  • Celebrate Winter Holidays Outdoors this Year

    Outdoor gatherings don’t need to come to an end with the arrival of winter because your deck or backyard can serve as an entertaining space all year long. By simply ensuring warmth for your guests, and providing great food, drinks, and décor, you can still have great parties, especially during the holiday season.

    The most important element of an outdoor holiday party this winter is heat. If you don’t provide an effective means to keep everyone comfortable, the event may end before it begins. Guests may leave or take solace inside your home instead. Some options to consider include portable patio heaters that come in standing versions, tabletop models, and hanging heaters. Make sure they are dispersed throughout the entire space so guests are not cramped in a small area. Additional warming elements include fire pits and providing blankets, jackets, gloves, hats, and mitten to guests as they arrive.
