8 Summer Patio Decorating Ideas For Your Next Gathering

Are you gearing up for the summer season ahead? We know we are! Are you so pumped for warm weather, BBQ's and patio time? If the answer is yes, then check out these best summer patio decorating ideas we've gathered for summer 2018!

There is absolutely nothing I love more than sitting outside when the weather starts to get warmer. Seriously, if it were up to me I would spend all my time on my patio feeling the sun on my skin, or a cool breeze brushing through my hair. I absolutely refuse to ever eat inside of a restaurant from May-October, so you catch my drift. What I love even more than going out for meals is entertaining at home. If you have a patio and you are planning on entertaining this summer, you are going to want to spruce things up a bit. Here are 10 summer patio decorating ideas for your next gathering!

DIY Outdoor Bar

What better way to cool off in the hot summer months than to make drinks to enjoy on your patio. Cocktails, beer, rose, freshly squeezed lemonade – the possibilities are endless, and an outdoor bar is not expensive or difficult to build and customize to fit your preferences. You can use an old thrift store hutch, extra pieces of wood, refurbish an old metal cart, or use an old bookcase. It is a fun activity and will get a lot of use.

Comfortable Furniture

Of course the furniture has to be attractive looking, but more importantly, it has to be comfortable. You’re going to spend a lot of time either at the table or lounging on the couch. Therefore, it is important it is comfy. If you never want to get up then you nailed it.

Plants

Plants are a great way to decorate a space since pretty flowers just make everybody happy, it’s a fact. If you can, hang some up high. If not, you can add potted plants to your table or on the ground to add color and vibrancy.

Garden Grill

Obviously. How else would you be making great food to enjoy out there?! If you don’t have a lot of space (or money) for a real grill, you can buy cheaper ones for under 100 dollars at places like Walmart, Amazon, or Target. You can get a small one for 20 bucks, what a steal.

String Lights and Lanterns

Any excuse for string lights. I will actually put up string lights anywhere that it is possible. Ambiance, man. Ambiance. Lanterns are also a great way to add light come nighttime. Lanterns and string lights are wonderful additions to your outdoor space for summer patio decorating ideas.
