Outdoor living can be just as important as setting up great entertaining spaces indoors.  Here are some of our suggestions for creating an environment to entertain and relax in.

Dining – Be sure to place outdoor dining convenient to the kitchen or outdoor kitchen.  It makes for much more relaxed entertaining when convenience is a factor.

Lighting – Hurricanes can be used to light walkways, set ambiance in a grouping for seating, or light a dining table.  Use the new LED flameless candles.  And you don’t have to buy multiple hurricanes, move them around based on your needs.  Outdoor hanging lanterns can also be set on a dimmer to set the mood.

Fabric – With the Arizona sun, using a durable outdoor fabric is a must!  We love Perennials.  It comes in a variety of colors and can be luxurious or vibrant, whatever suits the home.  We can help guide you to the right selection and order this to-the-trade only line.  Use an accent color from the house to base either the main or accessory pillows from.  This way, the inside and out are in harmony.

Seat Groupings – Create a conversation pit.  Be certain there is adequate seating and tables for the groups you like to entertain.  Extra wide and deep seating helps keep it casual.

Create A Hideaway – A shady, remote part of the garden can seem like a world away from the chaos of what’s going on in the rest of the yard on a busy day.  Set up a small table and chairs of a lounge chair and ottoman to enjoy these relaxing spaces.
