Well well, it’s finally arrived at last. The long winters don’t get any easier but at last we now have a few seasons in which we all can enjoy what the weather has to offer. On that note lets talk about that great tradition of a garden party. We here at When in Home don’t need a special occasion to enjoy the opportunity to gather family and friends in the garden to eat, drink and put the world to rights. We believe gatherings in the comfort of your own garden can offer the perfect opportunity to unwind and relax.

If you are tasked with hosting the garden party of all garden parties or just an intimate gathering there are a few basics that all good garden parties can have the keep guests comfortable. Lets talk gazebo…

You can’t trust the weather, prepare!

Without doubt the one thing we need to prepare for is the unpredictable weather and the possibility of a summer shower or heatwave. As we know you can get sunburnt in the morning and drowned by midday with the unpredictable nature of the weather. Obviously your first port of call is to check the weather reports regularly in the run up to the day and keep a close eye on it as the big day approaches.

There is a mountain of cheap pop up garden gazebos on the market that can be a lifesaver in these situations. A pop up gazebo can be easily stored and deployed within a few minutes when the precipitation increases. This quick reaction time can save that platter of beautiful nourishment you have been cooking and preparing the last 24 hours and those beautiful new cushions you’ve put on the chairs. Here at When in Home we have a range of pop up gazebos perfect for this. You don’t have to wait for the weather to worsen before setting up a gazebo. They can provide the perfect shade to protect us from the Sun’s harmful UV radiation and help keep our beverages all that little cooler. Check out our range of high quality pop up gazebos here

IT gets cooler sometimes

With all good intentions your gathering may be planned for the hottest day of the year, this doesn’t stop the temperature dropping steadily of an evening. Hopefully enough alcohol has been consumed to stop the guests from noticing this. Yet a more practical solution to stop guests taking refuge in your house or leaving early would be to invest in one of the many outdoor heating solutions on the market.

The choice available in 2018 is wide ranging. Gas patio heaters, coal chimneys and wood firepits amongst others provide practical and well needed outdoor heating solutions. You can find several that can also double up as grills or pizza ovens.

It’s also a good idea to have handy a few blankets and fleeces at the ready for your guests allowing the party to continue outdoors for longer.  Keep an eye out on our website as we will be adding items to keep you warm soon.
