Tips for a Great Backyard Party

Tidy Up Your yard doesn’t need to look like it’s straight from a garden magazine, but doing a quick sweep, raking and lawn cutting can go a long way to make your yard look trim and well-kept.

Set the Mood Consider stringing up some soft lights, adding a few stylish lanterns or lighting candles on the table as the bright day transitions to sunset.

Include Guest Activities If children are coming, have some sidewalk chalk or bubbles at the ready. For adults, playing cards after dinner or a game of Prosecco Pong are sure to be a hit.

Keep Beverages Fully Stocked Nothing ends a party faster than running out of beverages. Purchase a little extra of your favorites, so any leftovers won’t go to waste.

Don’t Forget the Little Things Sunscreen and bug spray can be a life saver, but little touches like fresh flowers, a s’more platter, or wine charms add a little festivity to your event.
