Ways To Decorate A Portable Gazebo

These days just about anyone can create useable outdoor living space. If yard dimensions allow, a portable metal-framed structure is an excellent choice. Most include weatherproof fabric that can be drawn for privacy as well as screened fabric for insect control. Try these creative ways to decorate a portable gazebo, and make it a true extension of your indoor living space.

Decorate the Ground with an Indoor/Outdoor Rug

Before placing furniture in a portable gazebo, consider the surface beneath. If the ground is concrete, decorate while making the space more comfy with the help of an indoor/outdoor rug. If the portable gazebo will be placed directly on the ground, place a sheet of treated wood down first. Cover the wood with an indoor/outdoor rug. This will provide a more level surface and make it look more like an indoor space. It is not necessary to place a portable gazebo on a concrete patio or wooden deck. Save those areas for grilling and enjoying full sun.

Add Comfy Indoor/Outdoor Furniture and Accessories

When planning to decorate a portable gazebo, comfortable seating and a center table is a must. Consider weather-resistant wicker with weatherproof cushions, and be sure to add indoor/outdoor throw pillows to add color, comfort and style. Instead of using side tables, add a center dining table or coffee table. Decorate a table of choice with a vase of fresh cut flowers, a wicker basket of fresh fruit or a potted shade-loving plant. This practical way to decorate will make the portable gazebo feel like a real part of the home instead of just a glorified tent.

Ways to Decorate for Greater Privacy

When more privacy is desired in a portable gazebo, do not draw the drapes and destroy the view along with any chance of a breeze. Decorate around it with tall-growing ornamental grass. It will allow breezes to pass through the portable gazebo while providing a new level of privacy - right where it is needed. This is especially helpful when neighbors are close and seclusion is greatly lacking. The grass will serve as a natural wall that can grow quite high, depending on the variety. Add color by planting low-growing shade-loving flowers in the foreground, and enjoy this lovely outdoor area for entertaining and relaxing anytime of the day or night.

The area was an orchard before the Khmer Rouge used it as an execution camp; gazebos and benches still perversely adorn the landscape. I had expected gray skies, fire and brimstone, leering guards…something like the Tower of Terror ride at Disneyland.
