Don’t let this cold wet weather fool you as before we know it, it is going to be clear blue skies and outdoor entertaining will be in full swing!
Here are a couple of tips to help you create the perfect outdoor entertaining space this season:
Don’t be afraid of using outdoor rugs: Outdoor rugs ground your furniture pieces, as well as adding texture, colour, and softness to any outdoor space. Rugs are also to help define different entertaining spaces for outdoors, guiding guests when they arrive. Most outdoor rugs are easy to maintain with a simple hose down after use.
Add a Table Runner: Bring a little bit of sophistication and style to your outdoor space by using a beautiful table runner to compliment the style of your trays and serving platters.
Make it comfortable: Comfortable outdoor cushions and throws make all the difference, especially on those chilly nights where you want to extend the outdoor party after the sun goes down.
Don’t leave it until last minute: Most furniture lead times are 6-12 weeks for larger items, so we recommend getting in sooner than later to make the most of your new designs for the season!
We have put together two “Shop the Looks” below to help you start thinking about what look you wish to achieve for your next Spring gathering!
