5 Musts for the Perfect Backyard Party

January 31, 2016

With warm temperatures, good friends and these backyard "musts", your summer party is bound to be a big hit!


1. Cozy up with a Fire Pit.


While a built-in fire pit is our #1 favorite, they aren't the most affordable option and don't work for every backyard. There are plenty of great portable units that work on decks and patios just about anywhere.

We love Crate & Barrel's Mason Fire Pit -

a unique design with a tiny footprint

just right for small spaces!

Looking for something a little more Earth-Friendly? Try this Eco-Smart
ventless fireplace that uses bioethanol,
a renewable liquid fuel that burns cleanly and efficiently, so you get cozy warmth without smoke, sparks or mess. (Room and Board)


2. A Picnic Table!


The ultimate seating option for friends of all sizes!

3. String Lights & Candles


As the sun sets, the twinkle of (very affordable!) string lights and candles add a magical quality to any backyard get-together.

4. A bar cart


Give your guests a place to quench their thirst!  We love thisd bar cart with and extension top that allows room for drinks on ice.

The Crate & Barrel Regatta Bar Cart will

have a crowd around it all night.


5. Accessories!

Keep the bugs out and your guests relaxedwith some of our favorite summer backyard accessories.




 Love this large galvanized drink bucket,

with a handy bottle opener too!

No backyard's complete without the ultimate place to relax.
