Backyard Entertaining Ideas + Inspiration

Springtime means warmer weather and backyard entertaining! Create a space in your home that’s inviting because there isn’t much better this springtime than to relax and spend time with your family and friends outside.

Whether that means stringing some string lights across your backyard for a European ambiance or making space for a fire pit for chilly evening weather, your backyard should be a place for friends and family to sit and enjoy each other.  Keep reading to see our favorite backyards that we want to relax and unwind in right now.


String lights instantly make your backyard space more alluring. They illuminate and give an awesome vibe for a great party where guests will want to sit all night. After lights are added, making a space inviting is easy!  All you need is a little music, wonderful conversation, a simple plate of yummies to much on,  and a bottle of wine…or a couple 😉

Make sure there is a place for guests to have easy access to food and drinks. Whether it’s a bar or an outdoor table,  guests need easy access to a plate of food or a cocktail.

A firepit is the ultimate outdoor escape. It’s great for kids to cook s’mores, and adults to sit around and have a glass of wine. A fire pit seems to bring everyone together, especially on those chilly spring nights. There are so many options of firepits these days in so many price ranges.  Find one that fits your budget and watch the magic happen as you enjoy amazing conversation with your family.

Seating zones are essential when it comes to entertaining in your backyard! Make your space more open and functional by spreading out your seating areas so guests are able to move around, mingle, and get comfortable. Additional seating is key when hosting a backyard party. Not everyone wants to stand, so just like any party, having different options for seating is really important.

Don’t have tons of space?  You don’t want guests to keep coming in and outside just to get a drink.  Get creative and do a wall mounted fold out bar, or set up a small table with a table cloth in a specific area for drinks and apps so guests have quick and easy access.  Make sure guests can easily get in and out so you don’t get a “traffic jam”.  There’s nothing more frustrating for your guests.

Get a pitcher like this and mix a drink for guests.  Besides the fact that it looks really pretty, it is super functional.  No one is spilling trying to pour out of a pitcher or trying to mix their own to the side. This is striking and perfect for backyard entertaining for both kids and adults.
