Throw the best garden party of your life with these perfect essentials
With parties fully on the menu now that the warmer weather has (finally) kicked in, you may well be planning a classy hoedown in your garden. So how can you throw the best garden party? Here’s how…
What’s on the menu?
Make it easier on yourself to provide for guests by ordering made up hampers of food.
Make sure you can cater for all with drinks. Consider what non-alcoholic options you’re going to provide. Not everyone want’s supermarket pop.
It doesn’t have to be all bbq food.
Have your guests sittin’ pretty
Make your garden the best environment it can be for your guests. Ensure you have enough seating space and shade from the sun.

Protect your guests
Keep everyone protected from the sun rays so they can be comfortable all afternoon long.
Keep it going all night
The worst part of a garden party is when it starts to get cold, but no one is ready to go. Having an outdoor heater will ensure everyone is comfortable late into the night.
Keep the pests away
Don’t let the bugs ruin the party, or make your guests uncomfortable! Citronella candles or a citronella oil will keep away the insects whilst creating a citrusy aroma in your garden.
