Guys, time is fast approaching June. Many people have already started to celebrate the arrival of summer. Along with the arrival of summer comes the exciting month of Pride. Now more people are participating and celebrating Pride Month together. This includes participating in parades, donations, and more. If you want to celebrate differently, why not throw an outdoor Pride Month party? This year, I bring you the most special Pride party ideas. Make a great impression on your guests. These great outdoor pride month party ideas will allow you to throw a great event. Trust me, your guests will love all these elements of the party.
First Code of Decoration - Rainbow
What's the first thing that comes to your mind when it comes to decorating themes? Yes, of course, it will be a rainbow. How can Pride Month be without the presence of rainbow elements? Apart from the rainbow flags that you can place in the front yard. You can use various colors of balloons and flowers to put together different rainbow colors. Of course, rainbow colors piled up together may look too much. So, you can change the tablecloth to rainbow colors. And the table can be decorated with white flowers, which ensures the theme and does not look cluttered.
The white party tent, which is essential for outdoor parties, can create the necessary space for you to rest. Also, achieve the function of waterproof and sun protection. The best part is that the whole tent is white. You and your friends can enjoy decorating it. For example, you can paint this outdoor party tent in the colors of the rainbow. Or you can hang ribbons and colorful string lights all over it. Such a unique, original design of the tent will be the biggest highlight of the party.
Pride Month Theme Menu
Next, take the party to another level with a Pride Month-themed menu. Use strawberries, kiwi, grapes, mangoes, and other fruits as appetizers. Don't forget to prepare the party essentials, too - a variety of drinks. As all of our articles on hosting a party suggest. Always have plenty of water and ice, and June is the beginning of summer. Guests will need to be well hydrated. Of course, non-alcoholic drinks such as lemonade or iced tea will also be popular choices.
Another main character of the Pride Month-themed menu is dessert. It can be a cake with rainbow filling or cupcakes with different colored frosting. A unicorn-shaped cake or a heart-shaped waffle. A wide selection of ice cream flavors. All of these will be the best energy supplement in the middle of the party. Especially they all look beautiful. With such menu, your guests will be amazed at the sophistication of the party.
Another thing that is essential to the party is the activities. It's Pride Month, and dressing up is certainly a must. Have a contest and dress up according to the theme, which can be costumes plus makeup. Everyone's appearance will cause gasps of surprise. This is a great opportunity to showcase creativity and ideas. The more creative the idea, the better. Everyone is a participant as well as a judge, and the final vote is to choose the best costume for the occasion.
It is also a good idea to build a photo booth. The venue can be set up directly in the canopy tent. The best photos can be taken in the shade. Of course, as a party organizer. You can also prepare all kinds of props for the costume contest. For example, wigs, rainbow sunglasses, accessories, etc. You can also prepare a rainbow flag for guests to use when taking pictures.
