Decorating Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining

Posted on Updated on

When entertaining outdoors, pick a party theme or style just before contemplating decorating ideas. After you have established whether you want to host a stylish garden-inspired party or a rustic country-themed bash, create coordinating decor. For those who have a flower or vegetable garden, make use of the fruits of your labor to include a fresh, summery flair towards the party space.
Decorating Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining
Inspired Lighting

Infuse the outdoor party space having a warm glow, which will create instant ambiance. Choose lighting elements with respect to the party theme and style. For any tropical-inspired soiree, display vibrant orange and yellow faux flower or seashell string lights through the space; wrap them around railings, tree trunks or table legs. When the outdoor party has an artsy, bohemian vibe, suspend vibrantly hued Chinese paper lanterns from branches and porch rafters. Enhance picnic tables with natural herbal candles, that will smell fresh and keep bugs away. If you’re hosting a summer pool party, allow floating ball-shaped lights to skim over the top of the pool.

Natural Candle Centerpieces

Have a cue from the party location, and celebrate outside with nature-inspired centerpieces. For an exotic look, cover a wooden tray with palm fronds or other green leaves, and top all of them with bamboo candles. Other candle options include essential-oil enhanced soy and charming beeswax versions. Get creative by wrapping assorted green plant and tree leaves around simple glass votive holders; secure the leaves with bits of rustic twine. If the party happens in autumn, use harvest-hued leaves instead.

Garden Gear

Enhance an outdoor party table with fresh, garden-inspired decor items. Fill a vibrantly hued water can with fresh-picked daisies and tulips. Suspend flower-filled tin buckets from wooden posts with grosgrain ribbons to attain a country style. For a centerpiece that’s a feast for the eyes around the mouth, display brightly frosted sunflower-inspired cupcakes on the tiered stand in the middle of the table; instruct each guest to consider one on their way out.
