I love to entertain out on the patio, and even though we have a small space, we take advantage of it. With the warm weather, we can now finally hang out more often out there, yay!
The other day I had the idea to do a games night out on the patio and what can I say, I think we’ll be repeating it lots of times this year because we had a blast.
The idea was to try out the new TIKI Brand tabletop products and they helped ignite the cozy and nice setting for us to have the best family game time ever!!
Here is what I made the “Game Night” special and super fun:
I didn’t take too much time at all preparing these, I grabbed some bread, toasted it and added pink sauce, cheese, turkey, avocado and hard boiled eggs. Derek and the kids loved them because it’s something different than what I usually do so they were excited to grab them. I also made popcorn, we all love it, it’s a classic we never get tired of!
So make a “new-to-you” appetizer, something you usually don’t serve, they will be even more excited during the Games Night!
We don’t have much space as you can see, so we decided to play cards this time. We played Crazy Eights which is a game you can play with any deck of cards. Adrian also wanted to play Poker with the cards and that’s because we’ve been playing at my father-in-law’s lately and he’s got the Poker bug.
Make the games easy peasy, especially if you have little kids, an idea is to grab a basket and place some games in there so everybody can choose and decide within the basket.
LIGHT UP AND WARM UP THE PATIO
The TIKI Brand products we used were Clean Burn Firepieces and Table Torches, they do exactly that, light the area and warm it up! And don’t be scared of them, I was able to turn those on super easily using their own Clean Burn plant-based fuel. It releases less smoke and they last for a long time.
When we were done and we turned them off I was amazed at how dark it got!! If it wasn’t for the light from the Firepieces and torches we wouldn’t be able to play for so long out there!
As you can see, it really doesn’t take much to enjoy your own space even if it’s small. Why wait for guests to come, use the space whenever you feel like it, be a family game night, dinner, get together to tell stories or share reading time!
