How to spruce up your outdoor area

With warmer weather around the corner, we're here to show you exactly how to spice up your backyard or balcony this season. You won’t want to come back inside after you discover our top tips on how to transform your outdoor space!

Inject some colour

A seamless way to add a homely and cosy touch is complementing your furnishings with pops of colour, plants, artwork and table ornaments. Elevate your existing plants with plant stands. Style them individually or in groups, using complementing or contrasting pots, adding character, colour and height. Transform blank or tired walls by adding fun and bright outdoor art pieces.

A simple, textured tablecloth is the perfect way to create an intimate and inviting environment. Set it with candles, platters and vases of different heights and materials. Find everything you need to style your space at Dusk, Kmart or Bed Nath N' Table.

Make it fun

To add the perfect family touch, why not get the kids involved? Adairs has chic kids' teepee tents that will fit in nicely with the vibe and really add to the cosiness of your space. Style it with strings of fairy lights, inviting outdoor rugs and cushions as well as other outdoor decorative items from Big W, Target or The Reject Shop.

Beverage station

Stay refreshed in style with a drink station featuring ice-cold beverages and maybe even a cocktail or two!

Check out the range of drink dispensers from House or Salt & Pepper, then it's as easy as finding the perfect thirst-quenching juices or cocktails, such as this passionfruit and watermelon margarita, to fill them with.
