I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is officially over. But you don’t have to take your parties indoors just yet. With a little bit of work, you can prepare your outdoor living space for the fall season, creating the perfect environment for parties and social gatherings.
Rake Leaves and Pine Needles
With the transition from summer to fall comes lots of fallen leaves and pine needles, so much in fact that it may blanket your outdoor living space. Depending on where exactly you live, and the distance to nearby trees, you may want to rake the area to keep it clean. If raking sounds like too much work, you can always use a leaf blower to eliminate fallen leaves and pine needles. Just remember to keep the leaves on your property; otherwise, you may get a knock at your front door from an angry neighbor.
If you plan on hosting any outdoor parties, you’ll want to set up some heat source to keep guests warm and comfortable throughout the fall and winter seasons. There are a few different options when it comes to heating, one of which is a outdoor patio heater (yes, there are heater designed specifically for the outdoors). But if you really want to create a relaxing environment, a better option is a portable fire pit. Portable fire pits like those sold here at S&S Fire Pit offer warmth and a relaxing ambiance. And unlike a patio heater, you can even cook food on a portable fire pit.
Go Festive with the Decorations
There’s no better time than the fall season to update your outdoor living space with festive decorations. Halloween, for instance, is right around the corner, in which case you can decorate your outdoor living space with pumpkins, fake spider webs, skeleton bones, etc. Be warned, though, this may attract more trick-or-treaters to your home come October 31st, so stock up on the fun-sized candy bars before this spooky holiday arrives.
If Halloween isn’t your cup of tea, you can still embrace the fall season by decorating your outdoor living space with autumn colors. The folks over at HGTV have put together an excellent collection of patios and porches with some stylish seasonal fall decorations.
