T-minus two weeks until Memorial Day weekend! We can’t think of a more perfect way to kick off the start to summer than throwing a backyard BBQ with your closest family and friends! Once you’ve gotten the word out about your gathering, you’ll need to get your outdoor space ready:


Take out furniture - Create a space where your guests can mingle by arranging your furniture appropriately. This includes your backyard table, swings, loveseats, and wicker chairs. Turn the furniture inwards to make a good conversation easier.


Garden - Once your furniture is in place, add some color to your space. From tulips to sunflowers, there are many types flowers that can spruce up your garden plus make it smell nice. Before you start planting, learn which blooms best thrive in your climate and what kind of care they need.


Add pops of color - Say “Hello, Summer!” by incorporating decorative accents to your yard. Whether this means adding an arrangement of pillows to your loveseat or a floral centerpiece to your table, bringing color to your space can take your exterior decorating to the next level.


Dust off awnings - Don’t let it rain on your Memorial Day gathering! Prepare your awning by brushing off dust, pollen, and any other debris. Make sure it’s ready for when you need it - even if the sun is extra strong that day. Your guests will feel much more comfortable!
