There is nothing like sunshine and the overall energy of summer to draw people together, and what better way to connect with the ladies in your life than to host a party? Here at Peach, we work year-round hosting fashion trunk shows and women’s empowerment events, and over the years, we’ve learned exactly what it takes to make these events great. Now, we’re revealing our 5 key tips to hosting a great summer party, get-together or trunk show event, so you can create the most talked-about party of the season too!
1. Plan a fun get-together
We’re all busy, so it’s a good idea to give people a reason to gather and set aside the time in their schedule. Maybe it’s a ladies night centered around having a simple themed dinner together, or perhaps a sip and paint event to channel your creative side. It can also be as easy as stopping to enjoy coffee with friends while the kids are in school. When our Peach stylists partner with individuals interested in hosting a trunk show, they use their expertise to create a fun and easy shopping and styling experience. Since our products are versatile enough for gym, work and play, we’ve found that no matter who attends, everyone has something to look forward to, and there’s nothing like shopping with your girlfriends!
2. Add your own personal touch
When you look back on an event, often it’s the smallest details that end up being the most memorable. Don’t overthink it though, putting your personal touch on an event can be as easy as serving guests a fun seasonal cocktail or few of your favorite treats. We’re currently loving this peachy summer recipe: Peach Rosé Sangria .
3. Find the perfect summer party playlist
Music has the power to transform the simplest summer party into the most memorable. It sets the tone, uplifts the mood, and even creates a source of common ground among guests meeting for the first time. But if you’re not a natural DJ or don’t have the time to create a playlist, Spotify is a great option that has endless pre-made lists perfect for every occasion. At Peach, we are currently loving this Summer Hits playlist on Spotify.
4. Incorporate some new faces
We all have one group of friends that we’re closest with, but we’ve found that some of the most surprisingly fun parties occur when our hosts venture out to invite new faces. It’s a way to bring cool women together and build new relationships. So don’t be afraid to invite women from your different friend groups together (think: fellow sports team moms or the regulars at your local cycle studio). Also, choosing to do something like hosting a trunk show too, can be the perfect conversation starter to build new relationships.
5. Add value, not dollar signs
A great summer party doesn’t need to break the bank. Keep it simple and find ways to leave an impact without added cost for yourself. Maybe its tying the event to a charity (think: clothing donations or canned goods), or just breaking out those fancy margarita glasses you only use for special occasions. For our events, the trunk show comes at no cost to the host, and there are tons of perks to be gained. Hosts can earn 40% off their favorite Peach products and up to $250 in Peach credit as their guests make their own fashion purchases— plus, every party is a way of supporting female entrepreneurship. Sounds pretty good, right?
