Summer Tips for Entertaining Guests in Austin, Texas

It’s always a good time for entertaining guests, but trying to host events during a hot Texas summer can be challenging. To give you some summer tips for entertaining guests, The Homestead in Austin, TX has some ideas to share with you!

Cooler Outdoor Furniture for the Patio

If it weren’t for the heat, it’s always fun to sit on the patio with your friends and family to enjoy the outdoors and chat. One way to beat the heat is outdoor furniture for your patio. Umbrellas and canopies can provide much needed shade. There are also all sorts of patio furniture that feature breathable fabrics that stay cool. No one likes sitting down in a burning hot chair! With new and improved patio furniture, you and your guests can stay nice and cool even when the temperature is pushing three digits.

Summer-Inspired Dinnerware for Cookouts and More!

A summer cookout is no place for your nice dishes and plates, but disposable paper and plastic plates are often too flimsy to be of any real use to anyone. Summer-inspired dinnerware that is made of a sturdy material is perfect for cookouts and patio dining throughout the summer. Not only will you seem like a host who planned for everything, but they’re also able to be reused time and time again.

Fun Lights for Summer Nights

Don’t let the sunset mark the end of your summer parties! Summer is all about enjoying cool summer nights. Keep the fun going after dark with fun outdoor lighting. String lights, lanterns and other lighting not only provides much needed illumination, but also doubles as easy backyard decoration. If you’re looking to shake things up, you can also find lights in a variety of colors.

We hope these summer entertaining tips have inspired you to turn your backyard or patio into an outdoor oasis. Just because Austin, TX, can get hot during the summer, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good time with family and friends!
