Summertime Entertaining in Denver

June 25, 2024

Summer in Denver is the perfect time to gather friends and family for a relaxed and enjoyable outdoor get-together. With the beautiful weather and endless possibilities for entertainment, there's no better place to create lasting memories. Here are some ideas to make your next outdoor gathering a hit without breaking the bank.

  • Charcuterie Boards: Charcuterie boards are a fantastic way to start your outdoor party. These easy-to-assemble platters offer a variety of cured meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts, and spreads that cater to everyone's tastes. Encourage your guests to mix and match flavors while enjoying the casual atmosphere of your backyard or patio. Colorado Peaches will be available soon and cannot be beat! They pair well with sweet flavors, savory flavors, and in baked goods. They will compliment different cheeses and make everyone at your party happy. 
  • Fire Up the Grill:  No summer gathering is complete without firing up the grill. Whether you prefer burgers, hot dogs, or veggie skewers, grilling is an easy way to feed a crowd while keeping the kitchen cool. Encourage guests to bring their favorite side dishes or desserts to share, making it a collaborative and stress-free event. In addition to main proteins, include some shishito peppers in a grill pan, grill some onions, and maybe even some fruit. Give guests new experiences but keep it simple- everyone will be impressed! Grilled pizza is always a hit, too.
  • Outdoor Games: Keep your guests entertained with a variety of outdoor games suitable for all ages. Set up a badminton or volleyball net, organize a friendly game of cornhole or horseshoes, or create a giant Jenga  set using 2x4 blocks. These activities encourage friendly competition and laughter, making your gathering even more memorable.
  • DIY Sundae Bar: Create a do-it-yourself sundae bar for a fun and interactive dessert option. Provide a variety of ice cream flavors, toppings, and sauces, and let your guests create their own masterpieces. This is a perfect way to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth while keeping the atmosphere light and enjoyable. (Throw some of those grilled peaches on the table! Nothing compliments them quite like plain vanilla ice cream.)
  • Outdoor Movie Night: Transform your backyard into an outdoor movie theater for a unique and budget-friendly entertainment option. Hang a white sheet or use a portable projector screen, set up some comfortable seating with blankets and pillows, and project a family-friendly movie. Don't forget the popcorn and snacks! Some of our favorites for summer include The Sandlot, The Parent Trap, Dennis the Menace, A League of Their Own, and October Sky

Entertaining at home doesn't have to be stressful or expensive. By embracing the laid-back atmosphere of summer in Denver and focusing on simple, crowd-pleasing activities, you can create an unforgettable experience for your loved ones. Fire up the grill, set out the charcuterie board, and enjoy the company of friends and family in the comfort of your own backyard.
