The warm, summer months are here, which means it’s time to plan fun outdoor parties for your loved ones with summer birthdays. Use our personalized birthday party ideas to create custom invitations, supplies, decorations, and party favors that truly commemorate your guest of honor.

From bright and colorful kids’ birthday party accessories to custom drinkware and supplies adults use to cut loose, get our best summer birthday party ideas to help you celebrate those you love in style.

1. Start with custom invites

Forget about boring, store-bought invitations. With personalized invites, you can create your own unique custom party invitations from a range of festive designs that fit your summer theme. With a variety of font choices, photo and message layouts, and bright color options, you have the creative power to turn your artistic vision into the perfect invitations.

2. Stock up on unique party supplies

Once the invitations are sent out and the RSVPs start flowing in, it’s time to snag the right personalized party supplies. Customize a colorful party banner to create an ideal photo op that will encourage everyone to capture selfies and snapshots of the special occasion on camera.

Order plenty of custom napkins to accompany the food and cake you plan to serve to hungry friends and family. Keep guests hydrated in the heat with water bottles featuring custom labels, and dress up adult beverages with personalized drinkware, wine bottle labels, and fun wine glass charms.

3. Design your own party decor

The party supplies are checked off your to-do list. Now, you can set up all your personalized summer party decorations. This is the part of the party prep process when you can really dive into your chosen theme for summer.

Fill coolers with ice and refreshing beverages, and provide classic summer mason jar glasses or festive beer bottle and can wraps for guests to use. If you’re celebrating by the pool, you can even design colorful, coordinated towels for swimmers to use when drying off, and hang a playful sign that lists your party’s special “pool rules” for an extra dose of detail. Throw in a personalized door mat and a few garden flags to offer guests a warm welcome as soon as they arrive.

4. Create great party favors

Order personalized party favors to give your guests a little something to take home with them once the festivities are over. Mason jar candles with customizable lids serve as functional favors and great reminders of your one-of-a-kind birthday bash.

If you think your attendees would prefer tasty treats, stock up on yummy candy bars with your choice of themed, customizable wrappers. Fill mini bags and boxes with goodies for family and friends to enjoy, and finish each custom party favor with a bow using our personalized satin ribbons.

With your creativity and personalized party supplies, you can throw a summer birthday party that guests will remember all year long!
