You’re never too old for smores! If you have a fire pit in your backyard, this is the perfect excuse for a get together. Make sure you have enough seating and space for the guests you invite, and make sure you have enough marshmallows and roasting sticks too! Aside from classic s’mores ingredients, cut up some fresh strawberries, peanut butter cups, or some of your other favorite toppings for your guests to personalize their treats.
A fun get-together for family and friends is a classic game night. Whether you’re better at cornhole or poker, you can set up various stations for everything your guests might be interested in. You could also prepare for a game that everyone can be involved in together, like a murder mystery! Make sure you have enough outdoor lighting so that everyone can see the games they’re participating in, and put out some snacks and drinks on outdoor tables for refreshment.
Enjoy the thrill and excitement of the cinema without having to leave your yard. Use an outdoor projector, along with pillows, blankets, and air mattresses to create the perfect, cozy ambiance of the movie theater–outside! Be sure you have enough outdoor seating or laying space for your guests, or use lawn chairs to fit everyone into a seat.
