Original Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining

Author: Alana Goldberg

Summer and fall are perfect times to take advantage of being outside. As hot days lead to cooler nights in many areas, an outdoor fireplace is an excellent focal point when hosting guests.

Dinner Party
A classic outdoor dinner party is an enjoyable and sophisticated way to connect with friends and family. This Pinterest board is a great place to start. Alternatively, try a more casual potluck with themed cuisine. Delicious and easy ideas include Italian, Greek and Mexican.

Game Night
Game night is a fun way to bond with friends in a casual environment. Check out Telestrations, Funemployed and Monikers for engaging group activities to enjoy around an outdoor fireplace.

Craft Night
Painting canvases with simple, yet beautiful designs is currently a popular trend. Why not bring this artistic activity outside? Though a little extra lighting may be required, painting next to an outdoor fireplace creates a desirable ambiance. Maybe it will even bring out hidden creative talent!

Pet Pampering
Ready for something new and original? Throw a pet party! Invite neighbors over with their furry family members. Everyone will enjoy the cozy, pet-friendly atmosphere. Just be sure to take proper precautions to keep the animals safe around the fireplace.
