Outdoor Projects You Can Do On Your Own | Longacres Garden Centre

Are you the type who enjoys hosting parties at home or laid-back alfresco dinners? Then these simple projects are perfect for you. Make the most out of spring by lining up one outdoor party after another. From a grill night to a low-key ladies’ night, you’re sure to have the most fun outside and under the stars.

Hang Outdoor Lights

Outdoor lights are easy to install. Set up the perfect mood by putting up charming handmade lighting for your next outdoor party. Just screw in some hooks, drape the lights between them and make sure the end plug is near an electrical source. You will have the perfect lighters in no time, and all your guests are sure to gush over it.

Build a Mini-Bar

Whether it is for keeping your friends hydrated or encouraging them to have fun and have a laugh, an outdoor bar is your easiest bet. Shop around for an inexpensive tiered rolling cart to serve as the foundation for this outdoor mini-bar. Stock the heaviest mixers on the bottom, the plastic glasses or paper cups in the middle, and reserve the top for mixing. Extra points if you get to paint the cart to match your outdoor décor scheme.

Create a Cooking Nook

The mood is set and the drinks are mixed. All that is missing is the scrumptious meal you will all be sharing. Appoint a cooking and eating nook in a certain corner. If you and your family are into grilling, set up a barbecue grill to satisfy all your cravings. Find one that blends nicely with the rest of the space and secure the area with a simple fence around it.
