To maximize the square footage of your home and allow your guests to get some fresh air, create a seamless flow between your home's indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. If you're hosting an afternoon party, connecting these two spaces will make your home feel more expansive and light-filled. When hosting an evening gathering, opening up your doors to your back patio will encourage your guests to wander outside. An outdoor fireplace will create a welcoming spot for your guests if there's a spring chill in the air.
2. Set the ambiance with music.
Music will help determine whether the mood of your party will be relaxed and casual or a full-on dance party. If you appreciate the luxury lifestyle, investing in smart home technology will allow you to play your favorite music throughout your home with the click of your mobile device. You can even specify which rooms in your home that you want to hear music playing to prevent waking sleeping children. Stream music through a digital music service like Spotify or create a custom playlist for your party by asking guests to tell you their favorite song or music artist when they RSVP.
3. Plan a beverage bar.
You can free up time for yourself by creating a self-serve beverage bar station for your guests to help themselves to a refreshing spring cocktail. If you're choosing to connect your indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, include a second beverage bar in your outdoor kitchen. Understanding that not everyone will want an alcoholic beverage, infuse pitchers of water with citrus slices and fresh herbs to make the standard glass of water a little more exciting. Another idea is to create festive ice ahead of time by freezing raspberry or citrus slices with water in ice cube trays.
If you want to show off your new custom home, the beautiful spring weather provides you with the perfect opportunity to do so. Use these spring entertaining tips to honor the luxury lifestyle that your new home provides and host an enjoyable party with family and friends.
