The Big Plan
You might not be a person who is used to planning a big event, but the desire to throw a great patio party can be a big responsibility. Prepare a party checklist before you begin to make sure that you’ll have everything you need and stay on budget.
Get It Together
Get started with pre-organizing tasks by getting rid of the clutter both inside and outside of your house. Clean the pool, mow the garden, clean the bathroom, lay down rugs for people making trips inside, and make sure that everything is in an ideal space.
A patio theme party needs to be more than just great barbecue setting and big green plant urns. Try out something closer to your heart. For instance you can add a little drama to your space by adding outdoor fire pits or can try out paper decorations for a great summer patio party.
Choose a Theme
Nothing works better than a well thought themed patio party for sure. Choose a color theme, a special outfit theme, beach theme or cocktail theme to add more drama and fun elements to your party.
Choose Comfortable Furniture
Patio parties are all about relaxing and having fun, so one must not forget to choose the right outdoor furniture. Comfortable chairs, sofas or a collection of
decorative floor pillows would play a major role in giving your guests the time of their lives.
Plan the Menu
A patio party would seem incomplete without a grill, barbeque, or cooking space, so don’t forget to install one. Also be sure to fill up a large cooler with ice so that your guests can help themselves in serving cool beverages of their choice. Choose the menu wisely and add a few deserts in order to increase the variety of food.
Patio parties are generally about relaxing and having a good time and drinks and beverages play a major role in ensuring the same. Don’t forget to closely plan out the menu of drinks that would be served in your party. Add beer, wine, mock-tails, cocktails and soft drinks depending on the theme and budget of your party.
Arrange the Perfect Music
Music is the life of every party and a patio party is no exception. Good music in the background will help create liveliness in your party. Curate a playlist that fits the theme and indicates when guests should start heading home for the night.
Plan Outdoor Games
In case you are a fan of lively and fun patio parties, do consider adding a few outdoor games to your party that match the theme. A good game of volleyball, football or Frisbee would add a lot of fun.
Keep a Back-up Plan
No matter how well you plan, there are still few uncertainties hovering over your party at all times. So, we suggest you to keep a back up on the food, music and games end to avoid any hardships later on.
