One of the most difficult parts of planning a party is deciding on the theme. But once you do, the rest just naturally falls into place!

Since I know how exhausting and time-consuming party planning is, I’m saving you a bunch of time by giving you a bunch of themes that work perfectly for outdoor parties.

You can skip down to the list of themes. Or, read through my party planning tips first!

Best Places For Outdoor Parties

Where is the best place to host an outdoor party? That depends on quite a few factors. So, let’s look at the most popular outdoor party locations, and what kind of parties are best to host there.

  • Backyard – this is the perfect spot if you are inviting a small group of people (unless you have a massive yard).
  • Park – There is less freedom with decorating, but it can hold a lot more people and it’s often free.
  • Party Venues – Some venues offer equipment rental and everything else you might need for your party.
  • Lakes or Beaches – These are also better for smaller groups of people.

It’s best to match your outdoor party themes to the location. So, pick the theme first, and then choose where to host it.

If cost is a factor, then consider keeping the guest list smaller and have it at your (or someone’s) house.

Even the smallest outdoor parties can have a fun and creative theme!

You just have the pick the perfect one. Then, plan the food, decorations, and invitations all around it.

Where To Buy Party Supplies

Even though each theme will have specific decorations and supplies, there are things that you’ll need for any outdoor party that you host.

For things like paper plates, party cups, and other food supplies, Amazon will be a great place to shop. Get them in bulk and you’ll save a lot of money.

For more personalized decor, check out Etsy. Not only are you supporting small businesses, but you might even get discount codes from the shops.

Check around and price different rental companies for things like chairs and tables. Read the Google reviews and talk to people who have had weddings or other parties.

And don’t forget about thrift shops and flea markets! For patriotic parties, you can usually find some really eccentric (and cheap) decor that is priced way lower than Amazon.
