Expert tips and tricks to keep your guests happy,

no matter the weather


Easter is on the horizon, and with just a few weeks to prepare before the egg-stra special day, the nation is on the hunt for festive ways to celebrate the annual event.

In fact, Google searches for ‘Easter ideas 2023’ are up 100% in the past 30-days, with demand expected to surge further closer to the day. With the date seeing around 14 degrees Celsius and just 0.4% chance of rain on average over the past few years, it is likely that this year’s celebrations will take place under a mild, dry forecast. And you know what this means… you can extend your egg hunts out into the garden!


So, how do you plan the ultimate Easter event, from the comfort of your own home? It’s time to dust off those hosting skills, as the luxury lifestyle brand, Harbour Lifestyle, and its design experts have revealed how to host an egg-stravagant alfresco Easter event to remember…


Joel Garthwaite, Chief Marketing Officer at Harbour Lifestyle, comments

“If you are looking to host the Easter event of the century, an alfresco afternoon tea is the perfect place to start. Whilst the children are busy searching high and low for the Easter Bunny’s treats, the adults are sure to be expecting a treat or two, too. So, creating a delicious yet delicate buffet of sandwiches, scones, fruits, and cheeses is an ideal option for older participants to enjoy. Serve these using sleek slate trays on a chic outdoor dining table, complete with comfy dining chairs for guests to enjoy at their leisure.

“Once you’ve got the food under control, it’s time to consider how to keep your soiree guests happy, no matter what the elements decide to throw at them. The British weather is unpredictable at best, so it is a great idea to ensure your esteemed visitors are well catered for when it comes to shelter, heating, and lighting. Consider a pergola or parasol to protect your party from rain – making sure that your delicious delicacies don’t end up with a soggy bottom. Additionally, ensure your guests will stay warm once the sun goes down by supplying a selection of throws and cushions for them to use – bonus points if you choose ones in traditional pastel Easter tones! You can even go one step further and install a patio heater – for egg-stra toasty entertaining.”

So, no matter whether you are hosting the neighbourhood egg hunt, or prefer to plan a perfectly pristine spring soiree – you have all of the tips you need to ensure your guests have a wonderful time celebrating the easter holiday.
