Outdoor Entertaining - Beauteeful Living

With Memorial Day weekend approaching at the end of the week, the beginning of “outdoor hosting” season has begun! On the blog today, I’m sharing some ways you can create a cozy vibe to your outdoor entertaining space. This post is sponsored by Amara where many of today’s decor items have been sourced. Thank you for supporting brands that make Beauteeful Living possible.

Outdoor Conversation Area

Let’s take a peek at our outdoor conversation area. This is the area right outside our family room. The wicker sofa you see in photo was first purchased 2 years ago. Miraculously Fortunately, it’s still holding strong and looking brand new. 🙂

One of the easiest ways to create a cozy vibe in your outdoor living area is to incorporate lanterns into your decor. I’m loving the selection of lanterns from Amara’s website. You can tell the quality of craftsmanship by how well structured the bamboo lanterns are woven and the weightiness of that black metal lantern.

If this is the first time you’ve heard of the luxury brand, Amara, I highly suggest you review their incredible assortment of home and lifestyle products. Some of your favorite fashion brands have home decor lines featured on their website!

You can make outdoor seating extra cozy by throwing in some decor and accents that you would normally have indoors.

After all, who says indoor throw pillows can’t be placed outside for entertaining? If it’s a day without rain, I say go for it. The same goes for your vase containing silk flowers. 🙂

Are you loving that large tan lantern as much as I do? It’s just the right height where you can place next to an outdoor sofa and have it still stand out.

What’s better than a cozy conversation area in your patio? How about a dining area right near it?

I dressed up our existing patio dining set with some lovely outdoor dining ware from Amara.

So COLORFUL right?

That salad bowl is ah-mazing! It looks like glass but way better because it’s lighter and made from durable thermoplastic technopolymer. Its indestructible material is a huge benefit when you’re talking about entertaining family and friends with young kids. Actually, I’ve been known to break a dish or two, myself! 😉

Fruit salad looks extra pretty and decadent when served on these stylish melamine plates. I love those patterns! These plates look great over the petal-like vinyl placemats.
