Get Your Patio Party-Ready!
Warmer weather has arrived, and along with it one of our favorite times of year: patio season. Celebrate the arrival of longer days and warmer temperatures with an unforgettable patio party. Here are a few tips for getting your space spruced up for the memories to come!
Clean it up.
Your outdoor space was likely neglected during the recent cold, rainy months. Freshen it up by sweeping the debris off your patio area and wiping down all your outdoor furniture. Once your patio area is clean, spruce up your yard by mowing, trimming bushes and adding a few new planters filled with flowers.
Get the lighting right.
If your patio party ends after sundown, enhance the environment by adding some ambient lighting. We love strings of twinkle lights, TIKI torches or lanterns.
Refresh your fabrics.
New fabrics are the easiest way to completely transform your patio with minimal effort. Pick up new pillows and cushions, an outdoor umbrella or an outdoor rug to give the space a fresh look. If the budget is a little tight this year, check out the discount or resale stores to get something that will change up your space without breaking the bank!
Find your sound.
Behind every great patio party is a great soundtrack. Whether you invest in a complete outdoor speaker system or set up a Bluetooth speaker nearby, make sure you have an outlet to play music you know your guests will love.
Protect your refreshments.
Rising temperatures often brings an influx of insects, and they’ll want to go to town on your party spread just as much as your guests. If you live in an area with lots of flies or mosquitoes, consider placing some of your food indoors and keep drinks in covered containers rather than open pitchers.
