Whether you live in a city apartment or a house with a backyard, chances are you have some space in your garden. That space can be the perfect place to host a get-together with friends and family. Who knows? Your next party may become the talk of the town once your friends swing by for some drinks and notables. Here are some ideas to help you plan your next garden party:
Decide on your theme
If you have a green thumb and love throwing parties, then a garden party may be right up your alley! You can create a theme around anything you love: flowers, trees, plants, hobbies, holidays, or any other thing you might be passionate about. Having a theme will help you choose decor, invite guests, and make food choices.
Invite your friends
You can’t have a party without bringing friends! In the case of a garden party, you can invite your friends in the form of an invite. You can invite your friends via email, or even print out invitations and post them around your neighborhood. You can keep the invitation simple and just invite your friends to celebrate in your garden. Include the date and time, and some information about the party, like what food and drinks will be offered.
You can also include details about games and activities you may want to host. If you have more than a few friends getting together to celebrate, invite them all to an email. If a few of your friends are more than a few of your friends, invite them all to the same email. This way, you’re sure to get everyone’s attention.
Serve finger food
If you’re hosting a get-together in the form of a garden party, you can’t have beer or wine in the garden. In order to keep the party going, serve finger foods. Some great finger foods include dippers like hummus and olives; dips like guacamole and dips like salsa; or even nuts and fresh veggies.
You can also serve finger foods like cheese and crackers, meat or veggie sticks, and veggie or fruit plates. There are plenty of easy finger food recipes online, so you can make even more custom finger foods to suit your party guests and your preferences.
Don’t forget the drinks!
You may be hosting a garden party in the form of a cocktail party, but don’t forget about the drinks! Depending on the type of party you’re hosting, you may want to serve something specific to the drinks you’re serving. Healthy? Serving fruit juices. Adults only? Serve wine and cocktails.
You can also serve juices and water for guests who don’t want to drink alcohol. You can also serve non-alcoholic drinks like lemonade and seltzer water. If you want to add a little extra something to the party, you can always serve ice cream or other desserts.
Play games and host a sunset party

You can even invite friends to play with you, so you don’t have to host the whole party by yourself. For a sunset party, you can also set up a patio or outdoor space and invite guests to sit and relax with you.
