Exciting ideas for a themed summer party

If you’ve decided to hold your event in summer, there’s never a better time to start planning. Finding inspiration for your party can be tricky, especially if it happens to be cold and snowing outside! A summer party is ideal for Bar/Batmitzvah’s, birthdays and graduations. This versatile theme can be made up of colourful decor, alfresco dining and a DJ playing classic summer tunes. 

To set the scene for your summer party, the most important element is your venue. Choosing a venue that has outside space is necessary to make the most of the (hopefully) nice weather and create a fun atmosphere for your guests to mingle. Canapes and cocktails with cute umbrellas can be served before the main party starts – along with fun Hawaiian necklaces! 

It wouldn’t be a summer party without a BBQ! For a relaxed set-up, you can hire an LED bar, with glasses of Pimms and Pina Colada cocktails. Treat your guests to a selection of burgers, hot dogs and kebabs, followed by ice cream and sweet stations. Did you know we now offer Kosher Candyland?

In between food and drink courses, your guests can go outside for some fresh air and enjoy lawn games. There’s plenty to choose from – old fashioned croquet, mini golf and even fun fair style arcade games. If your friends and family are more likely to enjoy watching entertainment, why not have a hula hooper or juggler instead? Definitely a hit with the kids!

Creating the summer vibe is down to the little details, as much as the big ones. Make sure you incorporate summer into every part of your event, especially where your guests will be spending the most time – at their tables! Name them after popular holiday destinations, bright colours or anything else that reminds you of summer.
