Simple Steps For Planning an Outdoor Party

Japanese Lanterns

One of the best ways to celebrate an event is to throw a party set amidst the beauty of the natural world. Outdoor parties take a little bit of extra planning, but the payoff can be worth it, with the elements of nature itself acting as decorative accents for the festivities. This can create a situation where the warmth of the sun and the touch of a breeze are inherent parts of the celebratory experience.

Getting Started

- Start by deciding whether you want a buffet style event or something more formal where all your guests will sit at a central location.

- Determine how you want to feed your guests. You can barbecue, cook indoors, or have the event catered.

- Plan ahead, and make sure there are shaded areas where you can place food to ensure that it doesn�t rapidly spoil.

Arranging the Space

- You should look at the space that you have, and try to arrange your elements to support the type of party you want to create.

- Tables are a great place for decorative accents. Edible treats such as bowls of fruit, or candies can provide you with splashes of color that your guests can munch on.

- If you don�t have enough outdoor furniture, dining chairs and folding tables can be used to supplement your pieces, in order to ensure that everyone has a place to sit.


- Holding the event outdoors gives you a variety of options for ways to entertain your guests.

- You can get everyone involved in group sporting event such as volleyball, racquetball, or kickball.

- Set up a separate area for kids to play, filled with toys and games that will keep them occupied. If it is a sit down event then a separate kids table filled with paints and coloring books to keep them occupied.


- During the day, the sun can illuminate the event. If you have a cloudy day then extra fixtures can be brought outdoors to ensure that your guests have plenty of light.

- At night, string lights can be strung across walls or overhead to create enchanting illuminated displays.

- Candles can create a soft flickering glow in your outdoor areas. Citronella candles have the extra advantage of keeping insects away from the event.

- Tiki torches are a popular outdoor accessory that can be used to create pathways and rooms in open outdoor spaces.
