Set the mood
You don’t need fancy outdoor furniture to make this fête fabulous. Creatively arranged candles, decorative stars, lush throws to warm up the ground, a few glam throw pillows, festive tableware, and some surprising fizzy drinks (Apple pie soda! New local beers! Ginger ale!) will set the nighttime mood.
