It’s hot. It’s sunny. It’s officially iced tea season. You know what that means – time to get outside and party. So how do you throw the ultimate summer get-down? We partnered with Joe Fresh to come up with a list of everything you need to celebrate the hot season. Bust out that BBQ, brew up a massive pitcher of iced tea and check out these refreshing warm-weather essentials.
1) A killer guest list
First, decide what kind of party you want to throw. A family-friendly afternoon BBQ? A classy summer soirée? A wild all-night-long dance party? This will help you narrow down your needs in terms of food, drinks and set-up. Then invite the perfect combo of people to get things going. Your BFF to help you in the kitchen, your party animal friend to start the dancing, your cousin with the new baby to make things extra adorable – what better excuse to get ‘em all out than a summer bash?
2) A perfect party theme
Get things on track with an awesome party theme. Love dancing? Make a Latin playlist and throw a fiesta. Or go classic high tea, complete with finger sandwiches and fancy hats. If it’s a potluck, let your guests know what you’re thinking and see what they come up with.
3) An amazing iced tea menu
Keep your guests refreshed with iced tea that’ll blow their minds. Try brewing up a batch of a crowdpleasing fan fave like Green Passionfruit or Maracuja Mango, or check out our full selection of iceable blends – including limited edition teas like aloe-packed Fruity Oasis. Hosting kids? Stock up on caffeine-free infusions like Caribbean Crush in ready-to-steep pitcher sachets.
4) Your favourite summer outfit
Whether it’s a sundress or a breezy blouse, nothing keeps you cool like lightweight cotton in an eye-catching print. Dress this midi up or down to go from garden party to pool party.
5) An all-in-one iced tea pitcher
Want to steep, ice and serve iced tea in one glorious pitcher? Get your hands on the Iced Tea Pitcher Press and say hello to delicious drinks at every backyard party. It’s hands-down the best way to make iced tea for a crowd.
6) Serious sun protection
Don’t lose that youthful glow! Protect yourself with a high SPF, some cool shades and a stylish sun hat. And make sure to have a cute cover-up handy so you can keep things going after the sun goes down.
