Sun’s out, fun’s out; it’s time to gather your nearest and dearest for a summer party to remember. Take the hassle out of hosting with our ingenious tips to make sure your party goes with a bang.
1. Grab yourself a drinks dispenser
Guests can serve themselves so you can focus on having fun.
2. Bin it!
Don’t fancy a mammoth cleaning task the morning after? Dot bins around your home and garden and half the job is done.
3. Avoid watered down wine
Use frozen grapes instead. Guests get a fruity little treat at the end too.
4. Use a muffin tin as a condiment container
Saves space, saves on cleaning and saves leaving full bottles and containers out.
5. Bug off!
Don’t let bugs get a slice of the action; keep the little mites at bay by placing halved lemons studded with cloves around the party.
6. Short on table space?
Get your saw horses out of the garage and place a piece of plasterboard on top. Finish with a gingham tablecloth.
7. Make a menu
Chalk it up and hang it up so guests know what’s on offer.
8. Keep salad scrumptious
Place your salad bowl into a larger ice-filled bowl to keep it cool, fresh and scrumptious.
