Things To Consider When Hosting A Garden Party | Outdoor Parties 2020

You've decided to go ahead and throw an outdoor garden party. Thanks to the recent updates on Government Guidelines you finally have the chance to celebrate your child's birthday outside. Fantastic. We're going to talk to you about what you need to consider at when hosting a garden party.

Things To Consider When Hosting A Garden Party | Outdoor Parties 2020

Prepare For Rain!

The weather might be great, but if you live in the U.K you know rain is always a possibility. If it's just a light drizzle you can easily set up covers for your guests to stand under until it passes. But if the rain is a heavy thunderstorm that won't be passing anytime soon, it might be best to postpone for the time being. While we can have up to 6 people now outside, there are still guidelines in place about having people inside of your homes. The last thing you want to do is get drenched or break any guidelines. If you are aware the day of the party will be raining, best to give your guests a heads up that the day will be postponed. Everyone's a winner that way. If you are planning on having children's entertainment attend the party, we recently published a vlog that offers guidance on what to do if it rains.

Beat The Heat!

Quite the contrary the previous advice, you also want to prepare for the sun as well. We had a huge heatwave just last week that got up to 30°C. Safe to say it was a warm day. To combat the heat make sure yo have covers that provide shade across your garden. Might be a gazebo or a large umbrella to provide cool shade. Have some sunscreen protection in advance as well but ask your guests to bring their own. Sunscreen is very hands on and you don't want to be touching each other to maintain the social distancing rules. Keep prepared and beat the heat!

Garden Games!

Kids love to play games. There are tons of games for them to play without worrying about social distancing. Musical games are the most popular to go for. You have musical statues where you get all the kids to dance in a specific spot and then freeze once the music stops. You also have musical animal impressions where you play different animal sound effects and get the kids to guess the type of animal that makes the noise. There's a lot of games available that don't involve anything touch based. Another great addition is to get hula hoops for each kid to stand it. It makes sure they maintain social distancing and adds that bit of extra fun for them.

Plan A Route For Your Guests!

Before your guests arrive it's best to plan a route for them in advance and have them arrive through another entrance. If you have a back/side gate that leads straight into your garden from the outside, best to go with that. That way no one has to walk in and out of your home to get into the garden party. If you don't have a secondary entrance to your garden then make sure your guests don't spend too long in your house and only enter one way to exit the other. Bring tons of hand sanitiser as well but we're confident your guests will have their own as well.
