Setting Up Your Outdoor Space For Entertaining

Nothing beats spending your Summer nights surrounded by family and friends, dining al fresco and drinking your favorite seasonal cocktail in the comfort of your own home. If you haven’t already, it’s time to get your backyard ready for outdoor entertaining. Whether you want to incorporate some new lighting, decor or maybe a new fire pit, the additions you make will go a long way in your outdoor space. Or, are you looking for a total backyard makeover? Sensory Six specializes in creating living spaces that are elegant, luxurious and simple. Your outdoor living space should bring the comfort from the inside of your home, out into your yard. This extension of your living space can provide you and your family with additional square footage for relaxing, entertaining, and everyday living.

More guests, more seating.

The most important part of any outdoor space? Seating. Don’t be afraid to play around with different options, like sectionals or hammock chairs. One of the hottest items this Summer are ceramic garden stools. Garden stools can be so many things: a colorful accent piece, a charming side table, a textural element, or additional seating. Plus, they can act on their own, or be clustered together to use in place of a traditional coffee table.

The perfect ambiance.

Lighting can make or break your outdoor space. There are plenty of different ways to light up your backyard. Some will say that vintage string lights are a backyard staple. Strung above your patio, they can bring that instant touch of Summer magic to your space. Lanterns are also an outdoor must-have. Not only do they add a warm glow, but they are mobile, giving you the freedom to change up your lighting setup whenever you’d like. Don’t forget about your lawn! With solar-powered path lights and specialty garden lights, you can light the way and show off your landscaping at the same time.

A homey-feel.

Bring the indoors, out! Being outdoors can be as comfortable as being indoors. Incorporating outdoor rugs can make your patio feel more finished, cozy and inviting.

Bar carts are a must for entertaining, storing glassware, alcohol and all the mix-ins you crave. Plus, they're also one of the most versatile pieces you can own! Use them outdoors, then once Fall and Winter months roll around, bring it inside for year round entertaining. Outdoor bar carts are an entertaining essential for serving up food and drinks in a breeze. This will get your party guests out of the kitchen and keep them enjoying the beauty of the outdoors. 

Chilly nights.

Want to take your outdoor living space to another level? It’s important to keep it cozy, especially after dark. A fire pit is the perfect option for warmth and light. Nothing will stop you from enjoying your time, not a cool breeze, nor a chilly night.
