Having an Amazing Sunroom or Backyard Party This Summer



Summer is a wonderful time for better living through outdoor gatherings. Warm evenings on your deck or time in your LifeRoom with a light breeze make for a great atmosphere to entertain guests. Planning and preparing for an outdoor garden party takes effort, but with the right approach, it can be a very enjoyable experience for everyone involved. Here are five tips that will make your party the evening event of the summer!

Keep it Cool 

Don't leave a nice cool breeze to chance. If you don't have the LifeRoom Soft-Breeze and Cool-mist system, make sure you have some fans ready to go at your party. Get a few to cover multiple locations, so everyone will be comfortable regardless of where they may be mingling. You don't have to purchase these fans as there are options to rent them that cost effective.

Don't Forget the Linens

It's not really a great idea to just throw your food on some bare tables. Spend a little time thinking about what colors and fabric you'd like and make sure you get something that will be durable and look wonderful. Depending upon how often you want to throw parties, you may consider purchasing more reusable linens.

The Menu is Important

You don't have to offer a four course dinner, but what you plan to serve is most definitely important. People expect to have something to nibble on at a party. Finger foods are good for outdoor summer parties, with lighter and varied menu options.


Enclosed Beverage Dispensers

If you're serving punch or another beverage that is not in its own container, an enclosed container with a spout is most definitely the best idea. At an outdoor summer party, insects can be a concern. Getting an enclosed container to hold you beverage with a spout allows for a much more sanitary drinking experience.

Soft Music is Best

There is a time and place for everything. A summer outdoor party where people will be visiting and mingling is not the time for loud and heavy music. Music breaks the silence and it helps add to the atmosphere, but it would be best served in a softer and more background capacity. Plan this ahead of time and make sure you create a playlist for your party or use HGTV's suggested playlists.

Define the Entry

People need to know where to go once they arrive. Don't make it unclear where they need to go as this will make your guests uncomfortable. Signs posted telling them where to go and how to get there is very important. Make sure if it is dark that there is plenty of lighting for the path to the party. This small home improvement addition will also make your property look amazing. Real Simple also suggests making sure there's ample lighting in your party area as well.



These five simple ideas should make your  party the hit of the summer. They will reduce stress for the organizer and provide a great and relaxing experience for your guests. We know you love home and through the right type of outdoor event this summer, your guests will love it too!

Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola

Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.
There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use.
