If you are looking to create a stunning party that is inexpensive and sure to please your guests why not incorporate some DIY party flair.
Spend your parties enjoying the company of your guests rather than dealing with last-minute stress with these tips for the perfect DIY outdoor party.
Rather than clutter your kitchen and dividing your party bring your kitchen outdoors and into the party with a DIY outdoor cooking solution.
Whether you prefer a grilling, roasting on a fire pit or using an outdoor pizza oven you can find something to suit your tastes.
Roll out some pizza dough, plan a burger night or serve up some skewers and enjoy the simple pleasure of outdoor cooking.
When you are inviting people over to a yard party or an outdoor event at your home you want your garden to be looking good.
Weeding, trimming and hanging garlands are great ways to spruce up your backyard.
Consider looking for a local lawn mower service on WikiLawn so that your lawn is looking its best.
Avoid balloons as decorations as popped or fogotten deflated balloons will pollute your garden. Fabric or paper garlands will give your backyard a more elegant DIY feel.
It’s important to come up with some ways to combat insect issues.
During the day you might have to contend with flies which are hard to deter. You can easily create a fly trap yourself or buy one at your local hardware store that can be hung in trees. We recommend using multiple traps and using fly covers on your food.
Night time parties bring their own challenges, including mosquitoes.
Citronella candles bring a beautiful ambiance to your eating area and deter mosquitoes. Many people opt for bug zappers at night, but the noise can be off-putting.
Offering your guests repellent is also a good idea.
Use lighting that enhances the mood of a nighttime party with fairy lights, festoon lights or candles on the table.
Lighting can be as low or high tech as you want it to be.
Saving jars for candles is a simple way that you can create an intimate atmosphere and you can customize them by wrapping lace around the outside or painting the jars to create enchanting patterns and colors.
The volume of your music and the type of music you choose will set the tone of your party.
As a rule,make sure that your music is loud enough to be audible but not so loud that you can’t hear your guests.
There are apps that allow guests to contribute to the playlist choices if you don’t feel like curating a playlist yourself, but have at least 2 hours of music ready to go.
If you think that your party might disrupt the neighbors, ensure you send them a courtesy card beforehand to avoid animosity.
