Your Outdoor Winter Party Starts Here!
If you are someone who loves entertaining, the holidays are your time to shine! With Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and the climax of the football season, there’s more than enough reasons to gather. If you’re someone who loves using your outdoor living space to entertain, don’t let the elements of the season drive you inside. Here’s how to throw a great outdoor winter party in your backyard.
- Have a covered space – This is cornerstone of a winter outdoor party since it’s the time of year when the wet stuff falls from the sky. A tent or pavilion can cover a space of almost any size. This turns whatever outdoor space you have into an extension of your house. Pavilions and tents will help protect your guests (and your fabulous food spread) safe from the winter elements.
- Lighting – Under the safety of your canopy, you’re going to need some light. The holidays are a festival of lights and color. Lighting your outdoor space in a fun festive way can be a great way to set the tone and ambiance of your party!
- Your menu – Winter is a great time to eat. Lots of baking, soups and comfort foods are popular on holiday party tables. If you’re throwing an outdoor party, make sure you have access to power so you can keep crockpots and chaffing dishes powered to keep hot dishes piping hot!
- Heating – Winter’s signature is the cool crisp air the season provides. Keeping your guests comfortable and warm can be achieved with a few well placed outdoor heaters, or a fire pit. You’ve got lots of options that are portable and easy to use, and more options if your outdoor space has room for a permanent structures. Heaters and firepits can be either electric or gas powered.
These are a few ways to throw a fabulous holiday party in the outdoor living space that you love so much. Your guests will love celebrating the spirit of the season outside.
