The Mansions at Spring Creek, Garland, TX  Throw a themed party this summer at your apartment. We are sharing a few ideas in today's blog post.

Summer is the perfect time to catch up with friends and have some fun here in Garland, TX. Why not have a party at your apartment? We are sharing a few themed party ideas that you need to try this summer here at The Mansions at Spring Creek.


Traditional BBQ with Hot Dog Bar

Grill up your favorite hot dogs at our outdoor entertainment kitchen and put out some favorite (and unique) toppings for the perfect hot dog bar. Pull out the usual sauces along with a variety of peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, onions, sauerkraut, guacamole, and/or bacon. Make signs with suggested hot dog combinations. There are so many options out there, so be creative!


Ice Cream Soda Bar and Water Games

An Ice Cream Soda bar can be perfect for the Fourth of July or for a hot afternoon with friends. Buy some plastic 18 oz. cups, canned whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, red and blue sodas (Jones soda is perfect and fun for this), maraschino cherries, and utensils. Find a cute bucket and fill it with ice to store the ice cream and sodas. Water games are a great addition to this party idea and a great way to cool off. Have a water balloon relay, play sponge ball dodgeball, or compete in pool volleyball.


Tropical Party

Host a tropical party with fresh fruit, party games, and painted pineapples. Make this fresh and delicious rainbow salad as a treat for the party. You’ll need melons, kiwis, berries, pineapples, grapes, and whatever else you’d like. Decorate your party with these fun-and-easy painted pineapples. Lastly, plan some fun outdoor games such as bocce ball or have a limbo contest.


S’mores Bar and Movie Night

Invite friends and family and have the perfect s’mores bar with an outdoor movie. You can purchase an inflatable movie screen and a projector for the perfect outdoor movie. We suggest summer movies such as The Sandlot, The Goonies, The Endless Summer, What About Bob?, Secondhand Lions, and Super 8. Buy the classic s’more options as well as some unique choices; use chocolate graham crackers or different types of candy bars instead of the traditional graham cracker and chocolate bar.
