Spring is the perfect time to host an outdoor wedding or event. Although most equate spring events with gorgeous floral design, there are plenty of other creative design ideas you can implement to take your celebration to the next level. Below are some of our favorites!

Tented Wedding Receptions

You know what they say—April showers come before May flowers. And once May DOES arrive, the heat is here to stay. Especially in Texas! Hosting a tented reception is the perfect way to ensure you and your guests stay dry, cool, and comfortable this spring. A tent with a crisp white canopy will help keep out the sun, while an opaque material will allow you to see the beautiful sky above—day or night!

Outdoor Seating

If you plan on hosting an outdoor event this spring, you can’t forget the seating. Ideally, you’ll want to use furniture that is both comfortable and weather-resistant.

Our Versailles Sofa is perfect for seating couples and close family members outside. With cushions made of lightweight, off-white canvas, it’s easy to add pillows with a pop of color to match your theme. The sofa also has a wooden frame that blends in beautifully with natural surroundings.

Outdoor Lounge

There’s nothing like kicking back and enjoying the company of others in an outdoor lounge! To create a one-of-a-kind lounge experience, you’ll need to have main seating, secondary seating, and, of course, cute accent tables.

For the main seating, start with a couch or tête à tête! For a fresh and contemporary outdoor event, we recommend the Malibu Daybed, which, like the Versailles Sofa, looks amazing when paired with piles of colorful pillows. Complete this lounge with a set of your favorite chairs—we love the Dakota Chairs and Chelsea Chairs—and accent tables or stools.
