A garden party might be something that you host at home, or something that you put on at a hired venue to mark a special occasion. Letโ€™s take a look at exactly what goes into a great garden party, and the tips and tricks you might employ along the way.

Creating the atmosphere

Getting the most from your garden space might mean choosing the right part of it, and furnishing and decorating it accordingly. If youโ€™ve already got your space furnished, and thereโ€™s plenty of room for everyone to sit, then itโ€™s time to hang a few decorations to create the desired vibe. This might mean hanging lanterns or bunting. If youโ€™ve got the right tools, this might take just a few seconds. DeWalt nail guns, for example, are built to attach things quickly, saving you the trouble of hammering.

Bear in mind also that youโ€™ll need to plan for a range of weather conditions. Getting a canopy overhead might be essential if itโ€™s raining. A few fire-pits and patio heaters might also work nicely if youโ€™re planning a garden party during winter. 

The food

The right food can make your garden party truly memorable. If youโ€™re getting the party professionally catered, then you might try to come up with a menu that reflects the theme of your party. In fact, this is something that you can do even if youโ€™re making the food yourself. Just find a few easy recipes online. 

Decide on your theme, and start thinking about the menu you can build around it. If youโ€™re hosting a Halloween party, for example, then you might go for something mexican-inspired, in tribute to the famous Day of the Dead. 

The music and entertainment

Without the right music, your garden party might not be up to much. Again, youโ€™ll want a playlist that reflects your theme. If youโ€™re hosting something big, then you might recruit a few actual professional musicians to serenade you โ€“ or you might bring in a DJ.

On the other hand, there are other kinds of entertainment you might consider. Planning a few games to play with friends might help to break up the afternoon. This can be as formal or informal as you like. Or, you might bring in a few professional entertainers just for the purpose. Childrenโ€™s magicians, or close-up magicians for the adults, might be a hit.
