Top Tips for entertaining at home this summer

After over a year of having all of our celebrations at home, a lot of us have found the magic in celebrating occasions from the comfort of your own home. This summer with restrictions starting to ease, there are still a lot of people who still want to create magic memories from home whether that’s celebrations for birthdays or family BBQs. We share our top tips for entertaining at home this summer.

Take it outside

We are blessed with some lovely sunny days in the UK and we think they should be taken advantage of! Think summer BBQs with a beautifully set up table. For the sports fans you could even host Euro’s viewing parties complete with a TV, bean bags and plenty of beer. Take your entertaining outdoors this summer by hosting gatherings in your garden. Take a look at our brand new Event Igloos for those extra special occasions. 

Go the extra mile

Creating a pinterest worthy tablescape might seem like a lot of work, you have to think about the colour scheme, the centerpieces, the placemats, glasses - this list is endless. That's why at Christmas we created our tablescapes in a box and they are back with 3 beautiful designs for summer! It takes all the hard work out of tablescaping so you just need to make one purchase that does it all for you! With 3 new stunning styles to choose from, we have you covered this summer, ‘Pretty in Pink’, ‘Tropical Luxe’ and ‘Moroccan Nights’.      



Create a Beverage Bar

What's a party without some refreshing drinks or cocktails? You can get really creative with your bar area by setting up decorative buckets or coolers and fill them with beers, cans or bottles of wine. Keep your guests happy by having everything out and ready to self serve so you don't spend the whole event bartending. We love the idea of filling drink dispensers with delicious cocktails or juices to keep things easy.


Keep your guests comfortable

If you are hosting outdoors, think about blankets at night. If it is going to be hot, think about fans or an indoor space guests can escape the heat. If you are entertaining outdoors at night, ensure you have enough lighting outside - we have an amazing range of lighting to keep your celebrations going into the night. Think about seating and whether you need to hire additional seating or if you can call on some friends to help you out!
