We just moved into a new home, which has a really gorgeous patio and a roomy outdoor space. I was thinking of inviting my friends over to celebrate our recent move and celebrate the lovely season. Can you tell me what things I should consider if I want to host an outdoor party in autumn?
First, I would like to congratulate you on the new home. I am sure you are both excited about setting up the space that your family will enjoy over the coming years. Trying to get everything in order is daunting. Having friends over to celebrate your new space might just be a great way to relieve stress.
Fall is a festive season on its own. I have recently been saddened by summer’s end, and since I just came from one of the busiest summers I have ever had, I began to miss those extended daylight hours.
Hosting an outdoor party is one way to make up for summer’s disappearance. This way you can extend the outdoor activities and have a sense of community before winter. It is also a great way to bring people together before the holiday rush. To throw a great autumn party, here are things you need to help accommodate your guests in the changes brought by the season.
1. Coziness of outdoor temperature
An outdoor fireplace is a great way to extend the use of your outdoor spaces throughout the year. It can also make the cold months and that cabin fever feeling seem shorter. This addition serves three purposes: it provides warmth in your patio or garden, it serves as a wonderful focal point and, finally, it adds a decorative element to the landscape.
The Heirloom Copper Fire Pit from Balsam Hill is an outdoor fireplace you can set up wherever you want. When rested on its die-cast aluminum base, it doubles as an elegant accent that draws everyone’s attention. Rust-proof and light for easy setup, the fire pit is crafted to last a lifetime.
After dishing up appetizers, serve warm cider or hot mugs of cocoa. Then use the fire pit to roast marshmallows with your loved ones. This will allow you to relish the campfire feel, without the hassles usually involved.
2. Sufficient outdoor lighting
Lighting at night will not be as bright outdoors during autumn. Aside from relying on the illumination of your outdoor wall sconces, lampposts, fire pit and moonlight, you will need a couple of other party lights to brighten up the area.
