How to throw an outdoor party no one will forget!

There are plenty of reasons to throw an outdoor party from birthdays and anniversaries to retirements, christenings and engagements. You don’t even need a special reason to host a party in your garden but you do need to make it positively memorable!

So here are 5 tips for hosting a garden party no one will forget!

1. Cocktails

Everyone loves cocktails, so why not make your party memorable by providing a variety of fabulous drinks? You could even make it a theme night with costumes and cocktails that match the theme (Jamaican, Spanish, Italian or Mexican?).

2. Music

Ask everyone to bring a selection of their favourite music on a USB and create a compilation that brings groans from some guests and happy smiles from others. Anyone for the cha-cha?

3. Videos

Set up a TV outdoors and play a selection of music, dance and funny YouTube videos that everyone can enjoy, even the kids.

4. Furniture

Arrange your wicker furniture around tables to encourage people to mingle and add comfy cushions to get everyone in a sharing mood. Our modular wicker furniture is perfect for your outdoor party and can be rearranged to suit your needs.

5. Food

Whether you want a BBQ, finger food or sit-down meal, make sure you cater for everyone’s tastes and diets and they will love you forever! You could even order buckets of KFC as a treat or even better, organise a catering company for special occasions.

If your party is held during the day, don’t forget to provide lots of shade from the sun and if it runs into the evening, don’t forget the mosquito repellent!
