Summer will be here before we know it, and that means longer nights and warmer (okay, much warmer) weather. What better way to spend a summer day with family and friends than at an outdoor gathering? If you’re hoping to host abackyard soirée, here are some tips and tricks that will help things run smoothly.
*Prepare your yard
Be sure to clean up your yard before hosting guests. Mow the grass and pick up any tools, hoses, or toys.
*Choose the right seating (and have enough) Patio furniture with thick, comfy cushions are the best option for homeowners who frequent their outdoor space. When hosting a gathering, make sure you have enough seating. Benches and tree stumps are a casual, rustic way to add seating to your outdoor space. Make sure all the seating is clean of debris before your guests arrive.
*Keep guests comfortable
Guests will be more inclined to stay for the duration of the party if they are comfortable. In addition to having ample shade coverage, consider running a fan near the dining area to keep guests cool. You may also want to set out a basket with warm-weather essentials for guests to grab (think sunscreen, insect repellent, handheld fans, and iced spray bottles).
*Keep the menu simple Opt for recipes that can be prepared in advance and can withstand crowds and heat. Fresh grilled vegetables, pasta salads, and guacamole are all popular (and colorful!) choices.
Outdoor globe lights, lanterns, and LED candles are all great options for setting a relaxed summer atmosphere. Setting out candles with an open flame is a bit riskier — instead, use hurricane lanterns or jars to shield the flames.
*Keep music relaxed Set the right tone with a playlist that is easy and laid-back. You don’t want to overpower any conversations among guests. Make sure your playlist is long enough as not to repeat too many times while the guests are there.
*Display fresh cuts
Use flowers and foliage from your own yard as centerpieces. Arrange your fresh cuts in jars or buckets and set them out to brighten up your display.
Providing lawn games such as cornhole or croquet will keep your guests occupied and happy. Use butcher paper as a tablecloth and set out crayons for creative people of all ages.
*Keep pests away Be sure to protect food with mesh food coverings and light up citronella candles to keep bugs away. Eliminate any standing water in gutters or the bottom of flowerpots to keep mosquitoes from breeding there. Offer guests bug wipes and insect repellent.
*Create a beverage bar Make sure your guests are hydrated by preparing a beverage bar or cart stocked with the essentials. Include straws and PLENTY of ice.
*Opt for melamine Melamine is an affordable and durable option for outdoor dinnerware. Using the break-resistant plastic will help you reduce your waste and also keep the area clear of all those lingering paper cups and plates.
Now that you know the tricks for a perfect outdoor party, here are some outdoor patios currently on the market that are begging to have you as a host.

Summer is finally here and the temperatures are beginning to spare no mercy — a 100-degree-day is just around the corner! If you don’t want to endure another Texas summer without a pool, consider some of the fabulous options we have on the market. From lap pools to diving pools, we have refreshing features for everyone’s needs, all across North Texas.
A private home pool is one of the most popular features in our area thanks to the triple digit temperatures that we’re about to see again soon. But what’s better than a pool during the summer? A water feature that you can enjoy all year long.
While pools aren’t at a shortage around here, there’s something to be said for a backyard with a beautiful waterfall. The calming sound and the sight of water running is an amenity that never goes out of style.
Curious, we did a little research and here’s a little of what we found. This type of pool system maintains a small amount of salt in your pool’s water, which allows for easier regulation of chlorine levels. Saltwater pools are also said to have less damaging effects on on swimmers’ hair and skin than standard chlorine pools. That sounds like a trend we can definitely get on board with! Another plus? You can find saltwater pools all over D-FW!
