Four ideas to make your summer party the event of the season

Summer is approaching fast, which means your deadline for finding ideal London party venues (and planning the entire event) for your annual company summer party is getting ever-closer.

It’s hard enough finding the perfect venue, without considering what your guests will eat and do on the day. So to help you here are four summer party ideas.

1) Summer Cocktail Party

One idea that never loses popularity is a summer cocktail party – and all the better if you can source a venue with outdoor space.

Everything tastes more delicious when enjoyed under an open sky. And your outdoor venue can help inspire your cocktail theme too. Don’t think you need to just stick to the tried and tested summer classics, either, why not ask your venue if they can help you devise a bespoke cocktail menu that perfectly fits an outdoor soiree?

2) Grown up Party Games

Your party guests may be grown up professionals, but that doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy playing games.

Some party venues with outdoor areas will have a selection of giant games – like Jenga – that make perfect party entertainment ideas. So before you commit to a party venue, check what games they can supply.

3) Foodies BBQ

Again, if your chosen venue has outdoor entertainment spaces, ask if they can provide a BBQ party.

Forget boring food, any London party venue worth considering will be able to cater a delicious menu of BBQ food any foodie would find irresistible. All you need to do is decide on your menu turn up and enjoy the feast!

4) Urban Barn Dance

The last thing you may expect to discover when arriving at a London party venue is a hoe down. But that might be just the reason to plan one!

If you’re looking for a summer party ideas with a difference, why not opt for an urban barn dance? As crazy as it sounds, it’s been running as an idea in the US for several years, and city venues with an outdoor space would make the perfect setting for a UK version.

Work with your chosen venue when planning your summer party to decide on your food and drink menu, then go wild with your décor ideas. And make it an event to remember!
