Great garden party ideas start with thinking about what furniture to use in your gazebo and what best suits the area you will be using to make a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. Choose a garden party theme or colour – maybe echo the colours of any flowering shrubs or plants nearby – and add tablecloths, seat cushions and napkins to reflect your chosen colour palette. As for the gazebo fabric; our Moroccan valance strips and leg curtains look pretty for summer garden parties and will give extra protection from the sun if the weather is scorching.
Extend your theme into other areas by stringing up large brightly coloured paper pompoms or other garden party decorations such as bunting. Flowers in the same shade add well thought out detail. A formal arrangement adds a sophisticated touch to a garden party, but less structured arrangements of simple blooms in containers such as jugs or jars will create an understated feel more in sympathy with the surroundings.
Regardless of how the English summer is treating us, there are bound to be times when you’d like to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about an assault by the sun or rain. If you want a shady spot to enjoy your garden from, or if you enjoy drinking your coffee and having a nice meal with family or friends, even when it’s drizzling, a gazebo can offer you the shelter you need to make the most of your outdoor space.
There are times, when the weather is nice, that having a gazebo in the backyard can give your children a suitable place to have an outdoor party that also protects them from the elements. You can have a great deal of fun designing them with the items you want, without having to worry so much about the mess!
Our leg curtains illustrate a simple but elegant design and it will truly look great in the summertime or cooler weather.
You can choose a tent size according to the people you plan to accommodate. Our gazebos are heavy duty while others are light duty. Our heavy duty gazebo is made of an aluminium weight-bearing frame. For the styles, they all have a pyramid-shaped white roof.
The main advantage of our gazebos is that they allow you to feel that you are outside in the fresh air and sunshine. Though they protect you from harsh winds and precipitation, they don’t create a barrier between you and your garden. If you love to be outside and feel the cool breeze caressing your cheek, we think that one of our high-quality gazebos would be perfect for you. Have you hired a gazebo before? Once you hire it, you can just use it when enjoying the great outdoors with the loved ones and your friends or family members. Let our gazebo with Moroccan Roof Valance and Leg Curtains take your backyard fun to a whole new level.

Party planning takes time, creativity, and the ability to stay organised. Unless it’s a small gathering of family and friends, planning a party should be a structured process with carefully defined steps. That goes for any type of party, be it a throwback Disco party or a Halloween party for kids. It’s key to know how many guests you are anticipating! Take into consideration the size of the marquee and space you have to comfortably accommodate your guests, this will dictate how much help, you will need to make it a successful night.”
The amount of food and drink might be more important than the kind of food and drink.
Many of us fixate on what to serve, what pairs well with what, that sort of thing. Instead, you’ll want to start out by planning how much you’ll need to happily serve your group. “One of the trickiest parts of throwing a party is anticipating how much food and drinks will be needed and how that will fit into your budget for the party. “For appetizers for a party, a good estimate is to assume each guest will eat 3-5 appetizers each.
Don’t worry about decor. Instead, turn your attention to seating.
No, you don’t need a seating chart, but you do need to figure out who will go where in the broader sense. “Small, intimate gatherings still need seats. Make sure to have enough chairs, or stools for at least 85% of your guests. It will initiate lovely conversation (maybe even between strangers that you introduced when they arrived) and give guests a place to sit and enjoy their food.”
Leave the beer, wine, and spirits out and in reach.
Do a self-serve bar! Where it is all about self-serving, so you’re not running around trying to fill everyone’s drinks. Direct your guests to the cart or table, where spirits, glasses, mixers, and ice are accessible. Do not guilt trip yourself over this shortcut. “At the end of the day, if you have good music, cocktails, and food – your gathering will be a success, large or small.
Have more glasses than you think you’d need.
A change in the drink is a change of glass — you may need to calculate up to 3-4 per guest. If that count causes panic, go for plastic. After the second drink, who is in the mood to judge?
Date & timing of your event.
Settle on the date and time for your party. Try to schedule the party so that it doesn’t conflict with any major celebrations, holidays, or festivals. This way, you’ll have a better chance of people showing up.
