Start the Summer Party With the Right Outdoor Décor
It’s hard to resist the invitation of summertime to take the party outside. Long days, warm temps and soft breezes make it impossible not to call up friends and fire up the grill. Now just set the mood with outdoor décor and get ready for a smashing soiree.
The trend right now in outdoor patio furniture is all about comfort. Plush, lounge-worthy seating sets make for an inviting place to enjoy a summer evening with friends.
Have a Seat
When the party calls for versatility in stylish seating options with a tropical flair, try adding a collection of vibrant colored pouf chairs to your outdoor decor. You can move your seating around to suit the size of your gathering and make sure everyone has a place to sit.
Outdoor décor is pulling double duty when it adds style while serving up practicality, and outdoor throw pillows earn extra points in this department. Choose a bunch in a beautiful array of colors and patterns and you instantly have a decorated outdoor space that invites your guests to get cozy.
Light the Night
When the sun goes down, the party is often just getting started. Hang decorative lanterns or place them on tables to add ambiance and light to the gathering. Mount solar outdoor lights on deck railings or along walkways and stairs so that when guests leave in the dark they won’t be struggling to see their way.
Open Up the Bar
Why leave the house for the neighborhood bar when you can tend your own party right in your own backyard? Set up an outdoor bar on the patio and mix up a pitcher of your favorite beverages, then invite friends and spend the evening al fresco.
Treat Your Feet
Add an outdoor rug to the conversation area on you patio or deck and you instantly raise the bar on decor. It invites guests to slip off those sandals and enjoy a little pampering while you take in the great outdoors.
Porches and patios may not be the wilds of the further reaches of your backyard, but they still can use a little greenery to set the tone of the season. Add a manicured boxwood topiary for a formal look, or fill a planter with an array of local blooms for a more casual look.
