Yes, I have organized a few. Mostly kids parties at local parks. These turned out great, thankfully the weather was fine. But they do require some organization and remember to bring everything necessary.
I don't go to parties of any kind much, but when I organise daytime get-togethers with my friends I like to do them in a local park...provided the weather is nice. I find that to be practical as I don't have to do a big clean-up at home before everyone arrives, and there's no mess when they all go home.
No and No.
I'm old fashioned, I like things inside, unless I'm craving some warm weather, with no hot sun, fly's and noise.It's o.k. then.
Not over keen. :( I know I'm not much fun, but outdoor parties are just not me.
I've been to a poorly organized party outdoor. There was not enough seating arrangement, too many flies, food was falling all over, kids were getting hurt, it was a disaster. i do think that with outdoor parties, one needs to have pre-planned a lot of things for the event to go smoothly. Indoor parties are just a bit more convenient. But I understand that there is a lot of pre- and post-cleaning involved.
ME, organising??? You've got to be kidding. No way! I have attended a couple of outdoor parties, many years ago. My parents enjoyed hosting NYE parties. (In 1962 we had the 1st swimming pool in our suburb.) Our eldest daughter started off having indoor birthday parties for her kids, then she started having them in their local park. It has never rained nor looked like it was going to rain! She even organised to have her 40th birthday by the Yarra on Anzac Day, (her real birth day) so my husband had to go there by 8am & hog a table. It was a lovely day, with her friends coming & going during the afternoon. She also celebrated with other friends the following evening, (we looked after the kids at her house,) & on the 1st day of celebrations she organised a breakfast, with some other friends! Amazing. it all worked out so well. So in the end of cause, it was a breakfast, then a lunch, then outdoor finger food & drinks in a park, under fairy lights, so people who were arriving, could find them in the park! Like, "Oh there they are, over there"
