Top Tips for Planning the Perfect Summer Party

A late summer party is the perfect way to get together with friends and family and enjoy the last of the warm summer weather. People who are lucky enough to have large gardens can really get creative planning a memorable summer party and this is also a great way for work colleagues to get to know each other better. Here are a few things that you will want to consider to make sure that your summer party is memorable and that everyone has fun.


It is important to make sure that you have enough food for all of your guests as well as anyone else who might happen to turn up unannounced! Arranging a barbecue is an easy and fun way to cater for a large number of guests. Barbecue food has come a long way in recent years and instead of being limited to serving boring burgers and hotdogs you could opt for a range of alternatives such as barbecued fish and seafood, corn on the cob, ribs, kebabs and steaks.

People who have a flare for the unusual may also want to consider having a hog roast, although it is a good idea to check in advance whether your guests are vegetarian and have plenty of vegetarian alternatives such as pasta salad, jacket potatoes and stuffed bell peppers to hand.


Serving summer cocktails is the best way to get your guests into the party spirit. Hiring a cocktail barman will add a real touch of class to your summer party and will also leave you free to meet and mingle with your guests. Professional cocktail barmen are also great at entertaining and are sure to impress your guests with their special skills.


Make sure that you organise a few activities to make sure that your guests have fun and interact with each other. If you have a swimming pool then it is easy to arrange water games that people of all ages can take part in. Other fun party activities that are easy to organise include Twister, treasure hunts, quizzes and special film screenings. If your party goes on into the evening you could even arrange a fireworks display to make sure that your party really goes off with a bang.
