Summer is nearly here - BBQ party ideas

The summer is finally here (well, sort of!) so fingers crossed for some great BBQ weather!

Why not make your BBQ a bit different with a fancy dress theme? Here are a few of our ideas:

Hawaiian Theme
The Hawaiian theme is really easy and cheap to carry off. Get some Hawaiian Leis and grass skirts for your guests (which you can  pick up really cheaply in fancy dress shops and online) and hand them out as guests arrive. Make some fun cocktails (and if you feel like splashing out, serve them in coconuts or pineapples hollowed out) or get hold of some Hawaiian style plastic cups. Decorate the garden with Tiki torches (often available from garden centres) to finish off the look!
We've always got Hawaiian bits in stock, so pop into our Fancy Dress shop in Bristol and pick up a few bits!

Beach Party Theme
Nothing says summer quite like 'Beach' so a beach party theme is a great way to celebrate the summer and get that holiday feeling! Get your guests to come along in beach wear to set the mood, and decorate your garden to match the theme with plenty of fun accessories. Inflatable Lilos, buckets and spades, a sand pit if you have one - depending on your garden you could even make some sand castles about the place!

English Country Garden Theme
If you're really into your vintage stuff, this is definitely the theme for you! Instruct your guests to come along in vintage clothes, and set the scene in your garden with some lovely fabric bunting, pretty cake stands and flowery plates. Very cutesy and kitsch! Perfect excuse to make plenty of cupcakes, shortbread and a lovely Victoria Sponge - yum!
