As we come to the start of June, everyone is thinking about summer vacations, kids being out of school, and time outdoors. As you spend the long summer nights hosting barbecues and bonfires, transform your back yard into another living space. We’ve got you covered with some great ideas!
Build a S’mores Bar
We all know campfires and s’mores go hand in hand! Find some marshmallow sticks and make a cute display. Then on a table set up all the ingredients for your guests to make their delicious s’mores.
Light up your Trees
Are all those strands of holiday lights just sitting in your basement? String them up around your trees for a simple and cost effective way to add some ambiance to your summer festivities.
Snack on the Centerpiece
With tons of fruits and veggies being in season this time of year, take advantage of their bright colors and make a table centerpiece. Simply gather some vases and chop up your vegetables, and you have table décor that’s vibrant and delicious!
Go for the Gift Wrap
Summer is all about bold colors and fun patterns, so dress up that table with a roll of fun wrapping paper as an accent. Not only is it cheap and easy, but you can easily dispose of it when the party’s over.
Use Berries as “Ice”
For a fun and refreshing summer cocktail everyone can enjoy, take some frozen berries and add to lemonade after you pour in each glass. They look prettier than ice cubes, and add great flavor!
Outdoor Movie Night
What’s better than enjoying a movie under the summer night stars? All you’ll need is a projector, a white wall or sheet, and a speaker. Lay down some blankets and pillows, and you have a fun evening everyone will love.
