3 Ideas for Decorating a Backyard This Summer

Posted by Cassandra Birdd on

Summer is the perfect season for backyard gatherings, as the sun stays out longer and provides excellent weather. Before your loved ones arrive, enhance the yard’s natural beauty with seasonal decor. From installing elegant torches to hanging quaint lanterns, below are a few ways to beautify your backyard for the warmer months. 

How to Create the Perfect Summer-Themed Backyard

1. Install Torches

Many people enjoy hosting cookouts and other backyard events in the evening. However, when the sky grows dark, they must bring the party inside. Decorative torches offer a beautiful glow from artificial yet realistic flames, letting you and your loved ones safely spend hours under the stars. They also help to deter pests that annoy your guests and land on the food.

2. Set Up Wind Chimes lanterns

Wind chimes provide soothing melodies that complement the sounds of birds, crickets, and other natural music-makers. They’re available in a wide variety of colors and designs, allowing you to create the ideal summer atmosphere. Also, since various chimes make different sounds, you can add several chimes to form a gorgeous, outdoor orchestra. 

3. Get a Tile Planter

No backyard is complete without plants. Embrace the whimsy of summer with a tile planter. Featuring eye-catching patterns, tile planters let you show off your gardening skills while adding a dash of fun and color to your yard, which is perfect for parties. Consider using flowers that bloom in complementary colors to the tiles to provide a unique, matching aesthetic.

4. Add Garden Decorations

Even if you don’t have a garden, decorations will help you and your loved ones get in the summer spirit. Enjoy the relaxing flow of a ceramic fountain, or express your love for wildlife with animal figurines. For a touch of elegance, add a metal trellis for vines to climb. You can also hang some lanterns from the trees for a rustic, classic feeling.
