Host a Dinner Party on your Patio this Winter

Did you know that winter is one of the best times of the year to host a dinner party? It's true! Well, at least it is in Arizona. The dog days of summer are over, and Valley homeowners can finally enjoy their patios without having to jump in the pool every few minutes just to keep cool. Yes, winter in Phoenix is the perfect time to really make the most of your patio. So why not stage an outdoor dinner party? Whether you're planning a holiday get-together, celebrating a birthday or anniversary or just want an excuse to hang out with friends - the patio is the place to be this winter! And Sunset Patio can help you prepare.

If you have not hosted a dinner party, but have always wanted to, then you simply must begin planning now. There are a lot of things to be done, including choosing a menu, creating a guest list and deciding upon the right table setting to set the tone you want for your dinner party. But the first order of business is sprucing up your outdoor space. Perk up that drab patio with a little help from Sunset Patio.

To begin you'll need to provide plenty of table space and seating for your guests. Sunset Patio's huge selection of dining tables, accent tables, sofas, ottomans, chaise lounges, bar stools, dining chairs and club chairs can help you ensure that all of your guests will have a place to sit, relax and enjoy their dinner.

Next, you need to prepare for bad weather. After all, it might rain - even in Arizona. That is why it is important to be prepared for inclement weather by providing your guests with adequate shelter from the elements. Choose from a variety of patio umbrellas, fire tables, and other outdoor furniture and accessories to ensure your guests stay warm and dry on the big night.

To add an interesting twist to your dinner party, come up with a fun theme. Plan your party around your favorite movie or television series, historical era or even your favorite color to create a fun atmosphere your guests will love. Design an elegant centerpiece using fragrant flowers, candles or even fresh fruit to lighten everyone's mood and brighten up the table. Sunset Patio offers a variety of patio accessories, including candles, place mats, wall sconces, throw pillows, rugs and other special items, that can really spark your creativity.

Lighting can make or break an outdoor dinner party. Fill your outdoor space with candle light or soft patio lighting that will make your party truly magical. A few strategically placed lights will really set the mood for your guests. And fire tables and fire pits can serve two purposes - keeping your guests comfortable and adding a warm glow to your patio. Sunset Patio offers a wide selection of decorative lamps, candles and fire tables that will provide the perfect mood lighting for your patio.

Hosting a dinner party is not that difficult - it just takes a little planning and creativity. Taking the time to add a few special touches to your patio will help ensure your dinner party is a success.
