Choosing a theme is the first step in planning the perfect terrace party. Once a theme is selected it creates guidelines for your décor, food, music and lighting, ensuring you throw a beautifully thought-out and cohesive gathering.

Music has a huge influence on a party’s mood and atmosphere, which means creating a playlist in advance, featuring songs that compliment your party’s theme is a must. It’s also important to ensure you have a few hours’ worth of songs, to keep the party going throughout the evening.

Lighting can make all the difference when planning your perfect terrace party. Bright and happy lights are ideal for a mid-day summer barbeque, while dimmer lighting is better suited to a romantic dinner party to help set the mood.

Having self-serving stations at your party is a positive for both you and your guests. It allows your guests to indulge in food and drinks all night long, while alleviating you from the stress of serving everyone throughout the evening.
