What’s a Pop Up Party
I can’t believe it has taken me so long to post this fun summer pop up party. Summer just flies by so quickly here in Connecticut that I’ve been trying to make the most of it.

For those of you who have never heard the term of a pop up party, it basically means throwing a party in a random location, often a public place. In many ways it can be a glorified picnic. This party was held in a local park on the river. The menu consisted of all items served cold or room temperature that was made in advance which makes for easy hosting. I love the idea of a party in an unexpected location and being able to enjoy different views and spots your local community has to offer. Here is how we made this pop up party to celebrate a dear friend’s 30th birthday a casual yet special celebration.

When choosing a location there are many factors to consider and some depends how large of a group you have. Larger parties will require more space so find a park with ample room that isn’t too busy. It’s good to scope out your location before the party on a typical day that you plan hosting. For example, if you’re hosting your party on a Saturday go there on a typical Saturday for an hour before and for the duration you plan on being there. You don’t want to go on a Wednesday, see it’s empty and quiet only to go on a Saturday and find its packed and you can’t find a spot. I have made this mistake
