With June in full swing, it’s officially outdoor party season. While there’s naturally less pressure planning outdoor get-togethers, getting your space ready to go for parties (both planned and impromptu) now will guarantee you get to enjoy them – not just plan them – all summer long.
First up on the to-do list: prepping the space. You’ll want to freshen up your landscaping to create a colorful and welcoming atmosphere (while you’re at it, consider planting greenery that wards off mosquitoes, like lavender, geraniums and rosemary). Your outdoor furniture may have been covered all winter, but you’ll want to give it a thorough cleaning to clear dirt and bugs that crept in. Once this dirty work is out of the way, you’re ready to move on to the fun stuff.
