Have you noticed how everyone is so busy with their lives, they barely have enough time for their loved ones? Sparing a few moments and spending them with those you care about can be more than you ever need because it’s in these moments that you actually get to relax and reflect on your own world away from all the hustle and bustle. Nothing can replace long chats in cafés in hidden corners of the cities, thought you can’t always go out as much as you’d like. Instead of waiting for the next opportunity to come your way, why not use this as a reason to bring the café close to you? As close as your yard, for instance.
Just imagine sitting outside, listening to the birds, breathing fresh air while you enjoy the same comfort as you would in some fancy place. On the plus side as well, you’ll also save on money and never waste time drinking bad coffee but you can prepare it yourself, exactly to your taste. All it takes is getting inspired by magazines, your favourite shows and series, and the willingness to start up your creativity. As the great Picasso once said “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working”.
When you envision your yard, you’d first think of starting with the table, though you can get even more inspired when you look through catalogues of cafe outdoor chairs first. The choices are endless and you can be as bold in your purchase as going for a mix of colours and chairs, some retro or vintage styles that will bring more vividness to your outdoor space. Who said it all has to be matchy matchy? After you’ve got that covered, you can look for the perfect table. Have the number of people in mind, who’ll be using the chairs and table so you’ll easily decide on the size.
Once you’ve made your choice from the variety of cafe outdoor chairs and tables, think of the decoration. There are many ways you can have fun with the designs; for instance, you can use cushions for the chairs, tablecloths and rugs that can bring more warmth and colour. Use the natural beauty of flowers and turn the area into a scented haven. You can extend your privacy by hanging pots of herbs around or making a cloth screen. This way the area will also feel cosier. You probably have that favourite place that you love visiting, so why not decorate with some ideas of its style as well. Another component of the harmonious atmosphere is the lighting. For a more romantic vibe, you can’t go wrong by adding a few candles.
After you see it all complete, you might end up surprising yourself with the creative outcome. Who knows, maybe you’ll love your yard arrangement so much that you get inspired to open up your own café in the future.
