We just love, love, love summer parties at Just 4 Fun Party Rentals in Santa Barbara, California. A summer party means that we can share yummy, fresh, seasonal foods with our family; catch up with our closest friends; and destress in nature while watching the sunset over cocktails at the beach or pool side. Here are a few of our favorite outdoor party ideas for fun, easy and safe summer parties in 2022.
Classic Picnic/ BBQ
Nothing says “hello summer” more than a classic picnic or BBQ. Whether you picnic for the 4th of July or BBQ for your Dad’s summer birthday party, consider tablecloth rentals and rent tables and chairs for your guests’ ultimate comfort. The red and white check tablecloths, sometimes called “gingham”, are very cute table dressings. They are evocative of summer fun and scream for ice cream and picnic foods to be enjoyed upon them. If you want to mix it up, choose blue and white check tablecloths for a nautical look, or get NYC style sleek and stylish with back and white check tablecloths. If you prefer the natural look for your picnic or BBQ, then go for farm table rentals with a vineyard crossback chair or oak cross back chairs and skip the tablecloths all together.
While you wait for the fireworks or birthday cake to be served, you can entertain your guests with: corn hole game rental, croquet lawn game or bocce ball lawn game. Don’t like games? Then consider a bounce house rental and watch the kids play as you enjoy an icy drink under a patio umbrella or be entertained with your friends gathering around a Santa Maria style Charcoal BBQ Grill 5 ft – the ultimate grill master’s grill! (Just say yes to the grill, you won’t regret it!)
Pro tip: Always consider the weather and your guests age for outdoor parties! You can get a portable outdoor air conditioner rental or party tent rentals if the sun is really strong or there is high humidity. Likewise, you can get patio heater rentals (propane patio heaters or infrared patio heaters) if your party goes into the night, it gets chilly or windy or if you have elderly guests.
Outdoor Movie Theater
Everyone loves our 16 ft Outdoor Movie Screen and Projector Package! A local AV rental services company can provide you with the outdoor movie screen rentals you need. Your movie theater might include: an inflatable movie screen, portable projector rentals, a speaker rental package (that includes a microphone for announcements) and any other AV equipment rental needed to bring your outdoor movie theater dream to life. You can rent chairs at a party supply rentals company near you – anyone who carries party chair rentals should have a variety of seating options available.
Watch the classics and relax with your friends and family without having to share the couch. Plus, have the added safety and space of being outdoors. Super fun movie theater add ons to consider are:
- Director’s Chairs
- 30 ft Red Carpet Runner
- Propane Patio Heaters
- 6 oz Popcorn Machine
- Pizza & Churro Warmer
- Nacho Machine
- Concession Equipment Rental

Summer parties wouldn’t be complete without mentioning summer weddings. We noticed a pandemic trend where people were getting married at the courthouse in a private civil service and then having small mini-monies for their nearest and dearest. These small and intimate summer wedding parties can be very special and are great for those on a budget or who have safety as a top concern. Some cute mini-mony wedding decor ideas are:
- Paper Lanterns or String Lighting
- Confetti Cannons
- Balloon Arch Decorations
- Wedding Arch Rentals
- Metal Wedding Chupa
- Portable Stage Rentals
- Photo Booth
- Wedding Chair Rentals
- Vineyard Crossback Chair matched with Farm Table Rentals
