The Ultimate Garden Party Our favourite Summer essentials

Who doesn’t love a good garden party?! Now that Summer is almost upon us, we have compiled a list of our favourite outdoor party essentials, to help make your Summer time gatherings a roaring success. From exquisite garden furniture to delightful picnicware and exciting accessories, it’s time to spruce up your outdoor living space and really make the most of the Summer season.

Sit back & relax…

At Housing Units, we believe the key to any garden party success is comfort. With a luxurious garden furniture set, not only will you be the envy of all your neighbours but your guests will have a comfortable setting to enjoy, relax and unwind in.

Perfect for socialising and family BBQ’s, the Maze Santorini Corner Garden Set has been designed with outdoor living and entertainment in mind. Better yet, its rising table is multi-functional, effortlessly converting from a coffee table to a dining table, for light nibbles to al-fresco dining.

Ideal for more compact areas such as a balcony or terrace, a beautiful bistro set will enhance even the smallest of outdoor spaces. The Maze LA Grey Rattan Bistro Set is perfect for enjoying an early morning breakfast or taking some time out with a mid-afternoon coffee.

Soak up the rays in comfort with a garden lounger, perfect for any loyal sun-worshipper. With its multifunctional design, the Maze Oslo Garden Chaise Set can be positioned and reconfigured in a variety of ways, to best suit the occasion.

Taking you from day through to night, it may be time to turn down the volume but there’s no reason to turn down the heat! With a firepit or patio heater, even once the sun goes down your guests can stay cosy and relaxed against the warm, atmospheric glow of the fire.

We love the Maze Regal Flanelle Garden Bar with Firepit Table, or why not enhance your existing garden furniture with a free-standing fire pit, such as the Cosiscoop Black Portable Fire Pit?


Bring the indoors out

Further enhance the look and comfort of your garden furniture by adding some gorgeous colourful accessories, like sumptuous cushions and cosy throws to take away the chill in the Mid-Summer evenings.

Neutral earthy tones, serene greens and tropical prints will create a tranquil and composed environment, whilst bold colours and floral prints work well with surrounding flowerbeds and shrubs to create a pretty, country garden feel.

Create a magical atmosphere for your garden party with a selection of outdoor rugs, lighting and garden ornaments. There are so many beautiful accessories to choose from!

Let’s get the party started!

Now you have the perfect setting for your garden party, let’s be honest…. When someone mentions a party, food is often top of the priority list. No garden party would be complete without it!

Whether you’re serving casual nibbles, fancy canapés or a hearty BBQ, the Lush Jungle and Amazon Floral dinnerware collections are perfect for outdoor dining. Crafted from a bamboo powder melamine, they are hard-wearing, versatile and feature a fun, tropical design.

A selection of finger foods & nibbles will always be a hit, but why not make your offering even more fabulous with a gorgeous serving platter? We love the Lush Jungle Platter, featuring a stunning tropical print, in a bold and beautiful lush green colourway.

Fire up the BBQ and get those sausages sizzling with the Flamers pack of 24 Firelighters and a convenient 3 piece BBQ tool set.

Don’t forget to stay hydrated!

We believe it goes without saying that a party without drinks is… well, not a party! From light refreshments such as lemonade, to classy cocktails and tantalising liquors, it’s clear that a selection of glassware and serving utensils are a must-have for your Summer soirée.

Create a bar-like atmosphere at home with a fabulous beer cooler tower from Daewoo, perfect for serving not only ice-cold lagers, but juice, wine, punch and soft drinks as well.

We’ve all experienced the heartache of reaching for an ice-cold, refreshing beverage, only to discover its turned warm and flat. Ensure your drinks stay fresh and cold to the last drop, with the Large Double Walled Wine Cooler. Accommodating up to 4 bottles of champagne or 10 beers, it is perfect for entertaining!

We hope you thoroughly enjoy creating your perfect outdoor living area with Housing Units and would love to see how you have styled your garden parties this Summer. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the latest trends and inspiration.
