Fall has arrived in Southern California and it is a great time of year to throw a party in your backyard. The autumn mood is delightful and the ambiance inspires a celebration that is enhanced with food, fun, friends and family. Here are some backyard furnishing design ideas to help celebrate the season in style:
Comfortable Seating for your Patio Area
Great patio furniture brings comfort and function to your outdoor spaces. For all around outdoor entertainment, you will want to have a comfortable seating area for great conversation and relaxation. Outfit a cozy patio with either a wicker, teak or aluminum seating fitted with plush and cozy cushion seating. Choose your style of seating, whether it is a traditional seating arrangement of a sofa, love seat and club chair or sectional seating which can accommodate a large crowd. Your backyard will quickly become a second family room for the fall months.

It's not just enough to have comfortable seating, it's nice to add some accessories to your entertaining space such as a warm blanket, some outdoor pillows and rug. Try an Elaine Smith Pillows with hundreds of beautiful options and a Treasure Garden outdoor rug.
Include a Fire Pit
A crackling fire warms up your backyard and is the perfect centerpiece for your seating area. There are plenty of options when considering a fire pit for your backyard. Fire pits come in many shapes and styles and can be lit with natural gas, propane or eco-friendly ethanol. A beautiful fire pit surrounded by your comfortable patio furniture will quickly become your guests favorite hang-out spot.

For dinner parties, it’s nice to seat everyone at a long table. The meal and conversation are easily shared in this family-style setting. Find the right patio dining set in either teak, wicker or aluminum. Count the number of guests, and make sure you have plenty of room. Pacific Patio Furniture in Agoura Hills carries a wide range of extension dining tables which can hold up to 12 persons with comfortable and stylish outdoor dining chair options.

Add a few outdoor lighting fixtures to your backyard patio environment. Solar lanterns with LED lighting add a stylish and ambient look to your pool setting. Or, add some LED globes to your pool for some fun ambiance. You can also add some fire feature accessories such as table top fire lanterns.

Don't forget the Music!
Often forgotten until the last minute, music is a very important element for a successful backyard party. Music relieves you of awkward silence, and dulls out all outside noises. Set a playlist at the beginning of the party and then forget about it. Go for crowd-pleaser classics: the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, a little Tom Petty. And remember to respect your neighbors and keep the volume set as background music.
Whether it’s watching the big game, or going Hollywood with a movie screening on a warm night, integrating technology like TVs and sound systems into your outdoor space lets you take your enertaining to the next level. Plus, with an outdoor media center, you can enjoy the fresh air without missing the newest episode of your favorite show.
