  • Be ready with the lights

Make sure your spot is near an area with outdoor lighting or you can prepare candles or battery-operated votives once the sun goes down. How about crafting your own outdoor lighting? Click here for ideas that you can try.

  • Repurpose an old sofa

If you are expecting friends and a lot of guests, you may bring out some of your sofas to use as seating against a long picnic table.

  • Bring in a cart

A bar cart is a handy piece to bring in food, drinks, and dinnerware in one go. Remember to lock the wheels once you've finished serving the food! Place it one corner so guests can get essentials when needed.

  • Prepare the playlist and speakers

Set the mood by having relaxing songs ready. You may blast it out with an elements-friendly speaker dock.

  • Make your guests feel comfortable

Be ready with extra throw pillows or floor pillows for extra comfort.
