Beat the Heat:

Summers in Texas can be scorching. Set up shaded areas with umbrellas, canopies, or tents to provide some welcome relief from the heat. When the heat is on, misters and fans become your best friends. Invest in some high-quality misting fans or set up cooling stations around your party space to keep the air breezy and refreshing. 

Pick an Inside Venue (just kidding… kind of):

When in doubt, you can always just rely on good old air conditioning to save the day. Texas, and Austin, in particular, is home to some of the most gorgeous, unique indoor spaces in the world. Just because you’re throwing a party in the summer doesn’t mean you have to suffer in it. Go for a venue with an outdoor and indoor space so you can utilize both on those summer nights when Texas drops sub 85 degrees. 

Party Themes:

Instead of forcing your guests to suffer through sweaty cocktail attire, why not theme your party to embrace the summer heat? Whether it's a tropical luau, a beach party bonanza, or a backyard BBQ fiesta, encourage your guests to dress in summer-friendly attire with a fun themed event. Not only will they appreciate the chance to stay cool, but it'll also add an extra element of fun to the festivities.

Drinks, Drinks, Drinks:

No summer party is complete without a selection of ice-cold beverages to keep your guests hydrated and happy. Stock up on a variety of refreshing drinks like fruity cocktails, chilled beers, and sparkling sodas. Consider setting up a DIY drink station with plenty of ice, fresh fruit garnishes, and fun summer-themed drinkware.

Music that Beats the Heat:

Finally, set the mood and make your guests forget about the sweltering heat with a killer live band that's sure to get everyone moving and grooving. Opt for upbeat tunes with a tropical twist or classic summer anthems that will transport your guests to a carefree paradise. With the right music, even the hottest summer day won't stand a chance against your banger party vibes. Keep the party going all night long!

With these tips in mind, you're well on your way to hosting the ultimate summer party in Texas. From mouthwatering barbecue to fun-filled activities, your guests are sure to have a memorable time celebrating the sun-filled season. So fire up the grill, crank up the music, and get ready to throw the party of the summer!
