Your Guide To Holiday Entertaining Outdoors

Published Date: Dec 5, 2018

Maximizing on space for holiday gatherings is never an issue with an updated hardscape design. With the extra square footage provided by your outdoor living space, the holiday parties never have to end!

Private Dinners

Just because the weather is cooler, doesn’t mean the indoor dining room is the only space to host a dinner party. With an extended paver patio, you can also enjoy dining al fresco with your loved ones.

Elegant built-in BBQ islands and outdoor kitchens add double the preparation space for the host, making cooking for small or large gatherings outdoors a breeze.

Add in a bar area or wine fridge to the mix and you’ve now achieved pro outdoor host status. Instead of everyone needing to rush back into the kitchen each time they need a refill or a bite to eat, the entire gathering can stay outdoors.

And don’t forget the element of fire. Since the weather has cooled down significantly, the added warmth from a fire pit or built-in fireplace is exactly whatever outdoor space needs to keep everyone comfortable and having a good time.

Festive Holiday Parties

Hosting a holiday party outdoors is easily accomplishable with a fire pit and paver sitting wall.

An elegant fire pit is the perfect outdoor element for keeping guests warm, while a paver sitting wall provides ample space for them to relax and mingle.

Include some jolly décor around your landscape design to create a festive ambiance and let the fun begin.

Utilize the bar space at your outdoor kitchen to set up a variety of cocktail ingredients. Include a recipe display that boasts a holiday-themed drink or two and encourage guests to be their own mixologists.

If you’re looking to add some additional entertainment to the mix, you could set up fun games for everyone to enjoy on an artificial turf lawn. Giant outdoor Jenga, outdoor bowling and cornhole are perfect games for guests to enjoy.

New Year’s Ball Drop Celebration

Ringing in the New Year outdoors is always a perfect idea when there’s a built-in fireplace to create warmth for guests all night long.

An illuminating LED landscape lighting design will keep your own personal NYE alive and allow guests to party well past the ball drop at midnight!

If you have a pergola covered patio, you could even set up a projector screen with outdoor speakers to show live TV coverage of the ball dropping. Now your guests will feel like they are right there in Times Square, enjoying New Year’s Eve!

The holidays are a time to enjoy the company of family, friends, and co-workers. With an updated outdoor living space, you will never need to worry about a lack of indoor space to entertain your loved ones!
