Gardens are great to have parties in. When it’s the middle of summer and the sun is shining, you can’t help but go outside and have a few drinks and tell a couple stories with friends. Of course, you need to prepare for that. You can’t have a party in your garden if all you’ve got is a blank lawn. Let’s go through a few essentials for having guests in your garden.

A Canopy

Whether it’s raining or just too sunny. A canopy is a great way to protect you and your guests. If it’s raining, it’ll do the obvious and keep the rain off your backs. If it’s too hot and sunny, it’ll keep your guests cool in the shade and make sure they don’t overheat.

It also adds a nice look to your garden. Canopies give a real tropical impression. Sure if the weather isn’t that great, the effect will be spoiled. If it’s nice out though, just stick some calypso music on and enjoy a cocktail in a split coconut.


You don’t expect your guests just to stand around do you? Given how easy it is to buy outdoor furniture online, there’s no excuse not to get any.

What should you get though? For personal use, you have a to get a reclining chair. Nothing is better than sitting in the sun, except for lying in the sun. A reclining chair will give you just that. All without having to be down in the dirty lawn.

For guests, plastic chairs. The stackable kind too. Just so long as you get those types of chairs, you should be able to avoid any storage issues when it comes to those chairs. It’s also advised you get a couple of tables too. If you’re putting on food and drink for your guests, you don’t want them leaving it all on the floor or resting it in their laps.

A Barbecue

Nothing says garden party without the smell of fine, barbecued meat. Even if you’re not much of a cook, this is an essential. If you can’t cook the food, someone else will know how to.

You can either get a fixed brick barbecue or you can get a large portable gas barbecue. Both have pros and cons, but the important thing is that they can cook properly.

A Firepit

When the night starts drawing it, it doesn’t mean the party has to end. A great way to keep people warm and get some light would be a firepit. A fire pit isn’t an actual literal pit with fire in it. It’s instead an inverted dome you lay coal and firelighters into. You light them up, stick the grated cover on top, and enjoy.

There’s nothing better than watching the flames dance in the dark on a summer’s evening.

There you have it. All you need for a great garden party with guests. Isn’t so hard now that it’s all laid out for you, is it? Now go and have some fun in the sun.
