Outdoor Decoration Ideas: Tips for Unforgettable Dinners with Friends

Hello to all lovers of special moments and delightful gatherings! Ifyou’re already starting to miss the holidays and long summer days, perhaps it’s time to plan a lunch (or dinner!) on the terrace and gather with family and friends.

The promise is of unforgettable moments, sponsored by good food and a very inviting outdoor space. But if you’re not convinced yet, imagine this scenario: gathering friends and family at home; having the terrace decorated with care, with comfortable sofas, blankets to keep us warm at night, and tables with a rustic touch to place our tastiest snacks; feeling the grill’s flame warming our hearts while the sun gently kisses our skin and the refreshing scent of the grass fills the air. And when is the best time to plan a meal with friends on the terrace, if not now, in September, when the days are a bit cooler but warm enough for us to wear just a few pieces of clothing and walk comfortably barefoot? It’s the perfect program for the weekend and to say goodbye to summer in style!

Recently, we renovated the terrace of Casa da Brisa, where we transformed the outdoor space of the house into the perfect stage to bring together good food and good company (if you haven’t seen the project yet, you can take a look at the results here). In addition to the final images of this renovation, we want to share with you a list of essential items to decorate your outdoor space and your table, and to organize the perfect gathering and an unforgettable banquet!
