Summer is the best time of year to get the neighbors together for a backyard cookout or a relaxing drink on the patio. Especially here in Minnesota, we need to take advantage of the short time frame we have to spend time outside!

Turn your Minnesota backyard into a fun and inviting space with these simple decorating solutions from the paint and color experts at Hirshfield’s:

Dine Al Fresco
There’s nothing more precarious than trying to balance a plate on your lap while simultaneously holding a drink, watching the kids and talking with friends. Give your guests a place to sit while you dine outdoors, whether it’s a simple picnic table, some folding tables dressed up with linen or an ornate outdoor dining set.

You can make your outdoor dining space feel special and dramatic by moving your table away from the house and placing it in the middle of your backyard. Surround it with candles or flowers to give it a touch of intimacy while maintaining the grandeur of the set up.

Offer shade with beautiful linen
Curtains aren’t just for windows! Offer a little relief from the heat with a shaded area. Create a DIY freestanding canopy, add some curtains to your deck, or set up a fun fort area for the kids to play around in.
