Spring and summer are the perfect times to embrace outdoor living spaces. And what better way to make the most of your space than hosting an outdoor party? Creating the perfect outdoor party space may seem daunting, but with a little effort and inspiration, you can turn your outdoor living space into the ultimate party hub. In this blog post, we’ll be sharing our top tips for creating a festive, comfortable and welcoming outdoor party space that you and your guests will enjoy.
Choose the right furniture
Your outdoor party space should be designed with comfort and function in mind. This is where choosing the right furniture comes in to play. Opt for comfortable outdoor furniture with plenty of seating capacity, tables, and chairs. Consider the style of furniture that you are drawn to- classic wrought iron or modern wood pieces could add extra character to your outdoor living space. You can even bring indoor furniture pieces outside with the help of weather-resistant covers and cushions.
Have ample lighting
Having ample lighting is key to creating a welcoming atmosphere in your outdoor party space. You can use string lights, lanterns, solar lights, and even candles to light up your outdoor space. If you have a pool or any water features in your space, lights can be placed underwater to create a beautiful, ambient effect.
Add greenery and flowers
Nothing adds life to an outdoor party space like beautiful greenery and flowers. Choose plants that are easy to care for and can survive in the outdoor environment. You can also opt to have potted plants to add to the airy feel of your outdoor space. For outdoor tables, pretty flower arrangements can be composed on any budget, whether it’s store-bought or hand-picked from your garden.
Incorporate weatherproof decorative elements
Outdoor entertaining means accommodating nature’s random changes. To avoid having to move anything indoors during a sudden rain shower, choose weatherproof accessories and decor elements that will hold up over time. The use of outdoor pillows, cushions, and rugs is essential to the comfort and look of your outdoor living area. You can also use weather-resistant wall hangings or sculptures to add personal flair to your outdoor living space.
Set the table
No outdoor party space is complete without a well-designed table. The possibilities are endless – you can go for a classic look with crisp table linens and place settings or mix it up with colorful and patterned tablecloths and personalized napkins. Use charger plates, placemats or any other decorative element of your choice. Dress up each place setting with fun cocktail napkins and unique place cards to add some imagination to the atmosphere.
The perfect outdoor party space is the ideal place to entertain family and friends. By following the tips above, you’ll be able to create a stylish, functional and welcoming outdoor living space to enjoy time and time again. Keep in mind that outdoor entertaining doesn’t have to cost a lot of money- small changes like adding pillows or string lights can make a huge difference and enhance your outdoor space. Happy entertaining!
