Recreating the Ibiza vibe for your summer party is guaranteed to give your guests a fabulous experience to remember. If you’re looking for inspiration to make your Ibiza themed summer party unforgettable, here are the main points to consider:
Location is key
To capture the Ibiza vibe, you need plenty of outdoor space and a contingency plan in case you don’t see Mediterranean weather on the day! Your Ibiza party could work by the pool, on a rooftop, in the grounds of a manor house or even in a private garden. Check that you have good access and enough car parking. Some venues will provide catering but you may have to source this separately, so compare prices to get the best deal.
Get creative with your venue
Wherever you decide to hold your Ibiza themed party, the venue is just a starting point. You can transform any space with the right furniture, accessories and lighting. Try scattering white cushions and positioning daybeds next to the pool or on the rooftop for the ultimate in stylish relaxation. Set out different party zones where guests can chill out, enjoy cocktails, have dinner and then dance the night away to Ibiza club tunes.
What’s on the menu?
Find a catering company who are able to recreate the best of the Mediterranean for your Ibiza themed party. Keep the food choices light, eclectic and perfectly chilled. Opt for a range of tapas, mini plates and cone foods to create a relaxed, yet stylish feel that’s perfect for a summer party. Good quality food and drink is one of the best ways to keep guests happy, so it pays to get it right.
Get the party started with a great drinks selection
Capturing the Ibiza mood means having plenty of choice available where drinks are concerned! Create a bar zone ready for when guests arrive and serve cocktails or fresh lemonade. When guests have settled on a daybed, add a WOW factor by providing champagne buckets to keep bottles cool! Sipping chilled champagne from the comfort of a club set or daybed while listening to the best in party tunes is hard to beat where event experiences are concerned.
Lighting at your summer party
Creative use of lighting can transform any venue or outdoor space. As the sun goes down, the party starts in Ibiza, so hiring lanterns is a fabulous way to create an unforgettable ambiance and will definitely get your guests in the dancing mood!
Don’t forget the tunes
Music should be at the heart of your Ibiza summer party. Choose some light and upbeat tunes for background music as guests arrive and move onto classic dance tunes once the sun goes down. Choose a supplier to provide a good quality sound system. Any electrical equipment at your event should be included within your risk assessment, particularly if there is a swimming pool involved.
Finally – enjoy your Ibiza themed summer party! This event is all about living life to the full; taking the time to enjoy the experience will help to evaluate its success afterwards and make the hard work worthwhile.
