Fun Essentials For Your Summer Backyard Party

Since having kids, I have a whole new appreciation for entertaining at home. It’s easier than packing the kids up and heading to the beach especially with nap times. If you’re in the same boat, a summer backyard get-together is a must.

With that said…we’ve been having a little too much fun over here this summer at #CampStuber! It’s much needed! If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen my most recent impulse buy. And, you guessed it! The kids definitely talked me into getting the water slide but I didn’t need much persuading. Confession: after a few glasses of rose, it’s just as fun for the adults, too. Yes, it definitely happened!

And, of course I had to get these unicorn, swan, and rainbow pool floats! And, again…I would say I got them with just the kids in mind, but come on. I had to join in on this Instagram trend at some point!

If you’re looking to entertain in your backyard this summer, scroll down for my top essentials to add to your pre-party shopping list. Even those little fun touches (like the floats!) add a huge difference.
