The official start of summer is only weeks away! Have you started thinking about how you’ll impress your guests in the backyard? Cleaning and updating your outdoor space will get you on the path to successful party hosting in this summer. It will also leave your guests admiring the work you’ve put in to revamping the yard. The following are quick tips to getting your backyard ready for grilling season.
Tables and Chairs
Patio furniture is a backyard must if you have people over often. If your furniture has gone through a long cold season, you need to make sure that it is now suitable for guests to use. Giving your furniture a makeover can mean something as simple as a spray down with some cleaner. This should bring your tables and chairs back to life. The only time you should consider repainting is if you notice rust on metal furniture.
Host your next party in style! Adding a backyard bar is a great addition. You will appreciate the convenience having a place to keep your beverages chilled outside for you and your guests.
Once the sun goes down, what sources of light will you use to keep the party going? Try to avoid using light directly from your porch, as this tends to attract bugs inside of the house. Instead, incorporate torch lights, hanging lights or lanterns that aren’t positioned close to your home. Consider highlighting areas of the backyard that you would like guests to admire.
Don’t forget the basics! To host backyard BBQs, you need to have the right equipment standing by to cook and serve. In addition to dusting off your grill, count your serving ware and paper products, so that you can replenish anything you need to prior to the party.
