Tips For Throwing The Perfect Garden Party

Come rain or shine, it’s good for us to spend time in the great outdoors as it can help us to relieve stress, strengthen immunity, sharpen our focus, calm the mind and much more. So, what better way to do this than with a garden party?

Garden Party with a Marquee

Although in the UK climate, the weather is massively unpredictable, you can still throw the perfect soiree by planning for all eventualities. With the use of marquee hire, a roaring BBQ and a well-tended garden, you will be well on your way to a stress-free gathering. 

Prepare your garden

Tending to your outdoor space before having guests is a sure-fire way to impress and ensure everyone’s safety. When giving your garden a once-over, you will want to fill any small potholes, remove trip hazards, cut the grass, pull out weeds, trim dead branches and fill flower beds and vegetable patches with fresh multi-purpose compost.

Set up camp for when it rains

With COVID still not out of sight, it’s wise to ensure that outdoor gatherings stay that way, with the help of marquee hire. Whether or not you trust the forecast, it’s important to ensure you have a suitable undercover area for your friends and family to go in the event of a downpour or away from the scorching heat – if there’s too much sun. Having a sizable marquee will offer comfort and a place to sit and eat a deliciously prepared BBQ, whilst ensuring social distancing where possible. 

Tips for Throwing the Perfect Garden Party

Did you know, you can hire more than just the marquee?

  • Linings 
  • Tables, chairs and carpets 
  • Short-term notice hire on marquees can be arranged
  • Specialists can erect and dismantle the marquee for you

Fire up the BBQ

It’s time to give your BBQ a clean before use. Take the grill apart, place hot plates and smaller parts into the dishwasher, if they are dishwasher safe. For your grill, you may wish to cover in baking soda and submerge in water before attempting to scrub it until it’s sparkling. Clean the base/top with warm soapy water and rinse.

Don’t forget the BBQ fuel, the last thing you want to do is have your food prepped and marinated, and left uncooked. Be sure to pick up your BBQ gas bottles, a size that’s suitable for the occasion in mind. From KG Smith and Son, we can supply you with:
