This Monday we are gearing up to witness one of nature’s most spectacular events, a total eclipse! While you may not be in the “path to totality”, you can still catch a partial eclipse (find the time you can view it, here), and that is something to celebrate! So I’ve rounded up my favorite products and tips to create the ultimate eclipse viewing party, below….
What would a solar eclipse viewing party be without being able to view the main attraction? NASA has you covered with their official eclipse glasses (or this homemade version). After reading about people suffering from partial blindness due to an eclipse (solar retinopathy) I am not taking any chances and recommend you don’t either!
2. Galaxy Lemonade
Nothing says summer like a tall glass of cold lemonade! We are jazzing up the traditional bbq staple by making this recipe for color changing lemonade slushies. Twenty-one or over? Add some vodka to make a fun boozie slushie for by the pool! Don’t feel like making your own cocktails? Grab this list of 9 on theme wines and sit back and enjoy! (photo: @theflavorbender)
3. Finger Foods
If you don’t have a picture to post on Instagram, did the eclipse really even happen? While it is not recommended to point your phone at the eclipse (you can burn out the camera!) you can always set up a fun photo booth for your guests to enjoy! (photo: @stylemepretty)
5. What to wear?!
I am snagging these adorable Soludos slides, on theme, on sale and super comfortable? I am in!
And there you have it, a super simple and easy way to enjoy one of the coolest natural events!
