Summer is well on its way, and we’re looking forward to a long season of summer celebrations. If you’re planning an event to mark the start of the Great British summer get in touch with our team today, we’ve got a host of picture perfect venues up our sleeves! In fact we’d go so far as to say we know all about what makes a great summer event, here are our five essentials for maximum summertime satisfaction.
The Great British summer doesn’t last long, so outside space is our number one priority when it comes to planning summer celebrations. Make the most of the warmer months and enjoy al fresco drinks receptions and parties within the exclusive grounds of the Artillery Garden at The HAC, The Pavilion at the Tower of London or the private terrace of Old Billingsgate.
Nothing says summer like the unmistakable scent of a barbecue. Strong, honest flavours and plenty of mouth-watering meat make barbecues perfect for entertaining, enabling guests to enjoy outside space as they dine in a relaxed, informal setting. Create Food & Party Design has been responsible for providing some of the finest grilled cuisine we’ve ever laid eyes upon.
So a funfair isn’t exactly essential to all summer parties, but in terms of extraordinary entertainment it can’t be beaten. City venue The Artillery Garden at The HAC comes complete with a funfair for summer events, with dodgems and a carousel and a host of stalls where you can unleash your competitive streak. Childish excitement guaranteed.
Designed to allow guests to mingle as they enjoy a selection of different catering options, food stalls are ideal for summer events. Al fresco parties and receptions are perfectly suited to such stalls, which offer the added benefit of enabling guests to spend more time in a venue’s outside space without the need to move inside for seated catering.
No summer party is complete without a selection of thirst quenchers which make the most of stunning seasonal produce. From cocktails and Pimm’s to bubbles and expertly mixed fruity concoctions the importance of summery drinks simply cannot be underestimated. And they all taste much better as soon as the sun puts in an appearance. We’ll have a Pimm’s, if you’re offering.
