Will you be hosting a backyard party this summer? You don’t have to wait for the Fourth of July to have fun in your backyard. If this is the first time you’re going to be hosting a party, then you may want to put some of these terrific tips into use. They will definitely improve your party game!
Although your backyard may be a great place to hang out in it may not be a great place to stand around in. You want to make sure all your guests have a place to sit. Even if you pull out some of the chairs from inside the house, you still might need to supplement your seating with rentals. It’s easy to get folding chairs, tables and even a bigger grill from a party rental place.
Breakout the Christmas Lights
There’s a good chance your party may go into the evening. When that happens, you want to make sure there is some nice lighting. Your Christmas lights could do the trick. You can string them up throughout the backyard and when it gets dark, flip the switch.
Keep the Mosquitoes Away
One of the most effective ways to keep mosquitoes away is with a fan. It may seem counterintuitive to turn a fan on when you’re outside but having a fan on low setting can keep the mosquitoes from landing. A tabletop fan is also a good idea for your food area. A week before the party starts, make sure there’s no standing water in things like flowerpots or birdbaths. This is where mosquitoes breed. As for repellent, you can’t go wrong with the old standby citronella candles. Get several and spread them throughout the backyard.
Spread Out the Music
If you are using a boom box or an iPod dock, then you want to put it above your level so that it’s not blasting directly at your friends years. You may also want to turn it toward the side of the house. That way the music will bounce back and spread out more evenly. If you’re using speakers, then try to spread them out as far as possible to generate the sound. As for your playlist, you should have enough music to last for at least five hours. Stick to the fun summer classics.
Clear the Clutter
Before you set up for your party you definitely want to get the yard clear clutter. Not only could there be a lot of palm fronds or fallen tree branches to remove but also some bigger items. Taking down the swing set or playground set that the kids aren’t using will open up a lot more space. Clearing away yard clutter is a perfect job for Junk King Sacramento. They’ll send over a two-man team and a big truck capable of holding whatever it is you want to get rid of.
