Summer Party Entertainment Ideas
Six summer garden party entertainment ideas that are destined to impress your guests!
The Inner Temple is home to the second largest privately owned green space for hire in the City of London. Our award-winning 3-acre garden offers the perfect backdrop to your summer garden party. Available to hire throughout the summer months, our gardens present a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
With summer garden party season within touching distance, now is the time to elevate your event plans and ensure your garden party is a success by incorporating some engaging entertainment. Here are six summer garden party entertainment ideas to consider:
Introduce a theme
A quintessential village fête, circus funfair, festival fun, Moroccan charm or Alice in wonderland are just a few theme ideas to help guide your creativity! Styling the scene will add to the ambience of the day, whether you choose to go all-out or keep it simple, themed event decor is sure to dazzle guests and will ensure your summer party is bursting with character.
Get your guests in the party mood from the moment they arrive with a live music performance. Nothing sets the tone quite like live music and there’s an abundance of choice. Choose an act to complement the theme, from a string quartet, acoustic guitarist, jazz or roaming band, steel drum band or simply select an awesome DJ and watch your guests dance and mingle! The team at Blank Canvas Entertainment offer a bespoke service to help find the right act for you. Music helps to create a festive and celebratory atmosphere and keeps energy levels high throughout the event. There truly is nothing better than the warmth of a summer day and the sound of live instruments in the open air.
Encourage some friendly competition with a selection of giant lawn games. At The Inner Temple, our summer party packages include three garden games to entertain your guests, and more can be provided on request. Choose from Connect 4, Chess, Draughts, Jenga and many more. Games are the perfect addition to any garden party and are great for breaking the ice and getting your party having fun together. Give your guests the chance to relive their childhood memories!
Everyone loves a keepsake and a photobooth offers your guests just that. Capture lasting memories with a photobooth, in keeping with the theme or as a lovely addition to any summer party. Set up a backdrop and provide props such as hats, sunglasses, and boas. Consider hiring a professional photographer to take the photos or set up a digital photo booth where guests can share the photos via email or with a printer so guests can take their photos home on the spot.
Walkabout acts are a fantastic way to bring a unique and interactive element to a summer garden party. From traditional options such as close-up magicians, caricaturists and jugglers to something a little quirkier such as hedge people and famous lookalikes, there are walkabout acts for any taste. Unlike traditional stage performers, walkabout acts roam around the event, creating a more intimate experience for guests. Take it to the next level and surprise your guests by hiring a flash mob!
Close a memorable evening with a bang! Arrange an impressive firework display in our gardens, situated along the banks of London’s River Thames. Fireworks add a touch of magic to any event that guests will remember fondly for years to come, and a garden summer party is no exception. Delight your guests and bring everyone together as they stand in awe.
