It's all in the little details...

Spring is on the horizon which means it will be summer before you know it! We can’t wait for the warmer weather and longer days; it’s got us thinking about the Great British tradition of summer parties…

 

If you’re anything like us we get invitations to countless summer parties. Sadly, we can’t go to them all. If you want to make sure that guests choose to attend your summer party over all the other invites, it’s essential to make sure your invitation grabs their attention from the moment they first see it. And if you make sure this year’s summer celebration is one to remember, you can count on those same guests being back year after year.

 

So, how do you take your summer party to the next level? Here are a few suggestions from our Head of Creativity, Gemma Banks.

 

OVERSIZED PROPS

What better to add a splash of colour & fun to an event than oversized props from the ‘Curious Collection’ by Vowed & Amazed. How about a vintage Waltzer car & vintage painted signs on the lawn at an outdoor event or a huge Vegas light sign behind your bar…

 

 

COLOUR POP CONTEMPORARY FURNITURE

When the sun is shining what looks better than bright, contemporary occasional furniture for guests to relax on. The gang at Velvet Living have an incredible selection of pieces that you can mix and match to suit your event requirements.

 

 

ICE CREAM BAR

Everyone loves ice cream, and an Ice Cream Bar is the perfect pud for your guests on a summers day. Troughs of soft scoop ice creams, towering jars of wafer cones, zingy flavoured ice-pops and jars bottles laden with sprinkles and sauce.

 

 

COCKTAIL SLUSHIES

We all remember the bright blue slushies we would drinks as kids, that would dye our tongue for days. Here at Create we take the slushie to a new level by turning them into incredible summer cocktails.
 

 

OUTDOOR CINEMA

Found a venue with a wonderful outside space? How about hosting an outdoor cinema event for your guests? Think waiting staff serving delicious luxury hotdogs & quirky cinema snacks from usherette trays, deck chairs to recline on and of course a classic summer move on the reel.

 

 

LIVE GRAFFITI ART

Why not step away from the norm at your Summer event and entertain your guests with live art. Graffiti Life offer all manner of art & graffiti based options depending upon the event…bespoke wall murals, illustrations, live art & even graffiti team building.
