Spring has sprung in Northern Colorado, which means that summer is not far behind. That means it is time to break out your shorts, flip-flops, and sunscreen. Oh, and don’t forget to freshen up the elements of your backyard space, including your pergola, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor lighting. What? You don’t have a pergola, outdoor kitchen, or outdoor lighting? That’s a shame. If your backyard consists of a dated and cracked patio slab and rusty grill, then you probably don’t spend a whole lot of time outside in your yard. That is super sad as with summer approaching; you are probably thinking about throwing a few get-togethers with friends and family members. And since you don’t have a landscaped yard with all of the fun options, you will likely throw your parties indoors. Too bad, because outdoor parties are great. It’s time to consider calling your landscape design company for a consultation and quote before you decide to throw a party this summer.
Oh, The Parties You Will Throw
Some homeowners have to come up with a reason to throw a party, while others have events already scheduled that may require a party. For example, you might have a son or daughter who is expected to graduate high school or college this year, a perfect event that calls for a big party. In fact, there are several lifetime milestones that could crop up this year that call for a party, including a marriage, a promotion at work, or a special birthday.
The truth of the matter is that you don’t need a good reason to throw a party. In fact, you don’t need a reason at all; everybody loves a good party even if it doesn’t involve a reason. We are also willing to bet that if you asked your guests if they would prefer the party be held inside or outside, most of them would choose the latter. And we can’t blame them; there are several reasons why outdoor parties and other gatherings are far better than indoor events.
One of the biggest reasons to throw your party or other gatherings outside is because of all of the space. When you have gatherings held indoors, you are limited by walls, and it is impossible to spread out and enjoy yourself. Also, holding parties inside means that you have people roaming around various rooms trying to locate goodies or other party-goers. On the other hand, outdoor parties are wide open, and everybody is in the same outdoor space.
Yet another reason why parties are better outside is that there are fewer things to break. We are sure that you get nervous whenever your tipsy aunt gets too close to the crystal bowl you have perched on the shelf in the living room. When you throw your party outside, your collectibles are safe and sound inside.
Explore outdoor living spaces
Another reason to have your party or gathering held outside is all of the incredible views. Of course, this only applies if you have had work done in your yard. Without a doubt, your pergola or other outdoor elements will garner a lot of attention and admiration. And you get to act like a proud homeowner when you are talking to guests about your fabulous outdoor kitchen, fire pit, or water feature.
Let’s not forget about the beautiful garden full of outstanding and colorful flowers and other plants. Your yard is truly a beautiful landscape full of colors and eye-popping wonders. The best thing about your outdoor space is that you don’t have to spiff anything up before your guests arrive; everything looks great all of the time.
The Smells and More
You might not realize it, but you could be nose blind in your own home. What this means is the smells that are in your home might not even affect you. That is, you might have a litterbox that can smell a little bad sometimes, but you are used to it and don’t even notice it. On the other hand, you could have odors throughout your house that reflect what you had for dinner last night or what type of makeup remover you use. The bottom line is that your home is full of various scents, and not all of them are necessarily good. But this is not a concern for people who throw their parties outside where the air is crisp, clean, and with a hint of flowers and freshly cut grass.
Lastly, while throwing a party outside does still mean you will have to clean up afterward, it is likely that you will have less to clean. Better still, many of the clean-up chores are far easier to execute outside. For example, cleaning the concrete patio is as easy as spraying it off with a power washer or a simple hose and sprayer. You can expect to spend a whole lot more time cleaning up after a party that was held indoors.
