It’s a fascination. It’s a hobby. It’s a party theme. However you view the sky above us, it’s worth looking at again. Even better, share the experience – and arrange a cosy, out-of-the-ordinary gathering.
Make space for activities
With a get-together centred around different activities, it’s a good idea to divide the room into separate stations. Easy-to-move furniture makes the space even more flexible.
Setting a date with clear skies
The best stargazing nights are likely found with lunar calendar and star map in hand. They also make one person’s special interest more accessible – and visible – to others. (Cross your fingers for a cloud-free night.)
It’s all in the details
Let decorations heighten the moment. Moon art and string stars work for one night only, or leave them for longer.
Let the moon set the mood
When a dinner isn’t the required centre of attention, a free-flowing (extra easy with wheeled furniture) lounge-style arrangement can offer a cosy corner for everyone.
Clusters and constellations in LED
The stars in the sky may not be at your command, but the ones inside are truly at your fingertips. Lighting chains work just as well to set the mood as to make displays that mimic the sky above.
