Summer Party Tips


We know how important having the perfect occasion is, whether it’s for a birthday, a leaving celebration or an anniversary. Whatever it may be, if you’re planning it for over the summer months then here are some great ideas and tips to help you plan the perfect event.

Venue Ideas

Of course in the summer months you have the chance to take advantage of the sunnier days and warmer evenings. Therefore planning an outdoors event is much easier, if you’re in the city, hiring out a rooftop from a hotel or restaurant could make the perfect venue. If you can’t rely on the UK’s untrustworthy weather (understandable) then hiring a marquee could offer you the best of both worlds. Many hotels and historic houses offer the perfect venue with beautiful surrounding gardens.

Decoration ideas and themes

It can be difficult to think of party themes and ideas when trying to plan the show stopper event, not to worry we are here to help. There are a huge variety of themed parties to choose from, is there anything close to your heart? A hobby or an interest? You could hold a sports themed party, a fancy dress, a beauty party. If you aren’t choosing a themed party, a summer’s evening can be a great opportunity for some pretty decorations. From flowers, to fairy lights, deck chairs, another popular party attenders now are gin vans or trailers. You can hire these and they will set up at your party for the evening! A perfect idea instead of your guests buying drinks!

Food ideas

Now of course, your choice of food will hugely depend on the type of event you’re holding. That’s why it is important to consider how many guests you’re having, how to feed them all and the style of food you want. Here at ChilliPepper catering we have it all covered, from street food, to fine plate dining, hog roasts and even your traditional burgers, fish and chips and mac ’n’ cheese!
