Get Garden Party Ready
If you're planning a get together for summer, garden parties are a great way to take your celebrations outdoors and into the sun. Nothing beats tea and cake in the garden or prosecco on the patio. We’ve put together just some of the essential things you’ll need for your garden party planning!
In the same way you would tidy your home before a party, make sure you leave enough time to spruce up your garden. In the days prior you can tidy your borders, pull up those pesky weeds, and neaten your flowers and bushes. Put extras like tools and your washing line away to make your garden feel bigger and clearer.
If you have even longer, you can do bigger tasks like power-washing your patio or sorting your borders and edging. While it may seem like a lot for a party, these are tasks that will allow you to enjoy a beautiful tidy garden all through summer!
No party setting is complete without a place to host your guests. If you’re cooking up a storm and buying some nibbles from the shop, you’ll need a table to put everything on. The right furniture can help bring your space together and give you a place to relax in nature.
If you’re hosting a larger party, a table and chairs with a parasol will go a long way. For smaller gardens and get-togethers, sun loungers and benches may be all you need. Alternatively, simple Folding Garden Chairs are an excellent option because they can be stored away easily when you don’t need them.
Whether you’re partying until dawn or just until the sun sets, solar garden lights provide stunning lighting. With its warm glow, garden lighting is a lovely way to maintain the party atmosphere as the natural light fades. Use stake lights and string lights throughout your garden for a nice ambience. Ornamental solar garden lights can also become a conversation starter!
While you bask in the sunshine and enjoy your company outside, the last thing you want are flies hovering around. Keep those pesky creepy crawlies at bay with the right pest repellents. If you’re enjoying food outdoors, make sure you have some handy Food Covers to it safe. You can also dot some fly traps around to keep the flies away. Just make sure to check all pest repellents to ensure they are pet safe!
