3. Don’t forget the seating

While the weather is warming up, we tend to find ourselves outside more often- with our guests and our family.  Make sure that each of your visitors present at your social function has a seat by adding seating to your outdoor paradise. You can increase seating, not only in the form of chairs, but also with ottomans or garden stools!

When the sun sets, but your outdoor party is still in full swing- guarantee that the function continues with your outdoor lighting! Make a display with lovely lanterns or brilliant candles to produce a breathtaking ambiance, which is sure to make all of your guests ‘ooh and aww’.

5. Pillows!

For the seamless finishing touch on your outdoor retreat, add a few colorful pillows to bring out the accent color in the rug or accessories.  Using indoor/outdoor pillows will help safeguard the material from fading or being damaged from the sunlight.
