Summer Garden Party in a Marquee

Hopefully the spring and summer warmer weather isn’t too far away, and with that in mind it’s time to start planning your events! Whether it’s your wedding day or anniversary, birthday party, corporate or charity event, or just a long overdue catch up with friends, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into!

Hiring a marquee is a great way to host a party. It can be cost effective if you have the space available and the marquee can be used either as an extension to the house, or as a separate venue within the garden. It is even possible to bring the garden inside with a marquee built over flowerbeds and small trees.

Garden Parties are such fun. There are lots of extra ideas you can incorporate such as coloured tablecloths and glasses. Maybe seasonal garden flowers in jam jars for centrepieces, and night-lights, lanterns and solar lights for long discussions and dancing late into the night… Dressing up a marquee makes it personal to you and your guests and indulges your creative side along the way!

Perhaps you are hosting an 'afternoon tea', or maybe a hog roast/barbecue style affair… Depending on your type of event, you may want a particular table layout inside the marquee setting things up so your guests are seated on long banqueting tables, or perhaps smaller round tables for a more informal feel. You will want plenty of space for your guests to sit and relax inside and outside of the marquee.

Food and drink is usually all organised before the event, but sometimes it’s worth asking your friends to bring something along. This helps to cater for everyone's tastes and needs.

And, do not forget to check the power supply, for the catering side of things, as well as ensuring you have enough power points and plug sockets available for lighting, music etc…

Then, sit back and enjoy the party!!!
