Outdoor Bar Accessories and Summer Entertaining

“What a fun party!” “What a neat way to visit with friends!” “Everything was perfect!” Those are the types of comments we love to hear after entertaining family, friends, or neighbors. First things first, however. Do you have the outdoor bar accessories you need for a perfect Summer evening, a special celebration or an exciting pre-game Fall gathering?

Perhaps you are thinking ahead about entertaining you need to do and want to do, but have been putting it off.  Now is the time!  Grab a notebook and start your various categories and lists; work toward an evening in your own outdoors and one that will be remembered.  Investments in various outdoor bar accessories will put you steps ahead in the future.  It all will be so much easier, once you have the items you need for the memorable evening – this one and more to come.

Outdoor Party Planning Details

Begin with the guest list, and go from there!  How many people? Do you have sufficient, comfortable seating to accommodate about one-third of the group?   Do you have a great bar area, or is does this need to be added to your list? And then, on to the menu.   Are you serving snacks or a meal?  Do you have good equipment to do this? Paper, plastic, or pottery ware?  Is this a theme party?   What about the invitations, decorations, flowers?   Will you need or have others helping before, during, and after the event?   Will the yard, garden, pool area or lake front look nice? So many things to think about, but oh, the planning is part of the fun!

Ideas for Outdoor Parties

And do remember the extras! Music, appropriate for the group, adds tremendously to an event. Whether recorded oldies or a soft string quartet or guitarist, let your imagination run wild with music in the air. Do check city regulations regarding outdoor music, however, and be kind to let your neighbors know about the event if they are not on your guest list. If parking spaces are an issue, can you arrange for a central parking location and use golf carts, mini-buses or drivers in cars to take people back and forth? You may wish to specify “attire” on your invitation! Casual? Just say so! Ah, and last but not least, an outdoor party must always have a rain option! What are your ideas if that happens on the night of your party? Be prepared with Plan B!
