garden party essentials

FINALLY, we can meet our friends and family in gardens again. Although the weather may be a little temperamental in the UK, we are pretty sure that we will be able to get at least one or two garden parties in this year. Whether you are cooking up a BBQ for your friends, cracking out the firepit for the family, or just sitting in camping chairs with tunes and a glass of prosecco, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at our top 5 essentials you need to head to a garden party.

Now we aren’t putting together a shopping list of food to make and drinks to buy. Our garden party list is all about you. From sunglasses to SPF, here is the list of everything you’re gonna want to take with you to every garden party.

What to take with you to a garden party?

  1. Sunglasses
  2. Sun protection
  3. Hat
  4. Raincoat
  5. Tote bag

1. Sunglasses

We like to be optimists and we truly believe that sunglasses improve every single outfit. There is nothing worse than realising you have forgotten your shades, just as the sun comes out.

2. Sun protection or spf

Anyone that knows anything about skincare will swear by the importance of SPF and they aren’t wrong. It goes a long way to keeping your skin feeling youthful, plump and protected from UV rays.

3. A hat or cap

Keep the sun out of your eyes and your scalp protected with a casual cap. Easy to style and always on trend, a cap is a must-have essential for any garden party.

4. Waterproof coat

Okay we don’t wanna sound like your parents here, but a waterproof coat will actually make your experience so much better. It will protect your hair and outfit from getting wet and will probs just go in your bag if you aren’t using it. What’s the harm?

5. Tote bag

If you are going to a garden party, chances are that you won’t be packing light. You are probably contributing a bottle of booze, carrying snacks, a picnic blanket, maybe even a mini speaker set. Make sure you can carry all your stuff without needing to ruin your look with some tatty bags for life.
