7 Tips for Back-to- School Parties

The back-to- school season can be a big transition from the days of fireworks, cookouts and poolside lounging. Coming together for an event to wind down the summer can be a fun time for all and a good way to ease into the coming school year. Hendersonville Tents Party and Event Rentals can help you throw a memorable party to say goodbye to summer.

Here are seven party ideas to consider:

1. Back-to-School Bash

Back-to-school events should feature plenty of fun for your returning students. While adults can often entertain themselves with food, cocktails and conversation, the kids will normally have some energy to burn off. Hendersonville Tents has got you covered! They’ll help you plan activities for the kids, including their fun game rentals. Giving the kids some stimulating team-oriented activities can put them in the mood for school instead of seeing it as a chore.

2. Event Schedule

If you plan an itinerary for your event, post it somewhere or give out copies to your guests. Keep things moving and engaging. For example, you may want to have a meet-and-greet social with snacks for about an hour, games and competitions for an hour or two, a main course and then maybe a dance, an auction or a contest. And when you rent a tent, you’ll have a focus for your entertainment and shade for your guests.

3. Fall Fest

While it may not be cold or crisp yet, it’s still time to gear up for the school year. One way to look forward to autumn is to prepare classic fall dishes, especially ones with local flair. Break out the Brunswick stews, chowders and apple ciders! It can break the monotony of summer cuisine and get people excited about the coming school year.

4. Kids vs. Adults

Back-to-school time can often make kids feel like their parents are saying that all the fun is over. Shake up this mindset by holding a few competitions. A game of soccer? Softball? Frisbee keep-away? Set the game to match the age of the children, and you’re off and running! The adults will enjoy the interaction, and the kids will be thrilled to work together, as they express the “no grownups allowed” mindset.

5. Family Feud

Choose up teams while you’re the host. Prepare the questions in advance, and let everyone play. You can also mix it up by cultivating some inter-family competition. This can be a fun way to promote pride in your clan while keeping everyone active and participating.

6. Cool Prizes

The chance to win prizes can make competitions even more fun. Whether it’s for cooking, a three-legged race or one last water gun fight, prizes up the ante just a little bit more. Back-to-school-oriented prizes like wild pens, cell phone skins, backpacks or cool accessories can help kids get more excited about the coming year while adding fun to your event.

7. A Last Hurrah

School is on the horizon, but it’s basically still hot out. The last days of summer can be really beautiful. It’s a great time to cherish the outdoors. And a tent to fit the size of your event makes it memorable. Then go all out with waterslides, tiki torches, lemonade and the works. Whatever theme you go with, Hendersonville Tents can help you plan and execute the perfect end-of-summer celebration.
