Park Party Perfection: Ideas for Throwing an Epic Party in the Great Outdoors

I have always Loved all Types of Parties. My Family Celebrates Birthdays, Holidays, and other Milestones! It’s so Fun to Create Amazing Party Spaces, with Decorations, Food, and Games for the Guests to Enjoy.

But not only to I Love different reasons for Celebrating, I also Love different Party Locations.

Many of my Customers have been asking for Ideas about how to Throw a Party in the Park! When the Weather is Beautiful, it makes sense to let the Guests Enjoy the Great Outdoors.

I’ve compiled Some Amazing Inspiration from Past Parties from my Customers and my Family as well as a few New Ideas. If you’re looking for tips for a Park Party, I have them here for you!

Decorating at a Park Party

It’s easy to Decorate Inside a House. After all, there’s a ceiling, walls, and plenty of surfaces. If you want to throw a Park Party, you’ll need to make use of existing structures or bring your own.

And trust me, you’ll want some sort of Structure. Even if you don’t plan to do a lot of decorating, a Pavilion, Gazebo, or Tent will provide Shade and Shelter if you need it! A Table is also important so you have a place for Food and Gifts!

Make sure to Visit the Park Location so you know if there’s already a Party Area, like a Pavilion with Picnic Tables, or if you need to bring your own Tent and Folding Tables with Chairs. If you're near Brisbane, Qld like us, Check out the Brisbane Parks Finder.

The Great News is that with some sort of structure, even a fence, and a table or two, you’ll have an easy time Decorating for your Park Party!

Park Party Decoration Ideas

When Decorating for your Park Party, you can use the same methods that I use for Indoor Parties. Think of your Party Theme, and Choose Theme Colours for Tablecloths, Balloons, and other Supplies.

Just remember that anything you set up Outside needs to be tied down well so it doesn’t blow away in a gust of wind! Tie Balloons, Posters, Bunting, and Banners tightly to structures with string or wire, and make sure to weigh down Tablecloths and other light objects.

For this Bananas in Pyjamas Birthday Party, they’ve made excellent use of the existing Pavillion and Added their own Table! You can see that the Blue and Yellow Balloons are weighed down and the Tablecloths are tied so they won’t blow away.
