With summer coming and lockdown restrictions lifting, you could turn your mind toward the summer garden parties that you can host for your family and friends at last. You can choose a theme, colour style and even the food and make it so that your garden is the place everyone wants to be in the coming season. Wherever you are based, the weather in the summer months may range from warm to scorching, but there is never a good reason NOT to have a summer garden party, right?
You can be as casual or as formal as you like, but when it comes to your summer party, you should make it yours. It’s important that you think of all of the details, from the hot tub hire to the solar lights that you string through the garden to keep it bright through the evening. Below, we’ve put together some of the most wonderful ideas to make your summer garden party go off with a bang.
- Hire a Bar. If you don’t have an outdoor bar, you don’t have to miss out – nor do you have to make the drinks in the bar alcoholic ones. You can hire a Tiki bar and have one of the ultimate garden accessories for your party. It’s a fun place for your friends to relax while they are outside with you. You can have a range of mocktails and cocktails, fun fruit juices and more on hand to have fun with in the summer months.
- Create a Vibe. You need to have the right decor for your summer garden party and that includes the right draperies, balloons and bunting to give your outside space some excellent colour. Hang the decor around the garden properly and you can get that Insta-worthy post ready to snap. Consider your colour scheme in your decor and continue the theme throughout your garden for a fun vibe. Decorations can include fun pom-poms and lights, too, and you have an instant party vibe created.
- Great Food. What’s a party without great food? Whether you get the barbecue running or you choose to get caterers in to make it a more elegant event, you need the nibbles that work! You can choose pretty much any cuisine but if you’re going for a theme, try to get it all to match. For a chilled summer vibe, why not go for an afternoon tea but picnic style so that you can get the rugs and over-large cushions out and scatter them over the grass.
- Remember Favours. All parties need favours – even the grown up kind. Coming up with favour bags is going to help you to give a little thank you gift for your friends for coming, too! Think about little trinkets, mindfulness cards and even small ornaments for their homes. Favours are fun for a party, and you can ensure that everyone remembers the charm of your garden party.
Your garden party can be the hero of the hour this summer if you plan it well. Take these tips and make your moment a memorable one!
