Wave Goodbye to Summer With a Garden Party

It’s that time of year again when summer starts to draw to a close, the sun is setting earlier every night and autumn is just around the corner.

Whether you’re looking forward to crisp leaves and pumpkin-spiced lattes or dreading the darker mornings, there’s still time to make the most of summer before we wave it goodbye for another year.

How, we hear you ask? With a garden party, of course! We’ve got everything you need to throw the best final bash of the season for your friends and family. They’ll be talking about this one until Christmas!

You can’t expect your guests to stand up all evening, so the first thing you need when planning a garden party is outdoor furniture.

This Oxford Royal Corner Dining Set by Maze Rattan has plenty of space for 8+ people to gather around, tuck into BBQ food, and share stories about their adventures over the summer.

There’s even a built-in fire pit in the centre, so you don’t need to break up the party when the temperature (inevitably!) drops.

Want to be the envy of all your party guests? This incredible Rowlinson Garden Bar is the ultimate place to serve drinks to your loved ones.

The best part is that this bar only serves the drinks that you and your punters like (the worst part is that those punters will probably want to stay past closing time!)

Another way to keep everyone sheltered is with this 3 x 3m Pergola by Maze Rattan.
