The Summer of Staycations
We’re ready when you are for a Summer Staycation!
PLANIT – Summer Staycation
Thinking of what to do during your summer staycation? Think no further as PLANIT has you covered with these memorable ideas. Whether it’s planning a summer staycation with your work colleagues or with friends or with family, these 8 ideas can be incorporated into any summer staycation.
1. Summer Cocktail Making Party
Why not reunite with work colleagues, friends or family with a small get together in your garden. Dress up and make some fresh fruity cocktails to kickstart your staycation. If some guests are still uncomfortable with meeting up in small groups then they can join in virtually and make the cocktail from the comfort of their own home.
2. Themed Parties
Get all guests involved and have a themed party. You can incorporate costumes, props, food, drinks, and much more. Let your imagination run wild and why not include a best dressed competition. Themed parties are a fabulous idea for all age groups.
3. Drive-in movie
Whether it’s attending a drive-in movie or recreating it at home, both are an extremely enjoyable day out or evening. You can create a drive-in movie at home by making cardboard box cars. A fun creative way for the whole family to get involved in. Don’t forget the popcorn and the sweet station! However, if you fancy getting out of the house then why not check out Ayrfield Club & Bar, Leopardstown Racecourse, or Junction 6 Castleknock for some drive-in movies.
4. Summer Olympics
Just because the olympics was postponed until 2021 doesn’t mean you can’t hold your own one. Get everyone moving and interacting with endless amounts of sports. Even though it’s a competition, there will definitely be endless amounts of laughter. Stay active and have fun!
I think we all might need a change of scenery during this summer staycation and camping is just the perfect idea. Set-up in the back garden or at a camping grounds and enjoy catching up around the crackling fire. We recommend bringing marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate to make some tasty s’mores!
6. Poker night
Bring the casino to your home for a fun night. Go all out and rent some casino props such as a blackjack table, a roulette wheel and table, or a wheel of fortune. Turn chips in for prizes instead of money at the end and be creative with the prize ideas.
7. Wine and cheese event
Bring the winery to you and have a wine tasting evening accompanied by some tasty cheese. Learn about the wine and the cheese with guests and why not play a quiz at the end to see who learned the most about what they ate and drank for the evening.
Host a cooking night and allow each guest to bring a dish that represents them or their heritage. Mingle over the buffet of different foods and enjoy an evening of food and laughter.
