It is that time of the year when all the activities are winding down and everyone is thinking about visiting family and friends and all the other holiday time festivities. If you are thinking about planning a party for your friends, here are some ideas that will help add some spice to your next get-together.

Backyard Carnival

Another idea that few people think of when they throw a party is a backyard carnival. The awesome thing about a backyard carnival is that you get to plan everything about it, including the theme songs, costumes, and food. One idea is to have themed food and drinks served at your carnival.

You can also plan various games for guests to play. This includes night bowling, target golf, ring toss, lawn darts, and many others. In addition, you can put your own spin on these games to make them match up with a particular theme. For example, you can turn target golf into “Feed the Monster” for a Halloween-themed carnival. If you anticipate having kids in attendance, using blow-up games like a bounce house or slide is always a hit. And let's be honest, adults enjoy them too! 


Take your time and think of a carnival idea that your friends would enjoy the most, then plan accordingly.

Hot Tub Party

One of the first things that come to many people’s minds when they hear “party” is a dip in the pool or a visit to the beach in the summer. If you have a hot tub in the backyard, this could be one of the best backyard party ideas to think about. There is nothing that will make a night more magical than having your friends enjoy themselves in a hot tub in the evening when the world is cold all around them.

You can make this idea even better by adding some wine, music, and refreshments. For more fun, have your friends bring their significant others. Add a few select games and you will have a night to remember.

Offer Drinks

If you really want to spice up your next event, you can try your hand at serving alcohol, which always livens up the festivities. That said, alcohol can easily get out of hand if your servers aren't properly certified. {Getting them their proper training} will go a long way to ensure that your alcohol-serving party is the neighborhood's biggest hit without anyone getting out of control.

Luau-Themed Party

Who is to say that you cannot create the feeling of being on a tropical island right in your backyard and have your friends join in on the experience? Look for props such as inflatable coconut trees and tiki huts and have island-themed music and drinks to pull the experience together. You could also have everyone show up in Hawaiian shirts, cargo shorts and flip-flops for a laugh.
