Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner, we are sharing everything you need to host a beautiful outdoor patio brunch. There is no surprise that we love creating a beautiful environment – decorating the outdoors is no expectation!
No matter if you have a small outdoor patio or looking to style your outdoor living space on a reasonable budget. We are sharing all of our must-have tips to get you on your way to hosting the perfect Sunday brunch!
Just imagine, hosting your very first Sunday brunch, enjoying the beautiful weather with all of your girlfriends to admiring your new outdoor patio decor! Sounds delightful, doesn’t it?
How Can I Decorate My Patio on a Budget?
The hardest part might be not knowing where to start. Furthermore, you may be wondering, how can I decorate my patio on a budget?
First, take a look at what you already do have! For example, you may already have throw pillows and blankets, right? Start there and pay attention to what colors these items are.
Based upon what you have gathered from around your house, you can start to sense a “theme” or more importantly, a color palette!
For example, you notice these accent pillows are shades of blue. This is now your main color to spread throughout your patio decor!
How Should I Arrange My Patio Furniture?
The next step in creating your perfect outdoor patio brunch is deciding how you should arrange your patio furniture. There are two different options for this set up in our opinion.
An Outdoor Patio for Drinks & Snacks
This outdoor patio arrangement is ideal for drinks and snacks with your family and friends. This is a great option if you don’t have a lot of space in your outdoor living space but are looking to entertaining your guest in your outdoor living space.
This outdoor seating arrangement is the perfect happy hour set up or even if you host a book club with your close friends. Be sure to have a coffee table in the center so everyone can easily access the appetizers and cocktails!
An Outdoor Patio for Sunday Brunch
The more formal option for hosting weekly Sunday Brunch with girlfriends or even hosting a special event or holiday. This outdoor patio arrangement is ideal for having an outdoor sit-down meal enjoying the beautiful weather.
An important tip of where to place outdoor patio furniture is to remember the sun! We don’t want our guest or food overheating under the beautiful weather. Be sure to place your patio table arrangement under a shaded and cool area.
