We show you how to create an atmospheric ambience in the garden with the right decorations and practical furniture.

Host atmospheric garden parties - this is how it works:

1. Outdoor furniture for every occasion
2. Stylish decoration for the garden party
3. Tips for the outdoor dinner
4. Radiantly beautiful outdoor lamps
5. Vacation feeling for your garden party

1. Take a seat - outdoor furniture for every occasion

Before you get to the garden party decor, you should choose the right outdoor furniture. Are you planning a large barbecue buffet? Then long, extendable garden tables are suitable . If you are focusing on small snacks and cocktails, bar tables are the ideal solution.

If you like it creative and cozy, just do without dining tables and chairs and instead spread outdoor rugs, picnic blankets or cushions on the lawn. Add a few small side tables or stools - and your individual outdoor lounge is ready.

2. Attention to detail - stylish decoration for the garden party

What must not be missing in any case at a successful garden party: the decoration. A few simple steps are enough to give your garden a whole new atmosphere. Printed napkins in summery colors, striped paper straws in large glasses, pretty tableware and vases with fresh meadow flowers provide as table decorations for an inviting and cheerful ambience. Colorful lanterns and fairy lights in bushes and treetops complete the overall picture of the garden party decor.

An absolute must for the summer party are sunscreen and cold drinks. A large parasol, water dispenser and ice bucket that keeps enough ice cubes ready for the whole day are indispensable at the garden party in summer.

Our tip: Add raspberries, lemon or fresh mint to the ice cube water - it will give your drinks that extra something. To give your guests an extra treat, keep sunscreen and insect repellent spray handy in sturdy wooden boxes. Deck chairs make the vacation feeling perfect.

4. Radiantly beautiful outdoor lamps - so you bring your garden to shine

When the sun slowly sets and your garden party is far from coming to an end, outdoor lamps and candles bathe your garden in magical light. Whether placed on the garden table or the open lawn - with indirect light decorative outdoor lights create a cozy ambience and stage your plants. Currently, modern battery LED lights are conquering our gardens, which even manage without any power source.

5. Pure relaxation - vacation feeling for your garden party

You create a relaxed atmosphere with outdoor beanbags or with hammocks. With a homemade iced tea, which you serve in style in large preserving jars, your guests can relax well here.

And if even more people come than expected, you can blow up the Lamzac air lounger in no time. Whether Hawaiian sounds, relaxed lounge music or party beats - wireless outdoor speakers promise the right background sound for your party in the garden.

By the way: It doesn't always have to be a large barbecue grill for the barbecue party. Even a small table grill conjures up a variety of delicacies, from steak to vegetable skewers, without taking up too much space. With the Dancook barbecue and fire pit, you can first prepare your barbecue food and later in the evening remove the grate to grill marshmallows or stick bread in the open fire - rustic romance at its best.
