May is a marvellous month, as it has not one but two Bank Holidays. If we’re lucky enough to get such glorious weather for the next one, the Spring Bank Holiday weekend from 26th-28th May, it’s the perfect excuse to throw a garden party.
Here’s just a handful of other fabulous Bank Holiday party ideas, perfect for making the most of the spring weather:
Hold your own bake-off
If you adore the TV programme and fancy yourself as the next Mary Berry, why not prove it by organising and winning your own cake competition? It’s easy to plan, and the Event Experts have all you need to present all of the icing-topped cakes and bakes beautifully – from colourful table covers to candles and cake supplies. Ask all of your guests to bring along their own cakey creation, and you can even set a theme or category if you like. The very best part is that everyone gets to enjoy tasting the entries and choosing a winner!
Add your own twist to a BBQ
BBQs don’t have to be all the same, just hot dogs, burgers and buckets of coleslaw. Why not add your own twist this Spring Bank Holiday and do something a little different? There are loads of ways to spice things up, such as asking your guests to bring foods for the BBQ from a particular country or trying a vegetarian-only barbecue. You can have a seafood-only menu or try only foods that you’ve never tasted before. You can even have a cook-off between all the budding BBQ chefs that you know. Just shake things up a little and see what fun you can have!
Throw an outdoor fun day (ideal for families)
If you have lots of friends with children, the perfect way to keep the kids occupied is to organise some sort of interactive sports tournament. It could be as simple as a football game, or you could really push the boat out with an inflatable ‘It’s a Knockout’ style obstacle course. As long as you’ve got enough space and enough people to take part, it’s a great excuse to get outdoors and celebrate the brilliant weather.
Pop up a marquee
We all hope the weather will be gorgeous for the second May Bank Holiday weekend, but it’s best to make sure you’ve got some cover for your party. A marquee is the ideal way to enjoy an indoor-outside experience, where you’ve got protection if it rains but can throw doors and sides open if the sun shines. If you’re having a Bank Holiday blowout, a marquee is a party essential.
