Food, drinks, and snacks are necessary to keep any party going. However, feeding the guests at any event is not all it takes to keep everyone satiated. For some, picture-worthy aesthetics are needed to seal the deal. For others, probably something they can have their eyes wander off to at intervals or attractions to keep their kids occupied. As a party host, the bulk of work rests on your shoulders. With refreshments to worry about, you equally have your decor to deal with. In this article, we will focus on 5 tips to spice up your outdoor party decor.
5 Tips For A Thrilling Home Outdoor Party
Engage Your Overhead Space
There are several options you can opt for when working with your overhead space. The best part of this option is that each element has a flair to it. Some mainstream options in this field are:
For a within-reach or commonplace alternative, air balloons would be good enough. However, to spice things up, you could go with refillable water balloons.
Piñatas & Streamers -
Piñatas remain a great way to have your decor double as a fun activity. Using streamers, you can add a festive touch to your party if you feel the need to.
Some extra lighting never hurts. With colourful patterns on string lights or lanterns, you can introduce an ambient feel to your party.
Greens Are a Must
If your outdoor party extends to your lawn, you would already have a fix of nature. However, if you will be holding your party on your patio or pool, you might have to bring nature in yourself. Nature remains one of the most flexible decor options. From filling stylish or minimalist vases with fresh flowers to hanging dried flowers, and even hanging dry or fresh flower wreaths, there is almost an endless list of what you can create and introduce to your party decor in the form of natural greens.
Outdoor Attractions for Kids
Depending on the nature of your party, you may or may not want kids running around. However, to clear the air of tension and leave your party guests with little to worry about, having something to keep the kids busy would do a lot of good. If you do not have an existing backyard playground, you can bring in elements of a makeshift playground. To prevent these items from outshining the actual theme of your party, you could get minimal pieces. For example, sprinklers, tricycles, Slip ’n slides, or beach balls.
Throw in a Bash of Colours
Exciting colours remain one way to keep the party spirits up. Depending on you, the party host, you can make every item in sight a part of a general colour scheme. Indeed, your food, snacks, play attractions, tableware, decor, drinks, and fruits can all follow a set tone for your party, be it warm, cool, or neutral colours all around.
Outdoor-Rugs And Throw Pillows
These two elements are seldom seen in the outdoor party scene. However, adding items like these create a sense of coziness, while holding the general theme of your party together. In addition, you could use your outdoor rug and pillows to bring in whatever colours you desire.
In the end, do not throw caution out the patio. Ensure that the safety of everyone around is accounted for. This would mean caution when working with electricity for your string lights (especially where an extension will be used), and where there are kids, minimal adult supervision. The best part about these party decor tips is that they work for kids and adults alike. And with options like lights, streamers, refillable water balloons, pillows, and outdoor rugs, you can rest assured that they will turn up at the next similar-themed party you hold.
