Summer Color Schemes and Themes for Your Catered Party


The warm days and nights of summer provide plenty of opportunities to hold a party for your friends, family, or coworkers. Here are 3 popular themes that are sure to be a hit with your guests.

Traditional Themes

There’s a lot to love about the classic American picnic staples: hot dogs and hamburgers. Guests can choose their toppings and enjoy familiar comfort foods that are easy to prepare and serve. Emphasize the summer theme with bright colors and bold patterns, or stick with a truly all-American theme and deck out your walls and tables with traditional red, white, and blue.


Summertime is ideal for the bright colors and bold flavors of Hispanic cuisine and decorations. Tacos, quesadillas, and fajitas give your guests plenty of choices and customizable meals. And, sides like beans, rice, and chips and salsa are popular with guests of all ages. Vibrant colors are key to decorating your fiesta: choose bold red, orange, blue, and green accessories for a bold look.

Pool Party

If you’re lucky enough to have a pool available for your party, water themes make a popular way to celebrate the summer. Blues and greens bring out the theme, while shrimp, fried fish, and other seafood are sure to get your guests in a tropical mood! For adult parties, complement your meal with beverages like piña coladas and margaritas.
