5 Ways to Create Your Very Own Summer Backyard Oasis
#1 There is no better way to kick off the summer than chilling on patio furniture that allows you to bring the comfort and style of your home aesthetic outdoors! Great outdoor furniture is a must for comfort and style and we received a couch, two chairs and a table from the PATIO HQ Dunemere Collection which is inspired by classic lines and design with an updated twist.
It’s soft sloping and flare curved shapes are elegant yet easy and work in a multitude of outdoor settings. The substantial yet soft wicker weave comes in two colorways, a light, rich gray which we have and a deep, hearty brown.
The tables are a combination of the weave with glass tops and a matte black metal base and the combination of multiple materials on one pieces adds depth and scope to the design. Our table is so elegant and functional.
The Dunemere collection is designed to be generous in size and scale and offers true Luxe seating and they offer a Three seat patio sofa, loveseat, chair, ottoman and versatile bench which can be used as an occasional seating piece or as a dining bench.

#2 The second way to set the stage is to create the mood and there is no better way than with great lighting and the famous tiki torches that give it that tropical feel and with the hot weather you can make it feel like you are in the islands. And of course don't forget accessories like UMBRELLAS and throw cushions!
#3 Music is important to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. We like all kinds of music and a nice wireless outdoor speaker to project that music is always important required equipment. Coolers Make Music? The 40 Qt. Koolmax Bluetooth PA System Wheeled Cooler is the perfect addition to every outing.

Two built-in 6.5-inch hi-fi water resistant speakers with high-performing tweeters will bring a whole new beat to your large or small gatherings. Built-in Bluetooth digital music player and FM radio make listening to your favorite tunes quick and easy.
# 4 The party does not get started until the first drink is poured. We love prosecco, and my husband likes a cold beer but for the party besides those two are our famous bloody mary. We use vodka, tomato juice, pepper, celery and the key is horse radish which gives it that texture and kick.
#5 The food of course is an essential component. An outdoor party has to have a great menu and with us being vegan and vegetarian we try not to forget it is a barbecue with veggie burgers and hot dogs and imitation meat burgers.
We make a big Broccoli salad and grilled vegetables and corn. Grilling up onions, peppers, zucchini, Portobello mushrooms with the corn will give everyone a plate of something they will really love. And here are a few gadgets to keep your food fresh and to help you enjoy it outdoors!
Save those Salads: Macaroni, potato, fruit – no matter which salads you bring to your picnic, keeping the fresh taste in and the bugs out is a must!
