Tips for Entertaining Outdoors in Florida

With its beautiful weather, delicious food, vibrant communities, and luscious natural scenery, it’s safe to say that Florida was meant to be enjoyed outdoors. But before you invite friends and family over for an afternoon of fun in the sun, there are a few things you can—and should—do if you want to throw a successful party or get-together:

  • Provide Plenty of Seating – To help your guests relax, be sure to put out plenty of comfortable seating before they arrive. If you have hard plastic chairs, then consider investing in a few chair cushions to help your guests get comfortable. Try to set up chairs beneath awnings or shady trees to provide your guests a cool place to sit and enjoy themselves.   
  • Prepare Drinks for Everyone – It’s one thing to have a cooler full of soft drinks, but if you really want to impress your guests, then you should prepare fresh, cold drinks for them when they arrive. Adults may enjoy a refreshing mojito or mint julep, while younger guests can have fruit smoothies or fresh juice.  
  • Clean Up the Yard – If you will be entertaining outside, then be sure to clean up your yard before your guests arrive. Rake up the leaves, dig out the weeds, and remove any debris from your pool. You don’t have to hire a professional cleanup crew, but you should spend some time making your yard presentable. 
  • Keep Annoying Insects Away –The most menacing thing that prevents us from enjoying the great outdoors are those pesky biting insects that we all hate: mosquitos. To keep your guests happy and free of bug bites, have a mosquito misting system installed around your home. Unlike unattractive netting and harmful aerosol sprays, mosquito misting systems utilize pyrethrum (a safe and natural insecticide) to deter and kill biting insects such as mosquitos, gnats, and spiders.
