Outdoor entertaining doesn’t have to be elaborate. With a little thought and creative planning your outdoor space can be as comfortable and welcoming as those inside. And you don’t need a huge garden; with a few simple additions, patios, rooftops and even balconies can all be transformed into stylish areas to share with family and friends.
The charm of outdoor entertaining is that it’s naturally more relaxed, so you don’t need to spend hours creating the perfect space. Combining the right garden furniture and accessories with a barbecue area and some carefully chosen plants can quickly and easily create the perfect outdoor entertainment space.
If you’ve got more time, installing a fire pit will create an ideal centrepiece or focal point and combined with comfortable seating and imaginative lighting, will transform your garden into a truly magical place and give your guests somewhere to relax long into the night.
So if your goal this summer is to spend time outdoors relaxing with friends and family, now is the time to get preparations underway.
