Easy Outdoor Entertaining

Posted: Updated:
Summertime….and the livin’ is easy! Here are some stylish and (easy!) ideas to create a welcoming outdoor space that is perfect for family gatherings, backyard BBQs and summertime entertaining.
  • Furnish your outdoor space just like you would your kitchen or living room—use pieces that you love.
  • Create a romantic “Table for Two” with a Pike Nursery Bistro Set
  • Choose a color palette to add vibrancy
  • Create a comfortable, cooler space by including an umbrella
  • Add comfort & style with outdoor toss pillows
Choose from solid colors, stripes or patterns or try mixing them.
  • Help define & soften the space with groups of container gardens
If you want privacy, use taller container gardens
  • Add soothing sound with a water feature!
Turn an urn, a birdbath or a pretty pot into a gurgling fountain.
  • Add finishing details like lanterns
Functional, easy & decorative
  • Make the space work for you: we included edible plants like lemons & figs
  • Consider a pot of fragrant, night blooming jasmine
