Summer in London is best time of the year to have fun outdoors. The warm weather gives you great set up to have outdoor parties and barbecues at summer party venues in London.

Though, preparing huge amount of food may seem daunting, you can follow these tips to plan a refreshing summer party.

Colourful Vegetable Platter

A summer outdoor party in London is incomplete without a healthy and vibrant vegetable tray. Fresh vegetables like broccoli, green and red bell peppers, celery, carrots, cauliflowers, and potatoes are standard fare during the summer season. Arrange some yummy dipping choices to accompany these vegetables. Add some refreshing veggies like cucumbers, radishes, and sugar snap peas too. Use these veggies on grilled kebabs for planning a stylish BBQ party in London.

Revitalizing Fruit Bowl

A chilled fruit bowl is a perfect addition to your summer party food. It not only refreshes you on a hot sunny day, but is a healthy option too. Cut-up few summer fruits, such as grapes, watermelon, strawberries, and honeydew melon. Just before your guests start coming in, chill the glass-serving bowl in the freezer and then place these finely cut fruits in the bowl. You can even use ice cubes to keep the bowl chilled.

Lip-Smacking Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad is a quick and easy food item to prepare. Serve it in a chilled dish to add an extra flavour to your outdoor party fare. If you have enough time to prepare, try two or three different types of cold pasta salad for your party. Add cold chicken, creamy sauce, spiral pasta noodles, peppers, olives, and spices in your list of ingredients to make a traditional pasta recipe.

Scrummy Appetisers

Fill up the party platters with mouth-watering summer appetisers. Prepare some delectable snacks with everyday ingredients and use fresh fruits and leafy vegetables for cold cocktail salads. Arranging potato chips and crackers combined with dips like mayo and salsa will be a good idea. You can also choose from a variety of pita pockets, nuggets and canapés for the menu. Set these out in trays in manageable amounts with fresh food from refrigerator.

Grilled Meats and Kebabs

London summers entice everyone towards hot dogs, grilled hamburgers, and steaks. Give a twist to these regulars by including grilled kebabs prepared from veggies, chicken, shrimp, fruits and steak. Make sure you prepare ingredients well before the time and let the guests create their own kebabs. Place bowls with some barbecue, teriyaki, and honey mustard sauces to spread over grilling kebabs.

Light Sodas and Chilled Mocktails

No summer bash in London is complete without ice cold drinks. Arrange for stocks of beverages that suit your guests’ preferences. Beer and soda are all time favourites, but do stock plenty of water for hydration too. Select some classic recipes of frozen drinks like daiquiris and margaritas. You can also arrange for some mocktails and fruit juices to keep your guests refreshed. Blend some yogurt, milk, fruits, ice, and fruit juices to make fresh smoothies for kids. Large pitchers of lemonade and iced tea are a must too.

Sweet and Sinful Indulgences

You will find a variety of fresh seasonal fruits during London summers. Let these fruits take centre stage in your party desserts. Add a bit of vanilla and chocolates to prime fruits like strawberries, cherries, raspberries, and blueberries. Prepare some tasty pies, cupcakes, and tarts to impress your guests. Dollops of vanilla ice cream will give you a fabulous summer treat too.
