How To Host A Great Garden Party

With summer in full swing, it’s time to pour the Pimm’s, fire up the BBQ and invite your friends over for a good ol’ fashioned garden party. If lockdown means you have not hosted a gathering in a long time - fear not! We are here to run through the essential checklist you need to consider when planning your dazzling soiree.

Tidy Up Your Garden

Before you think about adding in decorative pieces into your backyard, it is essential to begin by tidying up your space. After a winter of not even thinking about your garden, we know that some TLC is probably in order. Sweep your decking clear of leaves and debris, remove dead-heads off your flowers, mow the lawn, and remove weeds and dirt from your patio. Hide away any garden tools and miscellaneous buckets in your shed so you can start with a clean slate when it comes to making your garden look like an enchanting outdoor entertainment area. Whip your BBQ into shape using a cleaning spray which is especially designed for tough cleaning on grills.

Let Your Guests Dine In Comfort

Whether you’re hosting a family barbeque party or cocktail drinks with friends, you’re going to want to make sure that everyone has a comfortable place to sit. Calculate how many guests you are expecting and dust off your deck chairs accordingly. If your outdoor seats are limited, consider creating informal seating arrangements with large floor cushions and picnic blankets (these will be especially popular among the kids!). If you’re planning to entertain when the sun goes down, it’s a great idea to lay out fluffy blankets which people can use to stay warm if there is a chilly evening breeze. Perfect if you have a fire pit area where guests can huddle to toast marshmallows!

Serve In Style With Our Bargain Garden Party Accessories

Alfresco dining doesn’t need to be complicated. If you want a more stylish touch that paper plates cannot provide, then it’s time to get your hands on our Trendy Bamboo Melamine Tableware sets. Available in gorgeous pastel colours, you can be set for cups, cutlery, plates, salad bowls and serving spoons. You can mix and match the colours of the kitchenware to your choosing! Add a fun touch to your cocktails with unique cups like these Colourful Ice Cream Shaped Drinks Cups. If you don’t have an established BBQ area in your garden, then a great alternative is this Fire Power Disposable BBQ Picknick Grill. You can find this bargain BBQ and a handy fire log to burn online at FabFinds.

Dress Your Garden To Impress

Even if you are not a keen gardener, your backyard can still look wonderful. Artificial trees can be a fabulous alternative to live plants, and are so easy to place on your patio or hang from your garden fence. On FabFinds, we even have small artificial succulent plants which are ideal for placing on outdoor tables and windowsills. These plants are a hassle free way to add greenery to your garden. If you do want to add some live plants to your backyard, then ensure that you pick up some stylish planters and plant pots to add bundles of character to your space.

Light Up Your Garden Party With Solar Lights

As dusk falls, you can party on into the night with the illumination of solar lights. On FabFinds, we have a stunning range of outdoor garden solar lights; choose between string butterfly lights, colourful circular lanterns, garden gnome lights and much more. These are easy to install, and automatically turn on when night falls as they will recharge during daylight – so no effort is required! Place them around seating areas and beautiful planters to bring your garden to light.

Another great way to create an enchanting atmosphere is to place candles on your outdoor dining tables. Add a mix of tea lights candles and lanterns for the perfect illuminated effect. Citronella candles, wax melts, or incense sticks are also a great addition as they prevent pesky insects from bugging your guests. We have these available in zesty lemon or lime scents at FabFinds.

Outdoor Games To Entertain

Games can really be the life and soul of the party. The last thing you want is a bunch of bored guests who are counting down the minutes to when they can politely leave. For adult entertainment, Beer Pong is always a crowd-pleaser. For the kids, there's nothing better than active games like Throw & Catch or Tennis to keep them occupied. Boules are also a great option as grandparents, teenagers, kids and everyone in between will love getting involved in this game which tests your aim. Prepare for lots of giggles, laughter and competitive spirits to be a part of your great garden party.
