Planning on hosting an al fresco party with friends? Here’s our visual checklist of some of the things you’ll need – in addition to friends, of course.
There’s nothing worse than a garden party with not enough seats – or not enough comfy seats, for that matter. With these curving Canoe couches, your guests may never leave! They’re handcrafted for Veneman Collections in the US and available from Endless Summer Collections in Singapore. Central Mall Showroom, 1 Magazine Road, #B1-01. www.USAMstyle.com
Time to get to the meat of the matter. A successful party requires expertly prepared food, and half the battle is won if you use a top-of-the-line barbecue. Proline has a fully stocked warehouse with big-name gas barbecues like the Masport range. Call 6779 0500 (weekdays 8.30am to 6.00pm) or 9857 2149 (after hours and weekends).
It’s small but it packs a punch. The MS500 by Sony Ericsson is a lightweight outdoor wireless speaker with Bluetooth technology, which means you can use your phone as a remote control. A pair of AA batteries will provide five hours of listening time. It’s splash-proof too, in case the champagne starts flying or someone gets overly exuberant in the pool. Comes in orange and black, or white and pink. Available from leading retailers. www.sonyericsson.com
This being Singapore, it’s either going to be very hot, or it’s going to rain – usually both at the same time. So, for your big outdoor bash, you’ll also need a temporary roof over your heads. These TUUCI umbrellas should do the trick.
TUUCI’s flagship, the Ocean Master, is constructed to withstand all kinds of harsh environments. It’s available in both classic and contemporary designs and a multitude of shapes and colours.
Bali Sun Lounge
A comfortable bed-lounge with fabric cushions, bed coverings and privacy curtains made from high-performance Sunbrella fabric. The Bali is available with or without a valance-style canopy top.
This shade is made from an aluminium marine alloy frame and can be secured directly to a deck or in portable bases to create a temporary or permanent outdoor room.
TUUCI products are available from Endless Summer Collections,
Central Mall Showroom, 1 Magazine Road, #B1-01.
