With the Super Bowl and Daytona 500 both behind us, it’s time to find another reason to have a party. Getting together with family, friends and your other favorite people is one of life’s finest pleasures. Having a great deck means you have space for entertaining. The arrival of spring weather is a great reason to celebrate.
To have an awesome deck party, you need to keep the three s’s in mind: safety, seating and snacks. Deck parties don’t have to be complicated. You need a simple reason, like “Hey, it’s nice enough to enjoy the deck!” and you’re good to go. Let’s take a look at the three essentials:
S is for Safety: If you’re going to be entertaining people on your deck, you want to be sure the deck is in good shape. This means no loose boards for people to trip on, no broken or uneven porch steps, and no missing or broken railings. If you have any issues your deck’s safety, talk to your Framingham MA deck designers – they can take care of any repairs you need, and if it’s time for a deck upgrade, make that happen too.
S is for Seating: Your guests are going to need a place to sit during your awesome deck party. Patio furniture is one option. You can also have your deck designer create integrated seating for you, with built in benches and other comfy sitting spots for guests. Some custom seating features can be child sized, which is great news if your family and friends group includes lots of little ones.
S is for Snacks: Part of the fine of being outdoors is eating outdoors. You can’t go wrong with a classic like burgers cooked on the grill. Many families like to take things to the next level with an outdoor kitchen. Choose the menu you find most appealing. Making food safety simple – outdoor kitchens often contain mini fridges or a strategic space for coolers.
