Summer’s almost here and I can hardly wait to fire up that grill and serve up some burgers to my friends and family. Patio parties are as American as apple pie. Tanned kids run through the sprinklers while adults relax with good conversation and a cold beer. Life doesn’t get much better.
Here are some ideas to add just the right touches to your parties this year including using an outdoor wreath or two in just the right spot.
Roses are red, violets are blue – Flowers and plants bring style, sophistication, and a burst of color to your patio. The more the better. Fill in empty spaces on the patio with large pots overflowing with greenery and in-season flowers. Hang baskets from awnings and deck rails. Place outdoor wreaths on the tables or hang them from your doors or put on over the fire pit. An outdoor wreath can add just the right touch to those special areas.
Consider purchasing artificial plants and silk flowers for their hypoallergenic qualities, exceptionally lifelike appearance, and extremely low maintenance. Especially if you entertain often, spending a few dollars more upfront is a wise and well-spent long term investment.
