First things first, you’re going to want to nail the most important element of any party – the food.
Regularly checking your cooking appliances, like an outdoor BBQ or stove, to make sure they’re maintained and working properly is crucial for any garden party. Equally, you’ll also want to give yourself a solution if the rain comes.
Remember to keep any under-cover areas that you are cooking or BBQing in well ventilated to avoid any nasty accidents – our 3m x 3m Grey Pop Up Gazebo Set is great for keeping the rain away when your burgers are cooking. Investing in a gazebo is also a great way to keep the sun off your heads, and they’re great for relaxing in the garden when the rain is pouring down!
While it might be summer, we know the temperature is likely to drop so firepits are a great way to keep guests warm throughout the evening, and they look cool too!
Your guests can also wrap up in spare blankets and gather around to toast marshmallows as the evening begins to draw to a close. There are plenty of styles and designs to suit every style of garden, including our Geo Fire Pit for a cute patio firepit, or our Round MgO Fire Pit for a stylish alternative.
Another great investment (that you’re sure to use again for summers to come) is picnic blankets for extra seating space. We don’t all have the space to keep lots of extra chairs and tables, so picnic blankets, like our blue herringbone picnic blanket, are a great affordable alternative.
