Summer is the perfect time to gather your friends and family for a memorable garden party. Whether you're hosting a casual BBQ or a grand celebration, there are a few key elements to consider to ensure your party is a success. In this article, we will explore some essential tips and tricks to help you plan the perfect garden party.

Do you have enough seating?

One of the first things to consider when planning your garden party is seating. You want your guests to feel comfortable and relaxed. If you don't have enough seating of your own, don't worry. You can easily hire some furniture. In Essex, you can try Alfresco Hire for all your seating needs.

Lighting/Bugs Away

Create a magical ambiance by hanging fairy lights or festoon lighting in the trees and lining pathways with lanterns. Don't forget to keep the bugs away with citronella candles or bamboo flares.

Food to Tempt the Taste Buds

If you don't want to take on the role of chef and waitress at your own party, consider hiring catering experts. You can choose from options like BBQs, tantalizing bowl food, or elaborately designed food stations.

Contingency

Even if your party is in July, the weather can be unpredictable. It's important to have contingencies in place for bad weather. Consider providing sheltered walkways, gazebos, or even hiring a marquee if needed.

Neighbors

Ensure that your neighbors are aware of the party and the anticipated noise. If they're not invited, consider offering to pay for a night away for them. This gesture can help reduce any potential noise complaints.

Planner

Consider hiring a party planner to assist with the planning or project management of your event. A planner can handle decorations, deliveries, and manage any challenges that may arise, allowing you to relax and enjoy the party.

Music

If you don't have live music, create a playlist and hook up your iPhone or iPod to good speakers. Start with easy listening classics and gradually transition to more upbeat music for dancing.

Cleaning

Prepare a cleaning basket for any spills or messes that may occur during the party. Provide it to your planner or caterer, so they are prepared to handle accidents. Consider hiring cleaners the morning after to help with the inevitable mess.
