Are you fond of going to outdoor parties? Or are you the one who usually hosts one?

 

Outdoor entertaining presents the opportunity to create an outdoor setting to impress one’s guests and to set the perfect backdrop for a memorable day. The right outdoor furniture and party theme can surely make your gathering even more unforgettable – one for the books!

 

Here are some great ideas you can use for your next outdoor gathering:

 

Vintage Settings

From 1920s glamour to 1940s attitude, those eras of days gone by can be your ideal inspiration for your next outdoor party theme. You can transform your outdoor lounge setting into an environment that’s right out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel with period table settings, outdoor furniture, and appropriate décor. You can also embellish your outdoor setting with a few antique pieces from your chosen decade and of course, have your guests dress the part! Old-fashioned parlour games and other backyard classics such as badminton or croquet will surely get everyone hyped up and taken back into time.

 

Garden Tea Party

If you are entertaining during the day, a garden tea party is always a fun choice. Wicker outdoor furniture, blooming flowers, and an elegant table setting are all you need to pull this theme off. You have the option to be as chic or as traditional as you wish with your choice of napkins, table cloth, and other outdoor accessories!

 

Tropical Delight

This theme is ideal for both daytime or early evening and it can really lift the mood of partygoers of all ages. Think tropical flower accents, bright colors, tiki torches, Hula grass table skirts, and a surfboard or two to help create a fun and festive environment! You should also serve roasted pork, tropical fruit salad, and other exotic island-inspired food on an extension table big enough to accommodate all guests.

 

Nautical

Who doesn’t love a breezy day at the ocean? This theme also works even if you do not live by the sea! Think candle bases, elegant centerpieces, and napkin holders accented with starfish, shells and sand dollars. Colors such as teal, aqua, and seafoam are perfect for decorating your outdoor setting with a captain’s wheel, model boats, and anchor imagery. As for the menu, serve a lobster boil or clam bake with sides like artisan salads and cornbread to delight your guests’ palettes!

 

Outdoor entertaining is certainly one of the great pleasures in life. From simple daytime gatherings to al fresco dinners to late night soirees, there are endless ideas and opportunities to come up with fun and festive settings.
