Do you love hosting parties and gatherings during the summer? On those breezy sunny days, family and friends love to get together and soak in the sun. From pool parties in the day to lounging in the evening, there’s plenty to do.
As the host, we all want the best for your guests to ensure they enjoy themselves. Here's the top items for you to carry out that perfect outdoor party that will impress your guests this summer!
1] COMFY SEATING
Comfy and lounge-y seating are an obvious essential. It will be a great location for loved-ones to gather and catch up. For seats with cushions and wood, place them under shelter to make it last a long time or cover them with waterproof protector to prevent mould, rotting and any other weather wear and tear.
2] CUSHIONS & STOOLS
Adding cushions for additional comfort is a great idea. You can bring out your existing cushions or if you are worried about it getting dirty outdoors, you can get some inexpensive outdoor cushions and store them in a basket when not in use.
We can all agree that one of the worst thing as a guest is not having a seat. Hovering around awkwardly will definitely prevent your guest from getting comfortable. So additional stools should always be available. A stool that doubles up as a side table looks great anyway.
3] REFRESHING DRINKS
Nothing is more refreshing than a cold glass of fruit-infused water! Create your own concoction is a fancy glass beverage jar and elevate your gathering from a simple get-together to a classy backyard party.
4] KEEP COOL WITH A COOLER
On those hot days, you don’t want your beer to get warm, that will be a disaster! An essential for any party in the summer is an awesome cooler for all those drinks. Keep that cooler on your patio and you won't have to worry about people going into your home to get their drinks. Step up a notch and get one with wheels and a bottle cap opener for convenience.
5] SMALL BITES AND MUNCHIES
Display a fuss-free food platter using a large cheeseboard. No matter how you arrange it, it will still look classy and insta-worthy. A cheeseboard can be used to display any type of finger food and even sweets! Have you heard of a dessert board? It's all the rage right now!
6] SERVE LIKE A STAYCATION
Want a relaxing staycation style party? Create a Bali Villa style patio with rattan or inlay serving trays. Look at these beautiful illusion basket weave accessories (made of cement) and shell inlay handicraft that gives off a villa vibe and is completely functional outdoors.
7] COSY AMBIENCE
Lighting is key, whether indoors or outdoor. Create a cosy atmosphere with fairy lights or take it up a notch and display scented candles. Tiny tealight candle can also bring out the cosiness of the cool night.
8] GO BAREFOOT
9] DECORATE TO BRING THE PARTY TO LIFE!
Small decor and styling instantly makes a boring vibe to a lively one. If displaying outdoor, try to get waterproof decor so you wouldn't need to bring it in during harsh weather, Think of cement, stone, glass, ceramic, terracota... these materials can brave any weather in Singapore.
