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.

Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3

To be honest, this is probably just something you have to bear. I know that sometimes relatives can be irritating, but they only visit often because they care about you and want to see you (: Unless there is a real reason you don't want them to visit - for example, if they are unkind to you - then you should just endure it.  Or you could mention it to your parents and see if they can sort it out? This is something lots of kids have to deal with, me included, and it's just part of life! You are lucky to have grandparents who care about you so much c:
