Planning Your Summer Event Selecting A Gazebo Plus Some Other Tips.
With summer finally starting with some seasonal warm weather now is a good time to plan your summer events. Although the weather has turned warm your first question or consideration should be what if during your event it turns wet, cold and windy. The answer is to use suitable weather proof structures such as a heavy duty gazebo thats able to stand up to the wind and rain. In addition inclement weather can quickly destroy a lawn where an event is held so its also a good idea to hire some artificial turf or coconut matting to cover your existing lawn fully are partially in the areas that are going to receive the largest volumes of foot traffic for example under your gazebo or marquee.
Selecting a gazebo – with loads of different models and designs to hire make sure the one you select is a heavy duty gazebo able to stand up to the task. look of a strong frame with well made joints in the frame and a covering material thats water proof and fire resistant.
Event Parking – you need to consider parking even for the smallest event, if its just a small back garden event then invite the people next door with the promise of some free drinks and food. Even if they do not attend they are more likely to be understanding when the street is full of your guests cars.
Food – Two main tips keep the food simple unless its a event based on food its unlikely people are attending your event because of the food. Secondly start your barbecue fire early, in the history of barbecues no one has ever started one to early. If your event is in the evening start the barbecue in the morning. You can always add more fuel and damp down the heat but if you leave starting the barbecue to late and the weather is cool or wet it can take forever to build up the heat to cook food properly.
Lighting – if its an evening event then the rules for lighting are much the same as a standard garden lighting scheme although you might be hiring lighting just for the event. Firstly clearly light steps and doorways for safety, next add some uplighting for example up into trees and shrubs for effect and finally for mood lighting use large candles or oil burning lamps in your garden borders or along pathways etc
