Guest Post:Creating a Celebrity Summer for Your Family


 I am very pleased to introduce you all to my new bloggie friend Ariana! Arianna is a full-time mom and a fashion-lover, world traveler, animal lover, and family woman extraordinaire. She loves to cook and bake, travel to new places, share great fashion finds, and spend time doing crafts and projects at home with her kids. She’s got a crazy busy life, but she wouldn’t have it any other way!

Be sure to check out her blog Ariana Knows Best and follow along! 

Now I will hand it over to her for some amazing Celebrity Summer ideas!



Summer is always a time for fun, relaxing with friends and spending some quality time by the pool. With so much activity, there are times that all I wish for is a little quiet.

My girlfriends were comparing notes while watching our kids on the playground last week and all of us agreed it would be wonderful to take off on an exotic vacation. But with play dates and our other daily obligations, we realized that the only vacation we would have this summer was when Grandma takes the kids for the weekend!

Instead of going on trip to a different location, we decided to create our own fun in our backyards! Here are some great ideas for celebrity-inspired activities that you could do at home for a fun and budget friendly summer!


CELEBRITY SUMMER: WEEKEND IN THE HAMPTONS
Celebrities love this cozy hotspot! With an endless array of charity events and cocktail parties to fill up calendars, superstars like Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez have recently become homeowners in the area. Exclusive guest lists, private beaches, and the charm of a small town continue to draw more stars to the Hamptons every summer!



   
REALITY SUMMER: BED & BREAKFAST
Take a mini road trip and head to a bed and breakfast in your area! You'll feel like you're on vacation without the hassle of flight delays and squeezing your shampoo into TSA approved bottles! Many locations offer activities too, like golfing for the hubby or spa treatments for you. A weekend getaway is the perfect refresher for the crazy week ahead!





CELEBRITY SUMMER: PRIVATELY OWNED EXOTIC LOCALE
I have read about celebrities who own their islands, and I have to admit that I get a little jealous. For most of us (especially with small children), it’s a challenge to get away to a resort or renting a condo on the beach. But having the option to charter a private jet and owning your own island is a fantasy that stars like Johnny Depp, Tyler Perry, and Leonardo DiCaprio get to live out everyday!





REALITY SUMMER: LOCAL & SECRET LOCALE
Whether it’s a tropical island or a local spot down the road, fun in the sun can be had anywhere! Local beaches, lakes and even water parks are great ways to enjoy a sunny afternoon! Many places offer other activities from sailing classes, to snorkeling and miniature golf, so the whole family can enjoy the day wet or dry!



CELEBRITY SUMMER BIRTHDAY PARTY: ALL-OUT KIDS BIRTHDAY PARTY
What kid wouldn't want a party with professional acrobats and circus performers as the entertainment? Children's birthday parties have come a long way from ice cream, cake, and pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong recently spent $60,000 on a party for her 4-year-old daughter! If that’s their birthday party, I can’t imagine what a Sweet Sixteen would cost!




REALITY SUMMER BIRTHDAY PARTY: DIY AROUND THE WORLD BIRTHDAY PARTY
My mom did this for me as a kid and I loved it! Send out a postcard invitation for an "Around the World" themed party! Create stations with activities related to different cultures, such as a piñata or practicing with chopsticks. Serve foreign inspired cuisine such as chocolate croissants and tacos! With more than enough countries to choose from, the possibilities are endless!
