Hosting a party in the sweltering summer heat can result in melted cheese, wilted lettuce, and sweat-drenched guests – not the ideal scenario for a memorable gathering. At Chez Vous Caterers & Party Rentals, we’ve honed our expertise to ensure your summer event is all about fun, not the sun.
The Challenges of Midday Summer Parties
Imagine the scene: a beautiful summer afternoon, but your perfectly crafted cheese board is turning into a gooey mess, the lettuce in your salad is wilting, and your guests are too busy fanning themselves to enjoy the party. Scheduling a summer party between 1-5pm exposes your event to the day’s most intense heat, presenting a slew of uncomfortable and potentially costly challenges.
The Solutions: Consider Later Party Times & Adequate Shading
Why not move your party to later in the day when the heat has begun to dissipate? This simple rescheduling can make a world of difference for your guests’ comfort. Additionally, providing shade is essential. Think tents and umbrellas to shield your guests and food from direct sun exposure. Cooling equipment like fans and air conditioners are effective too, but bear in mind these solutions can be cost-prohibitive.
The Importance of a Plan B
Just as you’d have a backup plan for rain, it’s equally important to prepare for extreme heat. Consider having an indoor option available, or be prepared to reschedule for a cooler day. Prioritize the comfort and safety of your guests when planning your event – a little foresight goes a long way in ensuring a successful party.
