HOW TO KEEP COOL WITH PARTY IDEAS
By Patty Sachs
Try these festive and frosty
party ideas to keep cool all summer:
wear a party hat!...That is all!
wear an official party hangover ice bag.
501, NIKE, Tommy Hilfiger, Armani ..You'll at least look cool.
coffee breaks, take tea breaks...lengthy, frequent Long Island Iced Tea
breaks. Then you won't even notice how hot it is.
sing-along of such sub-zero songs as “Frosty, the Snowman,” “Let it Snow,”
and “I Only Have 'Ice' for You.”
tunes of Kool and the Gang, Ice T, and
crew of professional “confetti tossers” for the day. They will not only make
the place look festive...they will also create a nice, cool breeze.
Fill a tub
with ice cubes and break every hour to bob for cubes.
Muzak...play Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, Wynton Marsalis, Kenny G...or any
other cool jazz artists.
If you must
be outdoors... always, I repeat, always stay under a canapé.
yourself as a cucumber…you know how darn cool they are.
party pickup line..."What's an “ice” person like you doing in a place
like this?" Sorry, but it IS an ice breaker and you ARE guaranteed to
get the cold shoulder.
Frosty O’s ™ topped with Cool Whip™
ice sculpture in the shape of a chair...sit in it all day and at five
o'clock fill it with fruit punch and begin the after work party.
These ideas have been tested by a
random group of party experts and the consensus is that hot weather celebrating
is not only fun...but also it can be downright...chillin'.
On! And, Stay Cool!
