Summertime is one of our favorite seasons for parties and, with Partytrick, we make hosting easy down to the smallest details. Here, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite parties to throw this summer each paired with the perfect playlist to set the mood.

Perfect Picnic

Grab your blanket, basket, and besties, and head to the hills, the beach, or your backyard! Pack a delicious meal and enjoy an afternoon or sunset surrounded by good vibes. 

Playlist: It’s the summer of love, romantic or otherwise so embrace the vibes with this playlist filled with music that will make you feel like you’re living out a real romcom while you nibble on charcuterie and freshly made sandwiches and wash it all down with refreshing wine or mocktails. Listen on Spotify

Bouquet Bar

Take advantage of the gorgeous summer blooms and brighten your space with a DIY Bouquet Party. Gather your best buds, thrift some vases, and arrange your favorite florals for this iris-istible flower arranging gathering! Perfect for a girls' night in, a bridal shower, or just because.

Playlist: As Miley Cyrus said, “I can buy myself flowers” Who better to jam out to while you build your own beautiful bouquets than our queen, Miley, and other amazing female vocalists who’ve got the (flower) power! Listen on Spotify 

Become a Super Neighbor

Summer is the perfect time to be the social butterfly you’ve always wanted to be. Host a neighborhood block party to make new friends. And who knows, you might even score a homemade casserole or fresh fruit from your neighbors’ gardens out of it! 

Playlist: ​​When hosting a party with potential strangers, it's important to have a playlist that appeals to everyone. We love an eclectic mix of rock classics, pop hits, and summery techno to set the mood and spark conversations. Listen on Spotify

Amalfi Coast

If your summer plans don’t involve a trip to Europe, don’t worry! You can still transport yourself to the cool blues of the Amalfi Coast without the hassle of the airport with this romantic dinner party inspired by the Amalfi. Elevate your space the Italian way with Mediterranean blues, lush florals, vibrant citrus, and decadent pasta and seafood dishes. 

Playlist: Finding the right party soundtrack is vital to setting the tone and making the entire party experience feel cohesive and transformative. Live out your (non-murderous) Talented Mr. Ripley Dreams with this Italian jazz playlist. Listen on Spotify 

Coastal Caviar Clambake

Embrace your linen and wicker dreams and host a quintessential summer dinner party filled with fresh seafood from clams and oysters to caviar and sashimi, blooming hydrangeas, seashell-inspired dinnerware, and the glow of a firepit. 

Playlist: If you’re in your coastal grandmother era, this is the perfect playlist to show off your hosting chops. Give Martha Stewart and Nancy Meyers a run for their money with these sophisticated tunes. Listen on Spotify
