Patio party tips.

You need to follow some spring party tips in order to make your party a blast! Hosting the perfect spring party outdoors is fun and easy. It’s a great time to entertain in your backyard and in your patio. All you need is a little creativity and a little planning.

  • Lights
  • Insect Control
  • Seating
  • Food

Lighting is one of the most important factors for an evening spring time party. The days are warming up, but the days are still relatively short, so good lighting will be a must for your party. Spring is perfect for lunchtime or midafternoon parties.

Use string lights

String lights are perfect for decoration; they will enhance the starry spring sky like no other. This is a great lighting source you can use all throughout the spring season in order for you to set the right mood in your patio or in your backyard.

Add tea lights and lanterns

Use tea lights on your outdoor table as decoration and if you use a citronella variety they can double as insect control. Hanging lanterns in your patio or put lanterns all around your backyard to give your space an enchanted look. The outdoor lighting can give more warmth to your party. Just remember to place them on the safe spot or location, especially when children are around.

Go casual with seating

Allow your guest to feel comfortable by providing them different seating options. Outdoor hammocks are a great example of casual seating which can be perfect during the early spring.

If you are having a large group then ask people to bring a chair, just remember to have some spares  in case people forget.

Serve tasty food and cold drinks

Outdoor parties are very enjoyable now, it’s time to think about food and drinks for your party. Ask for help with the food. Remember to plan ahead and have things ready in advance. Get your eskies filled with ice and have your food organised, time to party.
