Garden Party Ideas For All Seasons

Surely everyone loves a good garden party? I have the misfortune of living in the UK, and therefore garden parties are few and far between. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. There are ways to have garden parties at any point in the year. Of course, if the rain is torrential or it’s snowing then your options are limited. However, there are ways to maximise your garden party to ensure it’s amazing. It could be anything from the food provided to great music, the latter of which you can get from Graham Slee HiFi. Below are some common garden party ideas and how you can adapt them to all seasons.

BBQ Party

Everyone loves a BBQ, and when it gets warm, we Brits love to get our grill on. Grilling skewers and burgers, drinking sangria and hanging out with friends are the perfect ingredients to a BBQ, and when the sun is shining, nothing beats it!

It’s tempting to bash out the disposable BBQ’s in summer, but take a look at the deals in local supermarkets. You might just find an amazing grill for a knockdown price. If you’re looking for something high end but at a good price, I recommend this one from John Lewis. Looking to host a soiree in Autumn or Winter? Outdoor cooking doesn’t have to be off the table, why not invest in a tabletop outdoor pizza stove? The heat alone will be enough to warm guests, but top off the night with blankets and an outdoor heater!

Outdoor Screening

I love this idea, and it’s perfect if you have a bigger garden. To pull this off, you’ll first need a projector and some speakers. You’ll also need a laptop so you can connect the two to it. Next, create comfy corners, seating areas and private cuddle dens with blankets, pillows and hay seating.

Paired with fairy lights, this is the perfect atmosphere for a summer evening in the garden, or even for a night with your partner, snuggling under the stars and watching Disney films. For colder nights, light an outdoor log burner and snuggle up.

Cocktails & Fairy Lights

If you’re looking for something a little more high class on

a budget, or if you’re looking to throw a party for a special occasion this summer, cocktails are the way to go. Luxury summer furniture from Lagoon is one way to spruce up any garden space, and installing a bar will take your party to that extra length. Personally, I would be making Long Island Ice Tea and blasting out some summer tunes…

Beer & Firepits

Although luxury evenings are beautiful, sometimes you just want to sit around with friends and put the world to rights. I love the idea of having a feature fire pit (I love this one) in my garden. Imagine sitting around with all of your friends just talking over a beer and feeling cosy by the fire. The perfect song for this garden party idea is Wildfire by John Mayer…Do you have any garden party ideas that can work all year long?

      Same! I actually prefer garden parties in Autumn/Spring as I think the weather is a bit better for it (and means you can have a little log fire going to bundle up to) x

    Beer and fire-pits . . . how timeless indeed!
    There is something to be said for summertime garden parties but I love how your ideas bridge the seasons yet still leave room for fun.

      Honestly same, there’s a storm in the UK at the moment so there’s no chance of getting outside! x
