Garden Parties Woo.


Hi hi, I’ve been wishing for Spring since about September when the weather turned cold and it rained for about 3 years.

Can you remember the last time you spent a Spring or Summer evening sat outside with friends? I can remember almost every time like this and they’re always the best nights. There is something really humbling about being outside and enjoying the company of people you care about.

Unfortunately, I am without a garden but one can dream. When we lived at university, we had a big garden and some old sofas outside and one of those massive wire wheels as a table. It was grand. We spent many summer nights drinking and messing around in the back yard. Oh, to be a student again.

One day I will have a garden and hopefully spend many warm nights there with all my favourite humans. And this is what it will contain:


Of course no garden party is complete without a barbecue grill. Especially in England, where we have a tendency to light the BBQ at the first sign of sun. When it rains 90% of the time, you have to make the most of the sun. We’ve only ever had those disposable ones in the past.

For during the day, sunglasses are essential, as are the ice lolly moulds. I remember having them as a kid and making them using orange and blackcurrant juice during the summer holidays. How come the 6 week holidays always seemed so long and hot?

I might be dreaming a bit with the hot tub, but its my dream garden party and I can do what I want. I’ve also always wanted a sofa swing thing, my friend has one and they’re so relaxing. I’m just going to be greedy and accept the sofa bed too.

Then when it get’s darker and a bit colder, turn on the chiminea, turn on the flashy wine glasses and get the blanket out.

Pretty much a perfect night!

How you would spend an ideal summers night and what would you have in your garden?

    I can’t even remember my last garden party which makes me sad now. Here in Australia it’d probably involve a barbecue and mosquitos. I wish I had a garden, I’d enjoy throwing a nice little garden party with a few good friends.

    I can’t wait to be able to sit out in the garden with friends again! It’s been cold for far too long now, and I’m longing for those cool summer evenings with a drink, some fairy lights and good company! (Plus, barbecue food is amazing, haha).

    You just summed up my ideal summer night! Garden parties are the best where you can just relax and enjoy the fresh air and chat, however it has been so long since I had one. No garden is complete without a BBQ! x

    Oooh, I love garden parties! I can’t wait to use my garden in the summer and invite friends round- our new garden is so gorgeous!! I spent most of the afternoon mowing the lawn, pruning and raking leaves and it looks so pretty!
    We went to Alton’s last summer, our local garden centre, and they had these amazing expensive outdoor socialising log-cabin type things for millionaires- they were amazing! We took lots of pictures posing!

    I want ALL those things! I would absolutely love one of those dome shaped things that you can sit in, like egg pods or something! X

    I’m with you on wishing for Spring since last fall. I wish we could’ve just skipped winter altogether. We don’t have our own garden either but our building has a really nice one downstairs. I really need to take better advantage of it this summer.

    Tell me about it! I love waking up in the morning and having the sun already up or rising at least.

    I love those ice-lolly makers, they’re so cute. Deffo on my summer shopping list!

    I miss having a garden so much! My parents garden was amazing, so much space and my mum had everything covered in twinkling lights and tea light candles, we used to spend every summer evening out there, chilling by the pond and catching up. I miss those nights so much! Living smack bang in the city centre the closest I can get is a park nearby, but I’m pretty sure it’s not OK to light tea lights and drink gin there until the small hours!
