Set the Scene  

Bunting and paper decorations always add a special touch, as do fairy and festoon lights. You could even make a floral hoop from an old hula hoop (see the how to here – as seen in Dunelm) and fix it to the fence or shed. 

Provide disposable plates, cups and cutlery that only your guests touch and dispose of.

A party isn’t a party without music! Set up a Bluetooth speaker so you can easily stream playlists to it and allow your guests to pair with it so they can choose their favourite tracks too.

Arrange non-sharing food

Ask guests to bring their own picnics and blankets to save the worry of sharing food with others. 

Get food delivered! Lots of local businesses are delivering parcels like afternoon tea or you could go down the usual takeaway route. 

Regardless of which option you choose, always remember to sanitise and ask guests to bring their own hand sanitiser.

Host an outdoor movie night

Make use of your washing line and a big white sheet to create the cinema screen. It’s that simple!

Invest in a wi-fi projector so you can easily stream a movie from your phone 

Ask guests to bring their own popcorn or pick n mix and blankets to get snuggly in
