This Summers Best Party Trends: PART TWO

After a (let’s be honest) overcast and rather a gloomy weekend, we’re not letting this weather hinder our dreams of a Summer BBQ! Hot on the cocktail coat-tails of our Summer Party Trends PART ONE, here are more of our Summer party trends to help get you into the mood…


A classy affair: Champagne and Oysters on the lawn

For a more sophisticated affair, why not entertain your guests with Champagne and Oysters on the lawn. Whether it’s just for a small get together after work or to make a whole evening of it, you can’t go wrong with this classy summer party. Add in some relaxing music to set the atmosphere, or perhaps some croquet to really set the tone. This year, at the Royal Over-Seas League, this is exactly what they’re doing and it’s proving extremely popular! In the heart of London with views over Green Park, this is the perfect venue to see in those summer nights.

A trip around the world

Let the food and drink do the talking and inspire your senses, transporting you around the world, with themed food stations to really whet your appetite. From South America to Italy, to Asia and India, experience all the flavours from around the world. This is a great theme and a real talking point for your guests. Why not add in decorations on each station to really enhance the theme or even have the staff dress up in traditional cultural attire. At the British Library we can host up to 400 for a reception in the outdoor terrace and terrace restaurant; plenty of space to make this theme become a reality.

Bringing the outside in

Sometimes we just can’t rely on the English weather, and sometimes we just don’t want to. What’s great about all of the above themes is you can recreate them indoors. You could even create an entire lawn indoors. Your guests could arrive and walk into an entire room filled with ‘grass’, be handed a glass of Pimms and relax in a deck chair whilst sampling a selection of BBQ treats and listening to your favourite summer tunes. Take the stress away from watching the weather every day and bring your outdoor summer party indoors. Just pick your venue!

Imagine this covered in grass, with lit up trees along the columns…? Bring the outside in at Spitalfields Venue.
