A great way to celebrate the season is to host an outdoor Thanksgiving dinner. If this sounds intriguing, there are several things you’ll need to do in order to get ready. Preparing your patio furniture is just one thing that will make your outdoor event a success. Here are some things to put on your to-do list.

  • Determine the location of your gathering so you can move your patio furniture if need be. Depending on the weather, you may want to host your party inside an enclosed deck or near your outdoor fireplace to ensure everyone stays warm.
  • Clean your patio furniture thoroughly by washing it down with a solution of hot soapy water.
  • Consider swapping your existing cushions for autumn-colored ones to add a festive touch
  • Add some bright orange, red or gold throws to the backs of chairs for your guests to cover up with
  • Fill a few glass jars with some colored stones and then place a large candle inside. Several candles placed in strategic spots around your deck will help give off warmth.

After preparing your patio furniture, you may want to provide a wind block for your seating area. This can be done by arranging potted plants, hanging outdoor curtains, or even using a folding screen. Be sure to add a few pumpkins, gourds and some Indian corn, and you’re ready for entertaining.

An outdoor Thanksgiving dinner is sure to be more memorable than one hosted inside for a number of reasons. For even more ideas on preparing your patio furniture for the holidays, contact us.
