Wicker is sturdy, weather-resistant, and attractive. So, it is ideal for all of your outdoor entertaining needs.

The Bar

No party is complete without beverages. A stylish way to serve drinks to your guests is by using an outdoor bar. One advantage of having an outdoor bar is that it is easy for everyone to gain access to while they are mingling in your outdoor party area. Guests can easily get whatever beverages they desire and get back to the party without any hassle. Also, no one will need to traipse inside the house to get the drinks that are needed. So, your wicker bar helps you keep your house clean as well. To assure your guests are not inconvenienced, it is imperative that your bar is well stocked.

If you are going to have people visiting your home, you need to have a place for people to sit. As a good host, you do not want your guests to be subjected to the old-style folding chairs with the straps that are starting to fray and come off the frame. You need to have something that is sturdier, something that can withstand the heavy use a party can cause. Wicker furniture is a far better choice to use in your outdoor entertaining area. Wicker furniture has improved over the past few decades. It is no longer the cheap, tacky and flimsy materials that needs to be replaced every few years. Today’s wicker furniture is not only strong, but it is also attractive and gives a deck or patio a contemporary appearance. Also, there are many choices for wicker seating. Not only are there wide and comfortable single-person chairs, but there are also loveseats, couches, and even sectionals.


One of the most important aspects of any party is the food that is served. Not only do you have to think about the food you are going to serve, but you also need to give consideration to where your guests are going to eat. Wicker furniture is the perfect choice for a dining space for your outdoor party. A beautiful outdoor dining set, like the kind you can find at Design Furnishings, will be the perfect addition to your outdoor living space. It is also ideal for you and your guests to sit and enjoy a meal. The chairs in these sets have high backs and are the perfect height so everyone can reach the table with ease. You can also get cushions that make the dining chairs even more comfortable.

The tables are large and offer enough space for everyone to place their plates down without being crowded. Also, wicker tables clean up nicely, so there is no need to fret if someone at the party spills food or drinks on the table. Dining tables come in a variety of round, square, and rectangular shapes, so there is surely something to fit every space and every style. Also, those who want a little variety in the seating arrangements can also opt for a long bench in addition to the chairs.


No party is complete without some ambiance. Creating the right mood and atmosphere can make or break any party. So, take some steps to make sure your party is as good as it can be. It is not difficult to create the right vibe at your party. First, you need to make sure you have the right music. Music can be tricky because everyone has different tastes. There is no exact science for choosing the right music, as there are many factors that go into it. But, there are some steps you can take to keep you on the right track when you are choosing your playlist. Once the music is set, make sure your decor presents the atmosphere you want to achieve.

There are many ways you can go with the decor, but it all depends on what type of party you want to throw. Regardless of the decor you choose, every outdoor party is improved with the presence of a fire pit. A fire pit not only acts as a heat source when the weather is cool, but it also creates an instant opportunity for conversation. People love to congregate by the fireside to have casual conversations. Plus, having a fire pit also opens up the opportunity to roast marshmallows, an activity everyone can embrace.

Spring is just around the corner. Do not hesitate; start planning your first outdoor party of the season now. If you need to upgrade your outdoor furniture, Design Furnishings can help you create a look your guests will envy.
