5 Easy Tricks To Jazz Up Your Outdoor Areas
Make gatherings even more fun with these fun ideas
Aside from inside a home, outdoor receiving areas are great places to spend time with your loved ones in. This activity is much more fun if your outdoor area looks stylish and fun. Here are some fun, easy, and budget-friendly DIY ideas for décor you can use to add oomph and personality to your garden or lanai.
1. Create a mini garden
There is nothing quite like greenery to improve a space and a person’s wellbeing at the same time. Plants have been proven to have positive impacts on our moods, allowing us to feel more relaxed and focused. Create a mini garden in your outdoor area with whatever kinds of plants you may have. You can even make this a bonding opportunity for the family—invite everyone to exercise their creativity by helping out in decorating pots for your plants!
2. Add a colorful succulent plant container
Succulents, which are very trendy nowadays, can also serve as great décor pieces for your outdoor area. Create containers for your succulents using bowls or pots or even small terrariums. These containers will be instant eye candy for your guests, not to mention easy to take care of!
3. Make DIY light fixtures
The right lighting can improve the overall look of any space, and that includes your outdoor receiving area. If you want to veer away from the traditional, boring outdoor lights, you can make your own. Using old bottles, jars, and even metal cans, you can create fun light fixtures that will go with the look of your outdoor area.
4. Welcome guests with a personalized doormat
When you invite guests over to your home, one of the first things they interact with is a doormat. Take the chance to make a great impression right away with a doormat that will show off your personality. For similar doormats (there's a "Mabuhay!" one) go to Etsy.
5. Soften up with pillows
Of course, you want to make your guests as comfortable as possible when they visit your home. Accessorize your outdoor receiving area with some cute pillows. But remember to find pillows made of water-resistant fabric to ensure that they stay safe even when exposed to wind and rain.
