DIY: Throw The Party of The Summer

May 09, 2014

With the upcoming release of Endless Love, we are going to give sure-fire tips to throw the summer bash everyone will remember!  

When beautiful Jade meets charismatic David, her sheltered world of privilege turns upside down when the pair’s instant desire sparks a reckless summer love affair. While Jade leaves behind her inhibitions and innocence to fall for David, he works to prove himself worthy of her love. But when David’s mysterious past and Jade’s overprotective father threaten to tear them apart, their romance will be put to the ultimate test.

From pool parties, “just because” gatherings, to graduation get-togethers, it’s obvious that summer is the season for celebrations. With just a little help from David and his girlfriend’s wonderful mom, Jade ended up throwing the graduation party of the summer. Let us be the David to your Jade, and help you throw your most unforgettable summer bash yet!

Party Playlist

No party is complete without the perfect playlist. We’ve compiled some of our favorite tunes to turn any party into a hit.

  • “Summer” by Calvin Harris
  • “Falling” by HAIM
  • “You My Everything” by Ellie Goulding
  • “One Minute More” by Capital Cities
  • “Hurricane (CHVRCHES Remix)” by MS MR
  • “The Man Who Lives Forever” by Lord Huron

Games Galore

We’re not talking Pin the Tail on the Donkey here. The more creative you get, the more participation, and most importantly, the more fun it’s bound to be. We’ve got suggestions to get the party started!

Camera Hot Potato

Parties and selfies go hand-in-hand - so why not make it a game? The idea is to pass a camera around the room or table for a random amount of time. Whoever has the camera has to take a selfie before passing it on, and who ever has it when the buzzer goes off is out. The game is such a fun way to get candids that your friends will beg you not to tag them in.

Who Am I?

This game is a party classic, yes, but always entertaining. The first step is to pick names of celebrities, characters, or even objects and write them on index cards or name tags. Each person playing will be given a name card. Make sure they don’t peek! Each player roams around the room with twenty “yes or no” questions. For instance someone can ask, “Am I a man?” “Am I alive?” or “Am I in movies?” The first person to guess the name on the card wins. Just the perfect game for shy (but fun) people like Jade to get to know everyone!

Dance Off

This one’s not for the faint of heart. Take a page out of Jade’s party book and have a dance off! If you’ve got the perfect party playlist, then this one’s easy. Designate partners or groups, set a rehearsal time, and dance your pants off!

Festive Food

Keeping your guests fed is key. Don’t worry this is where finger foods come in handy! You can serve the ordinary pizza, wings, hamburgers, and hot dogs or you can go above and beyond with these creative and delicious recipes.

Well, if you get compliments on your hair but deep down inside YOU don't like it. Just know wether people like your hair or not the only decision the counts is YOURS! i dont vote for the punk style but if you wanna dye it, dye it!  but just think about the future would you want it green and blue or a simple black. (if u go with black YOU will still feel good about yourself and get compliments). you could cut, you know, change it up a bit. HAVE FUN and GOOD LUCK best wishes-

It happened a few days ago, and my dad was cheating on my mom with a bunch of women online....  I haven't stopped crying since then and I dont even know what I am supposed to do!!!! This isn't the first time he has cheated on my mom, but she said that this was his final chance, and that he either has to commit to his family, or not be part of it for the rest of his life..... I need serious help because I know more about the whole situation than my little brother and sister do..... I don't want them to get hurt....... So anything would help......

Hmm... like all the comments above, I suggest you do whatever you wish with your hair. This is life. Live it up. Also, if you REEAALLYY want to dye your hair, here are some tips/suggestions: ♪ Okay, okay, who the MARSHMELLOW cares what your hair looks like? People are always going for the looks these days. :e ♪ Try highlighting a few strands of your hair. ;D If you're satisfied, do a couple of more strands! ♪ Like everyone else, use hair chalk. It's the safest and I've learned that if you dye your hair, it's going to make a major mess and it will be a MAAAAJOR pain. Hair Chalk for da best! ♪ Still feeling unconfident? Highlight your hair whatever color you want by highlighting a few strands like I typed before. Then, go to people and ask them if they like your new highlights. ♪ Maybe you should ask people if you'd look good with your hair whatever color you wanted. Anyhow, I might add more suggestions if I can think of any. Anyways, hope I helped! ^^
