The only thing better than eating s’mores is throwing a whole party dedicated to them! If you want to throw the best s’mores party ever, you’re going to need a few things. Obviously, you’ll need marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers, but I’m talking about the things that take your party from backyard BBQ to a full-scale bash!

1. A smores bar is a must!
Anyone can have a smores party that just includes your basic ingredients. Why not kick your party up a level by offering a smores bar? You’ll of course need chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows, but kick things up by offering guests white chocolate, Nutella, shredded coconut, and whipped cream!
2. Don’t forget about games
After eating plenty of s’mores, everyone will have tons of energy to burn off! Outdoor games are a must have during a smores party. Twister, life-sized Jenga, scavenger hunts and even glow in the dark games are bound to be exciting.
3. Provide your guests sparklers
With a s’mores party comes a fire. How else are you going to melt those mallows, after all? Sparklers are a fun way to use the fire for something other than making s’mores. You can find a wide variety of sparklers, including those in the shape of a heart and ones that burn different colors.
4. Outdoor movie!
You don’t have to be indoors or at a cinema to watch a movie. Before the end of your smores party, sit around the fire with blankets and enjoy a movie! You can find plenty of tutorials online for creating an easy and inexpensive outdoor movie screen. I like this tutorial because it gives you a few different options.
5. Lanterns to light the way!
"The winter is passed, the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come." Song of Solomon 2:11-12 So hard to imagine the rains are actually coming back this week after all the glorious sunshine & warmth we've been having here in southern CA ?☀ But these blossoms on our peach tree sing of Spring ?

Lanterns are a subtle way to provide some light for your smores party. You can create lanterns using mason jars and flame-less candles. You can also use the jars and add glow in the dark bracelets and even glow in the dark paint to make the lanterns super cool! If you’re not feeling crafty, of course you can also just buy some camping lanterns. The nice thing about those, they’re reusable. That way, if you decide to go camping (or if the power ever goes out), you’ll have light!
