Is this the summer you want to turn your outdoor space into the place everyone wants to be? We can tell you how to create an environment that will impress and entertain, in this month’s Yard Envy.
So, what’s the secret for outstanding outdoor entertaining? We could go on all season, but instead we narrowed it down to the top three essentials for the perfect outdoor destination for summer fun.
Be Creative with Different Seating Options
A great seating arrangement can transform the feel and flow of your outdoor space. Giving guests the choice of where to sit will not only make them more comfortable, but it will open the door to them sitting by who they choose to. That means more conversation, more good times and a gathering that suits everyone! Don’t know where to start? Here are some great ways to change-up your sit-downs:
- Create the perfect flow by having separate lounging areas with seating and places for guests to easily set down their food or drinks.
- Make it comfortable! Everyone likes a pleasant place to sit; outdoor couches and other furniture are a great addition to any outdoor space, and they are becoming more popular and affordable each year.
Atmosphere is Everything
Even the best party can be brought down by a dull backdrop. When you think of summer, you think of bright colors, green grass and tiki torches. Ok, maybe that’s a little specific, but you can see where we’re going! Bring the summer spirit into your patio or yard with some of these fun extras:
- Flowers and Greenery
- Painted Flower Pots
- Tiki Torches or Fire Pits
- String Lights
- Summer Themed Serveware
- Decorative Lanterns
- Beach Balls
It’s All About Variety
We won’t ask you to plan a special performance or hire flame throwers just for a barbecue, but providing some extra things for guests to do is the perfect way to please a group of people. Whether it’s variety in what you serve, different games or places to chat, you’ll have a stress free night of entertaining. Here are some likable idea’s to liven up your next gathering:
- Roast Marshmallows or Make S’mores
- Ice Cream Sundae Bar
- Snow Cone Station
- Giant Jenga
- Bag Toss
- Lawn Twister
Now you’re pretty much set to have the best summer ever. Need any help making your yard look 5 star? Give us a call- we would love to work with you!
