Essentials For A Garden Party

May is National BBQ month and with the bank holiday looming plus the weather starting to pick up we have a feeling it is going to be a good month! There is nothing better than enjoying a BBQ in your back garden, especially when you can have it on a Sunday and not have to go to work on the Monday. We have put together some essentials for your garden so you can have a garden party this weekend and make the most of the sunshine that looks set to stay over the weekend (fingers crossed):



Of course a garden party is not complete without a BBQ. Whether you want to get a quick disposable one, or make a purchase and get a proper charcoal one, it is a must have and top of the list. You can get some really cool designs now too like this pretty blue one from Smiths Nurseries:

Table and chairs

You have to have table and chairs so you are able to enjoy your burgers and salad al fresco. There are some gorgeous sets that will really make your garden look complete, this 8 seater choice from Argos is perfect if you have lots of friends and family members to invite over.

Outdoor seating

Garden games

Whether kids will be there or not, giant garden games are great fun! Basically giant versions or your favourite games like ten pin bowling and connect 4 and you can get them from places like Selections.

You might not be into gardening but there is no doubt that a few flowers dotted around the place makes it looks much prettier. Go down to your local garden centre and ask for their advice on easy ways to add florals to your outdoor space.
