Sometimes it’s a shame to stop the fun when the sun goes down. So it’s time to bring out the classic tunes of choice, and make your picnic into a proper party. Hosting an outdoor event in your garden or yard is a great way to catch up with friends and family, and it only takes a few deft touches to dress up your space for a special occasion.
For a chic yet cosy aesthetic, try mixing fairy lights, lanterns and tea lights into your lighting plan for a truly luminous outdoor space.
Although it’s getting sunnier, evenings are still on the nippy side, and it’s always best to err on the side of warmth. A fire pit provides warmth, light and atmosphere, with crackling, glowing flames and plumes of smoke curling into the night. They’re also a fantastic opportunity to embrace your inner child and roast some marshmallows!
When people are making merry, they tend to get hungry. And British evenings often carry a chill, however warm the days. Put those together, and it makes sense to serve up some warming, satisfying grub to keep your guests in the party mood.
Creating the perfect playlist in advance is a sure-fire way to ensure your garden festival atmosphere never falters. If you’re a real music buff, you won’t need any advice from us, but if you’re looking to compile something simple without devoting every free moment for a month, read on.
