Summertime is the season for spending hours lazily lounging and socializing outside with friends and family. Warm temperatures and long light encourage conversations and cocktails porch-side. From a fresh patio set to glamorous garden accessories, there are endless options for adding fresh ambiance to your yard and outdoor spaces.
If you are seeking to bring excitement and energy to your outdoor nook, here are some especially relevant tips and tricks for creating the ultimate oasis fit for endless outdoor entertaining.
Outdoor Dining and Entertaining
A covered patio gets a burst of yellow with a bright tablecloth and painted ceiling. While adding recessed lighting, a built-in television and candle lanterns can provide enough illumination for most starlit parties. A wrought iron patio table is perfect for hosting dinner feasts and BBQ bashes. In addition, a lovely patio set works just as well for hosting an outdoor ladies lunch as it does a fun-filled birthday bash. Find the ideal patio dining set for sunny celebrating at LuxeDecor.
Create a relaxing and Zen-ified backyard space with a plush chaise lounge, ottomans and sofa seating. Ideal for casual get-togethers and mid-day naps, this inviting, serene space almost feels like a destination resort. Adding a fire pit, globe lighting fixture and dim lanterns creates even more tranquil and subdued energy. As a result it is perfect for outdoor entertaining. As much as we know you enjoy company, you should also feel free to skip the guests and enjoy the quietude yourself.
A garden-rich patio is most of all full of plant life and fruit trees. Outfitted with a wicker patio set with bright red pillows, this outdoor area is ideal for small soirees. Most importantly, add charm and character with lots of pottery, decorative toss pillows and metal lanterns. You can find a wide selection of rustic and modern lanterns ideal for festive lighting at LuxeDecor.
Plain and simple backyards can be so boring. Forgo the ordinary. Turn the patio into a giant rec room. A bamboo bar, hammock and sofa seating give this unique space plenty of places for guests to mix and mingle. Potted plants, hanging art and candle torches provide fun finishing touches. Consequently, all of the details combine together to create a festive party vibe.
A simple deck gets extra flair as a result of adding a few funky decorative pieces. Crisscrossed oars add nautical vibes while a hammock and a few patio chairs offer a place for guests to sit and enjoy grilled edibles. Definitely add a large umbrella to provide good shade and keep this pleasing patio from being drenched in heat. Additionally, an umbrella adds a pop of color and extra height to your outdoor space.
And most importantly, party pretty, party safe and as always …
