Every single year it happens! Summer approaches and I hear Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff’s famous tune from 1991 in my head. I’m showing my age now!
Summer in the world of events is for me the most exciting season. It’s the time of year that we get to be playful, happy and creative even when it comes to the most punctilious of corporate company events.
This year the task of choosing a summer theme fell upon my team and we sat and thought of quirky ideas that would make us stand out from the rest of the crowd. Then it hit me, sometimes we try so hard to be out there that we miss the point. Sometimes simplicity works and less is more.
An ‘English Country Garden’, so simple yet just perfect. Gibson Hall is a venue in the City of London with outside space, which makes us stand out from the crowd so why not take advantage of what we have by embellishing the beauty of our very own oasis and escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Think shabby chic, Victorian cottage, bunting, flowers and the sun glistening down on your skin while sipping on your Hendrick’s gin with a sparkling elderflower and cucumber cocktail and I bet you will find it hard not to smile. That is precisely the effect that hosting your summer party at Gibson Hall will have on you.
Our garden will be laid out with natural wooden benches and a BBQ station made of whisky barrels with lanterns and butterflies all supplied to us by our amazing sister company The Event Hire Company.
For good measure why not add garden lawn games to the mix. Think of how jolly it will be playing giant Jenga with your team or how about booking a harpist or singer to entertain your clients. The list of ways to create the perfect event for you is endless.
Please keep in mind summer party enquiries have increased by 33% this year against last year as event managers are realising that they must book early to avoid missing out on key dates so enquire today, do not miss out.
Let the fun commence at Gibson Hall.
