John Lewis Summer Entertaining - they've really got everything you need to make your garden the perfect entertainment space.
Outdoor party hints
Make sure you have enough seating for your guests. If you don't have a lot of chairs ask friends if you can borrow some chairs!
Make sure you've got plenty of cups! Why not treat yourself to some unbreakable ones to make the party less stressful! That way you don't have to worry about anyone breaking glasses outside and having to rush to clear up broken glass. They'll come in handy each time you have a party or a picnic too!
Get sunscreen and offer it to your guests if the weather is hot and sunny (Like you want it to be) - nothing kills the fun like sunburn!
Get picnic blankets and rugs for people to lounge on too. Some people love to chill out and lay down outside and relax, so make sure there's room for them! The kids can play on blankets too!
Keep drinks cold in a bucket filled with cold water. You don't need tons of ice - save that for inside the glasses! Keep canned drinks cold too!
Ensure you've got plenty of food. If you're unsure of numbers then get some items that can be cooked from frozen and that way you've got plenty of food in reserve. People are always more hungry outside!
Buy bags of ice cubes if you've got room in the freezer! They're cheap and solves the problem of running out of ice.
Make sure you have plenty of bread - either lovely fresh rolls or french stick perhaps for people to nibble on!
Make dessert simple with either grilled fruit or a ready made cake!
