Heat, heat, heat. We just can’t get our fill of it in England; and despite the recent heatwave-to-beat-all-heatwaves, we all still yearn for more summer sun to come. So what corporate party ideas go with a swelteringly hot summer day? Too many! If your corporate party agenda is looking bleak and in need of a boost, then look no further because this month we are styling our blog on spicing up those corporate affairs. Summer party ideas for this year, next year or now! So whether you’re booking in advance or looking for a last minute knees-up, we’ve got something for everyone.
Corporate Party, Cocktail Party
Refreshing, cooling cocktails, expertly blended to give you a taste of summer. Not to mention the cheeky names of all the faves. These corporate parties always go down an absolute treat. Try a few of the fruity ones and a few of the classics and open your tastebuds up to a whole new world of wonders. This tops our list for a super smooth and super cooling summer party; and because the bartenders do all the mixing work for you, there’s no forward prep needed. Decor is optional; the only requirement is the guests!
Carnivals and Funfairs
Those summer funfairs always draw in the crowds, so why not draw your very own crowd and create a corporate carnival party. You can take a truly British approach with the old fashioned Coconut shy, Hook-a-duck and Tin Can Alley; or create a more tropical twist with your very own homage to the annual Rio de Janeiro carnival (or any carnival that takes your fancy). Exotic outfits at the ready!
Bring back those lazy summer days and take a walk down memory lane with an indoor-outdoor picnic. Pick a venue that suits and one where you can sit and relax both inside and out. You can supply the picnic blankets or guests can bring their own. Opt for some gingham decor and picnic style foods to recreate the picnics of your childhood; and if you’re looking for a family-friendly corporate party then this one is sure to be a winner with everyone.
The Swinging 60’s/70’s
Platform heels, flower power, swirly psychedelic patterns and The Beatles. The swinging sixties never really go out of fashion! Get into a nostalgic mood and party, hedonistic-style, with some of that summer-loving grooviness. By the end of the night your guests will all have flowers in their hair and be singing along to Yellow Submarine at the tops of their voices. Bring back the sixties, baby!
