The Coronation of King Charles III is important for the United Kingdom, as it marks the beginning of a new reign and therefore a new era for the country.
The Coronation is an important ceremony that symbolises the continuity of the monarchy and the legitimacy of the new king. It’s also an opportunity for the new king to present his vision for the future, and to strengthen ties with other nations, both inside and outside the Commonwealth.
Charles III’s Coronation is particularly important, as he succeeds the late Queen Elizabeth II, who reigned for more than 70 years, and who became an iconic figure in modern British history through those changing – and often challenging – times.
As a garden owner, why not celebrate this historic event by creating an elegant and comfortable outdoor space in which you and your guests can take-in the pomp and ceremony?
Create a welcoming and relaxed garden by choosing the right furniture and decorating your garden area tastefully!
Here are some ideas for creating a comfortable and welcoming garden.
Create relaxation areas:
Add chairs, cushions, blankets and beanbags to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
Plants are a great way to bring some life to your garden. You can add potted or in-ground plants to create a colourful, aesthetically pleasing environment.
Lighting is a key element in creating a warm and comfortable vibe in your garden. You could use lanterns, fairy lights or solar lamps – or even a firepit – to illuminate your garden.
Water, whether running or still, is a soothing element that brings a sense of restfulness and calm.
Accessories are a great way to put the finishing touches to your garden. Rugs, cushions, and artwork will allow to you stamp your personality on your beloved backyard.
Garden furniture; choosing and arranging.
Types of garden furniture:
Garden furniture is an important element when it comes to enjoying the outdoors fully. There are several types of garden furniture, including chairs, tables, benches, sofas, armchairs and swings.
The materials most commonly used for producing garden furniture are wood, metal and rattan.
Wooden furniture is understandably popular, as it has a nice look and feel; metal furniture – usually cast aluminium – is easy to clean and excels in terms of durability; rattan furniture – made from woven vines – is stain-resistant and simple to repair.
Choosing the right garden furniture:
When choosing garden furniture, it’s important to consider both the available space, and the style you prefer. You should ensure the furniture you opt for is weatherproof, and that it’s in harmony with your home and garden.
If you have a modern garden, metal or plastic furniture will suit. If your garden’s more traditional, you’ll likely want to go for wooden furniture.
It’s also important to consider the size of your garden:
If you have a bijou garden, you should choose furniture that won’t overload the space.
If you have a sizeable garden, furniture that’s more substantial becomes an option.
When arranging garden furniture, it’s recommended you create distinct areas for eating, relaxing and entertaining. It’s also essential to think about making the most of the view, and to ensure you get the best of the summer sun as it moves across.
How best to decorate your garden:
Creating a relaxed atmosphere at your Coronation garden party will put your guests at ease and ensure the event will be enjoyed by all involved. To achieve that chilled-out feel, you’ll want to choose the correct decoration.
For this, we suggest natural, calming colours, such as green and beige.
You could also add decorative elements such as light garlands or lanterns, which will create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Finally, don’t forget to introduce comfortable seating – perhaps loungers or cushions – to allow your guests to relax and enjoy the garden to the full.
When it comes to horticultural decoration, you can choose plants and flowers that will create a natural, pastoral atmosphere.
Climbing plants such as roses or clematis will bring life to otherwise drab walls and fences; fragrant plants like hydrangea and lavender will enhance the area with their delightful scent.
Follow some – or all – of these tips, and we’re sure your Coronation garden party will go down a storm!
