Why Should You Consider Entertaining Outside?

Outdoor entertainment has a whole host of benefits for both you and your guests! Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider taking your next party outdoors. 

  • Save money on eating out. If you find yourself spending a lot of money eating at cafes and restaurants with your friends, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a way to save on cash. Simply invite your friends over to your place and have them bring a plate of food each! You’ll still get the warm, family-friendly atmosphere at a fraction of the cost. Plus, you won’t have to worry about driving home if you’d like a glass of wine or 3. 
  • Easier cleanup. If someone spills some food on your carpet inside the house, it’s a lot harder to clean up than it would had it spilled outdoors. Whether your outdoor table and bench seats are on the grass, on a deck, or a patio, you can simply hose everything down to clean up at the end of the day. 
  • Everyone’s mood will be brighter. Being outdoors in the sun and air has been shown to reduce stress and calm the mind. When all your guests feel calm and relaxed outdoors, everyone is guaranteed to have a better time. 
  • Watch the kids with ease. If the kids want to play in the backyard, it can be frustrating leaving the dining room or kitchen every few minutes to check on them. However, when you have an outdoor entertainment area, you can keep an eye on them while having a drink and a chat with your friends.

Appleby & Co’s Tips To Creating An Outdoor Space For All Seasons

To create a space you can enjoy all year round, you’ll need to select furniture and decorations that range in versatility. Here are a few tips to make sure your outdoor space is ready for the climate all year round. 

  • Summer. The summer will be hot, so you’ll probably need some form of shade for you and your guests. Fortunately, most of Appleby & Co’s outdoor round table and chairs come with room to install an umbrella or shade. You’ll also want to invest in some citronella candles to ward off pesky mosquitoes.
  • Autumn. As the weather begins to cool, you’ll want to make sure your guests aren’t feeling the chill. We suggest placing some comfy cushions and a throw rug or two on your outdoor bench and table.
  • Winter. This is the perfect time of the year to utilise a fire pit! Not only will it keep your guests toasty and warm, but the kids will be able to cook marshmallows over the fire. If you’re not a fan of an open flame, consider looking into an electric outdoor heater to keep you warm.
  • Spring. You have an opportunity in spring to create an outdoor entertaining space that is as beautiful and fragrant as it is comfortable. Plant gorgeous flowers such as lavender, hydrangeas, and jasmine around your furniture and enjoy the magic of fresh blooming florals come spring.

4 Fresh Ideas To Create An Incredible Outdoor Area

If you’ve got all of the above and you’re looking for ideas to make your outdoor entertaining space stand out, here are a few creative ideas to designing an outdoor area you’ll never want to leave. 

  • Kids outdoor table and chairs. If you and your friends and family have little ones running around, cater to them with a pint-sized table and chairs. You can even choose a set that seamlessly integrates with your style choices. This lovely acacia wood picnic table would work into almost any outdoor setting.
  • An outdoor bar table and stools. It’s one thing to have an outdoor fridge or cooler box, but it’s another altogether to have an outdoor bar and stools. Whether you’re having a quiet night in or a huge celebration, there’s nothing quite like making a drink from behind a bar. Appleby & Co have this fun, festive bamboo bistro set to turn your outdoor space into an island getaway.
  • Use rugs. While it might not be the obvious first choice of decoration, rugs can tie a space together like no other. Try using one large rug to keep the area chic or a mix-match of rugs for a bohemian atmosphere. We have a lovely round braided area rug guaranteed to integrate into most settings.
  • Bench seating. When considering furniture, forgo the traditional seats and consider looking at an outdoor bench and table. Benches make your outdoor entertainment area seem more friendly and intimate, and this bamboo outdoor table and bench seats would look great in any home.
