Date Posted: 19 July 2018

It’s summertime and, as the saying goes, the living is easy - right? Here’s 5 top tips on how to ensure you throw the perfect garden party this summer without having to stress too much beforehand…


  1. Choose a theme!

A party’s theme will influence what sort of decorations, food, drinks and music you have. Some of our favourites include:

  • Wimbledon- copious amounts of Pimms and strawberries & cream!
  • Vintage beach party- bring the beach to your back garden!
  • Fiesta – throw a bright, fiesta themed party!
  1. Create an easy-to-make menu

A cold buffet, the perfect hassle-free menu- easy to make and even quicker to serve!

  1. Transform your garden!

If you’re looking to impress your guests, décor will be key! Our three favourite inexpensive décor items are: bunting, fairy lights and candles.

  1. Supply a range of beverages

While Pimms is of course a summer party must-have, not everyone will enjoy the same drinks you do, so be sure to include a range of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

  1. Choose the perfect summer, garden party playlist!

A fun selection of summer singalongs is essential. Brighten your guests moods by playing a range of songs from different eras, include a ‘summer throwback’ for all ages!

A fun party doesn’t have to be copious amounts of work, be it rain or shine, with the tips above it is possible to host the perfect summer garden party.
