Now that the summer months are approaching and spring is in the air, this is the perfect time to start planning your garden party. Once you’ve started drawing up a list of who to invite and have begun to look into catering and drinks, it’s easy for all the preparations to feel overwhelming so we’ve come up with some top tips on hiring furniture for your garden party and how to make your garden party extra special:
Decide on a theme for your garden party:
It can be fun to choose a theme for your garden party to help get your guests in the party mood. A masquerade theme is always popular – ask your guests to wear masks and use lanterns and fairy lights to create a wonderfully atmospheric effect as the sun goes down. Or you could bring the best of Ibiza to your back garden with a fabulous beach party, complete with hired party furniture like deckchairs or Miami day beds. For a perfect finishing touch, serve summer cocktails to your guests!

Creating the WOW factor by hiring furniture for your garden party
Garden party furniture hire is a great way to add instant style and sophistication to your event. It will transform your garden into a stunning, contemporary space that will really get your guests talking. If you have a large garden then you can hire club lounge sets to create a great chill out area where your guests can relax, and a funky bar area with stools for cocktails! By hiring furniture you can transform any garden, however large or small, and can really bring your outdoor space to life.
Catering for your garden party
If you are planning a more formal party with cocktails and champagne, then canapés are always a popular option. Buffets are also easy to prepare and guests can pick and choose what they’d like to eat. Or for a more relaxed affair, a BBQ is great fun and you can get creative with salads, marinades and nibbles! If you are planning a lunch party, then sharing boards often go down well with guests.

Watch the weather
Of course there’s always an element of risk when planning your garden party in Britain! It goes without saying that you’ll need a contingency in case of bad weather – a hired marquee or gazebo can help keep hired furniture and food undercover, and it’s useful to have enough space put aside indoors in case your guests need to make a run for it into the house!
Planning a garden party is a wonderful way to enjoy the company of family and friends while relaxing outdoors. There’s nothing better than sipping a cocktail or champagne as the sun goes down with lanterns and background music creating a romantic ambiance. By hiring furniture for your garden party, firing up the BBQ and pouring cocktails, you can turn your outdoor space into a stylish venue to be admired and your guests will be at a party that they won’t forget.
