Corn Roast Party Ideas

Save

Celebrate summertime with friends and family members by hosting a corn roast party. This twist on the traditional outdoor barbecue focuses on the golden vegetable, which is cooked on the grill. Along with tasty food, the party theme -- including its unique invitation, decoration and activity possibilities -- offers a variety of features to keep guests entertained.

Invitations

  • Kick off the corn roast festivities right from the start with some corn-inspired invitations. Find cards that feature the golden vegetable and stick corn kernels in the envelope instead of confetti. For an even more creative invite, send a corn husk to the guest-to-be. Wrap the party information around the outside or write it right on the husk using a permanent marker. These invitations can be hand-delivered or left at the guest's doorstep as a surprise.

Food

  • This party is centered around corn, so brush up on your best corn roasting recipes before the big day. Herbs and spices add extra flair to the dish; experiment with different styles a few days before the party. Prepare other foods to serve, too, including chips, beans and maybe some barbecued meat. Provide plenty of refreshments, including soda, lemonade and beer.

Decorations

  • Get as corny as you wish when decorating for your corn roast. Use red-and-white-checkered linens to adorn the tables, giving the party a rustic outdoor feel. Instead of chairs, provide bails of hay that guests can relax on. Use the vegetable of honor as centerpieces. Arrange a few husks of corn sticking out of a vase. Find some with a lot of silk coming out of the top for added texture.

Activities

  • Host some corny contests for your guests. Hold a corn shucking contest; challenge guests to see who can rip off the husk, wash and bag the most corn in a given amount of time. A corn-eating contest is another activity centered around the vegetable. Water balloon and squirt gun fights offer a way to cool down during the hot summer party.
