With many festivals now postponed until 2021, it’s time to rethink one of our favourite summertime staples whilst we wait for their return next year. Here are 5 ideas for recreating festival flair at home this summer with Garden Trading.
Carve out a little relaxed corner for the main event. Fire pits and chimeneas will keep everyone warm when the sun goes down, whilst adding a sense of occasion. Pile up blankets and cushions for softness and comfort.
Bringing real festival flair to your set up, festoon lighting is a must-have for a festival type feel. Wind round tree branches, string along walls and fences or use festoon poles to set a magically-lit boundary around your activities.
TAKE A SEAT
Embrace the easy-going style of festivals by mixing seating. From deckchairs to camping chairs, it’s easy to create relaxed amphitheatre style seating to give everyone a good view.
SERVED IN STYLE
No viewing is complete without treats to rival any concession stand. Create a snack station using a butlers tray with hot chocolate in enamel mugs, toffee apples and popcorn jars or using prongs to toast marshmallows to make everyone’s favourite s’mores recipe. Try hot chocolate in enamel mugs
Old sheets tied between trees or attached to fences creates a makeshift screen. Create a solid surface with wooden boxes and hook up a projector to, stream a favourite movie, gig or play. And you have yourself an outdoor cinema, stage or theatre. And don’t forget about blankets and cushions, to make it all super cosy.
