Tips how to prepare your backyard for summer entertaining

Hot Toronto summer weather has just arrived and we all look forward to spending more time outdoors. There’s nothing quite like guests popping over or spontaneous neighborhood get-togethers. Even if your back yard is not big, having few friend over for glass of wine is always fun.

So prepare early and don’t be caught off-guard

🔹Check picnic and barbecue supplies – refill salt and pepper dispensers and napkin holders, and ensure you have all of the essential condiments on hand for backyard barbecues

🔹Clean off the outdoor furniture and wash picnic blankets

🔹Fix tears or replace cushions on outdoor seating

🔹Stock up on mosquito repellent candles

🔹Hang lights under patios and put solar lights in the garden beds – particularly around stairs and walkways

🔹If you use gas tanks for your grill ensure they are full or replace if necessary

Happy Summer :).
