With its crisp air and stunning foliage, autumn is one of the best seasons for dining and entertaining outdoors. The cooler temperatures bring opportunities to enjoy cozy meals and social gatherings while fall colors are the most beautiful. If you’re looking for ways to update your patio this harvest season, we’ve got plenty of tips for alfresco dining.
Fall décor that delights
Go all out with autumn-themed decorations for a stylishly seasonal dining experience. Think gold centerpieces, mini-gourds, darker linens like cranberry and goldenrod. Finish the tablescape with scented candles reminiscent of fall fragrances like cinnamon, sweet orange, clove, and pumpkin spice for a festive ambiance.
Keep the elements out
For the ultimate patio upgrades, consider a luxury patio cover with built-in sensors that open and close the roof slats according to weather conditions. This smart technology lets you enjoy the crisp fall weather while keeping everyone dry and comfortable. An Outdoor Elements louvered patio cover features integrated LED lighting and can be equipped with heaters and motorized screens to enjoy the cozy autumn vibes with warmth and privacy.
Take outdoor patio dining to the next level with designer heaters or a fire feature. Whether a wood-burning fireplace or gas-powered fire pit, the mesmerizing flames add atmosphere and warmth to any occasion. For a more subtle design with effective results, you can opt for heaters integrated in one of our Louvered Roof Pergolas. Apple cider, hot cocoa, and wine were meant to be enjoyed around the fire and warmth with family and friends!
Focus on ambient lighting
Add decorative lights around the backyard and patio for a festive ambiance that invites guests to linger. Overhead string lights, solar-lit lanterns, and fixtures that give off a soft, muted glow are the best options for alfresco meals after dusk. The innovative LED and RBG lighting available in our products can be adjusted to fit the mood of any outdoor gathering.
Inviting outdoor furniture
Make the most of brisk fall weather by creating a cozy and inviting environment with furniture and accessories. Ensure seating is plush and warm. Metal chairs should be topped with thick cushions or swapped out for wood or rattan varieties. Don’t forget to add flannel or wool-knit blankets, and colorful rugs which are always a crowd-pleaser on chilly evenings.
