Some fab garden party design ideas to get insta-worthy style on a budget. Summer Staycations are all the rage, and we love a gorgeous garden party – backyard festival, family BBQ or elegant tea party, we’ve got you covered.
Make the most of your outside space and extend your living space outdoors! When the weather is glorious (and, let’s be honest, with our British weather, that can be a bit hit and miss!) is there anything better than relaxing with family and friends outdoors and in the comfort of your own home?
Having people over can be so much more than a few burnt bangers on a disposable BBQ! Staycations, garden parties and DIY mini backyard festivals are all trending right now, so if you’re thinking of doing a bit of outdoor entertaining that has the wow factor without breaking the bank, we’ve got some gorgeous garden party design ideas to jazz up your outdoor space and make it the perfect backdrop.
On-trend garden party design right now: relaxed but elegant garden vibes. Rattan garden furniture with an elegant artsy backyard festival twist. A few outdoor furniture staples dressed and styled with soft furnishings, lashings of lanterns, candles, string lights and pops of colour can create that fab outdoor garden party vibe. A few pops of colour and some velvet for that fashionable boho feel.
Something pretty, but modular so it can be arranged however best suits your outdoor area. This will really help create an outdoor lounge, with big comfy chairs and outdoor sofas.
Our Orlando outdoor modular rattan furniture range comes in grey and brown and is in stock right now for fast delivery! Constructed from weather-resistant textured PE resin rattan weave, it comes with plump foam-filled seat and back cushions (which are splash-proof). These pieces can be arranged in so many fun ways to make the most of whatever space you have.
Here are some ways our customers are styling their Orlando sets:
The boho beach hut meets music festival style is everywhere right now as we head into what would usually be peak music festival season. You can totally add to your all-purpose outdoor furniture for special occasions by bringing out some indoor pieces just for that day. Here are our top tips. Remember these aren't outdoor pieces, so can't stay outside, but they'll look fab for a one-off sunny day of fun!
Get that Mediterranean al-fresco dining style by taking your dining table outside. Wood-top or wood effect tables can really compliment the natural outdoor environment to get that picnic trestle table vibe. We love these wood effect tables paired with our stunning velvet-feel Pesaro dining chairs, which would also look fab outdoors for a special occasion, again adding a pop of colour and that boho luxe vibe that's so in right now!
We’ve also seen some gorgeous styling effects with high-gloss tables too – our Pivero and Lira dining tables would be a great alternative to these lovely taverna tables by the sea! Add a red and white checked table cloth and some rosé wine and your garden becomes the Med!
A bar table can create a great cocktail bar, tiki-hut style, a burger bar or just somewhere to pop drinks food and condiments. Add some high bar stools to make it an additional seating area!

You can use other easy-to-move pieces of furniture to create additional seating and surfaces for drinks, food or lighting. Yes, we're talking end tables, side tables, console tables, even your bedside tables! Some chrome or gold touches will add sunshine to your garden party design. Add some candles or lanterns for some extra sparkle when the sun goes down. Couple that with a vintage-inspired 2-seater or accent chairs in rich jewel-toned fabric - velvet is so in right now - to really get that whimsical Mad Hatter's Tea Party meets rock festival look. We absolutely love this idea and have seen it popping up all over Pinterest!
Don't forget to bring this all indoors again when the party's over, but this really will add that wow factor!
Top it all off with blankets, pillows, lanterns, fairy lights and bunting and you’ve got yourself an Insta Pinterest worthy garden party design on a budget!
