As social distancing measures have been eased, we’re all spending more time with our friends and family. If you don’t have the benefit of a spacious garden to host your loved ones, you may be looking for some creative options to still get that summer garden party feeling.
We’ve put together some ideas for things to do on your balcony this summer, so keep reading to get inspired!
1 – Create your own balcony bar
Whatever budget you’re working with, setting up a bar on your balcony will add a great feature to any get together. You could buy a dedicated bar space, or even a drinks cart that you can bring inside when the party’s over. Ask your friends to bring their favourite drink, and get creative making cocktails!
2 – Have a pool party
Even with the smallest of balconies, your guests will be thrilled to see a paddling pool to cool them down on a hot day. Make sure to bring some ice cream, too!
3 – Make it cosy
This one’s great for a summer evening. Clear some space and put duvets, blankets and cushions out on your balcony floor. Add some fairy lights or paper lanterns to add to the cosy tone, and you could even make it a movie night.
4 – Grow your own
Even if you’re just spending an evening sat out, soaking up the last of the sun, it’s always nice to have your balcony looking its best. Why not add some planters for a splash of colour? You could have flowers, evergreen plants, or even grow your own herbs and vegetables. Just because you don’t have a garden, doesn’t mean you can’t have green fingers!
