Summer party theme ideas
Do you want to make this year’s summer party one your guests will remember for years to come? Then you need to go big with the theming. It doesn’t need to cost the earth, but it’s definitely worth spending some time on getting it right. If you’re struggling for inspiration, kick start your creative juices by reading through our ideas and see if any of them might work for your event…
English garden party
Think Pimms, croquet, cucumber sandwiches and strawberries and cream. A quintessentially English affair that oozes class will make a lasting impression on all of your guests. Stipulate ‘garden party attire’ on the invitations (summer frocks and summer suits) to help maintain an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication. Lawn games, a string quartet and lashings of Champagne will also go a long way to creating the perfect soiree.
We challenge any party goer to arrive at a luau and not to smile the second they arrive. Nothing puts people in a better mood than palm trees, ukuleles, gaudy shirts and garlands of flowers – a welcome tropical cocktail wouldn’t hurt either. To create a true party atmosphere treat your guests to a hog roast and serving staff dressed to impress.
If your party falls in Wimbledon fortnight you could embrace the wave and throw a sports-themed party. Invite guests to dress up as their favourite sporting hero and let their imaginations do the rest. Make sure you set your party up with lots of outdoor games including table tennis and boules.
Furnish your outdoor space with a coconut shy, hall of mirrors, candy floss machine, even donkey rides! The magic of a traditional fairground will enchant any guests, particularly if it’s a family day as there will be lots to entertain the children. Food stations serving barbecued burgers and posh hot dogs will add to the authenticity of your event and don’t forget to hire some magicians and jugglers to provide the fun.
If you want to go glam for your summer bash this year, then there’s no better way to do it than by holding a Great Gatsby party. Decadence is the name of the game so make sure your decorations, food and dress code reflect the extravagance and glitz of the 1920s. A live jazz band is a great way to get the party vibe going and a troop of dancers will inject your party with a vibrant energy.
There’s nothing that says summer more than a sizzling burger on a barbecue. Up-turned barrels for tables and hay bales for seats, gingham table cloths, bucking broncos, line-dancing… there are loads of different ways you can make your summer rodeo great fun for your guests.
