Event Idea: Midsummer Night Soirée

Summer's coming, so here's an event idea to get you in the spirit of summer - Hang the twinkle lights, light the candles, turn on the music, and set the mood for a cool Midsummer Night Soirée. This event has been quite successful in some of our urban communities, who have created a classy get-together for their neighbors on the roof or by the pool.

Set out a variety of cheeses, olives, meats, and crackers for your guests to munch on, or cater in a dinner. Create a Neighbor’s Table experience by setting one large table for guests to squeeze around to bring people into one big conversation. Then just take a deep breath, pause, and enjoy a beautiful summer night.

At CARES, we don’t do anything small. Get creative with your decorations, whether it’s cloth napkins (you can find them for less than a dollar each on Amazon, or buy the fabric yourself – with a coupon, of course – and make your own). Use candles, lanterns, and twinkle lights to set the mood, and ask a local artist if you could display their artwork (for free) to add additional ambiance.

Want more ideas? We have created a specialPinterest board to get those creative juices flowing.
