Glass Cake Stands and More for a Summer Birthday

Summer birthdays are wonderful. The weather is so nice that you can also host them outside and people seem to have more time overall in the summer. It’s especially great for young kids when they are all out of school, it’s much easier for them to come over and enjoy the party! When preparing for a summer birthday, you want to have all the essentials and theme things the right way.

Glass cake stands are essential for the birthday cake! They make a beautiful display and also keep the cake protected from any insects buzzing about or even little fingers from trying to sneak a bit of icing! Be careful with cake in the hot sun; it’s best to keep it safely inside until it’s time to blow out the candles.

You’ll also need drink dispensers to keep everyone hydrated. Make kid’s favorites like lemonade or Kool-Aid. A drink dispenser with some ice will keep your drinks cool and make it easy for everyone to get their share, even the little ones.

When buying party supplies, get colorful plates, napkins and flatware! Not only will the different colors be festive, but it may be easier for people to remember which plate and fork was theirs depending on which color they had.
