Transforming Your Yard into a Great Party Space

Share This Post

Every year in the summer, my neighbor’s throw a big backyard bash.  It is always lots of fun and they seem to have every detail covered.  And while they don’t have a big elaborate yard, the space they have is always transformed into an inviting and exciting party space. I asked them what their secret is and they said that with a little planning and some creative ideas, you can make the most of the space you have to plan a great event.

I did a little research on my own and found lots of great ideas to transform your yard into a unique space for entertaining. A great outdoor party doesn’t have to be costly, with a little innovative thinking and an average budget – your yard can turn into a hot spot for entertaining.

According to it’s quite easy to set the scene. “No matter how small your outdoor space – you can make it pop with paper lanterns, table linens and fresh flowers in colorful shades. Set up a beverage station so guests can help themselves and add cushions or pillows to chairs; comfortable furniture will invite guests to sit a spell.”

If you are having a large crowd, renting tables and chairs can add some much needed dining space. Add some colorful linens and attractive table arrangements to create a charming setting. If you are unsure of the weather forecast, an outdoor tent can be smart choice for any outdoor party.  It can create shade and a cool area to sit on a very sunny day as well as protection from any rain.  It also keeps the party in a central location.  Many vendors also offer affordable packages that include tables and chairs along with a tent.

Lighting is another easy (and often overlooked) way to really accent your party. A designer from Home and Gardens magazine adds, “If your get-together will continue into the evening, illuminate the party area with strings of lights encircling an umbrella, wound around tree trunks or run along cables suspended above partygoers’ heads. Candle-filled or solar lanterns, placed on tables and at patio edges, are great alternatives if your home doesn’t have outdoor electrical outlets.” If you are renting a tent, many tents are often equipped with lighting as well.

Keep coolers stocked with cold drinks and allow guests to help themselves to appetizers and easy finger foods. A relaxed atmosphere is always much more fun than a stuffy and formal setting. Turn on some great music and watch your party really get started. It’s all about easy entertaining and fun!
