Your friends are chatting, the kids are playing, and your beautiful fire pit is burning bright. From across the yard, you can almost taste the flavours that are flowing from your BBQ or pizza oven. As you open your drink and turn to your friends you realise that there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.
When handled properly, entertaining in your own backyard truly can be a dream come true. If you’re looking to enhance your outdoor entertainment, consider these extra elements that can spice up your outdoor space.
An outdoor bar fridge is one way to really complete the outdoor kitchen feeling. Imagine it – standing next to the smoker BBQ, when you feel the need for a cold drink. Instead of leaving the meat unattended and risking burning or overcooking it, you can simply reach down next to you and pull out a fresh one with next to no effort at all! If that’s not a dream, then we don’t know what is.
Outdoor living spaces are all the rage these days. One way to kill a festive mood is to do all your cooking and preparation inside, but having to trek inside to eat it! Some outdoor furniture will ensure that you can cook and eat outdoors – making the experience of entertaining in your yard that much more enjoyable for both you and your guests.
Some Space for Relaxing
Why leave your outdoor furniture collection at just a dining space? Parker Boyd has put out a great range of furniture that can be used for relaxing and socialising – so make sure that your backyard caters for all stages of the gathering, from the main meal to the after lunch siesta.
Your outdoor furniture is like your indoor furniture – it’s going to require some maintenance and care, maybe even more than your indoor décor. Make sure that all cushions are covered when not in use and that your timber is varnished and waterproofed. Give it a clean every once and a while to keep it free from dust and cobwebs and it’ll be sure to last you quite a long time.
Consider Covers Too
The Aussie sun can get overbearing and harsh during our summers, and winter can bring its own fair share of discomfort with rain and wind. Make sure that you and your friends and family are well covered. Shelta makes a great range of outdoor umbrellas that will ensure that you can entertain no matter what mood the weather is in.
Don’t Forget the Food!
The most important thing for outdoor entertaining is, of course, a BBQ! There are so many on the market these days that it can seem difficult to choose. Just remember that you can’t go wrong with trusted brands like Weber BBQ or a Primo BBQ. For those who are feeling more adventurous, or want to add some value to their home, a built-in BBQ might be the best choice.
And Have Fun!
This is the most important part. Get out in the backyard, grab a drink and a snack and have some fun with your friends and family!
