Everybody wants the perfect, scenic outdoor home setting for summer parties. Whether you’re barbecuing, entertaining the neighbors, or hosting your child’s birthday party, you may want the same kind of eye-grabbing backyard/patio scenery that you see in Hollywood films. Having the ideal outdoor party setting that really pops doesn’t have to be a massive chore or cost to your family. In fact, with these tips, you can get the dreamy summer setup you’ve always wanted.
- Reuse and Upcycle
This time of year it can be tempting to go out and buy new lawn furniture and ornaments. The stores bring out all kinds of new products just as you’re finishing your Spring cleaning, tempting you with sales and new items that are like a dangling carrot that just leads to a cluttered garage.
Instead of opening up your wallet, open up the storage in your home to find old items that can liven up the scene in your backyard. Old trash cans and other containers make for unique flower beds, and those Christmas lights don’t have to stay tucked away 11 months out of the year. A little light goes a long way to make your nighttime landscape into a dreamy escape from the indoors.
- Make Color a Running Theme
Nothing excites the eye like the summer sun bouncing off of a well-arranged outdoor color scheme. Choose colors that demand attention, but don’t go overboard. A palette of three or fourcolors will bring a dynamic energy to your lawn chairs, deck and/or decorations.
