Outdoor Entertaining In Style
Enhance your outdoor entertaining experience with these tips from KZ Design Group.
Choose comfortable furnishings with brightly colored fabrics. Brightly hued fabric will add color to the many earthy tones outside.
Provide your outdoor entertaining area with its own ambiance and scintillate the senses with music and lighting. Both are key elements for creating the perfect mood, whether you are having a few friends over for a quiet dinner or throwing a large cocktail party.
Contribute to the overall atmosphere with elements of nature such as broad-leafed plants and colorful blooms in various types of containers; water elements (a pool, spa or fountain); and fire elements (a fire pit, fireplace or torches).
Highlight your outdoor cooking experience with the addition of a pizza oven alongside your barbecue grill.
Include festive touches with patterned umbrellas, colorful accent rugs, striped throw pillows, Chinese lanterns and other interesting accessories.
