Tips For Creating An Amazing Outdoor Party Space!
OUTDOOR PARTIES can be easy and enjoyable when you are prepared and have a great plan. At Party Bluprints we are sure of this, and when it comes to outdoor parties it’s essential to create a footprint for entertaining. A footprint is unique to you and when creating it you need to factor in your own personal style, budget and space constraints.
GET READY! Here are the tips and tools you will need to build your own personal footprint for your party. There is no place like HOME for Outdoor Entertaining!
First, think about your space, everyone’s is different. If you live in a big city, your outdoor space may consist of a terrace balcony. If you live in a rural area, you may have many acres to party on! Both situations present their own challenges and we are here to help.
SMALL SPACE: When space is an issue, stick to the basics. Buy a great table and chairs and don’t clutter the space with lots of extras. A round table works best in small spaces because you can fit more chairs, therefore guests at your table. If you live in the concrete jungle, think about bringing nature to your party scene with potted or hanging plants, or maybe a potted tree if you have the room. String up little white lights, they work great against the backdrop of a dark sky and create a vacation vibe for the evening! If you are incorporating cushions or pillows, go monochromatic and stick with solids so you don’t overwhelm the space.
LARGE SPACE: If you have lots of outdoor space, guests may wander. You need to create a party perimeter. This will keep guests together, encourage conversation, increase the energy level, and overall create better party vibe. Use planters, potted plants or flowers to decorate and outline the footprint of you party space. You can also achieve this with lanterns, lumieres and torches – which are also perfect for setting the scene at night. Bring fun to your space with bright colors and fun patterns on cushions, umbrellas and pillows. With lots of room you can create tented areas, they define your space and create shaded areas for guest to enjoy.
