If so, you may need to shop around to provide the commodities (besides food and drink) that will make your outdoor bash stand out amongst the rest. Below are five things you’ll need to throw a rockin’ spring or summertime get-together.

Chairs and Tables

Be sure to have the proper amount of chairs and tables for your guests to sit and enjoy their food and beverages. Provide comfortable furniture with a summertime feel — with bright pops of color, interesting textures, and patterns, furniture feels more fun when the temperature rises.

Proper Lighting

Have a mixture of lighting to add to the outdoor atmosphere. Garden lights, paper lanterns, candles, and more can create unique lighting, especially when a few of these options are combined with one another. 

Bug Banishers

Although insects are a natural part of the great outdoors (and don’t get us wrong, we’re thankful for many of them) they’re often not welcomed guests at our gatherings. In the days leading up to an event, be sure to get rid of all standing water in the surrounding area, as it is a breeding ground for mosquitos, the peskiest spring and summertime insects. Consider lighting a few citronella candles to keep them at bay. These will perform the job while giving off a natural glow to pair with your other lighting choices.

The Optimal Speaker System

While what’s on the playlist is your personal preference, be sure to have a stereo system where people can enjoy music at a comfortable level of listening. Instead of playing music at a loud volume from one speaker, disperse it from multiple speakers at different locations, and at a lower level of sound. This will make your playlist that much more enjoyable.  


Technically “decor” is not one thing alone, but what’s a party without a little? One doesn’t have to go overboard when it comes to this. When shopping, think decorative and functional, for example, a basin to hold drinks.
