When we were asked this summer to plan a fun-filled activity afternoon for a long standing client, we took up the challenge with open arms. Stones Events is not only a caterer, and this activity laden birthday party shows off our organisational skill as well as our cooking ability! With a few ideas from the client, we secured a variety of games and planned a tournament to determine the ultimate winner. Inflatables were a must, and with water zorbing set up on the lake, a bubble football pitch drawn out and a sumo suit wrestling ring, we delivered on bounce and amusement! The teams also battled on the dodgeball field and took turns at archery to get a chance at the deciding tug of war competition, where the winners were crowned.

Between the rounds of games, the bar served refreshing Pimms, beer and English Garden cocktails and the day was set to the beachy tunes of DJ Sally K. The evening culminated in British and Mexican inspired food stalls, serving ox cheek nuggets, chargrilled chicken and a selection of salads, all followed by Pimms iced lollies and Aperol Spritz pops.

Taking into account the space available to us to plan the games, designing the marquee set up to lend itself to the requirements, writing a menu to deliver on taste was all part of this great summer event. With Stones Events acting as a ringmaster to this bespoke celebration, all added elements came together and the party was a roaring success.
