Tips for Holiday Hosting on Your Deck

Hosting during the holidays is a big undertaking, but so rewarding. If you are planning to throw a magical, outdoor party this season, Distinctive Deck Designs has everything you need to get your deck or patio ready. Make sure you set the scene with outdoor lighting, keep your guests warm and toasty with an outdoor fireplace and sheltered from the cold with an outdoor living area.

Set the scene

The best part of a holiday party is the atmosphere. Twinkling lights, a flickering fire, and free-flowing hot cocoa are essentials when planning your get-together. Purchasing fairy lights and placing them around your outdoor area will give the tables a beautiful glow, but the best way to achieve mood lighting is to have Distinctive Deck Designs install built-in lighting in your Fairfax home.

Our outdoor lighting options have the capability to transform your outdoor space. By installing deck lighting, you will be able to extend the amount of time spent outside, enjoying your guest’s company. You’ll be able to continue hosting well after the sun goes down since your area will be illuminated and safe to use.

Create a comfy space

Since it will be chilly outside this season, creating a warm and inviting environment is key to hosting a good holiday party. Keeping your guests warm will be simple with a built-in fireplace. There is nothing better than gathering around a fire with family and friends on cold nights. Distinctive Deck Designs works with homeowners in the Fairfax area to construct custom fireplaces that fit seamlessly into your patio design. We use only the best of the best materials and the latest installation techniques to create a structurally sound firepit that will complete your beautiful backyard and be the perfect addition to your holiday party.

Create a barrier to the cold 

Gazebos, cabanas, and patio covers are among our most popular products, and for good reason. There are many benefits to having a covered living area in the winter. Screened gazebos, porches and other covered deck designs offer protection from the rain and snow. A windscreen can also block some of those harsh winter winds that may have otherwise kept you inside. Installing a covered living area with Distinctive Deck Designs will allow your holiday guests to have a place to take shelter if winds pick up or rain begins to fall!
