Ideas for a springtime backyard bash

17 April, 2014

Invite your favorite people to spend some time with you in your beautiful backyard to eat, drink and celebrate spring! For some inspiration for throwing a sensational spring party, check out the ideas here:

Throw a theme party
Theme parties aren't just for kids! You can have a great time organizing a party based on any theme you can dream up. Try a Parisian fete with crepes, French pop music and a giant cardboard Eiffel Tower for photo ops. Or, a circus party with bunches of balloons, crazy colorful finger foods, bold bunting along the tables, and a game of horseshoes with kitschy prizes for your guests to take home with them.

Fancy garden party
Bring your friends and family together for a grown-up garden party. Get your outdoor furniture party-ready with brand-new cushions that pick up the colors sprouting up in the garden around you. RST Brands has a variety of pillow options, all made from Sunbrella® fabric, which is designed to be weather-, UV- and fade-resistant. Outdoor pillows are a great way to update the look of any room, even if it's outside! Instantly elevate your backyard party space with colors that will energize your guests. Decorate your outdoor dining table with a floor-length tablecloth and china instead of paper plates for an elegant outdoor event. Set a formal table and encourage your guests to dress up to make dining outside a fancy affair! 

Offer an exotic feast
You'll wow your guests by transporting them overseas with an exotic event. Morocco is a popular theme this spring, so make it your own! Decorate your yard with strings of light, paper lanterns, and even a few throw rugs to create a cohesive look. Rather than a formal dinner table, invite your guests to lounge on luxurious upholstered chairs or beanbags for an even more authentic feel. Serve everyone family style, with large platters of saffron chicken, vegetables and flatbread. 

Outdoor adventure party
You want your guests to feel comfortable wandering through your entire, custom-designed backyard oasis. Make it easy for them to set down a cocktail and chat anywhere, whether it's by the pool, among the flowers or on your patio or deck. Make sure there are plenty of bistro and accent tables to encourage exploration. You can even use your hard-top deck box as extra seating or a place to rest your plate while you converse.
