8 Uncommon Items for Your Next Backyard Summer Party

Wherever you are in the world, you need to make sure that when the time comes, you are ready to throw the best backyard summer party ever. Make it memorable by injecting some personality into it with some unique, quirky party pieces!

Here’s a list of 8 uncommon items for throwing great summer parties!

1. Dog-Friendly Hamburger Patties

Let’s not forget that our pets need to eat too! Now you can buy pet-safe barbecue food, so your favorite fluffy friend doesn’t need to feel left out anymore!

2. Pirate Den Making Kit

Check out this arrr’some pirate den kit! Kids have always loved tearing up the sofa to create their own mini houses, and kids love new things, so why not satisfy both with a pirate den kit!

This is a great way to keep kids entertained while you set up some of the other gadgets and quirky party pieces we’ve suggested below.

3. Retro Slush Puppie Machine

A retro Slush Puppie machine will go down a treat with adults and kids alike!

When it’s too hot, and you want to cool down, there’s nothing quite like a sweet, refreshing throwback to those times you got brain freeze for the first time.

4. Rent a Waterslide and Get Wet

Yes, you can really do this!

There’s no better way to keep cool while having fun than a waterslide. Unleash your inner child and see how far you can slide. Waterslide rentals for next summer are expected to book up quickly, so it’s worth looking into to make sure you don’t miss out on the fun!

5. Novelty Aprons

Show your guests who’s cooking! Novelty aprons are a great way to make your nominated chefs stand out with pride as they toss meat over the barbecue to their heart’s content.

6. Flamingo Toss Ring Game

Ever felt like tossing a ring over a flamingo?

We don’t think a real flamingo would enjoy it, but now you can satisfy those desires with this ultimate party game. Quick set up, and great fun for everyone to enjoy!

7. Food That Doesn’t Look Like Food

Here’s one you can try and make yourself, but it might end up looking inedible either way.

If you’re a great chef, baker, or sculptor, see if you can make some delicious treats that look like something completely different. Maybe you want to create a cake that looks like a sombrero or a remote-control shaped burger?

This may be the golden ticket to Rememberville you’ve been looking for!

8. Giant Inflatable Iceberg

If you happen to own a small ocean (don’t we all), the giant inflatable iceberg will make your party stand out way more than the 10% a real iceberg stands out.

Don’t forget to purchase some lifejackets too! Otherwise, your party will end up sinking like the Titanic.

A Backyard Summer Party to Remember

Whatever it is that life throws at you, whether that’s viruses or a poor work-life balance, it’s more important to share quality time with friends and family than ever. Bring on the backyard Summer party!

When it comes to numbers and letters, he can be a little clueless, but Read More

Hippie Pizza + video

Two things spinned in my head when I woke up Wednesday morning. Both were related to pizza. I had fallen asleep while watching the first episode of David Chang’s new Netflix series Ugly Delicious. Pizza and authenticity was the theme but the first thought in my head was actually pie. Chang visits a pizza chef in Brooklyn that makes a case for traditional American-Italian toppings but what fascinated me more than his arguments was that he always referred to his pizzas as ”pies”. Apparently they sometimes do that in the US. Why did I not know that? I’m gonna say Read More
