7. Cozy up with blankets. The simplest way to add warmth to your outdoor setup — without buying anything new — is to bring out cozy throws and blankets from the house on occasion. Metal seats can feel cold and uninviting in fall and winter, but blankets covering the seat or draped across your legs can make a big difference in how long you’d like to stay outside.

Kantha quilts are usually lightweight, making them perfect summer bed covers and throws. Kantha textiles can also be used to cover pillows, poufs and other small furnishings.

8. Put together an outdoor dining kit. It can be easier to motivate yourself to dine outdoors if you have a kit ready and waiting. Try putting some of your most frequently used outdoor items in a basket or on a big tray with handles, so you can just grab it and go. Here are a few things you might want to include:Unbreakable wineglasses and platesA carafe for water, wine or juiceBig napkinsCandles and matches or a lighterA wicker or mesh dome-shaped cover to keep flies off the foodUnbreakable outdoor serving piecesA bottle opener9. Offer blankets on chilly evenings. Keep a pile of blankets by the door — old wool camp-style blankets, lightweight kantha quilts or fringed throws work well — and pass them around on chilly evenings in the garden. Your guests will thank you!
