1. Serve A Perfect Alfresco Feast

London summers are actually the time where you can give the usual gluten a break. So, why not add a healthy twist to your outdoor event by serving a couple of yummy bites. Do you fancy some strawberries with honey vinaigrette? Or perhaps a creamy caramel fruit dip alongside taco dip with cream cheese? How about grilling brochette chicken under the balmy London sun...? Ah, Bliss!

Any summer party would be incomplete without serving some delicious quick-service Barbecue foods. In London, a majority of people love to get tanned under the sun and enjoy grilled food over the hot flame. You can take inspiration from this blog and decide the menu of the barbecue party planning.

2. Beat the Heat With Super-Refreshing Drinks

What’s a party without some booze to get into the groove? Besides, an alfresco event is just the perfect excuse for you to indulge in some easy summer cocktails and frozen drinks. When the sun is out, it is the time to be high like a kite, right? So, let us set the mood right by adding these much required high-spirited indulgences.

There is no end to the creativity that you can showcase with cocktails. However, there is something vintage-ish charming about sipping tropical cocktails while soaking in the sun. A menu with Banana Daiquiri, Passion Fruit Mojito, and Pomegranate Margaritas will surely quench the thirst of everyone, don’t you agree?

3.
Treat Your Summer Taste Buds with Frozen Desserts

Desserts complete a celebration!
Yeah, we know, that was Aww! So, if you wish to have a perfect celebration, serve your guests with some “melt-in-your-mouth” desserts! The sweet indulgences of summer season have a charm of their own, laced with the flavours of seasonal fruits and flowers. Make the most of what this summer 2015 has to offer and perhaps serve sweets with something chilled or frozen. You may also want to try out seasonal fruits topped with whipped cream, berry cakes, and choco-chip ice-cream pie. And do share with us some of your unique ideas of other lip-smacking desserts.

4. Play the Ultimate Summer Playlist

More important than any other party feature, is music that sets the ambiance of the event. And zero down upon the music by considering the mood of the summertime soiree that you are planning. Usually, countryside summer parties prefer loud trance music. However, you can also add a dash of love songs and jazz for some crooning, mooning and well, you know what! Here are some of the other top options provided by one of our DJ friends!

  • Start with a bit of Travolta and Olivia Newton-John duet in "Summer Nights"
  • Or maybe with the popular "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini, Bryan Hyland
  • Even in London, you can enjoy "Surfin’ U.S.A.," by The Beach Boys
  • Up next, Katy Perry’s "California Gurls," feat Snoop Dogg is ideal for pumping up the summer BBQ party’s mood
  • And you can have further help with the "Summer In The City," by The Lovin’ Spoonful
  • "Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days Of Summer," by Nat King Cole, would continue to keep everyone glued to the dance floor.
  • And then we have the "Summer Love," by the heartthrob, Justin Timberlake (yayy!!).
  • Speaking of Justin Timberlake, also consider including "The Boys Of Summer," by Don Henley in the soundtrack.
  • And of course, "Endless Summer Nights" by Richard Marx is simply perfect, especially if you plan on to party till late in London.
  • Lastly, the classic "Summer Of ’69," by Bryan Adams is a MUST to jam this summer.
5. Give your Decoration a Touch of Elegance

Decorating an outdoor space can be a little frustrating, especially when you are doing-it-yourself. The best way to decorate in summers is by getting in tune with the season. You can create that magical summer vibe with lots of trendy decorations like pale-coloured lanterns, paper floral garlands, and island-inspired centrepieces. A striking floral decor at the entrance would definitely set the stage right for a summertime BBQ party to go on as planned. Our suggestion here is that you consider using a lot of daisy lavender, freesia, Eden, Lily, germinis, and roses from a nearby shop. Make your own flower arrangement to decorate them at your venue.
