fun. I love a good off the shoulder top, as pictured. As I said, I love a good kaftan. It’s so Palm Springs & fits with the end of summer theme. I just bought this one, it’s ideal for a day at the pool.

Make sure your guests have what they need: keep this cheeky! Of course this includes a little table of SPF, some juicy magazines, a couple of beer openers, napkins ( stick with the theme, no one likes old baby shower cocktail napkins – keep it fresh with maybe some bright striped yellow ones? ), hats, floats ( I’m bored with the swan, but the pizza one is fun ), & TOWELS! STACK THOSE towels up! Guests will love that you thought of their needs.

So that’s kind of my poolside, end of summer checklist. End your summer with a bang, crack open a beer, slather on that SPF, & rock your kaftan.

Snap me your end of summer vibe & of course, if you have anything to add to this list, I’m all ears.

CHEERS!

    This post has totally inspired me to hold an end of Summer party for my favourite ones … I’ll just be sure to add a little gazebo into the mix because you know, it has a tendency to rain in the UK!

    Guys can be soo easy sometimes. I do the same thing with my boyfriend, “BABE you make the BEST pasta, you know the one I like, please please make it? You’re so much better at it than me”. There’s times that he catches on but sometimes he loves the compliment so much that he just ends up making it haha.
