When the weather reports tell you that the sharp winter breeze is finally retiring and warmer climes are upon you, a garden party seems like the best idea. What better way to celebrate the warmth than having a get-together and making the best use of your outdoor space? Listed below are 3 excellent tips to make your garden party a huge success:
- Arrange for a shade
Even if your guests have missed the sun for a while, they would not want to be sunburned by mid-day. If you have a pergola, you can drape it in any vine and use it like an outdoor room for your guests. They can linger under its shade after lunch. It can also serve as the space for lunch itself. You can choose to cover the top completely or leave it partially covered. It will be enough to provide relief from the blazing mid-day sun.
- Modern and traditional
There is a heightened interest in combining modern and traditional styles while designing garden spaces these days. You can build a brick patio in your outdoor space and have a modern table with bench seating right beside it. It is all about providing a beautiful contrast that your guests will love talking about long after the party is over.
- Don’t forget the kids
If you have a family with kids, you would always look forward to get-togethers where other kids are coming over. While it is imagined that kids can play anywhere, more people are demanding spaces that they do not need to weed out regularly. A digging area with a free-form and filled with plants, rocks and different textures will encourage imaginative play. While the kids get busy in active play, you and your guests can enjoy a laidback meal or a drink.
It is all about innovating and exploring your outdoor space to maximise its potential.
