Looking forward to Summer Evenings

With the evenings slowly starting to get lighter and hopefully warmer, the chickens are going to bed later, which means it won't be long until we can start thinking about Garden Parties, a thing we love in the warm summer months.
We are very fortunate to have a rather large garden, which does mean that any family birthdays or gatherings usually take place at our house!! (that, and the fact I dread the thought of transporting all six children and their belongings to someone else's house)

The first three children were born in April meaning garden parties were a bit hit and miss with the weather, then we had a September and November, finally little Tyrus was born in June, so I can guarantee his 2nd birthday Party will be an outdoor affair!

We love to have barbecues as they are just the perfect summer food, quick and easy to do, although the only problem that we have is, we are in a small rural village with no street lights, so Outdoor Lighting is essential, towards the end of the evening, the back of our garden gets VERY dark without illumination!! I can remember going to a friends 21st birthday party that started in the afternoon and was lovely, however as the evening drew in, there was no lighting in the garden and it became increasingly difficult to see any other guests (so make sure there is light!!)

So, for the perfect Summer Garden Party you need :

- Excellent Company
- Nice warm weather
- Good food and Drink
- Outside Lighting
- Somewhere to sit down
- A couple of blankets towards the end of the evening, when it gets a little chilly.

All I can say is, roll on the summer evenings....

This is a featured post as we LOVE the summer and garden parties.
