Business event management: a Devon summer garden party

Show your business in the best possible light with a fabulous Devon summer garden party – and let us handle the styling and business event management.

You might want to celebrate this year’s successes with your clients, launch your newest brainchild, or hold a charity event. Whatever the reason, throwing a summer party is a great way to impress – as long as it’s done well.

Add a dash of Blue Fizz business event management, and our creative vision can turn a garden party into an incredible opportunity for you and your team to throw a stylish and beautifully unique corporate summer event. We could also arrange for a covered marquee area or all manner of fabulous structures at your event with a decked area (good for those wearing heels). We never allow the rain get in the way of enjoying summer!

The secret to success

So, let’s set the scene – a freshly-cut green lawn is littered with vintage-styled deck chairs beneath a lavish marquee covered with ambient mood lighting and candles. Guests roam amongst stunning floral arrangements as you delight in fabulous creative canapés; the clink of glass is heard as a toast is raised and mood music wafts in the warm breeze … A garden party is hugely adaptable in terms of what you add to it.

But if there’s one secret to successful summer party entertainment, it’s that it should feel effortless; stunning; sophisticated and yet relaxed. And engaging with a fabulous team of professionals to deliver such an event is key.


To add an energy, we can find the perfect live band to perform.

Nothing quite captures the imagination in summer like a jazz ensemble – they work brilliantly to capture the feel of long, lazy summer nights. A Caribbean style steel band also creates a fabulous summer atmosphere, with an uncanny knack for making an otherwise mild night feel a few degrees warmer; they’re available in anything from a duo up to sprawling multi part groups.

Slightly more unusual would be to go for an eclectic feel with a melange of  tuba, drums and banjo.


Experiment with food and get creative with gourmet barbecues, big pan pan parties and shared platters – a visual feast best enjoyed as guests soak up the sunshine. Finish your festival food off with ‘build your own’ desserts such as an Eton Mess stall – the perfect summer pudding.

We can also create beautiful bespoke table settings for you, as well create chill out areas to relax and unwind in.

Lawn Games and entertainment

Outdoor lawn games are always a hit at summer parties, and offer an old fashioned twist to interactive event entertainment – guests love a chance to try croquet, skittles, or perhaps giant chess and Jenga.

For outdoor events with a carnival atmosphere, there are lots of themed stilt options available.  You could also add circus entertainers and a dash of magic, both of which are great for setting the scene on arrival.

Lights, camera, action!

A photo booth is a fantastic ice breaker. Anyone can step into their alter ego or get ‘in theme’ – even if they’ve just come direct from the office. A high calibre photo booth company can build a custom set to order (using company branding) and bring a jaw dropping selection of props for guests to try on – they can even further strengthen any marketing message by uploading to social media live from your event

Alternatively hire an event photographer for the evening. Reportage imagery is great to create the story of the event, both behind the scenes as well as capturing the moment – use on social media and blogs to shout about the occasion.

Themes and styling

Summer is an opportunity to allow your imagination to run wild and get creative and embrace themes such as: Indian Summer, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Bollywood, Barefoot in the Park, Summer Festival … the possibilities, like the summer (we hope!) are endless …
