How to Throw a Deck Party

Not only are the great outdoors in style but so are staycations, gourmet BBQ’s and networking. Why not combine these four great activities into one fun deck party? Once you purchase, furnish and clean up your deck, it’s time to christen it with a summer party that showcases your new outdoor pad.

This article from highlights several tips that can assist any novice party planner in creating the perfect deck party.

Clean up your Deck and Yard

If you spot any dirt or debris on your deck, please scrub it out.  There are low maintenance cleaners at your local home maintenance shops and by regularly maintaining a clean area, you will also have a happy deck. Also, most outdoor deck parties saunter over your yard, so make sure you cut your lawn and clean up any surpises your pets have left behind.

Environmentally Friendly Invites

Paper based invites tend to be costly and time consuming. Stick to Evites and you’ll spread the message faster, get faster responses but also be doing your part in the green initiative.


The best way to set the mood at any party is to have the right decor set in place. Opting for comfy chairs versus plastic ones, warm colored patio furniture, matching table linens, seat cushions, candles and throwaway rugs will entice and produce  friendly conversation to the party. In case the weather is a bit too humid, stick in some umbrellas, and citronella candles to protect guests from annoying bugs.

Serve Refreshments

Outdoor parties are meant to be outdoors so make sure you’re not spending most of your time in the kitchen. Serve easy to make drinks and pre-packaged beverages, finger foods, and fire up the grill. Now is the time to show off your wonderful barbecuing skills.

Set the Mood

If you have candles or outdoor lighting, use that around your deck. Also match any outdoor decorations  towards with whatever theme you develop, e.g., fourth of july, memorial day, etc.  Music can make a party lively or chill, so put on your newest Itune tracks and get the party started.
