This Summers Best Party Trends: PART ONE

We’re dreaming of hot summer days and warm nights, sipping on a cocktail or two while watching the sun go down! And it’s got us thinking about summer parties and some of the summer party trends that we love.

Over the coming days, we will be highlighting some of our favourite party trends:

BBQ and games:

A classic but a goody. Who doesn’t love a BBQ in Summer, and as we all know, we don’t always have an abundance of hot English summer days so we like to make the most of having a BBQ whenever we can! Whether its traditional English food, American grub or a Pan-Asian twist, you can’t beat that BBQ grilled taste. Adding in some games to keep your guests entertained is always an icebreaker and makes for some hilarious photos and memories. Our team at Rooms on Regents Park specialise in creating delicious BBQs, and with a fantastic lawn overlooking Regents Park, what better way to celebrate Summer in London.


Traditional English picnic

Remember your childhood picnics; huddled up on blankets, eating sandwiches and scotch eggs, drinking a Capri sun and watching the world go by. For a relaxed, informal summer party why not recreate this; relaxing on blankets on the lawn, swapping your Capri sun for some bubbles and strawberries and some sumptuous picnic favourites. Get nostalgic, relax and soak up the atmosphere.


Beach theme

With just a few key elements, you can easily create a beach themed summer party, or you can go the whole hog and add everything in. Grab some deck chairs and a trusty ice cream cart, maybe one of those seaside cardboard cut out boards for some silly photos and decorate the bar into a tiki hut, and you’re instantly transported to the beach! Well, minus the sand and sea!……………actually I’m sure you could get sand for your party too! You could even have some of the food served in a ‘bucket and spade’ , drinks with umbrellas or have some inflatable palm trees.
