Preparing for the ultimate summer party!
The sun has finally made an appearance, the weather is getting warmer, and we could be set for a scorcher again this summer. It’s the perfect time to get out in the garden and celebrate after all that rain and colder temperatures at the start of the year. Your garden may need a little pick me up before you start entertaining but, fear not because British Garden Centres have the perfect products to get your outside space primed for the ultimate summer party!
Take a seat
Outdoor spaces come in all shapes and sizes and the beauty of British Garden Centres’ extensive furniture range is that it can be used to transform almost any area. Whether it be gorgeous seating areas for extra guests or even a sensational bistro setting for a pop-up garden bar, your local store will have the perfect furniture set.
We have a wide choice of modular lounge sets to allow for social conversation and unwinding. Designed with a weather-resistant rattan style weave covering a lightweight aluminium frame, our sets are ideal for comfort during the autumnal evenings. Al-fresco dining creates a relaxed mood, so our dining sets are ideal for informal and tranquil evenings.
Or to create a cosy corner, we have an array of garden bistro sets which create an intimate setting where you can entertain your guests or spend some quality time with your family in the open air. If maybe you just fancy reading your book alone, gently sipping on a drink or simply having a nap, our loungers will turn your outdoor space into a quiet haven, allowing you to unwind to the sounds of nature.
Heat it up
Outdoor heating is a great way to get extend the time spent in the gardens as the sun goes down. Our in-store fire pits and patio fireplaces provide a focal point, a central gathering place and a welcoming environment at parties and are ideal for lighting after dark.
Or to take the chill off the summer evening, why not invest in an electric heater as they are lightweight, environmentally friendly and often with an adjustable heating angle and height, extending the use you get out of your outdoor space beyond summer?
Shine a light
Outdoor lights always make a space more welcoming and give an illusion of warmth after dark. Lights are not just for summer and can be used all year round to create views of the garden and to create a lovely atmosphere when sitting or eating outside in the evening.
At your local British Garden Centres store, we have strings of fairy lights, solar stake lights or lanterns that can really set the mood for your gathering. We have every type of solar light that will work for every summer gathering, adding a relaxing ambience that can stay outside all year round.
If the weather’s good, then you might want to consider having a tasty and flavoursome barbecue. It’s a great way to cook large amounts of food fresh and in front of your guests. We have charcoal barbecues which are perfect for the job and for budding grill chefs and enthusiasts, our ceramic Kamados will cook items to perfection and heats up ready for action in as little as 15 minutes.
We also have a collection of small to large gas barbecues designed for novice grillers, there’s plenty of information for the seasoned grill master.
