The rush of back-to-school excitement each August becomes a busy blur of packed schedules as students stock up on supplies, finish summer homework, and prepare to return to school. Take a break to celebrate the end of a great vacation! These Orlando event planning tips can help you throw the back-to-school bash of the summer.
Cool Down Bash
August is one of Florida’s hottest months, which can make people retreat indoors to the comfort of their air conditioner. To add an icy twist to a traditional pool party, bring in a snow cone machine, a water tag maze, or a surf machine and invite guests to cool off together.
Pre-Sports Season Bash
Before the hectic hustle of daily sports practice and games becomes the daily routine, get young athletes excited for another year with sports-themed games. The inflatable basketball challenge or soccer kick game is a great way to have fun and help teammates bond before the season officially begins.
To avoid the Florida heat and opt for a more relaxing party activity, host a movie night under the night sky with an inflatable projector screen. Guests can sit on picnic blankets and laugh together over a throwback film or new release while munching on classic snacks like popcorn or snow cones.
For The Parents
The fun of back-to-school isn’t just for kids — have parents gather for mingling and Hors D’oeurves, or to chat about the upcoming year over drinks and darts. After a long summer, everyone deserves a night out to catch up and get ready for the new school year.
