Corporate Summer Event Ideas for 2020
With the cold, wet weather outside it feels like Summer is a long way away, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your company Summer party. Here are some of our favourite event ideas to spice up your Summer company events in 2020.
A family Summer favourite! Bring your picnic to life with wooden tables and benches, checkered table clothes and big garden umbrellas, or you can really get into the picnic spirit with colourful picnic blankets and cushions for your guests to sit on. You can’t go to a picnic without a picnic basket. Provide your guests with sharing picnic baskets filled with picnic essentials, such as sandwiches, fruit, cheese, salads and crisps. And make sure to have a good mix of picnic games and activities on offer for your guests to enjoy their fun in the sun.
Treat your guests to a cinema experience like no other. Enjoy a classic film under the sky, lounging on bean bags or deck chairs. Bring in food and drink stalls with cinema essentials, such as popcorn and candy floss, for a real Summer film festival vibe. Host the screening at the grounds of a stately home, in a cave or a rooftop for a unique setting.
Throw a party at the beach or bring the beach to your party with a fun beach party theme – think sand, deck chairs, colourful bunting and inflatable balls. Food stalls serving everyone’s favourite seaside snacks, such us chip butties, hot dogs, burgers and ice cream, will bring a taste of the beach to your event. Beach inspired games, such as volleyball, tug of war and fun fair rides, will provide plenty of excitement for everyone.
Take the beach theme a step further and transport your guests to a tropical location with fresh fruit, cocktails with umbrellas and hula music. Beach huts, foliage, big tropical flowers and all things tiki will transform your event into a Hawaiian island. Hula dancers, fire shows, Luau party games and traditional Luau food will emmarce your guests in the Hawaiian culture. Your guests could also have a lot of fun dressing up… think loud, printed shirts, floral headbands and necklaces.
Break away from the mould with a boutique outdoor festival. With your very own festival tent and decor, live music, walkabout entertainment, interactive games and delicious drinks and food stations, you could have your very own mini Glastenbury! Add glamping tents/pods for a luxury camping experience.
Ibiza – Cafe del Mar Party
Inspired by the iconic Cafe del Mar with its chill out music under the sunset, this party will really get your guests into the Summer spirit. Recreate the Cafe del Mar with white chill out furniture and twinkly lights. Use LED decor/furniture to transform your event into an Ibiza night club as the night draws in. You will also need some fun and extravagant entertainment.. think dancers, show girls, fire shows and of course an A list DJ. With cocktails flowing and BBQ on the menu, your guests will feel like they are in Ibiza.
Circus Fun Day
Everyone loves a coconut shy, a big top and jugglers! Bring the magic, anticipation and excitement of the circus to your event and get everyone involved in the action with hands-on activities, challenges and entertainers, from acrobats, stilt walkers, fire breathers and magicians to circus workshops and fun fair stalls. Bright colours, circus ring, big top and large props will set the scene for your event. And it wouldn’t be a trip to the Circus without delicious food carts, including flavoured popcorn, candy floss and pic n mix station.
What screams Summer more than Summer Olympics? Bring a little competitive spirit into your Summer company event, while getting everyone moving and interacting. Think egg and spoon race, football relay, laser clay shooting, archery and inflatable obstacle courses. Keep your guests well fueled with delicious BBQ, craft beer and other Summer menu staples.
