Style Edit: Outdoor Entertaining Essentials
A lot can go into outdoor entertaining, but with a few staples – it’s a guaranteed good time! Here is a list of decor, games and other accessories to create a happy home for the summer season!
1. Drink Dispenser
Make a fun cocktail, or, at the least – keep water available for guests! This also serves as functional decor on a table or bar.
2. Linen Napkins
Not only do these look nice, it’s easier and more sustainable than running out to grab paper products for a party!
3. Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
We have two favorites, a small clip on for chairs or beach days, and another that can easily sit on a table with great power! Absolutely needed to set a mood.
4. Backpack Picnic Basket
The backpack element makes carrying items easier, but certainly creates a fun experience when heading to a destination for outdoor entertainment. This one is a great mix for snacks and booze!
5. All the Shade
Depending on your location, you may need some shade! These pop up tents are great for quick set up and come in many patterns.
6. Lawn Games
I shared two easy-to-learn games for all ages that keep the yard looking clean and chic during any event. Games are a great way to get unfamiliar guests talking and bond!
7. Folding Chairs
These compact chairs are great for easy storage in the home and the car. They come in so many prints, I’m excited to partner with this brand soon!
8. Plastic, Easy-to-Clean Serveware
I linked plates, cups and flatware that look the part, but can easily be cleaned or eventually tossed without breaking your budget! It’s also preferred to avoid glass due to accidental drops and safety.
End the evening with a gathering around a fire pit. This version is popular due to its size and ability to use on many surfaces.
10. Stylish Cooler Bag
This is one of those items that is fun to find! Size and durability is important, too, but a fun print makes a setup even nicer.
11. Oversized Wine Tumbler
Need I say more? Of course applies to keep water and mixed drinks cool too.
12. Catch All Bag
I love my straw bag to use as a catch all for transporting items, personal belongings etc. It holds up well and looks cute for any set up!
