Spring is a time to warm up our outside spaces and enjoy entertaining alfresco. Whether you have an intimate city patio, a delightful spacious deck or a simple spot reserved in your backyard garden, simple touches, and a little TLC can transform your special outdoor spot from ordinary to extraordinary.
Combine the Old with New
After you clean up the debris that winter left behind, look around at your outdoor furniture, flowerpots, and decorative accents. All these pieces work together to make your outdoor spot welcoming and comfortable. Give tired furniture a fresh coat of paint and replace broken decorative accents with new ones. This is the perfect time to combine your old outdoor furniture with something new like a fire pit or colorful Adirondack chair.
Tablescapes that Wow
Your outdoor space is an extension of your home so create eye-catching tablescapes that show off your personality and style. Line a longer table with colorful potted spring flowers, or for a smaller table, simply display a vase full of freshly cut flowers as a centerpiece.
Multiple Seating Areas
This one is fun for those who have larger families or entertain many guests. Even though there is a crowd, creating smaller seating areas within a larger space creates an intimate vibe. Mix and match outdoor furniture colors for an eclectic feel that your guests will love!
Reserved For You
Entertaining is enjoyable for sure, but spending private time in your outdoor oasis is also rejuvenating. Create a special corner of your outdoor space where you are comfortable reading a book or enjoying your favorite cocktail. A small table, chair, or outdoor sectional full of soft accent pillows and a candle lantern will create an ambiance reserved just for you.
Spring into a beautiful new outdoor space with small touches that make a big difference.
