Sunny season has returned, and everyone is gearing up for one of the most explosively rewarding periods of partying following lockdown. A lot of people are busy fixing up their backyards into a place worthy of such cathartic revelry, and if you are looking for some inspiration (or even how to even begin flipping your backyard), you have come to the right place!
Now, this might seem like an obvious one to many, but an aesthetically laid out collection of scented candles goes a long way toward setting an inviting and cozy ambiance. Even if you plan on cutting loose and having a wild evening with friends long missed, candles are a perfect alternative to harsh floodlights.
Sprucing Up The Greenery
If the vegetation in your backyard is looking a bit neglected, you can quickly upcycle a lot of “junk” lying around the place into sensational planters. From busted tires to empty food containers, there really is no limit to what can be turned into an attractive home for flowers or shrubs.
If you want to go with extra mile, try painting the planters’ containers with some funky colors to really help set the festive mood better!
Distributing Your Guests
Unless you plan on keeping your party intimate, you will want to make sure that your attendees have at least a few different areas to chill out in. No one wants to feel clumped in with people they feel a bit awkward with.
You don’t need to go out and to buy a whole lot of new garden chairs. Bust out the old blankets, throws, and pillows and arrange them in different spots around your lawn. Still, if you do have some furniture to spare, bring it out for those who dislike sitting on the ground.
A summer party is never complete without a gooey serving of smores! Smores are also very quick and affordable to produce, instead of going out of your way to bake a series of cakes or cookies.
Just set up a more station with a few plates of cookies, a roaring skillet filled with melted chocolate and marshmallows, and watch as your guests delight in serving themselves some overloaded more goodness.
Backyard Feature Presentation
Nothing wows your guests more than having your own personal backyard theater. The first thing you will need is a projector, and if you don’t have one, you will need around $100 to get a decent one. You can then erect a simple screen with an old sheet and some bamboo or thin logs. Decorate the frame with some fairy lights and make sure to have enough comfortable seating for your audience. Voila, you are entertaining in style!
Cocktails All Night
Cocktails are essential for any warm evening shebang. With all the summer fruits to select from, you really will not be pressed for options. Just get a few bottles of your favorite booze and mix and your guests can easily help themselves to some fruity refreshments.
