8 Must Have Garden Accessories for Entertaining in Summer 2018

Summer is finally here! It’s time to expand your internal space and make the most of the warmer weather. Alfresco living continues to grow in popularity year on year and offers those who have restricted inside space the opportunity to entertain your friends and family.

Aside from having a bit of clear up in the garden, if you are looking to make your outside space the social epicenter of the season, you will need a few garden accessories to make your outdoor space come alive. Here are the must-haves to make entertaining in your garden that much more appealing and enjoyable for all.

Garden Sofas

Garden Sofas

To maximize your outdoor living space, outdoor sofas are a must. Not only are they extremely comfortable for your guests, they also merge the lines between your inside and outside space, providing a natural space to socialize. For maximum effect, consider circular, half-moons or pit shaped sofas, which make it easy for your guests to chat together in one space.

Hanging Around

Goodbye hammocks, hello hanging chairs! Hammocks used to be all the rage but where in reality quite impractical and of course meant you needed something to suspend it from. Well thanks to the revolutionary hanging chairs, you and your guests can enjoy the ultimate comfort in any size garden, wherever you would like it.

Entertainment Hub

For the ultimate summer entertainment opportunity, get yourself a hot tub! Whilst it may seem somewhat extravagant, hot tubs can be used all year round. Therefore, it’s really a worthwhile investment, after all why just entertain in the summer months! Hot tubs provide a focal point for your guests and everyone can enjoy this perfect activity to truly unwind.

Stylish Shelter

Stylish Shelter
Now, we all know that the weather is pretty unpredictable and the last thing you want is to have your gathering ended abruptly by a sudden down poor. That’s why you need a summer house to save the day! Available in a wide range of sizes and styles, these wood structures provide the perfect semi-inside space for when the weather is not on your side. Alternatively, you could opt for other shelter such as an awning. However, these do not provide shelter from all the elements like a summer house does.

Heat Source

Fire pits and heaters are the perfect centre piece for your sofa pit and they are available in wide variety of styles, bringing moody lighting and cosy warmth to your social gathering, allowing you to continue long into the night.

Mood Lighting

Mood Lighting
Fairy or string lights are a very simply yet extremely effective way to dd much needed evening ambience to your entertainment space. Drape them around trees and shrubs, hang them from fences and trellises to create a relaxing and serene atmosphere by night. You can also consider adding further soft up lighting or lanterns along paths and walls to really bring the whole area together.

Scent-sational Aromas

To really bring your alfresco entertainment space to a whole other level, consider planting some fragrant plants in decorative pots or trellis near your seating area. For day time scents you can choose wisteria or lavender and to ensure you can enjoy sweet aromas into the night, opt for Jasmine or honeysuckle.

Service Please!

Your entertainment area would not be complete without a drinks bar, would it?! A great option it a portable tiki bar which can be put together easily in about 10 minutes – simple, yet effective and of course practical! You can of course design build one to meet your specific requirements. Either way, it’s the perfect addition to your social hub of the season!
