Guest post- Essentials for turning your garden into buffet party!

We may be in the firm grips of winter, but there is no reason to push those thoughts of hot summer weekends out of your head. Furnishing and decorating the garden for a BBQ requires a lot more thought and consideration than simply buying a few grill packs. Here are three essentials you will need to consider to ensure your party goes off without a hitch.


If you are brave enough to host your buffet party during a clear winter’s day, or take the festivities late into the night during the summer, you will need to find a way to prevent your guest’s teeth from chattering.

There is a variety of outdoor heating methods available from Whites Stores. Cast iron chimneys serve as both a source of warmth and an attractive focal point to your garden. They fit in with the natural surroundings and do not look as out of place and artificial as patio heaters. Just make sure you have an adequate supply for wood and kindling to take you through the late hours.


Once you have an idea of the number of people in attendance, make sure you have ample seating and table space to accommodate everyone. If your guests need to stand, make sure you have room to display the full buffet outside, so that guests do not have to keep popping indoors for more.

If you are feeling really adventurous, you could always splash out on a hot tub. You can hire them from companies like and it will be delivered the next day. Perfect for adults and children alike, there is no better way to relax than in the garden.


An excellent way to inject some fun into the buffet is by picking a theme. A Mexican garden party, for example, gives you the opportunity to adorn your garden with eye-catching decorations like national flags, piñatas and sombreros. It may be a tad cliché for some, but if the food and music matches the theme, the guests will enjoy and appreciate the effort you have gone to.
