Our Tips For Outdoor Parties During The Colder Months

As Summer draws to a close and the cooler months are fast approaching, many people are looking to the future to celebrate when it is safe to do so. There are a variety of solutions to help you celebrate in the Winter whilst keeping warm and adhering to social distancing guidelines. In this blog we are going to provide you with some of our top tips for partying during the colder months.

Keeping Your Guests Warm

Parties and gatherings are about uniting together for food and drink and celebrating with loved ones. However, when it comes to the Autumn/ Winter months keeping your guests warm is essential. There are a many ways you can keep your guests warm, such as a chiminea or a firepit. Chimineas and firepits are perfect for heating up and allowing your guests to stand around the fire keeping themselves warm. You can keep a firepit in your garden and use it all year round, even during the Summer months when you are sat outside on an evening and the temperature drops. Leaving blankets scattered around for guests to wrap themselves up is a thoughtful gesture. There may be some people who feel the cold more than others so having blankets and rugs to hand is key.

As you can’t trust the British weather, putting a gazebo or pagoda up is a safe option as it provides shelter and a place to put food and drinks under if it were rain. Gazebo’s can benefit your party decorations as you can use it to support balloons, lights or bunting.

Patio heaters are a great alternative as they are available in different shapes and sizes as well as the option to be free standing or wall mounted. If you are staying out in the garden late at night a patio heater can be easily turned on, they are available to heat using electricity or fuel like natural gas.


Not everyone has outdoor furniture so to help cut costs, utilising products from within your home will save you time, effort and money. You can add a nice tablecloth to the table which will prevent it from getting damaged. If you are throwing a party in Autumn/ Winter, you may want to consider the seasonal flowers that you could use as centre pieces such as branches or ivy and any other decorative accessories you think will suit your theme. To help set the tone, dressing the corners of your house or outside buildings with fairy lights can add a magical touch. Paper lanterns or tealights can also help with creating a warm ambiance.
