With the arrival of December, the meetings begin to close the year and there is less and less for the Christmas and New Year holidays. What better way to take advantage of this time than with a good dinner in the garden with a very simple and inexpensive decoration.
It doesn’t matter if the exterior is large or small, there are always ways to enhance the space. There is nothing like a outdoor dinner mainly when it is hot and in the case of not having a yard, the following ideas can also be applied on a terrace or a spacious balcony.
Illuminate the garden space
The key to a party or dinner is not to illuminate with lamps as in the home, since the idea is to create a subdued and intimate atmosphere. One of the most popular ideas is the garland of lights (like those used in Christmas trees) or those that have a sphere, but that are white so that the whole setting remains the same.
You can also get bar lights, which are very resistant and can be left all year long as they are very aesthetic. Another way to illuminate an outdoor dinner is by placing candles as centerpieces or lanterns on each step of the stairs (in the case of not having a ladder, place it in the corners).
Betting on flowers and balloons never fails. Buy decorative vases and bouquets of the same species, but they can vary in their colors. As for balloons, those with led light are currently in fashion, a good option to continue lighting the environment, and they can be found at Mercado Libre or Amazon.
You can also place paper garlands or flags that go from one end to the other and if the table uses a bench instead of chairs, you can put decorative pillows so that the diners are more comfortable. If it is a dinner for many people, a good option is to place a card with each person’s name on the plate.
People who have a pool should not miss the opportunity to show it off: buy some floating candles to illuminate it, fill it with many balloons of different sizes, use inflatables in different ways and you can also add some flowers that remain on the surface.
Thinking the table
The key to a good dinner is to have the menu already prepared or at least the most important thing so as not to waste time with the guests. You can place on the table cloth napkins folded in the shape of a fan, a tablecloth or placemat, the best crockery you have and decorate the free spaces with rose petals.
Use a tent
In the case of wanting to do something original and romantic, the idea of the tent is the best: you just have to get some wooden supports to make a pointed roof, a large sheet and some cushions to place inside. For dinner you can place wooden pallets, one on top of the other, and have a meal sitting on the floor by candlelight.
Decorating a garden to surprise with a meal or to enjoy a party is very simple, you just have to be creative and thus you will spend the lowest possible budget. In the case of having little space, a bar of drinks can be placed so that everyone can serve themselves or make some food fingers.
