Ashley Furniture: Design Tips For A Dreamy Backyard

Do you love to entertain and throw parties at home? Make your backyard an extension of your home with these designer tips and ideas to create a stylish and functional yard you’ll love.

1. Create Activity Zones

Regardless of the size of your outdoor space, it’s a good idea to create separate zones for specific activities. You’ll need to have designated seating areas and space for serving drinks and food. If you’ll be grilling, make sure you have a space set aside for the grill, accessories, and food prep. You can also have a separate bar area for adult beverages. Relaxation zones around fire pits or hammocks are the perfect places for your guests to kick back, converse, and enjoy outdoor living. And don’t forget about fun and games! Ladder ball, cornhole, and even croquet or volleyball areas are perfect outdoor activities for outdoor parties.

2. Plan A Great Outdoor Dining Space

For hosts planning a formal sit-down meal, you can elevate your outdoor dining table with a few simple tips. If you’re needing a new table, you definitely want to invest in a quality dining table that you can safely place on a patio for alfresco meals. Once you have your table, it’s time to decorate! We love the look of comfy outdoor cushions added to dining tables, as well as throw blankets folded over the backs of chairs in case of a cool breeze. You can decorate your table with linens, runners, and dishware in a mix of colours and patterns, or decorate in modern monochrome. We’re partial to a picture-picture all-white hue, but you can make any monochrome pop with pretty minimalism.

3. Go Bold With Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting creates the perfect ambience for your backyard party. In addition to candles and lanterns, think about stringing fairy lights along a table or nearby bushes and trees. You can also string lights inside an outdoor chandelier to create a magical, vintage look.

4. Have Fun Decorating

There’s something extra fun about decorating for an outdoor get-together. Because it’s outdoors, you don’t have to worry about everything being pristine or perfectly matched. And you can incorporate much of the existing natural space into your decorating theme. Try using real greenery along with faux greenery to bring life to your area. Add festive spring throw pillows or throw blankets to any outdoor seating. Candles, candle holders, and lanterns add a cosy and relaxing feel to your event.
