Summer time and the livin’s easy….especially in California. Good news is, it’s not too late to throw a summer bash! And as always, Archive has you covered. Browse below for 8 easy summer party ideas!


Nothing’s better than a refreshing mojito or margarita when trying to beat the heat. So why not host a party centered around cocktails? Serve up spiked lemonade or popsicles dipped in prosecco! Thankfully, we have all the drinkware you need! From goblets, to moscow mule mugs or even champagne coupes, we carry it all! And keep the beers cool in a vintage tub. There’s a drink for everybody!


Boho is all the rage right now and we are here for it! The best part is that it’s effortless to pull off. Throw some rugs on the grass, add in some poufs and a low table (like our Solana Table pictured here) and voila! You’re boho bash is ready for your flower crown totting guests.


The best part of any summer party is chatting with your friends during warm nights under the stars. Since everybody will be outside enjoying the summer evening, make sure they’re comfortable! Let Archive help design a lounge fit for your backyard. We have plenty of sofas, chairs, and benches to choose from!


Why go to a trendy and expensive restaurant for brunch when you can host it at home? Best part – it really can be bottomless! This is one of Archive’s favorite outdoor party ideas. Gather your girlfriends and have a potluck brunch! Everyone brings a bottle of champagne and a juice! Serve up the mimosas in our Blush Goblets or Coupes to really make it special.


Since you’ll be hosting outside, set up twinkle or bistro lights so the party can go on all night! We love wrapping christmas lights around trees – adds the perfect amount of glow! You can leave the lights up year round too. Like this style? Check out this Al Fresco Backyard Wedding here!


Since labor day is around the corner and we all know you can’t wear white after labor day…throw a white out party! Have all your guests wear white and have plenty of white decor. Our Milk Glass Goblets and Sonora Plate Collection are a perfect match.


Since the weather is unbeatable in Southern California, take advantage and host a movie night outdoors! Borrow a projector from a friend and watch an old school classic like Casablanca while cozying up with plenty of blankets and pillows. With the best summer event rentals in Los Angeles, Archive has you covered from the previews to the credits. Just add popcorn!


It’s what summers are known for, so why not take it to the next level. One of the classic outdoor summer party ideas is as simple as can be – a BBQ! Our Sonoma Tables and Mixed Colored Farm Chairs are basically made for backyard BBQ’s. Throw in some Enamelware and Fruit and Floral Linens and all that’s missing is the burgers and hotdogs!
