Your home is not only a sanctuary where you can retreat from your busy professional lives; it’s a place to commune with friends and family. Which is why we take great care in “dressing up” our houses in case of any unexpected visits.
Whether a movie night outside or an outdoor slumber party for your kids, these cool ideas to transform your garden space will surely be a hit among your guests.
Outdoor movie screening
1. Outdoor movie screening – Take advantage of the cool weather outside by setting up a drop down, projector screen in the garden for a movie night outdoors. (You may also use stretched white fabric as a budget alternative.) This is great for watching movies in the evenings or even games in the privacy of your backyard. Dress up the rest of the space with little party bulbs for great ambiance. Place chairs or floor pillows for a more comfortable experience. Don’t forget the popcorn!
Outdoor slumber party
2. Outdoor slumber party – Depending on how big your backyard garden is, use tents or canopies to dress up the space for a fun slumber party for your kids. Simple, colorful blankets or kid’s size tents will do the trick. Cover the floor with thick blankets and lots of pillows. For added fun, create a makeshift fire pit where they can roast marshmallows.
3. Pool party – Too far away from the beach and can’t escape the oppressive heat? Then set up an inflatable pool in the backyard for the kids. Pair this fun feature with asprinkler for a fun rain shower. This is an easy set up for the summer vacations and both the young and the young-at-heart will undoubtedly have a great time. You can also opt to fill the inflatable pool with plastic balls for a DIY ball pit.
