People. Get together a random mix of your friends. Make worlds collide, but give people a sense of familiarity. The single most important ingredient for a grand party.
Vibe. Flames, music, scents. Whatever it is that gives you the atmosphere that you are after. Make it unique, and give it a buzz. Think candles and jazz, or fairy lights and guitar. Get creative.
Food. Think communal. A massive nachos plate. Make your own spring roll.share the barbecuing love, have an open fore that people can grill their own treats on. Always have generous food.
Comfort. When people are comfortable they are happier. Have adequate seating. Set up lounges and other outdoor furniture.
