Host Your Own Summer Garden Party
Got something to celebrate this summer? Why not host your own summer garden party! Even if you have no special occasion, taking advantage of the sunshine with a few friends and family is always a good idea. If you’re looking to be a fabulous garden party host, just check out our essential guide below! From decorations, food and seating, we’ll take you through everything you’ll need to know! As well as letting you know the best venues and party packages you can take advantage of to really throw the garden party of a lifetime.
You don’t need the biggest garden in the world to make this work, just a bit of pre-planning! We’d recommend designated seating areas plotted around – a couple of benches or sofas with some plump pillows, some cosy chairs and also a food table and drinks area. As long as you’re not all squished into one place, and there’s reasonable space, then you’re golden! Even if you don’t have any benches or chairs, you could even throw some big cushions and blankets onto the grass instead, sort of like a picnic style. This is a great option for the casual get together.
What’s a party without food? A summer garden party is the perfect time to have a BBQ, why not have guests to bring a few dishes too? If BBQ’ing isn’t your thing, why not try some delicious nibbles such as pita bread and hummus, some fruits cut into shapes such as watermelon stars, or some bite size sandwiches. If you’re serious about having the best top-notch food, and want to have the fuss taken out of preparing everything, then take a look at the party packages available from The Square Club. You can choose between the Simmer, Sizzler or Scorcher party package or the Classic Barbecue, Havana Barbecue or Hog Roast menu. What’s more is that you can even use the stunning terrace and lower deck cocktail bar for your venue. Hand over the fuss to them, whilst you sit back with your guests for a summer garden party you’ll never forget! Check out what’s available from The Square Club here.
There’s nothing more refreshing than an ice cold tipple in the sun. Try something new and serve up some homemade lavender lemonade, a raspberry cooler, some fruity cocktails and some fresh juices. Maybe buy a cheap glass jar drink dispenser and some lovely glasses to give your drinks that touch of simplicity yet elegance. Some other drinks ideas that may take your fancy include; watermelon fizz, rose spritzer, cherry mojito or even a classic old Pimms. Don’t forget the ice!
It doesn’t take a lot to completely transform your garden into a little slice of heaven. Some of the best decorations you can use that add that bit of pizzazz include bunting, candles, flowers, balloons and fairy lights! Take a look at the pictures below for some inspiration on what you could use to up your garden party game! Try flowers in old glass bottles and jars, bunting and fairy lights tied up around the tree branches, big balloons dotted around and candles in lanterns placed on beautifully patterned tablecloths.
Still stuck for ideas?
If you still aren’t sure about preparing everything yourself, why not let someone else do it for you? As well as The Square Club’s party packages mentioned earlier (available here), you can also have your private party venue at No.4 Clifton Village. The perfect place for your summer garden party would be in the beautiful walled gardens, with menu options and drinks and food packages available too. Check out everything they have to offer here. Sit back, relax, and let the work be done for you...
