Transforming an outdoor area, whether a roof deck, commercial space, or even your backyard, into a memorable event venue is easy with proper planning.
Whether it’s a cozy gathering for a wedding anniversary, a family celebration, or a fundraiser for a nonprofit, your favorite outdoor patio can be the perfect backdrop for a memorable night under the stars or a comfortable summer afternoon. Your guests can embrace nature’s beauty, bask in the fresh air, and thoroughly enjoy the event you’ve curated.
Define Your Vision
Defining your vision for an outdoor event is the first step. Consider the purpose, atmosphere, and theme you want to convey. Is it an intimate garden party, a romantic evening under the stars, or a lively summer soiree?
Envision the décor, seating arrangements, and lighting that align with your vision. For example, a formal event calls for sophistication and indirect lighting. A black and white palette is perfect, accented with crystal vases overflowing with red roses. Corporate events favor muted color schemes such as soft pink table linens and gray or cream-colored table settings. For events in the fall, consider jewel-toned décor in rich colors like gold and scarlet.
Assess Your Space
Hosting an outdoor event offers a unique experience, but before sending out invitations and planning your decor, it’s crucial to assess the space thoroughly.
First and foremost, consider the size of the venue. How many guests can fit comfortably? Consider seating arrangements, ease of access to each table, the buffet, bar, and conversation areas, as well as any additional features you want to include, such as a dance floor or a gift table. Ensure ample room for guests to move around comfortably with clear signage for exits and restrooms.
Weather Contingency Plans
A louvered roof system is an ideal solution for outdoor events. It offers the flexibility you need if it’s hotter than expected or starts to sprinkle just as dinner is served. You can adjust the louvers, providing the perfect amount of shade or shelter. And if the weather clears, open up the louvers so guests can enjoy the rest of the evening under the stars. The ability to control natural light and ventilation adds another layer of comfort for your guests.
An adjustable louvered patio cover ensures your event goes smoothly. For a cool night, consider portable heaters, cozy pillows, and colorful blankets for conversation areas or cooling fans for a summer afternoon.
