How To Throw the Perfect Garden Party With an Oak Garden Building

An oak garden building can become the perfect venue for a garden party. Whatever the reason for the festivities, it can be wonderful to be able to welcome guests and treat them to a delicious meal or some drinks in a perfectly picturesque and soothing setting. 

But for the perfect garden party to go with a swing, a little work in and around your stunning oak garden building up front will make all the difference. So here are some tips to help you throw the perfect garden party this year:

Furnish Your Oak Garden Building Practically, and For Comfort and Style

A bespoke oak garden building can be whatever you want it to be. 

It can be an extra living space furnished with comfortable seating. 

It can be a games room, with additions to entertain those of all ages. 

It could be a place to dine in style, with a refined dining table and chairs looking out over your garden. 

You might even create your own bar or pub right there in your very own garden. 

When you decide the build an oak structure in your garden, you have a wide range of options. The choices that you have in the design phase, and how you fit and furnish the space, can tailor it to meet your specific needs and wishes and make it perfect for a garden party. 

At a party, it is important to think about seating for guests. Will they have enough space and be able to move around easily? Or will things be a bit of a squeeze? Thinking about the furniture you choose and the layout can help you streamline any events and keep everyone comfortable. 

Think about how colours can set the mood too. Whatever tones you choose for internal walls, you might bring in additional hues through additional items of furniture, artwork, and soft furnishings, that can be switched around at different times to set different tones in the space – more vibrant and lively, perhaps, for a party feel, and more muted and organic when you need to relax. 

Add Some Extra Lighting to Create the Right Mood After Dark

If you think your festivities may continue after dark, adding some extra lighting can really help to create the right ambiance. Think about adding fairy lights, lanterns, or some candles to set the right tone and help your party guests get in the mood.

Enhance the Oak Structure With Some Outside Decking

Creating a flow can be important for parties. And if you add some outside decking in front of your oak garden building, this can allow guests to move organically between different party zones as the day or evening progresses. 

You might start with drinks outdoors, perhaps, before heading inside for a sit-down meal. Or keep things more informal and have a buffet inside, so guests can spill out naturally into the outside spaces. 

Make Full Use of the Surrounding Garden

The oak garden building can be the centre of festivities. But the surrounding garden can and should also play a major role. Guests might enjoy spreading out to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the space, admiring the efforts of your gardening work. Make sure that your garden looks its very best and is ready to receive them before your party begins. 

Remember, if you grow your own, your garden could potentially provide far more than just a venue for your party. It might also provide herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables for drinks, and even a meal. 

Homegrown meals taste so much better, and your guests will really appreciate the love and effort you have put not only into preparation and cooking, but also into growing the things they eat and drink during your party. 

Remember, even if the weather leaves something to be desired, your oak garden building will provide a safe and cozy place to retreat to with your garden party guests. So whatever happens, if you have planned and prepared well, your festivities should go with a swing.
