Though the summer weather is usually great in the Omaha area, there’s something special about the springtime. Maybe it’s the promise of the gloriously long days ahead, or the excitement of evenings still tinged with a cool breeze. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor space.
Let’s look at five ways to enjoy your backyard and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.
1) Turn your covered patio into an outdoor living room
If you have a covered porch or patio, turn up the comfort factor with a few soft couches, an outdoor rug, and pillows for lounging and after-dinner conversation. Add some color with unique pots and interesting combinations of annuals, perennials and shrubs. This time of year, we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space!
2) Make s’mores with the kids
Your backyard is just the spot for an outdoor fire pit. You can find them in an array of sizes and materials to match your home’s style. The little ones will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. What was once only an occasional camping experience can be an everyday treat at home.
3) Take in a movie
Your spacious yard is the perfect place for family movie night! Purchase a screen and projector, or get creative with a white sheet, and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.
4) Let the light shine
Lighting can make or break interior design, but did you know you can use light to completely transform your outdoor space, too? Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make your deck or patio cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave.
5) Dine outdoors in elegance
Take advantage of Omaha’s lovely spring climate by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.
