Easy Summer Birthday Party Food and Drink Ideas

Since I had so much to share for my daughter’s birthday party I broke the posts into: Summer Birthday Party Sneak Peek, Summer Birthday Party Decorations, and today’s post Summer Birthday Party Food and Drink. Let’s get to it!

Food

We had a hot dog bar complete with all the toppings, sauces, and recipe suggestions.  You can use a crock pot to keep the hot dog warm throughout the party. Here are the Hot Dog Recipes I came up with:

  • LA Mexican- Jalapenos and bacon
  • Texas- BBQ, cheddar, onions
  • New York- mustard and sauerkraut
  • Coney Island- chili, mustard, onion
  • Southern- ketchup, mustard, onions, pickles, chili
  • Chicago- mustard, relish, tomatoes, onions, pickles, peppers, celery salt
  • Hawaiian- ham, pineapple, onion, mayo
  • Southwest- Corn, olives, cheese, onions, ranch
  • Mia- EVERYTHING!

For sides I served individual cups of potato salad, fruit skewers, party mix, chips, pretzels, jello with whipped cream, and cookies.

Drinks

I used a dresser to display the drinks with jugs I bought at Target.  I also kept the extra hot dog buns and chips in the drawers for easy access.  Next, I simply made lemonade with sliced lemons, and strawberry lemonade with sliced strawberries.  I also have a jug of ice water on hand and a bottle of citrus vodka if the adults wanted to add a little kick to their drinks!

Decorate Your Own Cupcake

This station was a hit because it doubled as an activity for the kids.  It also made it cheap and easy to get plain non decorated cupcakes.  The topping I put out were chocolate chips, mini M&M’s, marshmallows, mini Oreos, gum drops, and chocolate balls.  I also had caramel, chocolate, raspberry sauces and whipped cream.
