Party Must-Haves For Your Summer Garden Party

Summer is one of the most anticipated parts of the year, and it’s clear to see why. Summer affords us longer evenings, bright colours, and garden parties. If you had been waiting for the right time to throw a party to get your nearest and dearest together – it’s a Summer garden party. As the social calendar heats up, plan an unforgettable soiree with these balmy must-haves.

Photo booth

Photo booths are a party must-have at any time of the year, but Summer creates an exciting backdrop with ample natural light. Build a flower backdrop to set your photo booth against so that your guests will compliment your event aesthetic. Decide on which type of photo booth will be the biggest hit with your event; whether it be a photo booth, Instagram printers, GIF booths or Mirror booths. If you have previously had a knockout event with an Instagram printer, why not surprise your guests with a GIF booth? These photo momentos will keep your guests warm for the remainder of the year.

Summer theme

This time of year, Summer becomes its own theme. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add some festive flare. Reinforce the Summer feeling by choosing a floral or bright theme that will give your event a significant pop. Garden parties give you styling leeway, with Mother Nature doing most of the work in setting the scene for a day or evening of frivolities. Extend off the natural theme by using materials like hemp and light cotton – these provide visual and tactile connections to the warmer months and will give your garden party the perfect furnishings.

Refreshing libations

What does Summer taste like to you? How about citrus zest, spice, and sweetness? These are the building blocks of Summer cocktails, and will keep your guests refreshed and relaxed. Find unique glasses to hold your cocktails to keep it looking fresh – and don’t be bothered if the glasses are mismatched. Depending on the size of your party, you can always reach out to the suppliers of the libations and see if they can offer a display that will work with your Summer styling. Avoid drinks like espresso martinis and dark alcohol, keep it to the fresh fruit-based flavours.


The soundtrack of your event should be light and bouncy, encouraging your team to get on their feet and moving. Live music will create an immediate atmosphere, and there are a few options you can consider. A live band is lots of fun, and Summer lends itself to many genres. Avoid anything too heavy, your music should complement the party and not dominate it. A DJ is always a great option too, as there are few overheads and you can have a say in what the direction of the playlist will be.

Summer is for enjoying the outdoors, and dressing in colours and cuts that you cannot wear again for the following nine months. It’s also for capturing these warm moments and immortalizing them with a stylish photo booth that will complement your garden party.
