Venues for summer party perfection

Garden parties in country getaways like Hatfield House or Hever Castle bring in the option of lawn games, mazes, and outdoor grazing on strawberries and cream and Pimm's. The nights are longer, and the evenings are balmy. The organiser can build more into the programme, guests can take their time, and everything is a little more relaxed. 

Choosing the right summer party venue also sends a strong message to guests. What better way to hype up a business than through a trip to Twickenham? What better way to wind down than on the River Thames aboard HMS Belfast? What better way to say thank you then an escape to Beaulieu House? Venues send a message that backs up all the reasons why staff are being rewarded. 

We take the comfort of your guests seriously, so you can rest assured that each of our summer party venues follows essential Covid-19 safety measures. 

Eat and drink the sunshine in

Once you've chosen the perfect setting, you just need to add the food and drink. At Lime Venue Portfolio, we unite unique venues through amazing food and our chefs love experimenting in summer. From delicate cakes to light and fresh meals, our chefs will create a menu that sets the tone from the first glass of Pimm's to the last glass of Champagne.   

Fresh seafood is an increasing favourite with guests at summer party venues, so organisers should keep an eye out for gorgeous iced platters, smoked salmon and crab blinis. Afternoon tea parties are also incredibly popular, offering a quaint and quintessentially British experience that's irresistible. 

Improve your brand identity with a summer party

Holding an event can be a great way of building your brand's identity and define your business to yourself, your team and your external audience. A summer party venue provides employees with the chance to refresh and get outside in the sunshine, but it’s also an opportunity to create a real buzz and increase public awareness of your organisation. You could even encourage the media to attend – who doesn’t love free publicity? 

Why is PR and branding so important? In a word, credibility. With the constant bombardment of advertising and social media ads, potential customers have become savvy and can often see through traditional advertising. A well-constructed and eye-catching announcement can really work to give customers a glimpse into the personality of your organisation. Adding a PR and branding strategy into your event planning is a great way to encourage potential customers to seek you out.
