Burgers on the grill, s’mores around the fire pit, and beverages kept on ice in deep kitchen sinks to make beating the heat easy and refreshing — Summer is just around the bend and some of our favorite seasonal pastimes include good food, cold drinks and spending time with great people. When your backyard has all the furnishings for a fun time, daytime barbeques can linger into late night stargazing without work or worry. Turn your backyard into the perfect space for outdoor entertaining with these tips.
Keep the party going with a cozy fire pit.
Whether you love roasting marshmallows or just want an excuse to stay outside, a fire pit will take your outdoor space to a whole new level. Even warm summer days can get chilly in the evening, which is one time when a fire pit is right on the money. You and your guests will eagerly gather around to share stories and laughs way past your bedtime. With an outdoor fire pit you can also indulge in favorite summer snacks like s’mores and other fire pit recipes, and feel just like you’re on a camping adventure without leaving your neighborhood.
Easily transport items from your kitchen to the backyard with a portable cart.
Stop lugging your kitchen outdoors and get a portable cart that’ll do the work for you. Made of stainless steel, our portable Culinary Prep Kitchen Cart won’t easily weather and makes cleaning up virtually effortless. The top serves as a cutting surface for slicing up limes on the fly or whipping up a quick tomato and avocado salad. You’ll be able to keep everything you need for your outdoor soiree close by with the cart’s top drawer and two lower shelves. The convenient side storage has been designed specifically for holding knives, and the opposite side of this kitchen cart features a rack for hanging a dishrag or cloth. It’s amazing how much you can transport in this cart, and how much easier hosting a backyard get-together will become.
Ready, set, go out and get some games!
Everyone loves a little competition; so add some friendly games to your backyard setup to make every gathering a little more amusing. You could easily build a DIY cornhole toss, or find an inexpensive set online. Another fun game for your backyard is bocce, and again you can DIY a court in a day’s time.
Bring the big screen to your backyard.
Another easy way to entertain guests in the summer and make your backyard a magical place is by setting up an outdoor theatre. They sell TV screens especially made for the outdoors, or if you want to keep your budget low, a movie projector is a less expensive option. You can use the side of your house or garage as a screen and project your favorite films right onto the wall. To set the scene, arrange some chairs or other outdoor furniture, put out some snacks, and enjoy your very own outdoor movie night right in the comfort of your yard.
