Our wardrobe is not the only thing that changes once the warm weather hits. Our outdoor patio deserves just as much attention. You want to create the right vibe for hosting all your favorite summer holidays. Whether you’re thinking of Memorial Day or Labor Day weekend, your patio needs the perfect gathering atmosphere. In this guide, you’ll find helpful tips to get your patio ready for summertime.


After choosing your patio decorating design style, you can make simple additions to your furniture to transform your patio from drab to fab. Patio furniture can shine even more with accessories as well. The right throw pillows and blankets can make any couch or chair look inviting. Choosing the correct color scheme and adding a bright or soft colored throw to offset the patterns will create the perfect cozy vibe. Consider getting lighting for those days on which parties roll into the evening. Candles and string lights are always good additions and are easy to install.

Keep the Bugs Away

Nothing is more annoying than uninvited guests at your gatherings, and mosquitos never receive an invitation. Get rid of mosquitos for all gatherings so that your patio is summertime ready. Keeping the bugs sprays out for your guests and constantly tracking who had it last can be a bigger pest than the bugs. Luckily for us, there are alternatives.

  • Candles don’t only keep your party bright; they can also keep the bugs at bay. Citronella candles help keep your guest gathered and mosquitos scattered.
  • Add natural oils into a spray bottle with water and spray your outdoor area before your guests arrive. Feel free to do so again during the party, too. Cedar oil, lavender oil, lemongrass oil, or rosemary oil are great options.


Food brings people together, and a party is never complete without food. Whether you’re hosting a huge dinner party, a BBQ, or an intimate gathering, your patio should have the proper crockery. Here are a couple of points to keep in mind.

  • Provide decorative mason jars at the beginning of the party for your guests. Sure, you can reach in the cooler and pull out a soda, but you can’t label your name on soda cans the way you can on a mason jar.
  • Rather than having those regular paper plates, you can invest in some outdoor crockery. It makes for better table settings and shows how much effort you put into your event.

The most important thing is that your guests feel comfortable on your patio. Any one of these tips will help accomplish this exact goal.
