How to Create a Space Worthy of Entertaining This Spring
As the weather heats up, so do our social lives! The warmer weather and longer days mean that it's the perfect time to entertain friends and family outside. Creating a desirable space outdoors doesn't have to be hard work. We've got some great ideas to help you create a space worth of entertaining this spring!
Making sure that all of your guests are comfortable is one of the important responsibilities as a host.
Ensure there are plenty of cushions to prop people up and consider the temperature. While the spring days are often lovely, the nights can still have a chill. Create a little warmth as well as the atmosphere with a fire pit, as well as having a few blankets or throws around – but make sure these don't get too close to the fire!
If you are entertaining during the day and the sun is heating up, it's a good idea to have sunscreen on hand. You may also consider an outdoor umbrella; these are also handy for summer.
It's called entertaining for a reason, and it's important to add a little bit of fun and adventure to the evening! This shouldn't require too much effort either, add some music in the background – consider a playlist that encourages nostalgia or takes your guests back to a specific time.
You could also play a game. Large-scale Jenga pieces can live outside for a fun game that everyone can get involved with. You could even create your own pieces – there is heaps of online inspo.
Adding a few simple touches to your entertaining space can make all the difference. The right use of candles, fresh flowers or scatter cushions on a bench along with a string of lanterns can create an entirely new outdoor space. These small details will enhance the overall appeal without your guests even realising it!
