KEEP THE PARTY SIMPLE
Instead of firing up the grill or serving a meal, consider keeping the party prep simple for your outdoor gathering. Have a self-serve beverage station, make up cheese, fruit and charcuterie platters beforehand, and use functional lighting like torches and candles.
GET THE COASTAL LOOK
Combine clean, natural elements wtih patterns and textures inspired by the water for an airy and bright coastal style outside. Accesserize with nautical-themed touches and a palette of neutrals and blue to create an inviting space on your deck or patio.
Less is more, so don’t clutter up your table or yard with too many elements. Keep your canvas clean, and let a few showpieces really make a statement. Remember, modern style doesn’t have to be stiff or formal, so make the atmosphere comfortable and inviting.
THROW A FOOTBALL WATCH PARTY IN YOUR BACKYARD
Take your football party outside and watch the game on an outdoor screen in your backyard! Get the space ready by giving the lawn a fresh cut, have plenty of seating and add several torches for lighting. Fire up the grill for burgers or hot dogs, and don't forget the snacks and handheld sweets!
