Now that the days are longer and the weather is warmer, it’s the perfect time to decorate your back yard so it’s ready for future cozy hangouts with your family and friends, or even just a party with one. There are many elements that make a great outdoor space. From furniture and lighting to pools and pillows, we’ve rounded up 14 items to brighten up your yard so you can spend all day (and night) outdoors.
Helios Firebowl from Skagerak
Nothing is as cozy as making a fire and gathering for nightly chats, nightcaps, and s’mores for the little ones (okay, most adults too). This cast iron brazier doubles as a fireplace and grill (it is designed to provide optimal airflow for firewood or charcoal) so there is no piece of outdoor furniture in your yard.
FireGlobe Log Holder by Eva Solo
When you talk about fire, keep all of your firewood close at hand with this sculptural wood holder that will add a modern element to your space.
Slowdown Studio Pool by Mylle
Mylle’s pools are always sold out and we understand why. The punchy prints add an artful focal point to the backyard while also providing a fun way to cool off for everyone on those really hot days. Trust us, think ahead and move yours forward!
At your side table by Skagerak
Keep your drinks, phones, board games, appetizers – anything, actually – near and above the floor with a handy end table like this aluminum table that is great for both outdoor and indoor use.
Frio LED ice bucket with loudspeaker from Koble
This ice bucket will be the life of your next party. It keeps your drinks cool and delivers music by connecting to your smart device. Did we mention the color change settings? Mood lighting, drinks, music – you’re done!
Uma Mini Light and speakers from Pablo Designs
You can also add light to your party with this dimmable modern lantern with 360 ° high fidelity surround sound. Personally, I use mine all the time, outside and inside, because the sound quality is excellent and I like being able to adjust the lighting based on how far into the evening the party goes.
Outdoor Color Block Cushions by Jillian Rene Decor
Add a pop of color to your patio furniture with this pillowcase design. Handcrafted from high quality outdoor fabrics, it will have minimal wear and tear from making it cozy night after night.
Overlap table and Bank of Skagerak
I love a good dining table and bench setting because it feels less formal and more intimate. The overlap set is made from powder-coated steel and red cedar (a wood that is naturally durable and resistant to rot and pests). It features a modern set of legs that looks timeless as the seasons change.
Block Color Dome Hanging Planter from Capra Designs
Hanging planters do not have to be banished into the house. Find a permanent place for an outside area so that you have some greenery near the party as natural decor.
18 “Circle Hanging Planter from NewMade LA
We also love this model for its graphic design that pops up against any backdrop …
Geometric Wall Planters from Ohio Workshop
… Or this for a modern way to showcase your air plants or succulents!
Soirée Peony + Suede Candle on the roof of Anecdote Candles
Lighting candles for your tabletop is another way to add mood lighting and this scent describes the occasion perfectly.
Cable knit blanket from Obakki
When the night gets cooler, have some blankets handy for you and your guests so you don’t have to drag in the party.
Stone rug by Heymat
Once you move the party indoors, this outdoor rug, inspired by nature and Japanese zen gardens, can be used like a doormat to keep the dirt out.
