Entertain Guests with These Creative Backyard Ideas

Whether it is a lazy Sunday or a holiday BBQ, the backyard is everyone’s favorite hangout zone. With summer here, there is no better time to start planning your own outdoor paradise. Whether you are looking to entertain guests outside or just a way to spruce up your space, explore our guide to learn five backyard ideas for the perfect hangout place.

Create Ambiance With Backyard Lighting

When entertaining outdoors, the wrong lighting can darken anyone’s mood. A well-designed backyard combines lighting to create a vibrant hangout place. When lighting your outdoor space, keep light flattering yet enticing. Outline pathways with post lights, cast a glow with decorative lanterns or hanging twinkle lights and showcase greenery like a botanical garden with in-ground lighting. If you want to keep it simple yet brilliant, you cannot go wrong with globe lighting, which will brighten any backyard setup.

Outdoor Bars Make the Perfect Backyard Hangout

Backyard bars are one of the season’s biggest trends that can take your outdoor space to the next level. Whether you like your bars ultra-modern or with rustic charm, your backyard hangout will get a major upgrade from a designated area for mixing and sipping cocktails. If you want to bring the fun vibes all year, opt for a tile bar that can withstand anything the weather throws at it – yes, even hail.

Chat with Friends at a Fire Pit With Seating

Fire pits with seating add a cozy beauty to your outdoor space and make the perfect backyard centerpiece. Little else is needed with these relaxing scene-stealers. Surround your fire pit with plenty of comfortable seating, like a circular wicker sofa, then invite everyone to bring marshmallows for the ultimate backyard hangout.

Enjoy Outdoor Entertainment With Games

For long sunny days, you need to keep everyone entertained. Outdoor games are a great way to provide some much-needed fun to your backyard setup. For an easy, low-stakes game anyone can enjoy, our favorite lawn game is corn hole, which you can play with as few as two players. Bocce ball is also a fun outdoor activity with similar rules to olympic curling.

Provide a Cinematic Outdoor Space With a Theater

Transform your backyard space into your favorite movie theater. As the weather gets warmer, move the whole party outside to watch your favorite film under the stars. All you need is a portable projector, a screen, sheet or wall and a set of outdoor speakers. Set a romantic mood with candles for date night or pile blankets and outdoor cushions to set a camp vibe. Whatever you do, do not forget the popcorn.
