Summer is all about living easy and entertaining guests. Here are a few simple tips to make entertaining your guests a summer breeze!
Rather than placing regular beverage bottles on your dining table, add some décor to them! Wrap any type of beverage bottle with patterned paper and secure it with double-sided tape. Use scraps of gift wrap or wallpaper that match the colour scheme of your event.
Instead of worrying about mixing the perfect drink, create exciting summer beverages using one ingredient. Look through magazines or online sites such as Pinterest to find an easy and refreshing summer drink recipe you would want to serve at your outdoor event. You can match it with your theme, or serve something you think everyone will like. Add a tiny décor piece to the glass, and you’re ready to go!
Let the games begin! There is no better solution to those early guest arrivals or that post-lunch slump than a collection of no-skills-required lawn games. Rather than having your guests sitting around, get them to participate in outdoor activities. This will get everyone involved and add some fun to your get together! It is also a great ice breaker for any guests who may not know each other.
If your event is later in the day and will still be going on after the sun goes down, add some string lighting to impress your guests! This is as simple as pulling out those Christmas lights or purchasing some string lights and wrapping them around various items in your backyard such as lamp posts, trees, railings or pergola posts. Not only is this an efficient way of lighting your backyard once it gets dark, it also creates the perfect summer atmosphere!
Most importantly you’ll need your backyard to be summer ready. By adding any of our outdoor products such as our pergolas, railings, or sheds, you can create the perfect atmosphere and impress all your guests! Come visit us at Vision Outdoor Products and make your backyard ready for summer!
