Hosting a Summer Gathering

Published on June 8th 2022

How to host a summer gathering? With these helpful tips from our designers, you can throw the happiest summer get‑together around! So what're you waiting for? Jump to it for some patio furniture ideas and backyard BBQ party ideas.

Organize Your Kitchen Like an Expert

Unless you plan to get food and drinks catered, your kitchen should be one of the first spaces you tackle. Make sure you have a heavy-duty trash can, because we suggest you start by going through your fridge and cupboards and throwing out any foods that have expired.

Once you've made room for fresh ingredients, get some organizers for your countertops and cabinets to ensure everything has its proper place. 

When you are ready with party food or BBQ food prep, wheel it from the kitchen to the living room and patio. A cart can have you covered everywhere, and it offers the extra storage you’ve always needed. Fill it with fruits, snacks, and other treats that your guests will enjoy. 

Finally, add some summer‑themed decorations and fresh flowers to bring the space together and set a festive mood!

Style Your Patio for Your Peeps

Always remember that a summer gathering is never complete without appropriate outdoor seating. Otherwise, how're you and your guests going to enjoy the beautiful summer day? 

Bring your space to life with a patio makeover — add some outdoor‑friendly furniture and an umbrella that offers plenty of shade. 

Enrich the area by adding some potted plants to style a lush, in‑bloom look. 

Once you've crafted the perfect space for socializing and relaxing, sprinkle in the amount of summer decor that feels right to you. The right summer front porch decor can go a long way when it comes to bringing the vibe you’re going for.

Create an Exciting Backyard for Summer Fun

Last but definitely not least, it's time to prep your backyard for all the fun, festive activities you'll have. Take some time to do yard work to give your garden and lawn a manicured look. If you want to take your party to the next level, get a trampoline so your little guests can play a game. 

When all is said and done, you’ll be able to enjoy the backyard all summer long — whether you’re having a BBQ, hosting a backyard wedding, or a combination of both (backyard BBQ wedding, anyone?!?), it’ll be one to remember.

Turn Your Backyard into the Space of Your Dreams
Turn Your Backyard into the Space of Your Dreams For many, choosing a good outdoor furniture set is often an afterthought. They think “I spend most of my time inside, so why should I care so much about outdoor furniture?” But perhaps the reason they spend so much time inside instead of outside is because they didn’t choose a good outdoor furniture set. After all, you’re more likely to use something if you like it, right?
