There are many, many advantages to hosting a party in your garden. The first of these is simply that a garden will have a good impact on the theme and feel of your party. Garden parties have a very kitsch and British feel to them, and in the spring or summer they are a great way to get together with friends and create a great vibe. At the same time garden parties also have the considerable advantage of being hassle free and you will find there is a lot less to clear up and that your garden has far fewer things to damage than your interior does.
But the only downside to all this is that gardens are also arguably less suited to having parties and there are fewer facilities that make them ideal for entertaining. For instance a garden will not have the same comfortable furniture, and nor will it have the same shelter from the elements meaning that it's much easier for it to get rained off and that there are fewer places for people to naturally mingle.
The solution? To make some purchases that will turn your garden into an ideal venue for party. Here we will look at some of the things to look into.
The more furniture you have for your garden party the more people will be able to sit down and relax and the more food you will be able to lay out. Look into getting garden furniture that will be both comfortable and conducive to people talking and socializing. If you can't afford to buy enough furniture, and don't want to fill your garden permanently with chairs, then look into furniture around the home that you can easily move outside, and look into borrowing chairs from friends and others.
Likewise you should also look into getting lots of tables where you can arrange food and drinks and which will provide a great central gathering point for your guests. There's a reason that indoor parties normally end up in the kitchen. Outdoor parties, for the same reasons, will end up around the tables.
Using cushions is a great way to make your chairs and your other furniture more comfortable rather than being just wooden or plastic for people to sit on. At the same time you may also want to use garden cushions placed directly on the floor for people to sit on. This will help to create the kind of relaxed and casual vibe you want to create, and with a rug or a blanket on the floor it makes an ideal and comfortable picnic area.
Garden parties have that kitsch spring feel to them already, so why not take this a step further by including a nice traditional tea set so you can make this into a mad-hatter style party. Even if this is a more alcoholic affair, having alcohol in teacups is a great way to make something a bit different and to continue with the theme.
The threat of your party raining off can hang over proceedings like a grey cloud, but not if you get some shelter for people to gather in which can also offer respite from bugs and wind.
