We’ve been in the business for many, many years, and we know what it takes to wow your party guests – and maybe even make them a little envious!
Clean up your patio.
Take the time to clean off any of your patio furniture and decor. After being packed away for the winter, dirt and cobwebs are sure to have gathered. A quick wash is all that it takes, and it really makes all the difference.
If you have a wooden deck and/or fence, you might want to take a weekend to restain and seal the deck if it has faded substantially over the year. It might seem daunting, but just doing it once can last several years (depending on the kind of stain you use).
Add some flair.
We know that even the smallest details can make the biggest difference when it comes to parties. While you don’t need to have an all-out theme, your regular yard decor can change the feel entirely. Add in some outdoor lighting, whether it’s string lights or all-weather garden torches. You can even set up a firepit for your guests to gather around for a little something extra!
Create some accents with pops of color, too! Decorate your outdoor seating with colorful pillows, and make the dinnerware as bright as the season itself. You may also take advantage of plant containers! Planting some spring and summer flowers is an easy way to add some additional color and life to your patio.
There are so many simple ways to get your yard ready for those long-awaited evening barbecues with your friends and family.
