This summer will be all about garden parties in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, so homeowners will want to know how to throw the ultimate garden party which will maker their events the most glamorous while also helping people to feel safe and comfortable at all times. Here are a few tips for hosting garden parties this summer

Fairy Lights

It is amazing the difference that fairy lights can have anywhere in the home, but they can look fantastic in the garden hanging from trees and draped across the fence. This can create a whimsical, magical and cosy feel once the sun goes down and help to create the right atmosphere for a garden party.

Picnic Area

You will want your guests to be able to relax and socialise during your party while also maintaining social distancing. One of the best ways to achieve this is by having picnic areas on the floor complete with blankets, pillows and throws. This can then be a space for sitting and eating food during the party.

Decorate with Flowers

The garden is going to be an important space this summer and you will want it to look its best whether this is for a party or simply relaxing on a warm summer’s day. Decorating with colourful flowers is an excellent way to do this as it can add colour life and visual appeal to any backyard.

Create a Theme

Chances are that people will be attending many garden parties this summer, particularly with many people hesitant to go to pubs and restaurants even after they reopen. This means that you will want to make yours stand out and the best way to do this is with a theme. This will depend on your personality and could go as far as to be a fancy dress party with games, or simply as a decorative theme with balloons for the event.


No party is complete without music so you will want to work out the best way to have music in the garden – just make sure that this is not too loud and you are respectful of your neighbours. You could also create a playlist for the party so that you are not constantly having to change the music or having silent periods.


Of course, drinks are an integral part of any party. While people are likely to bring their own, it is still important to have a range available including beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks. You might even want to make cocktails with frozen fruit to impress your guests and make your event that little bit more special.

These tips should help you to throw the ultimate summer garden party for friends and family and enjoy socialising after what has been a challenging first half of the year for all.
