Backyard Party Ideas in Five Easy Steps
What’s not to love about outdoor gatherings? Natural beauty, lush scenery and warm weather are key ingredients for fun and relaxation, but when you’re entertaining, a backyard that’s decked out definitely helps. Luckily, we have just 5 ways for you to turn up the heat on every outdoor party.
1 | Don't Forget the Firepit
The ultimate party hit, an outdoor firepit will instantly give your guests somewhere to gather. They can warm up and get cozy, enjoy the flaming sights and crackling sounds, and even roast marshmallows if you want to make things s’more exciting. From aluminum firepits with nifty beverage ledges, to contemporary concrete and glass firepits with lava rocks, there are plenty of options to ignite backyard bashes.
2 | Find a Buzzworthy Bar Cart
Almost everyone will agree that an outdoor bar cart is the life of the party. Filled with your favorite refreshments, the coolest cocktails and plenty of craveable munchies, it will be your most trusted soiree sidekick. Best of all, many designs are on wheels, so you can move them throughout the crowd and ensure everyone is waited on. From wicker wonders with shelves and storage trays, to sleek, streamlined selections, there will be a bar cart with your name on it.
3 | Throw Some Umbrella Shade
Sunshine is fine and dandy until somebody gets burned, and you can provide protection for everyone with an outdoor umbrella or 2. Whether you want to keep it simple with designs that feature sturdy powder-coated poles, crank lifts and UV-rated weather-resistant polyester canopies, or if you want to level up with umbrellas that offer Bluetooth speakers and solar-powered LED lighting for the evening, you can go as maximal or minimal as you want.
4 | Raise the Stakes with Pub + Bar Height Sets
There’s something about getting your feet off of the ground that makes drinking and dining even more enticing, so consider an outdoor pub or bar set that will give your guests a lift. You can find tables and stools that are perfect for elevated entertaining, and create a hangout spot everyone will talk about.
5 | Reach Your Sectional Potential
The best way to bring big groups together? An outdoor sectional that can comfortably and stylishly seat multiple people. With numerous designs and configurations to choose from, you can find large and small options that suit your outdoor space. From minimalist modular designs, to sectionals with built-in side tables, you’ll discover a world of irresistible options.
