Surprising Essentials for a Perfect Backyard Party

Now that CDC restrictions have relaxed for indoor gatherings, friends and families can get together for a fun and unforgettable backyard party. Every party needs basic supplies, like plates, cups, and utensils. You’ll also need food, drinks, and a setup for music. 

But here’s a party must-have you probably didn’t consider: screen enclosures in West Palm Beach.

That’s right! 

Nothing creates a more comfortable, relaxed, and intimate atmosphere than a screen enclosure. In this list, we’ll share some practical solutions to make your backyard party a blast.

Patio Enclosures

Patio screen enclosures in West Palm Beach allow you to enjoy the good part of the outdoors while keeping the bad part safely on the other side of the screen. Enjoy the sunshine and clear blue skies, but not the insects that buzz around your face or crawl all over your food.

Enjoy the relaxing pitter-patter of the rain without getting drenched. Stay outside from sunrise until sunset, entertaining your friends and family in complete comfort. 

Not only do patio screen enclosures increase your resale value, but they also make for enjoyable summer nights outside.

Sunroom

Another option for screen enclosures in West Palm Beach is a sunroom. Instead of having a patio enclosure, a sunroom can improve the original living space with tinted windows and extra sun protection, along with custom designs for a stylish and clean look. 

Here at Screen Builders, we design and build custom sunrooms with acrylic or vinyl pane windows. Acrylic may be the better option for South Florida residents. The acrylic pane is stronger than glass and it does not transmit heat like glass.

Creating a sunroom is a great way to convert your existing outdoor roofed area and expand your living area for leisure living. When you’re serving food and beverages to your guests, you won’t have to worry about bugs hovering and landing on your food or a fly floating in your punch. This is all thanks to the vinyl or acrylic panes designed for long-term performance.  

Pool Enclosures

If you want to take the party to the pool, screen enclosures in West Palm Beach can be used to protect yourself and your guests against harmful UV rays, and keep bugs at a distance while you enjoy outdoor poolside dining in peace. 

Swim without having to deal with dead leaves, tiny branches, and bugs finding their way in the pool. When you spend less time worrying about these nuisances, you spend more time having a great experience with your friends and family.

Natural Bug Repellants

You can buy sprays to keep bugs away, but then you must deal with the toxic, unpleasant smells they exude. 

Why not take a more natural, but equally effective route? 

Choose from beautiful bug repellant plants, like lavender and marigold. Not only do they look pretty, but they’ll douse you and your guests with a wonderful fragrance. 

More importantly, a bouquet of bug repellant flowers will keep the biggest pests away.

Lavender, for example, works so well that it hinders mosquito’s ability to smell. Mosquitoes don’t like marigolds either, so stock up on these brilliant yellow flowers. 

Citronella grass is effective at keeping a variety of pests away, so don’t forget to add some to your shopping cart.

In the end, though, it’s your choice: fragrant flowers, or chemical bug sprays?

Outdoor Patio Lights

When the sun dips out of sight, set the mood with outdoor patio lights. When it comes to lighting, you have a few choices, including:

  • Wall lights
  • Hanging lights
  • Post and pier mount lights
  • Security lights
  • Landscape lights

You don’t have to choose one option. Be creative and mix and match to create a spectacular ambiance. Just remember not to get carried away: less is more. Don’t use bulbs that are too bright. Don’t underestimate lower wattage bulbs, as they can illuminate a dark night for a beautiful atmosphere, not a glaring one.
