Whether you’re looking to host the party of the year or arrange a small bash with your nearest and dearest, choosing the perfect venue and theme is an important feature to set the tone for the occasion. Parties are the ideal time to put your own stamp on things and go that extra mile to share memories with those closest to you.
There are plenty of ways to celebrate in style. If you’re planning on throwing a party, check out some fun ideas to make your event the party of the year!
Unique party venues in London
The capital is one of the best places to lay on a party experience like no other. The mix of venues in this diverse location can set the scene for any type of theme from quirky club nights to intimate fine dining. It’s not just London’s traditional venues that create the wow factor either, as you can choose party the night away on the River Thames or perhaps experience a private viewing at one of the city’s captivating museums. The beauty of throwing a party in London is the eclectic choice on offer to suit all budgets. You can, of course, put on an event for any occasion, and birthday, anniversaries and christmas parties all top the list for a great night out in the big smoke.
Private dining for special occasions
If you’re looking to create a private and intimate setting, opting for a fine dining experience is the perfect treat. Fine dining is often associated with exclusive venues and white tie soirees. However, if you’re looking for something a little more homely and tailored to your tastes, there are plenty of funky and fun venues offering delicious menus. To suit all palettes, you’ll find everything from Asian-inspired cuisine to hearty American steakhouses in cities and towns across the UK. Many party venues will also accommodate special requests and tailored menus to help you deliver a unique party experience for your guests.
Get creative with your party decor
If you’re hiring a venue, in most cases, you’ll be able to add your own creativity to the decor. For venues that have a mostly blank canvas, deciding on the theme is a great place to start. There are tons of ideas that can be tailored to the occasion, here are some of our favourites:
- Vintage chic – Light fabrics and table dressings, rustic accessories, candles and fairy lights, bunting
- Summer festival – Bright garlands, paper lanterns, pinata, vibrant floral arrangements
- Sleek and modern – focal colour palette, elegant and simple accessories, neutral floral arrangements
- Beach party – Summer-inspired accessories, coastal colour palette, driftwood/rustic trinkets

Don’t forget to have fun
Party planning can be pretty stressful, but if you’ve planned ahead, there’s no reason why you can’t sit back and relax as the day or night unfolds. If you are struggling to bring your idea to life, why not consider the help of a party planner or ask the venue if they can lend a hand on the day. In many venues, they’ll be more than willing to iron out the details and get everything moving, which just leaves you with the job of enjoying the party of the year in style.
