The temperatures may have cooled a little, but hopefully, it’s only temporary. With a forecast for higher than average temperatures through August and September, there’s still time to host a garden party.
The quintessentially British garden party conjures up images of tea on the lawn and croquet games, which is great if you live in a stately home, but not quite as achievable if you live in a semi-detached the city!
So, in this post, we wanted to share some ideas to help you throw your own garden party no matter where you live… Read on for inspiration!
No garden, no problem – If you’re a city dweller and your outside space is minimal use a local park to host your party. Be sure to take plenty of recycling and rubbish bags with you, so you leave no trace of your summer shenanigans.
Decoration – Who doesn’t love a little bunting? And what a great holiday project for your little treasures. Simply cut triangles from brightly patterned or vintage style paper (dig out all the little pieces of leftover birthday wrap from the drawer in the dining room) and glue them on to string. Hang these in your hedges or on your garden fences for a festive flavour.
It’s all fun and games – If you’re in the park or have a large garden you can get active with rounders or cricket, but if space is limited bust out the board games and run a Yahtzee knockout championship!
Make memories – You may have seen those marvellous party photobooths, but it’s really easy to create your own. Simply source an old picture frame and dig out the dressing up box for props. Your guests will have so much fun with their phones, create your own #hashtag so you can easily view all the fabulous photos on social media.
Let them eat cake – It is a good rule to live life by, that wherever there is a party, there must also be cake! That’s where we come in… Our superfood cakes are bursting with goodness and fresh flavours; we use seasonal fruits and vegetables ensuring the use of the very best quality, mostly organic ingredients.
