Chapter 2: P4

Creating a Party Worthy Outdoor Escape

It might be hard to imagine your backyard as an outdoor oasis when you're looking out the window to a February day, but there's no better time to start dreaming up your summer wishlist! Planning an alfresco entertaining set-up is the perfect thing to pull you through the last few weeks of winter and give you something to look forward to when the warmer weather rolls around. Whether you're looking to create a cozy outdoor seating area for family barbecues or want to go all out for a summer full of raucous pool parties, we can help you find the perfect pieces to thrive in any weather!

Outdoor friendly upholstery is one of our favorite ways to bring the comfort of the indoors to your backyard. The Agave slip-covered swivel chairs wrapped in a sky-blue Sunbrella fabric create a seat that's perfect for summer daydreaming. They're available to custom order in a rainbow of easily cleanable, fade-proof fabric options that repel water and resist the elements.

An outdoor entertaining area is the perfect place to get playful with colors and patterns. We love the bright punch of tangerine the Drum Roll ottomans add to this seating group, plus who doesn't love a soft spot to kick their feet up on a sunny summer day?! The Keats folding table completes this setting and makes a perfect little poolside bar to hold a cold tray of spiked lemonade to help you beat the heat!

Extra seating is just as important as a stocked fridge when it comes to summer entertaining! The Emmy folding iron chairs small-scale and classic bistro design make them a perfect convenient option for those unexpected guests. For an impromptu centerpiece you can put together on the fly, try floating some fresh flower petals in a galvanized or glass bowl surrounded by some fun patterned napkins. Summertime is all about taking time to relax and enjoy the simple things so why not let your decor reflect the same easygoing feeling?

Creating multiple seating areas allows you to take advantage of corners of your space that might otherwise go unused. Light, low-profile pieces like the Bodden outdoor chairs easily move from place to place so you can have a comfortable spot to sit whether you're looking for some shade or to get a little toasty in the sun. The pint-sized Tatum accent table is the perfect spot for a cold margarita and some fresh flowers by the pool.

Outdoor friendly upholstery isn't limited to chairs and poufs! Two of the Cypress slip-covered sofas create a conversation space that you can enjoy regardless of the weather. A vintage wedding table adds character and personality to this setting with a weathered seafoam green patina and antiqued metal detailing. A cluster of galvanized metal candlesticks create a beautifully simple centerpiece that can easily be topped with flickering candles when your guests arrive.

Finish your look with outdoor pillows (yes, those amazing black and white patterned beauties are safe for outside!) and add texture with some metal wall accents. Light-as-a-feather iron side tables like the Miley bring a structural element that will just look more beautiful over time when exposed to the weather. Check this outdoor friendly edition out here!

Fill in the gaps with some bright summery flowers to complete your space! Simple concrete planters add a grounding element that will allow your landscaping to shine.

Now it's time to slice up some limes, crack a beer and invite the neighborhood! Stop into Trove and start a game plan to create a little getaway right in your own backyard. From custom outdoor friendly upholstery to dining tables, planters and accents that can withstand any weather condition, we can help you bring your vision to life.

Happy Entertaining!
