Patio Perfect: How to Prep Your Outdoor Living Space

With Memorial Day upon us (and hopefully that last snow of the season!), it’s time to swing open the patio doors and welcome outdoor entertaining season.  The weather is getting warmer, the days longer, and dining al fresco is on the horizon.  After what seemed like an endless winter, your patio, no-doubt, needs a little TLC.

Add Soft Touches with Rugs and Throw Pillows

Summer is all about an informal atmosphere and nothing says hang-out and relax awhile like the right mix of textiles.  Anchor your space with our collection of indoor/outdoor rugs. They’re durable, easy to clean (like with a spray of the hose,) and come in a great range of pattern and color.  Soften things up with a few accent pillows, and finish it off with a cozy throw that can double as a picnic blanket or wrap on a cool evening.

Set the Scene with Candles and Botanicals

The warm glow of candlelight and a bountiful mix of greenery create the perfect summer vibe.   Light the way with a mix of pillar candles nestled inside rustic hurricanes and a scattering of glass votives.  From traditional wax to LED to our refillable Lucid candles that burn with a real flame but instead of messy wax, use clean liquid paraffin…. no matter your preference, an abundance of candles will set the mood.

Our collection of decorative containers range from sleek and sophisticated to rustic and organic and make perfect outdoor accents.  Pop in a few fresh blooms from your garden for an easy centerpiece or add a cluster of vases to a side-table for a natural touch.  Don’t have a green thumb?  Our remarkably real faux-succulents are a great way to add color and texture… don’t worry, no one will ever know they’re faux.

Entertaining Essentials: Barware & Tabletop

Outdoor entertaining is all about keeping it easy.  With a mix of our favorite unbreakable barware that has the clarity of glass but will not shatter and our collection of melamine dinnerware from classic white to playful patterns… you’ve got an entertaining arsenal that is kid-proof, dishwasher safe, and perfect for a backyard barbecue or the pool.  Throw out a stylish beverage trough, an abundant spread on Homefest’s selection of marble and wood charcuterie boards, and a few bright summer linens and we’d call that patio-perfect.
