Summer Party Essentials
As we can now enjoy the company of our friends and families in our homes and gardens again, and with more warm weather forecast this month, the summer party is officially back again! Making the most of the sunshine and ensuring that all guests are entertained is essential at any party.
Take a look at our guide to the essentials for any summer party, all of which are available with a One4all Gift Card.
Put Another Shrimp on the Barbie!
It wouldn’t be a summer party without a barbeque. Whether you’re hoping to cook up a storm with a meat feast or opting for veggie and vegan treats, cooking over hot coals is a summer essential. B&Q have a great selection of barbeques that are perfect for entertaining. Like the Zelfo Black Charcoal Barbeque which allows you to feed up to 12 people and can easily be moved around, allowing you to find the perfect spot in your garden.
Zelfo Black Charcoal Barbeque, £73 at B&Q.
Fun For All
A little competitive spirit at a party is a great way to keep guests entertained whilst enjoying the sunny weather. Whether you’re looking to sweat a little, or just want to enjoy the company of your friends, there’s a game for every occasion. Argos have lots of family fun activities, like the Chad Valley 3-in-1 Tennis, Badminton, and Volleyball set which is a fantastic way to bring all generations together to add a little sportsmanship to your party.
Chad Valley Tennis, Badminton and Volleyball Set, £20 at Argos.
Crack Open the Beer
Sunny weather is a great excuse to crack open a refreshing beer with loved ones. Whether you like to enjoy a classic beer or experiment with some more unusual flavours, it’s a great way to soak up the sun. The Craft Beer and Snack Selection from M&S is perfect for those looking to enjoy some more flavoursome beers, with a selection of different IPA’s, meaning there is a flavour for everyone. There is also a selection of crisps and snacks, so even the little ones can enjoy a little something to eat.
Craft Beer and Snacks Selection, £30 at M&S.
Keeping it Cool
Whilst summer may be the perfect time to enjoy a refreshing beverage, nobody likes to take a sip of a warm beer or juice! With the warm weather, it’s important to keep drinks as cool and crisp as possible. A beer bucket, like the one linked below from TK Maxx, is the perfect addition to any summer party, allowing you to fill it with ice and keep all your drinks cool.
Grey Beer Bucket, £12.99 at TK Maxx.
Add a Little Light!
A great summer party is likely to continue into the evening, meaning you can watch the sunset and enjoy a little relief from the sun. However, with the party continuing, it’s important that guests can still see one another! The Moroccan line lights from John Lewis are a great way to add a little light in the evening. Using solar power, they don’t require charging, and offer a soothing light that will keep the party going well into the night.
John Lewis & Partners Solar Powered Moroccan Line Lights Bronze, £18 at John Lewis.
