Summer is here and it is time to finally show off your newly remodeled backyard. Nothing beats spending the evening entertaining friends and family in your beautiful backyard. While in the past backyard dining meant bringing out a cooler, paper plates, and plastic forks, modern design has made it possible to have a mini kitchen in your backyard. Consider incorporating these helpful summer entertaining tips in your backyard party plans to have an unforgettable evening:
§ First, consider where guests will converse and where they will eat. Set the table properly if you have enough table room for all of your guests to be seated. You can also take out quilts for guests to dine “picnic-style.”
§ Refrain from using paper napkins unless they are for cocktails. Whenever you are serving food, you should use cloth napkins. Consider rolling up silverware in various colored cloth napkins and putting them in inviting containers such as mason jars.
§ The best centerpieces are ones that are fresh and natural. If you don’t want to choose a flower arrangement, simply put colorful fruits and veggies out in a bowl. If you want to show off your newly bloomed flowers for all your guests to see, put some freshly picked flowers in mason jars as centerpieces.
§ Choose your menu wisely for outdoor conditions and think about where you will display the food. Consider food that is less messy and won’t spoil in the heat. Small pass around appetizers work best in extreme temperatures.
§ Consider where your guests will relax if the heat proves too scorching. Will you have an area inside available for guests to converse or will you simply provided a shaded area?
