Nearly 62% of Americans will have a barbecue during Memorial Day Weekend. And between Memorial Day and Labor Day, we will be consuming 818 hot dogs every second!
If you’re ready to kick off party season, you have to spruce up your outdoor patio area first.
Want some decorating ideas? Here are 5 deck decorating ideas to get the party started.
1. Add Lighting
If the sun goes down during your barbecue, does that mean the party is over? That’s where lighting comes in. Add enough lighting so that guests can comfortably see each other at night.
Outdoor string lights are popular and can create the perfect, relaxing ambiance for your deck.
2. Use Pillows
When decorating your outdoor deck, think about how you decorate your indoor living space. You want to create an inviting, comfortable space. You can do this by including outdoor pillows and cushions.
You can also include throws for when the temperature drops at night. If you make your outdoor space comfortable enough, it might even end up being your own little getaway space when you need some me-time.
3. Add a Swing
To make your outdoor deck area fun, add an outdoor porch swing. Swings are a great way for your guests to get cozy and sit out under the stars.
During the day, you can sit out on your porch swing and read while the kids play in the backyard.
4. Have a Fire Pit Table
Want to make your outdoor parties memorable? Have a fire pit set up. A fire pit is a great way for your closest friends and family to gather around and engage in conversation.
Fire pits are great for when the weather is cooler. You can host a smores night or even a cozy movie night around the fire pit.
For the kids, you can set up a camping night such as ones at Patios USA. Gather everyone around the fire pit and tell spooky stories in the comfort of your backyard.
5. Include an Outdoor Umbrella
During the warmer months, you’re going to need some protection from the hot sun. An outdoor umbrella can provide shade for your guests. You can set up an area under the umbrella where ice-cold drinks are served.
6. Have a Focal Point
When decorating your outdoor space, set up a focal point. This can be a large piece of furniture or decor that the eye focuses on.
Also, choose a style that you want your outdoor area to reflect. Whether it’s modern, glam, or boho, choose pieces of furniture that reflect your style.
Another tip is don’t be afraid to use colors. Your outdoor area doesn’t have to look exactly like your indoor decor. You can be more creative and fun when it comes to color choices.
