Now we know that most of us have an office Christmas party. But how many of us have a summer party too? Or perhaps a day out at the races? Team-building corporate days and adventurous escapades? Why not make the most of the summer sun and opt for a summer party instead.
We have come up with a few ideas to suit a range of budgets. From DIY parties in the office where you can supply your own catering and disposables party supplies, to action packed days out.
5 Ideas for an Office Summer Party
- Host a BBQ – or head to the park or beach (BBQ responsibly in permitted areas, of course). You’ll need charcoal and firelighters to fire up the barbie, and unless you were a girl guide or a boy scout, don’t forget the matches!
- Head to the races – a popular venue for a summer social, you could opt to posh it up with a hospitality package, but for a more relaxed vibe, pack a deluxe picnic and take your own strawberries and champagne! It needn’t be a lot of hassle; pack paper cups, plates and disposable cutlery to save on the headache of washing up and carting it all home again.
- Have a High Wire adventure – places like Go Ape are no stranger to office groups heading for an adrenaline fuelled day out. Often situated in picturesque locations such as Delamere Forest, they are a great way to combine a team building activity and a chance to eat, drink and be merry.
- Create a DIY Cocktail Party – if you want to celebrate the summer without it costing the earth, why not have a fun and relaxed after work gathering and create-your-own cocktail? Check out our beverage machines which could be used long term. Buy in some delicious mixers and syrups, add to your spirit or soft drink of choice, and the conversation will soon be flowing…best add in some nibbles and snacks too. Disposable trays and plates keep the clear up simple.
- Cool off on a Watersports experience – we’re thinking white water rafting for a real thrill, or perhaps something a little more serene like sailing or canoeing might take your fancy? Perhaps dragonboating will accommodate the whole office in one vessel?! There’s so many ideas for heading out on the water, and no better time to try something new.
These are just some ideas that we came up with when thinking about making the most of summer with your office team. A great opportunity to socialise, participate in a team building or ice breaking activity, eat, drink and enjoy the sun.
