But don’t fear, you don’t have to have a huge budget to get your backyard ready for spring parties, here are a few low cost but brilliant ways to spruce it up.
Fertilize & Clean
Flower beds and grassy lawns are what your party guests initially notice, so check these first and give them any attention required. Remove winter leaves, fallen branches and weeds use fertilizer to give the lawn a good fighting start to thrive and flourish. Cut back and tidy hedges and plants by pruning.
For a quick garden refresher, plant brightly-coloured flowers. Beautiful red, pink and yellow blooms are ideal for spring and draw attention away from the messier unsightly areas. Low-maintenance flowers are perfect for easy upkeep. Another brilliant option is to include garden accessories such bright garden pots and outdoor furniture such a bean bags and throws.
Create a Theme
If it’s an evening of sundown drinks then create a cocktail and nibbles station. Pretty glasses and crockery, matching napkins and colourful tablecloths are perfect for sunny afternoon teas. If the evenings are still chilly, prepare a fire pit or purchase an outdoor heater to keep everyone toasty.
For a day time event, provide shelter from the sun with pretty parasols and hanging drapes. Afternoon to evening parties are a perfect occasion to hang paper lanterns or quaint fairy lights.
