Create Your Own Backyard Resort

Create Your Own Backyard Resort

As restrictions are beginning to lift and we are able to safely socialize once again, now is the perfect time to spruce up your outdoor entertaining area. At Wallauer Paint and Decorating Centers—celebrating their 100th Anniversary—they are here to help. Any space, no matter how small, can be transformed into an elegant oasis for al fresco dinner parties, neighborhood barbecues, or simply relaxing with friends and family.

Maybe this is the year you go all out with built-in appliances and a pizza oven to accompany your grill (don’t we wish?). Or maybe your space just needs some tweaking, like an outdoor carpet to “ground” your entertaining area or some fun new throw pillows in bright summery colors. Fabrics like Sunbrella are designed to withstand the elements, so if your cushions are in need of a pick-me-up, Wallauer can reupholster them for you with their extensive mix of colors and patterns to choose from.

Other easy options to help transform backyard space into your personal resort:

  • If you haven’t done so already, set up a fire pit—perfect for after-dinner lingering, making S’mores and all around ambience. Keep a basket of cozy blankets handy to warm up on chilly nights.
  • Install an outdoor projector so friends and family can gather and watch sports together—a tailgate party in your own backyard! Make sure to have plenty of tables around to hold the all-important half-time snacks!
  • Gazebos, tents, or other covered areas offer protection from sun or sudden downpours and can be decorated as ornately or simply as you desire.
  • Light up the night with a mix of copper torches and lanterns with glass and metal hurricane lamps. Fairy lights under your table umbrella and out in the garden create a charming twinkling effect while dining at night.
  • Add a calming auditory note with burbling fountains or a variety of wind chimes positioned where they can catch a bit of a breeze.
  • Bird feeders, baths and houses add a whimsical touch to your outdoor living spaces and ensure a steady stream of avian visitors and will provides hours of “entertainment” for you and your guests.
