When you buy one of the Frisco homes for sale in a community like Richwoods Hollow, one of the things you may want do after moving into your new home is entertain family and friends. Sometimes you’ll want to have everybody inside, but when the weather is nice, it’s great to entertain outdoors. Here are a few ideas to help you and your guests enjoy a memorable day or evening outside.
Play Games – One way to have fun during a backyard barbecue is to play some games. Lawn darts, croquet, and Frisbee golf are good options. Or kids and adults alike can have hours of fun playing outdoorYahtzee or bunco with some giant dice.
Outdoor lighting – Keep the party going after dark with the help of attractive outdoor lighting for your patio. The choices are endless, depending on the mood you want to create. For instance, you can choose to install neon deck lights or colored flood lights, display white candles, oil lamps or use string lights.
Fire Pit – Another way to enjoy the outdoors at night is with the addition of a fire pit. These outdoor accessories can be used year-round, and many can be found for under $100. One way to win extra points with your guests, is to set up a s’mores station around the fire pit.
Buffet Meal – Keep mealtime informal and fun by setting up an outdoor buffet. Create “stations” throughout your backyard that offer different appetizers and dishes to your guests. This strategy will help keep guests moving and mingling around during your event.
Garden Centerpieces – If you plan a more formal dinner for family and friends, use flowers and greenery from your garden to create unique and inexpensive centerpieces for the table.
Grill Some Fish – Nothing tastes quite better than fresh fish hot off the grill. Don’t be intimidated by this prospect. Using a nonstick grill basket makes grilling a whole fish as easy as flipping a hamburger. Stuff your favorite fish with fresh herbs and lemon slices, place it in the basket, and then close, lock and grill.
Create a Kids’ Zone – Make your kids and their friends feel right at home by creating a special area in your backyard just for them. Have outdoor games on hand, or create an obstacle course using old wooden logs that will serve double-duty as a lovely flower garden accent.
