What Makes the Perfect Garden Party?

Hello summer!

The warm weather endures and Brits are embracing the great outdoors up and down the country.

The long, light days, and warm evenings of summer make for great garden party weather, so now is the perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy some al-fresco eating.

But what makes the perfect garden party?

Nomow bring you some top tips, which could make your garden party just that little bit more special this year.


Entertaining others in any way requires a bit of forward thinking and careful planning. Think about whether you are you going to have a theme, what time of day you want to host the party, and who you are going to invite. Planning these things early will take much of the stress out of hosting, leaving you to enjoy the fun! 


Lawn games are ideal icebreakers, and can be a great way to get everyone involved and having fun. From boules, croquet and badminton, to carnival style ‘ring-toss’ games, lawn games add a bit of healthy competition to the party! At Nomow, we understand that heavy footfall can take its toll on natural grass lawns, which is why we recommend artificial grass to all our clients.


Food is an essential part of any garden party. Depending on the size of your get-together, you could opt for a crown-pleasing barbeque, or alternatively if you don’t want to stand over hot coals all day then some tasty sandwiches are sure to go down well. 


If your party is going to run into the evening, make sure your garden is well lit to prevent any accidents. You can pick up tea lights and solar powered lanterns fairly easily, or you can opt for a more permanent range of outdoor lighting to last all summer long. 


Probably the most important of any garden party is the garden itself! A well-maintained garden speaks volumes and can really add to the atmosphere of your party, and make your guests feel truly at home. Look out for garden centre sales to pick up discounted plants, decorations and garden furniture to spruce up your outdoor space.

If your garden is in a bad state, and you don’t have the time or means to recultivate an entire lawn then why not consider artificial grass? Nomow grass is the hassle free, no maintenance alternative to natural turf and comes with a 5-year guarantee.

Don’t have a garden? No problem! You can add artificial grass to a balcony or roof terrace to create a natural backdrop for an outdoor gathering on a smaller scale.

No matter what’s going on in your garden, Nomow grass stays green, gorgeous and maintenance free 365 days a year!
