Styling Your Backyard

Styling Your Backyard for a 4th of July Party

Holidays are the perfect time to invite family and friends over to create new memories together. Every host wants their backyard space to be warm and inviting so their guests feel comfortable and welcome. An area for fun and games is also important! Here are some ideas for styling your backyard for a 4th of July party.

Conversation Areas

Arrange a few plush outdoor sofas, or a large sectional, on a shaded patio or under a pergola. Having a primary seating area for conversations will let guests know that they can sit and relax. Use plush cushions, ottomans, and pillows for extra seating for younger guests. Be sure to have a coffee table and a few side tables nearby so guests have a place to set their beverage or snack plate. For more festive occasions like the 4th of July, it’s the perfect opportunity to create something special in your backyard. Consider integrating a fire pit into your yard. A large grass area or extended pool deck are great options for a fire pit. Arrange seating around the pit with large chairs or cushions. Add some chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers for a fun activity and s’ mores treat for guests.

Dining Seating

A dining table is an obvious choice for a backyard gathering, and it’s a great option for a large party. Unless you’re hosting a formal dinner party, don’t feel like everyone has to have a designated seat. Guests will make their way to the sofas and conversation sets, or even sit by the pool if they feel inclined. Throughout your outdoor space, it’s a good idea to have serving stations where guests can help themselves to a drink or snack. Keeping utensils, cups, and napkins out in the open will allow the hosts more time for mingling. Depending on the size of your party, a few small tables or one large table is ideal for a serving area.
