Must-Haves to Make the Perfect Backyard for Entertaining




Summer is the time to enjoy your outdoor space, whether this means just sitting outside with a good book or throwing the best party of the summer. If throwing the best summer party is on your to do list this year, we have listed the must haves to make your backyard ideal for entertaining.

Outdoor Weather-Friendly Speakers
Music is a must have when hosting a summer party. However, nothing is more tedious than moving indoor speakers outdoors for the day, only to forget them and destroy them days later after a summer storm arises. If throwing parties with the sounds of summertime ballads in the background is your thing, outdoor speakers are a must have. From high tech speakers hoisted on the walls, or hidden speakers nestled neatly amongst your garden and shaped like rocks, there are many speakers on the market to fit your style. Whatever you choose, we suggest finding one that is completely wireless and runs solely on Bluetooth and solar powered. This will ensure an easy installation and the ability to move the speakers about in any way you desire.

Staying Cool
If you are a daytime entertainer, your biggest qualm will be with the sun’s harmful UV rays. To combat the heat on a hot summer’s day, investing in misting fans will help allow your guests to enjoy your party more and complain about the heat less. Misting fans are affordable, allowing you to purchase multiple fans for your backyard, and can be purchased at your closest Home Depot. With multiple options, such as free-standing or hanging fans, there will be a style to fit your preference.

Light it up!
For those interested in keeping the party going throughout the night, adding soft LED fairy lights to your backyard will set a relaxing vibe while the party winds down. Thankfully, there are plenty of options to choose from that are both reasonably priced and will illuminate your backyard in varying degrees. If you’re looking for a more modern approach, Edison lights are a 2019 lighting trend that can be seen in the hippest outdoor living magazines as a “MUST HAVE.”

S’mores Please!
While your party continues well into the night and the sun is no longer a factor, the cool air might be. Adding a fire pit to your backyard allows you to not only warm your guests, but also creates a relaxing atmosphere. Perfect for all ages, a firepit can be a rustic addition allowing for roasting s’mores over a wood-burning flame or modern with colorful glass crystals amongst a gas-lit artificial flame. No matter what your preference, both serve their own purpose while emitting just enough heat to keep the party going for hours.  

Whether you prefer company during the day or at night, there are plenty of backyard additions that can add the perfect flare to any backyard to make it into an entertaining mecca during the summer.

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services.
