Posted May 10, 2022 by in Decor

If you are the kind of person who likes to do a lot of entertaining, then using your garden space as an extra solace to party is a really good idea, especially in the spring and summer months when the weather is likely to be perfect for a little alfresco dining.

It’s just so much nicer to eat, chat and have drinks outdoors when the sun is shining and the heat is on, but of course, not all gardens are exactly made for hosting.

The good news is, that is something you can easily change by incorporating these tips into your garden:

Install a deck or patio

First thing you are going to want to do is to get a free decking project estimate or patio quote. Why? Because patio and decking provide you with the perfect place to put your garden furniture and parasol. It provides you with a bae for the lawn where you can all sit and relax in comfort. It really is that simple.

Turn up the heat

Fire pits are very popular and with very good reason. They are ideal for ensuring you can keep the party going even if the weather starts to cool down or it gets dark out. Three’s nothing like gathering around a hot fire on a crisp evening with your friend and family around you to really make you appreciate the simple things in life.

Let there be light

Unless you plan to pack up the party at dusk, you’re going to need plenty of lights to help you keep the party going. Solar-powered lanterns, fairy lights, and candles are all great options as they are not too harsh – they create an intimate level of lighting that is perfect for cocktail parties and alfresco picnics alike.

Make it comfy

If you plant o entertain regularly, then plastic garden furniture is not going to cut it. Rattan chairs with soft waterproof cushions and big oak tables that look great and last forever are much better options that will help to make everyone feel at home and enhance the look of your yard space at the same time.

Floor cushions, hammocks, and swing chairs are also good additions that will enable you to offer everyone a seat if you tend to have a lot of people over from time to time.

Gimme shelter

A gazebo or awning is also a must. They provide much-needed shelter, not only from the heat of the dun, but from showers too, Many people cancel their outdoor plans if it rains, but it is always good to have the option of continuing under the gazebo if the rest of your guests are game.

Alternatively, if you have a bit more to spend, a summer house could be a good alternative, giving you the best of both worlds.
