Create a Glorious Garden Party with these Top Tips
If you plan to host a garden party with your friends this spring/summer, it’s time to get your outside space in order. These tips will also be handy for those trying to let/sell their properties at this time of year, as they’ll help your garden stand out from the crowd:
Bring the outside in
In terms of interior design, the lines between outdoor and indoor space are becoming more and more blurred. To really make the garden feel like an extension of your property, select elegant outdoor furniture that wouldn’t look out of place inside the home. If your property benefits from patio doors, leave them open during your garden party to allow the guests to spill from the outside in.
Colour blocking has long been a fashionable trend, so it’s no surprise that it’s entering the garden world. To get the trend right, look at a colour wheel and pick two to four contrasting colours. Mix and match these shades in your outdoor furniture, accessories and plants to radically update your garden décor.
No matter how big or small your outdoor space, adding flowers in pots or beds will bring your garden to life and provide a talking point for your summer garden party. For those seeking low maintenance florals, plant daffodils, tulips and crocus. These delicate flowers come in a range of colours, and are able to withstand the chilly spring weather and shade.
Light it up
Under-lighting is a huge trend in interior design, as is sustainability. Bring these two trends together to create the ultimate evening ambiance. Place solar under-lights within flowerbeds to create a magical atmosphere. If your property boasts a pool or pond, put rechargeable floating solar lights in the water, which will create a subtle but effective setting.
We hope these tips encourage you to get outside and spruce up your space or throw a perfect garden party this spring!
