It won’t be long until the warm summer months are here. It’s the time of year when your garden truly comes to life. So why not show off how amazing it looks by organising a garden party. Whether it’s for a princess birthday party or a get together with friends, garden parties are an excellent way to enjoy your outdoor space. While it may seem premature to start preparing for summer, it could take longer than you think to get your garden ready. So follow these three easy steps to get your garden ready for the fabulous parties you have planned.
Remove and Replace
It’s likely that before you host your fantastic garden party, your garden will need to be spruced up. The cold and harsh winter weather can have a significant effect on the appearance of your plants, lawn and hedges. So take some time to remove any dead branches and flowers from your garden area. Replace these unhealthy plants with fresh ones that add colour and brighten up your flower beds. This will drastically improve the space and make it more appealing for your party. You should also start regularly mowing the lawn and cut back any overgrown hedges and trees. Jet washing your decking, furniture and pathways may also be something you want to consider doing.
Create a seating area
You can’t expect your guests to stand up for the entirety of your party. So encourage them to rest their feet by creating a comfortable seating area. Start shopping around for chairs, oversized pillows and bean bags online. These items will make your guests feel more at home, and they can be easily moved and placed anywhere in your garden. If you already have some chairs or benches, why not add some brightly coloured cushions to them. This will make them looked refreshed and more enticing for your guests to sit on. Ensure that you have enough seating option available for all the guests you intend to invite. In addition to these items, you can also buy tables and Cantilever parasols. These items can add more functionality and comfort to the space, especially if you intend to serve food and drink.
Decorate your garden
To start decorating your garden, firstly you need to choose the right lighting. Outdoor fairy lights, lanterns, and stake lights are all brilliant options you could use. Even small candles in glass jars can set the tone for a party. You can then start looking at other decorations such as bunting, pom poms, and wooden signs. If in doubt, you can’t go wrong with colourful vases with flowers in for your tables. Look around your garden and start planning where you want these decorative features to go. Remember that less is always more. Too many decorations can be distracting and make your garden look messy and confused.
No matter what size your garden is, it will make the perfect venue for a summer party. A bit of hard work now allows you to get your garden in tip-top condition before the summer arrives. So what are you waiting for?
