Easy Entertaining Ideas

Day or night, planned or spontaneous, entertaining outdoors can be easy and virtually effortless with just a few simple touches. Invite the family over for Mother’s Day or host a Sunday football outdoor watching party. No matter the event, your backyard can be ready for it all!

Lights, camera, party

Lighting is one of the easiest ways to create a mood. Drape outdoor string lights above, place TIKI torches around the perimeter and include citronella candles on counters. These outdoor, durable items are perfect for easy entertaining because they can be left outside throughout the season and put into action in no time.

Multi-player games

Backyard games like horseshoes, cornhole and Jenga are a DIY project away and give your guests an activity to do. Each round takes 10-15 minutes and can be played by multiple people at once. Need another reason to be outside? Host a tournament, and see who comes out on top!

Self-service water station

Don’t underestimate the power of the water station. It’s the best way to allow guests to get their drinks and avoid you running back and forth. Dress it up with infused water or dress it down, the water station will be there ready and waiting for your next event—just add ice.
