Tips for Throwing a Successful Backyard Bash

Spring and summer are the perfect seasons for throwing a backyard bash! Get ready for your event by sprucing up your outdoor space, from manicuring the lawn, to adding fresh flowers and mulch. Here are a few tips to help you pull off the most talked about event of the season!

  • Conversation Starters: Create a color contrast against the green grass and trees by planting colorful annuals throughout your backyard event space. For even more visual interest, scatter attention-grabbing pots or unique vessels to showcase your plants. It will certainly be a conversation starter and leave your guests talking about your creative eye.
  • Comfort is key: Keeping your guests comfortable during your outdoor event is essential. By setting up seating in a well-shaded spot in the yard, your guests will surely have a more enjoyable time. If you need to create shade, consider renting a tent where guests can cool off with a cocktail. Be sure to provide cool, cushioned seating options as well. Plastic and heat make for uncomfortable guests.
  • Choose a theme: Add a touch of personality to your backyard bash, by choosing a theme such as an English garden to a Parisian cafe for your guests. Be consistent with your theme from the invitations, to the food offerings, to the color schemes and décor. You want your guests to feel as if they are really in the place you’ve created.
  • Consider rental: Don’t have the appropriate outdoor furnishings for your themed backyard bash? Consider furniture rental as an affordable alternative for your event. Furniture rental gives you the option to find the right styles for your event theme without making a major investment. And when your event is over, CORT will pick it up!

By following these tips, your backyard bash is sure to be a success!
