Once the weather begins to warm, you'll want to take your outdoor patio furniture out from the shed and start piecing together your backyard to use throughout the season. If you and your family love having guests over during the spring and summer, here are a few tips to make sure you're always prepared to entertain.
1. Make sure there is enough seating for everyone.
Your patio furniture might be perfect for your four-person family, but what do you do when you have guests over? Consider investing in some plush folding chairs to give your guests a place to kick back during your barbecue.
2. Simplify the dining process.
While you're buying folding chairs, consider purchasing a folding table for dining purposes. Real Simple Magazine suggests setting up a buffet during your parties to allow guests to serve themselves.
3. Keep your yard tidy.
Nothing is worse than having your guests drag grass clippings around on the bottom of their shoes. HGTV recommends raking up and weeding the yard before you invite people over for a big bash. In the end, you'll be proud to show off your landscape.
