Backyard entertaining ideas to inspire your next outdoor event

by Susan Derlein 05/29/2024

There’s more to backyard entertaining than fun in the sun. The right layout, features and aesthetic choices can transform a normal outdoor get-together into a truly memorable occasion for your guests. If you’re in need of fresh backyard entertainment ideas, consider these options for your space:

Turn a greenhouse into an outdoor living room

You could be living in the winter in a location where temperatures are low, but you have a great option to keep cozy outdoors while also having good protection. Find a large greenhouse and fill it with comfortable furniture and potted plants. 

Even if it’s raining or snowing outside, you can still enjoy this beautiful indoor-outdoor space by using blankets, pillows, comforters or a patio heater. 

Channel a resort experience with a poolside dining area

If you have a pool in your backyard, consider some upgrades to make a luxurious resort in your own home. Set up an informal, comfortable bar and seating area for easy transition from swimming to snacking. 

Add a TV or comfy pillows to the mix, and you can create a custom resort feel right at home.

Create your own botanical garden

The right choice of plants can go a long way toward creating a great backyard entertainment space. Try surrounding your outdoor dining or seating area with elegant matching planters full of a variety of flowers and plants. Include your own herb garden for fresh outdoor cooking ingredients and extra greenery.

Whether you’re hosting a giant garden party or a cozy get-together, using these ideas as starting points will help you create a truly unique and memorable outdoor living experience.
