Garden party ideas (How to plan a garden party?)

When was your last garden party?

This post is a guide to planning a party in the garden with a focus on the main boxes which must be ticked. 

An outdoor space is a luxury in a city. If you have an outdoor space, it is surprisingly easy to arrange a really good garden party and even include some live music. If you live in a less congested area and have a large garden then you can become more creative with your party theme.


Many of our clients have regular garden parties and in some cases there are just a handful of guests, but 3 or 4 different service providers to cover catering, live music and other entertainment. Whatever the scale of your garden party, try to focus on the key elements.


A good supply of quality canapes will give you a great start.


Followed by a selection of red wine, white wine and champagne.


You can have music from your iPod playlist, but a live ensemble is so much better.

Or, the 5 piece steel band


If you are fortunate to live in the countryside and your nearest neighbours won't be disturbed, then treat yourself and enjoy the full sound of a Caribbean steel band. When planning a garden party, you will find many dedicated sites which cover all the other aspects and one of my favourite is Country Living. If you are in a city, there are many venues with roof gardens and outdoor spaces for hire. One of my favourites in London is at the Royal Opera House where we covered an event last year. This is not a garden, but an outdoor space with fantastic views.


You can read more about this in our post called Summer drinks on the roof terrace, then contact us early if you intend to book for a summer date. Some of the best parties start with an impulsive idea. Please read our next post on garden parties which includes more images and suggestions for food and drink.

  2. I have decided to arrange a summer garden party for the next summer, but I didn’t have a good idea about it. After reading your article I got lots of ideas to arrange it well.
