I love a good garden party. Garden parties are arguably my favourite parties. All of that green makes my heart skip a beat. Weddings in gardens, birthday picnic parties and every other party where you can look up and see big, beautiful trees and dance with your bare feet in the grass. Heaven. 

No Garden Party is complete without the perfect playlist... tones of Paul Simon, Van Morrison and Fleetwood Mac drifting through the air.

Here are 20 of my favourite songs to dance to under the stars... 

  1. Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes - Paul Simon
  2. Everywhere - Fleetwood Mac
  3. Sweet Thing - Van Morrison
  4. Supersonic Rocket Ship - The Kinks
  5. What A Fool Believes - The Doobie Brothers
  6. Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival 
  7. I Know What I Know - Paul Simon
  8. Hey Me, Hey Mama - Ray Lamontagne
  9. Only A Fool Would Say That - Steely Dan
  10. Walk Of Life - Dire Straits
  11. Take It Easy - Jackson Browne, Jack Johnson and John Cruz Cover
  12. We Came Far - Paqua
  13. Do I Ever Cross Your Mind - Chet Atkins and Dolly Parton
  14. Quelqu'un M'a Dit - Carla Bruni
  15. 3 Days - Rhye
  16. Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard - Paul Simon
