Provide Plenty of Seating


When extra guests arrive, remain cool as a cucumber! You can accommodate everyone in your outdoor space by keeping stools or poufs nearby. If you’re serving a few cocktails, have an area designated to before and after dinner relaxation. Lounge chairs and sectionals become a perfect spot to sit and catch up during happy hour!

Maintain a stylish look while offering your guests some relief from the heat and harmful UV rays! A cantilever style or auto tilt umbrella allows you to pivot the canopy as needed. For extra sparkle and shine, look for patio umbrellas with solar-powered LED lights!

Keep Summer Pests Away


Don't let pesky pests ruin your party! Include decorative citronella candles with the rest of your lighting scheme, as well as keeping mosquito repellent handy for your guests. To prevent critters from coming around in the first place, remove any standing water before your party.
