Led Bar Hire for your Summer Corporate Event
We are fast approaching summer, and as the warmer weather starts to appear, it can be a great time to start thinking about hosting an event for your clients or employees. As event specialists, who can offer everything from LED bar hire to bar accessories, we have pulled together some of our favourite ideas for the perfect summer party:
Nothing says summer like a BBQ, and it can be a great way to encourage guests to mingle. You could encourage a bit of networking by placing some garden games around such as giant snakes and ladders, or giant Jenga. Games are always a good way to get people talking!
For the actual BBQ itself, why not think outside the box and have a cook-off where teams compete to see who can produce the best burger? The best thing is that everyone can eat their entries! One thing to keep in mind with a BBQ is that the great British weather can often get in the way, so it is probably a good idea to hire a gazebo as well. You will also need some outdoor tables and chairs so that everyone can sit and eat comfortably - and at Bars2You, we offer a wide range of furniture and equipment to suit any event.
A great way to really bring all of your colleagues together for a fun event is to host a carnival-themed party. Not only is it guaranteed to be colourful and lively, but you could also get everyone involved by asking them to make costumes. Our LED bar hire services are perfect for this sort of event as they can light up in a variety of colours and you can also hire poseur tables from us as well, which you can cover in bright material or sequin tablecloths to really get that carnival feeling. To really bring the theme to life, grab some inflatable palm trees, colourful bunting and cocktails in pineapples.
If you want a theme that works both indoors and out, then why not pick a casino theme. You could go for Las Vegas style, a more elegant Monte Carlo style, Prohibition-style or even a James Bond night. For a James Bond or Monte Carlo theme, ask your guests to dress their best and serve them cocktails in cut glasses or Martinis that are shaken and not stirred. Alternatively, have a more casual casino night with a Las Vegas theme featuring one of our curved bar units, and serve mini burgers and buffalo wings with colourful cocktails. For a prohibition night, opt for 1920s-style furniture and hire some vintage-style dresses. Whatever casino theme you go for, you can ask our bar staff to help you create a themed cocktail as a welcome drink to get people mingling.
Vintage garden party
Go back to the 1920s by hiring some wicker garden furniture, getting a jazz band to play, and serving your cocktails in vintage mismatched tea-cups and saucers. Serve sandwiches and cakes on tiered stands like an afternoon tea, and pop some fairy lights about for when the sun goes down.
