Enjoying Your Deck in the Summer

Once you have a new or revitalized deck to enjoy, you will want to make the most of your beautiful outdoor living area. Long sunny days and warm nights make summer an ideal time to make use of your deck. The possibilities for entertaining and hosting family gatherings are virtually endless, but don’t forget to take some time to savor your space.

Peace and Quiet

Once the building or revitalization of your new deck is complete, you are now the people with the amazing deck. So, while you’re sure to have the privilege and enjoyment of entertaining all summer long, if you so choose, also remember to just sit back, relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. Take a book to your favorite lounge chair, paired with an iced tea or summer cocktail and spend an afternoon engrossed in your reading and soaking up the sun. Other quiet, calming activities include planting herbs in pots on your new deck, playing some quiet music while you surf the web, or simply take a nap.

Holiday BBQ

Summer holidays signal the beginning, middle and end of summer, and many Americans spend either Memorial Day, Independence Day or Labor Day, or all three enjoying a backyard barbecue. Hanging a few red, white and blue decorations is a fun way show your patriotism and make your new deck more festive. Fire up the grill, make sure the cooler is full of ice cold drinks, and pull out your best summer cookout recipes. Or better yet–make it a potluck.

Garden Party

There are as many reasons to host a garden party as there are days of summer, but some of the best include showering a bride or mom to be, celebrating a recent graduate, milestone birthday or newly engaged or married couple. Summer garden parties can be simple and easy but should include a signature drink, bright and fun decorations, and of course fresh flowers and floral accents. Choose your menu and entertainment based on the type of celebration and the theme of your party.

Date Night

There is nothing more romantic than an intimate dinner or brunch for two, complete with just the right lighting, a delicious meal, and no interruptions. Surprise your spouse or significant other with his or her favorite foods, a glass from that bottle of wine or champagne you’ve been saving for a special occasion, and some soft background music.

These are just a few of the many ways to enjoy your new or revitalized deck from New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc. this summer. Don’t miss out on all the fun; contact us today to get in touch with our deck builders to start building your dream outdoor living space.
