Summer Party!

Summer evenings are the perfect time to get outside and have fun with friends. The notion of the long summer evenings ahead of us got me thinking about a perfect summer

Start if off right with a fabulous outdoor setting complete with lots of lounging space, lush greenery and of course, that extra spark provided by a firepit and lots of lanterns.


Next we need to set the tone with some party tracks to set the night off right. To get an expert opinion, I've asked one of my very favourite DJs here in Toronto - M-Rock. Here is his list of 10 Summer tracks...

1. Ain't No Fun - Snoop Dogg
2. After Party - Koffee Brown
3. Stevie Wonder - My Love is on Fire (Spinna remix)
4. Genius of Love - Tom Tom Club
5. Summertime, Summertime - Nocera
6. I'm In Love - Evelyn Champagne King
7. Conductin' Thangs - Maestro Fresh Wes
8. Summer Jam - Underdog Project
9. Ciara - Love Sex and Magic (M-Rock's Detroit Tabla Mix)
10. Kiss Me Thru The Phone (Instrumental) - Soulja Boy

If you're in Toronto on June 6th, be sure to check out M-Rock and Double AA at the Gladstone Hotel. We've been to a few of M-Rocks parties here and we always have an amazing time and end up talking about it for ages afterwards. Great vibe and jam packed with all the tunes you forgot you were in love with along the way.

Keep things moving with some fun party 'favors'. I love these jello shooters from Spring 09's Food & Drink magazine. These gorgeous, edible cocktails would score major style points, and are a fun, cool treat!{Photo:Food&Drink}

Get the recipe for these lovely Sangria Bites here. Clever Brilynn has a lovely blog about all things delicious and had found them in Food & Drink then made them step by step.{Photo: Food&Drink}

These Manhattan Drops have a fun, playful feeling - and add a fun punch of colour! Find Brilynn's recipe at her blog, Jumbo Empanadas.

Some snacks, some drinks and some great company and you're set for a great night!

Great post! Thanks for the music list too - I have some of these songs, but others, I'm going to check out. Love the orange lanterns! - I haven't come across too many, but it works really well in this setting. Hope you have a great weekend~
