By Uncategorized

We know you love to show off your patio and outdoor living space from Richmond’s Landscaping and what better time to do so than the Fourth of July! So we have found a few outdoor decor ideas to add to you already amazing outdoor kitchens, fire pits and paver patios!!

Secret garden night lights
Place garden stake lights or a small battery-operated camping lantern under tablecloths.

To hide an electrical cord, part the grass, tuck in the cord, and stake it with a U-shaped piece of wire. If you’re using electric lights, keep fabric 2 feet from the bulb.

For extra shine, you can create a table covering from brightly colored ― and inexpensive  taffeta. Use fusing tape to secure panels together and tuck unhemmed edges underneath.


Lawn stars

This Fourth of July, let a few lawn stars brighten up your celebration. They’re ideal alongside a walkway or next to your picnic table.1. Use a craft knife and a metal ruler to cut a star-shaped stencil out of a large piece of chipboard or cardboard.

2. Mist the patch of grass with a spray bottle of water.

3. Place the stencil on the grass and, using a sifter or large strainer, sprinkle a very small amount of white flour into the stencil.

4. Carefully remove the stencil and dispose of the excess flour. For a longer-lasting star that can be walked on, use spray or marking chalk. To find suppliers, search the Web using the key words “spray chalk.”

Make star luminarias
White bags and vellum stars make festive outdoor lanterns.Use a star stencil and colored vellum to make red and blue stars. Glue them to white paper bags. For beautiful (and safe) illumination, use a small tap light instead of a candle.
Hanging lights
Give hanging lights a festive kick with blue tea candles, then suspend them by replacing their hanging chains with red and white ribbon. It’s your own, updated version of stars and stripes.
