Is it even a thing anymore? Surely not while remaining within social-distancing guidelines, right? Or, maybe only in warmer climates.
Well, we’re here to say, “No, you don’t have to cancel your outdoor gathering without casting health guidelines to the wind, even in cold weather.”
Below we’ve listed tested ways to provide your guests with an enjoyable experience at your outdoor party while still respecting health guidelines in the pandemic and staying toasty.
There is a plethora of fuel-efficient and heat-productive outdoor propane heating options available to people planning on hosting an outdoor gathering in colder weather. However, they will also make a patio much more comfortable on chilly summer nights in any climate. Mr. Heater is a producer of patio heaters becoming increasingly popular in the northern US states combating interior-dining closure in restaurants due to Covid-19.
It would be ideal for planning to provide each guest with individualized glassware and cutlery, although that isn’t often a feasible option. Chances are, you’ve seen in magazines how beautiful and personalized that looks. But your lack of access to unique artistic solutions doesn’t mean you can’t do it at home for your adult children and their significant others or friends you would like to celebrate with.
Crafty homemade nametags (check Pinterest) add an easy-to-achieve level of personalization to wineglass-stems, serving spoons/forks. The appetizer table where everyone generally uses the same serving utensils is an easy fix for keeping sanitary. Just make sure all your guests are aware and willing to abide by the set health guidelines.
Make sure your guests know that whoever they come with, they’ll be sitting next to. By taking further precautions of providing each table and its respective guests with their own platters or serving plates of food, you’ll provide your guests with both sanctity of mind along with a clean and unspoiled meal.
If you tell all your expected guests to be aware that you’ll expect them to adhere to health guidelines, your outdoor party should go off without a hitch.
