Hello August

Summer is in Full Swing

...which means so is the summer event season!

At the beginning of every month, we like to think back at some of our previous events whilst also looking forward to future ones and the new and exciting things we can bring! However, throughout the months, we get a large number of 'last-minute clients', who have stumbled across our website and want to add some finishing touches to their big day!

We know how exciting it is to have everything ready for the big day, but we also know how tempting those final touches can be. So this month, we thought we'd share some of our finishing touches that are perfect for an August event...

Usually, the UK promises some glorious sunshine in August, and it's important that both you and your guests are hydrated throughout the event! When planning an event, drinks are usually pretty high on the list but when thinking of some last-minute additions why not think of PopABalls? We're proud suppliers of PopABall products which can be added as a last-minute addition for your drinks! The bursting bubbles of flavour are designed to add new flavours to your favourite drinks, and they work great in soft drinks too. Whilst the shimmer for prosecco is a great way to add some fun colour to everyone's favourite glass of fizz. PopABall products work great as a last-minute addition, adding something new and quirky for your guests to enjoy as they create their own concoctions.

For last-minute entertainment, we have our iPod party packages that allow you to plug and play with a powered speaker. This is a great solution for events that are a spur of the moment idea, as well as being a finishing touch for those who have been planning for years and already have entertainment - allowing you to have music whilst the entertainment sets up or well into the night once the entertainment is finished. You can really get the party started (and keep it going) with this simple plug and play package.

One of the best things about any event is making memories and it can sometimes be difficult when loved ones are no longer around. Our wishing tree, Twiggy, is a great way to display loved ones who are no longer with us. As a rustic statement piece, Twiggy offers a lot of versatility. You can hang photos of loved ones or messages to loved ones on the individual branches. You can leave Twiggy bare with well-wishes or wrap her in dainty fairy lights. Twiggy is unique and works in a range of different types of venues, becoming a talking-point while giving you the chance to remember those who unfortunately cannot be there.

We can also offer bar and waitstaff as a last-minute solution! Our bar and waitstaff can be on hand throughout the event serving food and drinks, even if the caterer or bar wasn't booked through us. Our bar staff can manage the bar whilst ensuring glasses are taken care of, while our waitstaff can work with your chosen caterer to ensure all the food goes out at the right time (and to the right person!) and help with the packing away. Sometimes, when booking food and drink for an event, staff can be a bit of an oversight. Some venues offer bar options but not staff, whilst others offer staff but not a fully stocked bar - which is why we like to offer our versatile services to ensure everything is unforgettable. Alike our flexible bar and waitstaff, we also offer complete glassware hire as a last-minute solution! Our glassware can be delivered to your doorstep in protective cases and collected the next day, so your chosen staff can serve the drinks (or guests can serve themselves!)

In the summer, nothing can really beat a nice cold drink. Not only does our Kegerator offer something cold, but it also allows your guests to serve themselves as they pull their own pint! As a stand alone unit, our Kegerator goes well with any pre-booked bar package and is compact enough to sit behind the bar, to the side or anywhere you really fancy! It comes stocked with everything you need, and we'll even make sure your guests are filling their glasses with their favourite as they pull their own pint.

Finally, one of our favourite last minute additions to a wedding is our handmade rustic Mrs & Mrs letters. Our light up letters are a great talking and photo point for weddings and are versatile to suit LGBT+ weddings, too! Working both indoors and outdoors, these letters can be displayed in a number of ways. We've seen them work against catering tables, displayed on dance floors or even stacked on tables near the gifts! They're a perfect rustic touch that all of our clients have fallen in love with.

These are just some of the many products and service we offer. As a small business, we're proud to offer such a range that can be adapted to fit your personal event.
