Summer is the best season for organizing meetings, parties, and celebrations in which we should make the most of our outdoor spaces, such as the patio and the garden, which we could not have in the cold of December or the November rains. Given this, this season is perfect for organizing that special event one of these weekends.
Take note of the following tips and start making that list of pending purchases that must be done so that your party or meeting is a success.
Tips For Garden Parties In Summer
1. Take Advantage Of Sunlight
Something that will always be useful to you (and it is also free) is sunlight. Set a time in the mid-afternoon where your guests can arrive when there is still enough light, and you don’t have to resort to electric lighting.
If the weather for that day is cool, the sun will be a good incentive for your guests. In addition, you can resort to umbrellas or blankets so that the sun’s rays do not do their thing.
2. Organize Your Guest List
The space is important to consider before knowing who you will invite. We can’t invite 100 people to a 2×2 space, right? You must curate your guest list and check it down to only the most important people.
If your garden is very small, it is not an option to put too many tables and chairs since there will be no space for people to move comfortably. Hence, the idea is to limit yourself and have a much more intimate concept.
3. Think About The Furniture
The main thing is to take for granted how many people are going to accompany you. Once you have the number, you will need a specific number of tables and chairs for your event. For example, if you invite 30 people, try to find two tables for 15 people or three for ten, and find a better way to distribute them.
Do not forget to place tablecloths that match the theme of your party; It will always be much more pleasant to have these kinds of details at events like this.
4. Take Care Of Your Companions
If your party is in the garden, think about putting some special carpet, because we do not want there to be accidents when stepping on the grass or the ground. Also, we keep a little extra cleanliness on our guests’ shoes.
Always have a plan B and consider renting an awning or tent in case of rain. It would be a shame to have everything ready and for an unforeseen rain to ruin the moment.
5. Be Creative With The Decoration
Create a much more festive environment with seasonal decorations. The garden is already (from the outset) a beautiful setting for a celebration. However, a little more color doesn’t hurt anyone.
6. Prepare Food Ahead Of Time
The most convenient thing for a party is to order the food in time. Try to please all your guests and do not look for too trite options.
If your choice is to prepare it yourself, take the time to organize yourself and have everything ready for the right time. We don’t want your guests to be impatient to eat.
We recommend you avoid the kitchen, and you will have enough work organizing everything else. Consider how many guests are confirmed and estimate how much food you will need. Remember that there should be enough than not enough.
7. Add Spirit To The Garden
Okay, what do we require if we already have the guests, the furniture, and the food? That’s right: the music. Without a good musical selection, it is not a complete party. Choose your playlist with the best songs from yesterday and today and give your guests a good time.
Getting your family and friends involved in the party is always fun. You can even hand out small prizes or favors to the most outstanding guests. It is a fun way to thank them for joining you.
