What makes a good garden party?
This summer is all about reconnecting with friends and family in your garden or outdoor dining area. To throw a successful and memorable garden party, you will need to have the right garden furniture, entertainment, tableware, weatherproofing, and props if you are having a themed party.
Outdoor furniture is versatile and easy to arrange. Try placing chairs around a fire pit or a coffee table as a casual place for guests to chat. Let guests enjoy themselves while lounging on deck chairs, perfect for BBQs and other parties outside. If you are dining al fresco for your garden party, wooden garden or oxford sets are great for this. These sets are sturdy and look great when dressed with cushions, blankets, and tableware. If you are looking for something more casual, picnic benches are a fantastic option for you.
Rattan Garden Furniture
Durable and comfortable outdoor seating is a must for any celebration. The most popular outdoor lounge sets are our rattan furniture, perfect for guests to sit back and relax while enjoying wine and nibbles.

As much as we all wish for a beautiful day outside to party, we know that isn’t always predictable. You can easily weatherproof your space for a party with some great outdoor essentials. Gazebos and parasols are perfect for cover when it drizzles or rains. Patio heaters are always a good idea if temperatures are not optimum.
Crockery and Glassware
Decorate your outdoor dining area with the same attention you would give table settings in your house for a party. Choose crockery with summery designs to set the scene along with colourful glassware. Jasper Conran Chinoiserie Wedgewood, Fiji, and Timeless crockery sets exude summer elegance and match our coloured glassware.
Linen Tablecloths and Napkins
Linens don’t just protect tables and soak up spills. They can be a great add-on to create a garden party theme or setting. For napkins, choose a colour that complements your tablecloth and runner. Want your outdoor table to take the spotlight? Choose a tablecloth in a bold colour. If you are hosting a more formal event, white or off-white is always a safe choice.
