The great outdoors is a great place to entertain – even when the weather turns chilly. Just ask Amy Romero. The founder of Crazy Chic Design knows that thinking outside the box is the key to hosting successful parties, whatever the season. Read on to discover her innovative ideas for year-long fun in the sun.
Amy’s Tip #1 – Transform the Table with Holiday Sparkle
Warm up outdoor dining by draping faux-fur throws on chairs and benches. Then, add warmth and holiday sparkle to your outdoor oasis with candles and twinkle lights. Create organic centerpieces featuring fruit, vegetables and other natural elements. Finally, use warm-hued plates, napkins and glassware to bring in the colors of the season. Think green, gold, cranberry and brown
Amy’s Tip #2 – Elevate the Bar
Invite guests to post up at the bar in comfort and style. Tall tables, chairs and stools provide the best view of the festivities. To make it truly special, create a signature cocktail or mocktail for the party. Then capture the essence of the season in a glass by adding a sliced pear or pomegranate arils to mulled wine or sparkling cider. Think warm spices, cranberries, maple, apples, figs and woodsy elements
Amy’s Tip #3 – Turn Over the Textiles
Change out your all-weather pillows to express that winter feeling. It’s a quick, easy, affordable way to refresh your outdoor space. Choose bold, eye-catching designs and classic styles that mix and match in warm, moody colors. Think charcoal, brown, burgundy and emerald green.
