Food Ideas for a Summer Fun Party

Inflatable-Beach-Ball-CoolerServe easy to prepare summer fun beach food. Grill hot dogs and hamburgers or go a little bit more festive with crab legs and melted butter! Add some cole slaw, baked beans, potato salad, corn on the cob, fruit kabobs or a watermelon bowl filled with the season’s freshest fruit, and lots of munchies. Beach pails make terrific serving buckets.

For dessert, serve frozen bananas on a stick dipped in chocolate, snow cones, and a delightful summer berry “fruit pizza”.

If the party is for kids, serve their food in individual Beach Pails. Use a paint pen to write each child’s name on a bucket, and fill each pail with a juice box, wrapped hot dog, goldfish crackers, fruit kabob and a beach ball! They will never forget the best ever backyard party hosted by your family!

Fill a cooler, wheelbarrow, or metal tub with ice and load it with plenty of soda and bottles of water. As an alternative, offer your guests daiquiris and fruit smoothies – complete with mini umbrellas!

Don’t forget to stock up on lots of ice – plan on approximately 1 pound per adult guest for the party!

Have bowls sitting around with individually wrapped Life-Savers™ candy for those sudden sugar attacks!

Finish the night off with this “Pool Fun Cake” – it’s sure to float you right to the top for creativity! Bake a double layer 8 or 9 inch round cake. For extra fun, use a white cake mix and add a few drops of blue food coloring to the batter. When cool, frost the entire cake with blue tinted frosting. Add to the top a wafer cookie as a diving board, a gum ball or two for beach balls, and gummy rings as life preservers. Use a small figurine or doll floating on top of the pool in a fruit roll up raft! If you want to add a little beach to your summer scene, dabble a small amount of brown sugar in one section of the cake and add a paper umbrella or two! Don’t forget to serve this one up with a mound of refreshing ice cream!
