Summer has arrived and with it comes cravings for refreshing drinks, sunsets on patios, and poolside hangouts. Apartment communities typically have a slew of amenities that embrace the season by offering ways to cool off and chill out. In order to utilize these community perks and welcome the season, why not host a summer soiree?

Here are a few fun ideas for ringing in the season of sun and fun:

Scream for Ice Cream

An ice cream social never fails in the summer months, as scoops of the good stuff offer sweet goodness and relief from the heat. When purchasing your pints, opt for a locally-owned creamery so residents can get a taste of the area and show support for local businesses. Be sure to leave a small brochure or sign displaying the business and their social media handles. Your residents may end up showing love for them on Instagram or Facebook! And, be sure to always pick up vegan pints and gluten-free toppings for those who have dietary restrictions.

Dive into a Pool Party

As a well-known summer classic, a pool party is a must for the season. It offers a great way to show off your fancy swimming spot as well as a chance to get to know your residents. For the ultimate poolside fiesta, be sure to plan the day well. Start out in the afternoon with barbecue, games, and time in the pool. Then, once the sun sets, roll out a projector and a screen for a movie by the pool! Everyone will be tuckered out from the daytime activities and find comfort in a floatie and the showing of a cinematic classic.

Pitch Some Tents!


For communities with nature lovers, nothing is better than a night of smores and stories by the fire. If you have an open courtyard or a flat lawn area, why not host a camping-themed party? Simply supply smores materials, barbecue supplies, and outdoor games, and residents can BYOT (bring their own tent). While many won’t stay the night, the nostalgic smell of the campfire alongside the camaraderie of friends will offer plenty of fun.
