6 Garden Party Must-Haves

  1. Large Parasol

Though it’s nice to feel the sun on your skin for a while, you still need your garden party to have shade. Not to mention, the weather can be finicky and you don’t want any summer rain to ruin the mood. Getting a large parasol is essential because it will shelter you if you need it and it will add to everyone’s comfort.

If you already have an outdoor bar area, you should make sure it’s stocked up on cold drinks, ice, and refreshments. We recommend you make things accessible to everyone so you don’t have to worry about serving. If you don’t have an outdoor bar area, you can get an inexpensive outdoor bar or set up a drink table and make sure there’s a cooler.

You need to make sure your garden party is comfortable for everyone, so you need some outdoor furniture. If you don’t have it, consider investing in it. Outdoor furniture is not just for entertaining, you will get a lot of personal use out of it whenever you need to unwind, read, drink your coffee in peace, and more.

Of course, depending on how many people you’re having over, outdoor furniture may not be enough. That’s why you need to have extra seats for your garden party, just in case. Deckchairs, folding chairs, camping chairs, and other options will work well.

If there’s one thing you don’t want to worry about during a garden party is water. Being under the sun makes you thirstier, so make sure there’s a water dispenser for people to help themselves. You can keep the ice in the cooler by the bar and let people know or top the water dispenser with ice from time to time.

You know how annoying flies and other pests can be when there’s food outside. You spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing all the good food or you paid good money for it, so you should keep it protected. Food covers will go a long way and they will help keep the food fresh for longer.
