Make Awesome ‘Backyard Memories’ This Summer

Happy family having lunch together at table in backyard

Before the summer ends, you must have made several awesome memories! The warmer months do not come every so often – make sure you do not sit this one out! If you are having some troubles finding things to do right at your own backyard, we have rounded up some awesome ideas for you to consider:

A wine-and-cheese-night never goes  out of style.

Dine alfresco style with your family and friends – go all out on wine and cheese (some crackers will do, too!). Who says you can only have this experience in fine-dining restaurants? When you have your own backyard, sky’s the limit! You can purchase several bottles of wine and have your guests bring in the cheese and crackers. If you have some children, you can buy bottles of grape juice and plastic wine glasses. This is a great way to involve them in this gathering without risking having broken wine glasses!

 

An outdoor movie night is also a great idea!

If you and your family or friends are movie buffs, then you might want to take your film-watching to the next level: under the stars! Fortunately, there are available projectors that you can either rent or purchase. Some projectors can even be easily hooked up to smart phones – making this experience hassle-free! You can simply set up some of your outdoor furniture to have a makeshift outdoor theater. To make things more comfortable for the young ones, get those blankets out and set them on the ground. For grandmas and grandpas, it is best to have them sit comfortable on chaise lounges – don’t forget to provide some pillows and blankets for them, too, in case they fall asleep!

 

A bonfire on a summer night – why not?

Though the days are warmer, the nights can still get a little cold – why not setup a bonfire for you and your loved ones to enjoy? Instead of driving to a campsite, you can make your very own right at your backyard! You can prepare some marshmallows and hotdogs for the kids to cook over the fire. You can also have a guitar ready in case your guests would like to sing-along to some favorite tunes. Don’t forget to have refreshments for everyone to enjoy!

 

Don’t forget to take photos!
