Tips to Beat the Heat at Your Summer Party

Outdoor parties are one of the best things about summer. Whether it’s a backyard barbecue, a graduation celebration, or a wedding, the beauty of summer simply can’t be matched by any other time of year. However, the heat that accompanies all that natural beauty is often severe and can make any party a miserable affair. There are lots of things we can do to combat the overly-warm temperatures of this time of year, though! 

Here are a few items that can be a big help in beating the heat at your summer party:

  • Fans and air conditioners
  • Cold drinks and treats
  • Water games, such as dunk tanks and slip-n-slides
  • Misters
  • Tents

When it comes to tent rentals, keep a few things in mind. A tent with a clear top will magnify the heat under the tent, while a white or light-colored tent will provide shade and lower temperatures up to 10 degrees. Fans can be attached to your tent to circulate air if your selection doesn’t include side panels, and you can also close the tent with side-walls and use an air conditioner. Misting systems can easily be added, as well, for an added cool benefit. 

If you want to be especially eco-friendly, consider an evaporative cooling system. These are quieter, more energy efficient than regular air conditioners and easy to install. They are ideal for open outdoor spaces, and perfectly suited for hot, dry conditions. Using this kind of unit will keep moisture in the air, and that means comfort. 

Make sure you provide lots of cold or frozen drinks and treats when it is hot outside, even if your guests are going to be inside a tent. If you are serving alcohol, make sure you have plenty of water available since alcohol is dehydrating. 

Water games, such as dunk tanks and water balloon fights, are fun ways to get the best of a hot situation, while adding to happy memories. If your party will include families with children, these kinds of activities are sure to be a huge hit. The photographs that will be taken will be great for social media, too!
