how to organize a garden party

Looking forward to your own garden party, but dreading all the preparations that come with it? Organizing a garden party may seem like quite a task, but take it step by step and you’ll see everything will fall into place.

1. The brainstorm

A birthday, a spring feast, a new year's reception, an anniversary or a graduation party, ... There are plenty of occasions to organize an intimate garden party for. And, mind you, summer is not the only season for garden parties. Your garden can serve as an amazing backdrop for parties all year round! So there’s no need to feel restricted when you’re brainstorming for a theme and original touches to match the occasion.

2. The feasability test

The second step is to verify whether the party you have in mind is feasible in your garden. What may seem impossible at first, may just work with some minor adjustments.

Just imagine: your covered terrace and your living space are too small to receive a large group. By simply opening the sliding doors and dressing both spaces as one single room, you create all the space you need to entertain the people you want to invite.

Another example: let’s say organizing a sit-down dinner in your garden would be too much of a hassle. Then why not organize a walking dinner on the lawn instead? Your guests will be pleasantly surprised!
