The heat is on! Time to take the party outdoors. Whether you’re ready or not, swimsuit season is coming. Soon you’ll be lounging under shady palms, turquoise waves and white sand caressing your toes. Or, more accurately for our area, you’ll find yourself kicking up pebbly Midwest sand, carrying folding chairs to the charming, less-turquoise waters of Raccoon River.
Warm weather also brings the glorious return of sticky popsicle fingers and aroma of juicy grilled meat wafting on the breeze. Your calendar may already resemble a Jackson Pollock with scribbled reminders of Father’s Day grill outs, birthday get-togethers and graduation parties.
Here are six party themes along with the perfect furniture for any event that comes your way.
Party Theme: Brunch Buffet
- Food and drink trays: Save guests from impromptu juggling acts with cups, plates, napkins and utensils. A tray table set is a fantastic example of convenient, movable surface space and a great solution for small spaces.
- Comfy outdoor seating: Create relaxing, inviting appeal with cushioned seating where guests can lounge comfortably while conversing.
- A rug: Soft outdoor rugs are a pleasure for bare toes versus the cool, damp morning ground and can make a bold yet simple design statement.
- Coffee: Because, mornings.
Party Theme: Afternoon Tea Party
- Comfortable table seating: Pinky-up sipping and snacking requires elbow space. Our Agio outdoor dining set provides friendly closeness and ample personal area.
- Tiered serving tray: Fancy finger-food deserves a fancy setup. Create a lovely look with tiered trays for tea biscuits, scones, tarts or bite-sized sandwiches.
- Shaded space: Afternoons are heating up, so keep your guests cool under the shade of an umbrella. Our Treasure Garden umbrella even has a tilt feature so you can keep cool in targeted shade.
- Floral details: Bring color, personality and an aromatic touch to your party with natural décor like a blooming table centerpiece or one of our floral-inspired outdoor rugs.
Party Theme: Evening Snack
- Illuminating décor: When the sun goes down, it’s time to light up. Ignite your nightlife—and maybe even your romantic suave—with aromatic candles, table lanterns or outdoor string lights.
- Fire pit: Make a place to gather ‘round for roasting hot dogs, kabobs, s’mores or any other food you can put on a stick.
- Drink cart: Your drinks will be stored in style with a unique, convenient beverage rack or bin.
- Starlight umbrella: Brighten the evening with the magic of built-in umbrella lights, no stringing up or igniting required. Our Treasure Garden Starlight collection has several colors to choose from.
Party Theme: Grill Out
- Casual seating: Ketchup drips and potato chip grease? No problem with easy-to-wash Poly-wood furniture. Its the perfect laid back seating, and you don’t substitute comfort with the smooth gliding and high-backs of our Amish Outdoor sofa or any other pieces featured in the Classic collection.
- Beverage cooler: Chill out with chilled drinks. Keep beverages cool and collected with an ice-filled bin or insulated drink cart under the umbrella’s shade.
- Condiment table: Keep food toppings easy to access on a spacious buffet-style surface, like a rustic A-frame table or Polywood outdoor serving set.
Party Theme: Kid-Friendly
- Easy entertainment: Think piñata-making, water balloons, lawn Twister…keep the kiddos entertained with easily-prepared play.
- Bright, playful colors: Keep the mood cheery with vibrant, lively colors from fun pillows to festive end tables to bright umbrellas for extra sun protection.
- Washable seating: Sticky fingers are no big deal with our colorful collection of Adirondack seating. Versatile poufs also create perfect seating for small tushes.
Party Theme: Graduation
- Nostalgia pieces: Take guests back with tiered displays of medals and awards, step shelves of memorabilia or strings of hanging photos.
- Extra nesting tables: With versatile, space-saving tables, you can provide guests with plenty of convenient surface space for food and drinks without sacrificing personal backyard space.
- Outdoor sectional: Create the perfect balance of spacious comfort and laid-back openness for large get-togethers.
