Patios aren’t just for summer! Fall is the perfect time to entertain outdoors on your patio. It just takes some planning and forethought to create a perfect cozy environment.
How can you create the perfect fall patio environment? You’ll want to consider these four things:
The days get shorter in the fall, but the party doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down! The right lighting can create a warm and friendly environment. You can choose something rustic, like outdoor candles and torches, or go more refined with stylish fixtures. Whatever you choose, be sure to consider the mood you want to create. Don’t go too bright, but instead aim for a warm glow that makes people feel at home.
Fall in Indiana can be hot, freezing, or somewhere in the middle, but you’ll want to be prepared for crisp and chilly evenings. To keep your guests warm and comfortable, consider a fire pit or outdoor fireplace. Fixtures like these are an excellent investment that will allow you to enjoy your patio well into the fall, and then again in early spring.
Your guests won’t be comfortable without a place to sit! Lots of seating options help your patio feel intimate and cozy. But, you don’t have to run out and purchase a ton of lawn furniture! A short garden wall looks great and can double as seating for friends and family. Strategically placing a wall around your fire fixture helps you maximize your space and creating a truly inviting environment.
One of the great things about living in Indiana is enjoy the beautiful fall foliage every year. Why not bring those beautiful colors into your patio area? Be intentional with your landscaping and choose plants and trees that look lovely even as they transition to the fall season. If you’re on a budget, something as simple as fall mums in decorative planters can really brighten up your space.
