Throw A Summer Party: The Must-Haves

Yep, the sunshine season is nearly upon us (hurray!) and that means only one thing: it’s P-A-R-T-Y time. And a good excuse to throw lots of ‘em!


You can’t deny that when it comes to throwing  an awesome summer party, nothing beats the atmosphere of a good old outdoors event, in a very cool location, of course!

So, whether it’s your birthday, your anniversary, your friend’s birthday or just an excuse to have a good time – here’s our check-list to throwing the best (outdoor) sunshine party this season! Enjoy.

Choose Professional Lighting


No garden party is complete without beautiful and perfect lighting, and when it comes to lighting hire in Essex – here at Monitor Lighting, we’ve got you covered! Lighting is the ultimate enhancement to any event, and can set a theme and stylish atmosphere to the simplest of events. For garden parties with a twist, we recommend opting for fairy light canopies or lanterns to really add an ethereal feel to your evening event!

Provide Lots of Drinks!


Sure, alcohol is fun, but when it comes to throwing a party for a variety of different guests – be sure to provide a range of drinks that everyone will enjoy! If it’s a hot sunny day, provide slush or iced-based drinks such as smoothies and home-made lemonade to cool your guests down. And as the evening draws in, why not opt for fruity cocktails and chilled wines to get in the party mood!

If you really want to impress your guests – why not take a cocktail making lesson before the event? That way you’ll be able to channel your inner Tom Cruise in Cocktail and WOW your guests with your impressive mixology skills.

Feed Your Guests!


It’s a fact, that if you’re throwing a party – you’re definitely expected to provide some sort of food! Whether you prefer to give your guests a BBQ, hog-roast, burger van or buffet – give them something lovely to eat that’ll match the weather and the theme of your event! Buffets are great for all-day events, providing a range of light and tasty treats, whatever the time of day (or night!) Especially for those guests who’ve had one too many Mojito’s and have got the drunken-munchies!

Here at Monitor Lighting, we’re passionate about making your event one to remember, and offer a unique and bespoke range of lighting options and services.
