How To Setup Your Outdoor Space For Holiday Gatherings

Published Date: Dec 5, 2019

With the holidays approaching fast, now is the time to personalize your outdoors with a few key elements to create a dreamy wonderland that is perfect for enjoying this festive season with friends, neighbors and family.

With fire elements, paver patios, and professionally designed outdoor lighting, your outdoor space will be transformed into a cozy, glowing environment perfect for celebrating the holiday season.

Fire Elements

A fire element is an absolute must for creating an outdoor space that is enjoyable during the cold winter months. Elegant and practical, there are a variety of fire elements that can help you enjoy your stunning outdoor space during the cold, wet days of late fall and winter. Choose from personalized fire pits, to modern fire bowls and outdoor fireplaces.

Installing a fire element will make your outdoors suitable for hosting your holiday gatherings. The warmth of the fire and the dancing flames will draw your family members in, encouraging closeness and conversation. An accompanying seating area with plush pillows and fluffy throw blankets will help make everyone comfortable and to add warmth to every gathering.

Paver Patios

Designing the perfect paver patio makes for a multi-functional setting for all of your holiday events. Work with a System Pavers design professional to create a space tailored to your entertaining needs.

Aside from having the right design to accommodate your gatherings, decorate the space with twinkling holiday lights and all of your favorite festive decorations to really bring your patio life. Mistletoe, strings of holly, pergola lights and speakers to play your favorite holiday songs are a great place to start.

Set up stations celebrating each of the elements that make the holidays the most wonderful time of the year. What could be better than a gingerbread house making station, or a hot cocoa station complete with marshmallows, cocoa, and cozy mugs? The adults will thank you for keeping their kids occupied, and also for the spiced rum or mulled wine station that you’ve set up on your paver patio just for them.

Outdoor Lighting

Christmas lights are great for adding to your holiday outdoor décor, but they won’t be enough for your guests to feel safe and enjoying the party.  Keep your holidays well lit and cheery with the right lighting design. Leave it to the experts at System Pavers to strategically place lighting around your home that will enhance the ambiance of the space, add depth to elements of your yard, and provide a sense of safety for night time entertaining.

As an added benefit, you can keep a better eye on children playing games on the artificial turf while you kick back and relax on your outdoor furniture, enjoying a glass of spiced eggnog and the warmth of your desired fire element
