What Do You Need for a Garden Party?


Summer is still in full swing, and with any luck, we will still have some soft autumn weather to enjoy, which means garden parties are still very much on the menu.

If you want to make the most of the rest of the warm weather and your garden, you might be planning on getting a few alfresco gatherings in. However, if you have not had the chance to do that yet, you might wonder what it is you need to create a successful garden party.

This piece will take a look at what you need for a garden party so you can make the most of the rest of the summer season.

Choose a Theme for Your Party

Every good party has a theme, and it can be as outlandish or as downplayed as possible. Smart casual is just as much of a theme as “Jungle” or “Hawaiian,” and it completely depends on you as to what kind of vibe you want to go for. The world is your oyster, so get as specific as you want for some real fun.
Characters from your favourite tv show, fantasy theme, game themes, or country themes can make for great variety and offer an interesting element to your gathering.

Book the Food and Drink

What is a garden party without the catering? A sad one – that’s what! The food and drink are two of the most important aspects of any party, and they are often the things that people look forward to the most-  especially if it is being catered by a professional company or you are making your famous dishes that people love. Make sure to consider which option you are going for or if you are going to use both when preparing for your garden party, so you know what you need to get in place and can work out a budget.

Sort the Space

The space in which you are holding your garden party is going to have an impact on how many people you can have over. It will also influence where the food is going to go, if you are going to have any activities, and whether you will need to hire any additional facilities such as toilets or extra furniture.

You will also need to decide whether you will be decorating the area, how you want it laid out, and other logistics such as parking or if anyone is staying over after.

A garden party is great when the weather is nice, but if it does start to chuck it down, you will need a backup plan such as a marquee or ample indoor space. This is worth considering, too, especially in this very changeable climate.

Send the Invites

Give your guests plenty of time to know about the party, for them to let you know if they have any special requests or requirements such as dietary restrictions, and also for them to be able to plan their outfits! The more time they have to prepare could mean the more effort your guests put in.
