Once the calendar rolls around to the fifth month of the year, it’s time to start getting your backyard or patio area ready for the multiple possibilities of outdoor entertaining. With holidays ranging from Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to Memorial Day to the Fourth of July, help bring families together to laugh and make memories. Before you take your party outdoors, remember to consider a few options to keep your guests happy and lively.
Wow with Outdoor Cushions
Many people have wicker, teak or wrought iron furniture outdoors, which tend to heat up quickly after a few minutes in the sun. Consider adding custom-made cushions to fit your furniture perfectly. By opting for custom cushions, you can match your fabrics to your exterior and interior decor, all while getting the best fit possible for your furniture. For outdoor cushions, choose high-performance fabrics such as Sunbrella or Outdura, which are built to withstand the harshest of elements, resist fading and mildew. Sunbrella and Outdura offer hundreds of selections for the perfect combination to set your outdoor area apart. Custom outdoor cushions can be made to fit most any type of furniture that you own, from wicker sofas to chaise loungers to window seats.
Shading with Market Umbrellas
To keep your family and friends from getting too hot from the overbearing sun in the spring and summer months, install a market umbrella with your patio table. Market umbrellas, used often in commercial settings, are increasing in residential use, as they bring the resort feel to your own home. These umbrellas feature wind vents, which make them more wind-resistant. Since market umbrellas come without a valance, your family and friends can move back and forth from the table with ease. Wood frame umbrellas are warm and elegant, while aluminum frames are strong and resilient. Market umbrellas can be customized by changing panel colors or wind vent colors to make your backyard unique and beautiful. Various sizes and shapes are also available.
Throw Pillows for Fun and Design
Throw pillows are the perfect finishing touch to any outdoor living space. These pillows can serve a definitive design purpose as seat backs or as accessories, under the umbrella. Throw pillows make any space more inviting. With outdoor fabrics such as Sunbrella and Outdura, you can create coordinating pillows to match or compliment your custom cushions and umbrella to make the perfect outdoor living area.
