Spice Up Your Outdoor Space After an Enduring Winter

Now that March is here, and the snow is melting thoughts inevitably turn to spring and the good things that come with it which includes entertaining outdoors. Imagine kids playing in the backyard, guests lounging on your deck or patio enjoying music, conversation, a cocktail, and cookout.  Not to worry if your outdoor space is lacking pizzazz, it’s easy to transform it into an inviting oasis with some easy decorating ideas.

First off, ditch any winter holiday wreaths or decorations and use some elbow grease to clean up patio furniture.  With an outdoor space, comfort is important, but this can often be challenging.   Accent pillows can add a pop of color, but one of the easiest solutions to creating a welcoming area is to decorate with a new outdoor rug. Outdoor rugs bring some visual warmth to the space and make it easy to enjoy time outside in bare feet while preventing splinters from the deck. Outdoor rugs are also an affordable and effortless way to make the outdoors more chic; pick a rug in a bright color or a bold pattern to incorporate some style.

Next up, adorn the table with a new umbrella, along with some potted crocus or pansy plants. These cheerful plants have a high tolerance for the cold nights that are still with us in spring. A few hurricane candle holders along with a string or two of twinkling white lights add the final touches to make the space come alive for night time entertaining.  These tips are all simple and inexpensive.  After the long winter we have all endured, embrace spring with an outdoor space you’ll look forward to spending time in with friends and family.
