With the summer approaching, we can’t wait for the backyard parties and outdoor celebrations! The gorgeous weather makes it the perfect time of year to host a small get-together with family and friends. Get inspired by some of our favorite summer backyard party ideas, whether you are celebrating a birthday, family milestone, the 4th of July or simply need an excuse to gather with loved ones.

Backyard Movie Night

Take a break from the news with a backyard movie night. It is a great way to entertain both kids and adults, with plenty of new movies currently being offered on demand. Create a casual and cozy environment, with our Ellison Collection! You can also create interactive areas like a snack bar for refreshments and treats, using our White Wash Barrel Barnwood Bar.

Kids Birthday Parties

The summertime is a great opportunity to host a kid’s birthday party, including those that were previously postponed. Keep it family-focused with fun, colorful rentals and by creating areas for activities. You can also incorporate child-size rentals, like our gorgeous Children’s Fruitwood Farm Table and Cross-back Children’s Chairs.

Backyard Tailgates

While we can’t attend sporting events in person, we can still root for our favorite teams with a lively at-home tailgate party. Celebrate the big game with a classic backyard tailgate. Our pop-up tent packages are perfect for beating the heat. Easy to set up, they will create some much-needed shade while you watch or listen to the game. Of course, what’s a game without food & drinks? Create an impressive food and seating area with our stylish tables, chairs, and serving ware.

4th of July

Before you light up the night in style, enjoy the summer weather with the company of your friends and family. Our Ready to Party Packages are perfect for your annual 4th of July Party, whether your guest count ranges from 30 to 100. Each includes a white tent and enough stylish furnishings to accommodate your party size. Just don’t forget to add on your essentials, like a banquet table for food, festive linens, and serving ware for summer food favs.

Micro Weddings

Host the small and intimate wedding of your dreams in your very own backyard. Our Micro Wedding Packages were created with simplicity in mind and have all of the essentials you need, including furniture and serving ware, like our elegant White China. View our packages to see which one most suits your needs and add on any other decor or furnishings you can’t do without.
