There are few things in this life that are better than throwing a fun summer party with friends - especially if the party is themed! If you're ready to retire the themes you used in college, EVA is here to assist in the summer party theme brainstorming. From an easy backyard barbecue to an 80's Prom-inspired party that will really take you back to the glory days, these summer party theme ideas make for an event that your group chat won't forget any time soon.

Here are our top 5 summer party ideas to round out the 2022 summer season.

1. It's Five O'Clock Somewhere Summer Dinner Party

Throw on some Jimmy Buffett tunes and light the tiki torches! Invite your guests and tell them the dress code is full of Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, and lots of floral leis. Don't skimp on the decor-I'm talking hibiscus flower decals, palm tree cardboard cut-outs, coconuts, and more-for the ultimate summer luau party. If the venue and budget permit, book a steel drum band to create your tropical paradise.

2. Go Back to The Roaring '20s this Summer

It's the Summer of 2022! Queue up your favorite version of The Great Gatsby movie and play it on mute in the background. Blast the soundtrack or better yet, book a jazz band to play live 1920's and Gatsby hits, and transport your guests back in time to the ultimate party. This theme is great for a summer birthday party in your 20s, or just to celebrate the decade!If you needed an excuse to go all out in the glam department and pop some champagne, this is it.

3. Boot Scootin' Boogie Summer Party

Turn your party into the honky tonk that Brooks & Dunn sang about! There will be no shortage of fun by throwing a good old-fashioned country-themed party. Pull out those boots, grab your cowboy hats, and get all of your guests dancing. You can even book line dance instructors to lead the way and teach crowd-favorite routines. Looking for less western, more sparkle? Channel your inner Kacey Musgraves and throw a "Space Cowboy" themed party! Keep the boots, but add in glitter, fun colors, and some disco balls to really amp up the decorations. This would scream summertime party!

4. Night on the Jersey Shore Summer Party

Cab's here! Pull out hair gel and tanning lotion, and queue up the EDM because you just brought your guests to the Jersey Shore. Book a DJ to turn your venue into a nightclub. "Party's here" with this summer party idea! Have your guests come ready with their Jersey Shore nicknames and dance the night away thanks to your awesome DJ.

5. 80's Prom Party

Who needs chaperones when you're all of age? Pull out your ruffles, frill, and baby blue suits because we are taking it back to 1980 with this summer party idea. Add some Springsteen and Prince onto your playlist and don't forget to have everyone request their favorite throwback hits, including some slow songs. Need some party food ideas? Set up a few tables full of sugar cookies, pinwheel sandwiches, chicken nuggets, and punch bowls. The best part? You can legally spike the punch.
