Is your head struggling for ideas on the best way to hold an outstanding garden party? Well, here’s a few easy steps to help you get ready for a picture-perfect party.
A good theme goes a long way
The perfect garden party will always have a consistent theme that flows seamlessly throughout the garden, from décor to the menu. For example, if you’re looking to throw a classy soiree, then an enchanting afternoon tea party is the perfect excuse for you and your guests to get dressed up and embrace the fine summer weather. Decorate your garden with some homemade bunting and glittering fairy lights to create a romantic setting and see your garden transform into a magical wonderland!
Positioning is key

When setting up your garden, it is vital that you consider where everything will be placed. By positioning your dining table in the centre, dressed thematically, you provide your guests with a common focal point, where they can engage over food and drinks. Give your guests a selection of settings to enjoy throughout the party.
Alongside the formal dining area, you could have a cosy garden nook filled with plush cushions, scattered across a soft, sumptuous blanket (that of course matches the colour code) in a peaceful area of your garden. Make sure there is enough space for your guests to gather around and talk of how much they love your signature inclusive raspberry ripple dairy free cheesecake! As the sun begins to set, gather your guests around the warmth of a fire pit, while you feast on toasted marshmallows and enjoy the view of stars above.
The perfect food

Creating an Instagram-worthy buffet brings its own set of challenges, as it’s difficult to create a photogenic menu that all your guests will enjoy. We recommend swapping out boring barbecue food for a more delicate menu; how about an elegant array of dainty finger foods, served alongside a fresh salad? Or, maybe a luscious tomato and basil brochette that melts in your mouth. We believe dainty finger food is sure to have your guests with their phones at the ready!
Glitzing things up
What’ more Instagramable that glitz and glamour? With the help of Popaball’s new Prosecco jams your scones and cocktails will be sparkling under the flashes of camera lenses. The delicate raspberry and Prosecco flavouring makes a perfect topper for a fruit scone, whilst the tang of the rhubarb and gin flavour adds a unique twist to a decadent porn-star martini.
