Exciting Outdoor Birthday Party Ideas You’ll Love


Birthdays (whatever age you’re turning!) are always a cause for celebration. We know that with Summer on the not-so-distant horizon, celebrating with friends and family members in a state that somewhat resembles normality is looking like more and more of a possibility, and having plenty of outdoor birthday party ideas ready to go is essential for making sure you plan the best birthday party ever!

Now, we hope you’ve been using this global pandemic to your advantage, and using all of your spare time of solitude wisely. By wisely, we mean learning everything it takes to become the ultimate outdoor party host, of course. If you’re a little stuck (or you just haven’t revised!), here are 3 of the best-kept secrets you should know in order to execute your outside party ideas to perfection. 

1) Ice Is Essential

We’ve all been there: every time you nip to the shops you tell yourself you’ll pick up a tonne next time, and then you don’t. Before you know it, you’re hopping from supermarket to supermarket on the hottest day of the year, practically begging the poor shop worker to check if they have one more bag out the back. You know they never do. This time, instead of reliving this nightmare, make sure you either prepare lots of ice cubes in advance or stock up super early. 

2) Bugs Are A Nightmare

Get the fly swatter at the ready, and arm yourself with an almost insane amount of mosquito repellent: Summer is on the way, and if we’ve learnt anything from years gone by, it’s that you can never be too prepared to fight the legion of insects that are set to destroy your outdoor birthday party. Protect your food with netting, coat yourself in bug spray, and enjoy the warmer months in style. 

3) Style And Substance

Top 3 ‘Cool’ Outside Birthday Party Ideas For Summer

1) Summer Dining Alfresco

Dining ‘alfresco’ just sounds suave and sophisticated, let alone actually going ahead and doing it! Eating outside and being at one with nature really is a Summertime delight, and experiencing this with family and friends is scientifically proven to bring loved ones closer together! So, why not give dining outside in the sunshine a try, and consider this outdoor birthday idea a definite food-for-thought. 

One thing that’s incredibly important when it comes to outdoor dining (besides complying with the current national social distancing guidelines and serving up some top-notch grub!) is the atmosphere and the ambience you create at your alfresco dinner party while using the outdoor space you have available to your advantage. 

This isn’t just any old summer birthday party! Balancing comfort with style isn’t always an easy tightrope to walk, but with a mixture of soft cushions and furnishings, sturdy weatherproof furniture and picnic tables, and iconic decorative touches, you’ll have a fantastic party on your hands.

2) Throw An Eastwood Hall Outdoor Party 

Have we mentioned that we have 26 acres of stunning land here at Eastwood Hall? If not, let’s correct that, shall we? We boast an incredible amount of picturesque garden space which is just perfect for hosting a number of exciting outdoor birthday party ideas this Summer.

You’re sure to get the best deal from us at Eastwood Hall, and it’s always best to have a look at what offers we have available for you to use to your best advantage.

3) Outside Campfire Party

Get toasty this Summer with a bonfire backyard party that is bound to go down a storm. Campfire parties are a good idea all Summer long, however, there’s something about a bonfire occurring as Summer begins to wind down that has a little magic all of its own. 

One of the very best things about a campfire, however, has to be the amount of sticky marshmallow-y s’mores you can eat with no judgement whatsoever by your peers. If you really want to wow your guests, consider assembling your own s’more building station for all your friends and family to partake in. 

This outdoor birthday party idea also works well as an evening do: start off your day with a beach party or a pool party and wind down the day with a low-key backyard bash. Bring indoor furniture outdoors, and make the most out of spending time with your friends.

Of course, it’s also important to remember to stick to government guidelines surrounding COVID-19. Keep in mind that you’ll need to comply with the applicable social distancing rules, and keep your and your guest’s safety as the top priority.
