How to Host the Perfect Backyard Party, South Hackensack, New Jersey

Whether you want to host a summer barbecue with plenty of food and games for everyone to play or you’re planning to host a backyard wedding, party rentals can make matters go much more smoothly. Rather than purchasing everything you need for one-time use or borrowing from friends, you can rent everything you need and have an event planner handle the delivery and setup. You and your guests will have a lot more fun if you aren’t stressing over tiny details.

The History Behind Backyard Parties

Royal Garden Parties

The modern, American backyard party sharply contrasts its origins, which dates back to the 1860s. During this time, Queen Victoria began hosting garden parties for royals and other persons of noble rank to present debutantes and enjoy tea and sandwiches in the afternoon. When Queen Elizabeth took the throne in 1952, she ended the royals-only debutante presentations. Instead, she used the garden parties to recognize people of the general public for their service to their country. Soon, people all over Britain were hosting garden parties in their own backyards. Over time, Americans adopted this tradition and made it a much more casual affair.

How to Host the Perfect Party in Your Backyard

Choose a Theme

You don’t need to be a queen to throw an amazing party. Whether it’s to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or the start or end of summer, choose a theme. This theme expresses the importance of the occasion and gives them the opportunity to dress up in creative outfits, making your guests more likely to RSVP “yes.”

Invite the Right Number of Guests
