How to Plan the Perfect Summer Party

Plan the Perfect Summer Party

Summer is right around the corner, which means now is the perfect time to start planning the ideal party. There are three key parts to throwing the greatest party of the season. Here are a few tips from us here at Plaza Lincoln to help you plan the perfect summer party.

Food

A perfect summer party calls for festive, seasonal ingredients that make the mouth water. Visit a local farmer’s market for some of the freshest ingredient the area. Try to pick foods that can be prepared ahead of time so you don’t spend the entire party cooking.

Invitations

Letting people know just how amazing the party will be starts with the invitations. Use themed invitations to set the tone for the gathering and give people a small taste of what to expect. Bright colors, festive designs, and hand-written (but legible) details are a good start. Make sure to include all pertinent information, such as time and location.

Decorations

Setting the theme is one of the most important parts of any party. Making sure you have plenty of decorations for the entire party area is just as important as a themed invitation or delicious food. It isn’t a real party if there isn’t any décor, after all!

Travel Tips for Winter

Hitting the road for a winter vacation somewhere warm can be a satisfying adventure, but the roads could have other plans. Winter roads are often the cause of skidding, accidents, and breakdowns. Fortunately, you can avoid many of the road hazards that winter weather brings. Here are a few helpful travel tips for winter provided by us here at Plaza Lincoln.

  • Slow Down – Driving over the speed limit on roads known for being slick is incredibly dangerous and could lead to loss of control or an accident. Make sure to leave plenty of space, and avoid using cruise control. Hitting the brakes can cause a loss of control, so while cruise control is great for dry roads, do your best to come to a slow stop during winter weather.
  • Emergency Kit – You never know when disaster will strike, which is why an emergency kit is always handy. Keeping a box of medical supplies, like bandages, food, water, and extra clothes can go a long way when waiting for help to arrive. While roadside assistance is just a phone call away, it could take hours for help to arrive depending on the weather.
  • Four-Wheel Drive – Modern four-wheel drive systems are designed to get the vehicle moving. While you may be able to gain traction and speed quickly, keep in mind that you have to come to a stop eventually.
