• Social Garden Essentials

    June 29, 2021 | Seasons

    Create a gorgeous garden gathering space with these garden essentials!

    It’s always nice to host for friends and family in our greenspaces, but this summer it’s going to be a little more difficult. (For the time being anyway!) So, we have put together some essentials that will help to keep your guests comfortable and happy when visiting you outdoors.


    Whether you’re looking for a feature or a more practical piece, firepits are a fantastic way to keep warm later in the evening and to create some cosy lighting! Here’s our top picks…

    Impress your guests with this stunning geometric piece from RoseAndWalker on Etsy.

    Create a centrepiece with this detailed globe firepit from B&Q.

    Keep it simple with this firepit basket from John Lewis.


    Keep the drinks flowing outside! Guests need to stay in our gardens as much as possible, so make sure to provide somewhere for them to keep drinks cool and to hand.

    Fancy something a little swanky? The Outside Gang Drinks Cooler is perfect for next to a hot tub or table.

    Need something a little bigger? Try this 3 in 1 cocktail table on Etsy.

    Looking for storage? Try this serving trolley from Wayfair.


    As the evening draws in, create a lovely ambience with outdoor lighting.

    Use lantern lights to brighten up any part of your garden. These are great for moving and changing around depending on how many guests you may have. We love these solar powered lanterns from Festive Lights.

    Light up the outside of your property or garden with these stunning bubble glass wall lights from Dunelm.

    Pimp up your parasol with these fab filament bulb parasol lights from Dunelm!


    If your garden is overlooked or nearby a busy road, it can sometimes be quite uninviting for guests, especially as you’re having long overdue catch ups! Living screens are an amazing way to create a private space and to also have a barrier against noise and wind.

    These stunning ivy screens are incredibly versatile; they can be planted around your garden to create privacy, shade and as a wonderful new and stylish aesthetic.

    These gorgeous green hornbeam screens are so versatile; they can be planted around your gardens to create privacy, shade and as a wonderful aesthetic. They are also an environmentally friendly feature that is perfect for lining pathways and helping local wildlife in public areas.

    Shelter and Shade

    We can never rely on the great British weather! Make sure to always have a shelter ready for the rain and (hopefully) for glorious sunshine!

    This giant parasol from Aosom will be sure to shelter your group of 6!

    Cover the whole patio with this shelter from Wayfair.

    Looking for something more versatile? This gazebo from Primrose can be extended to create extra shade or shelter space.

    We hope that you and your friends and family have an amazing time in your gardens this summer!
