Fun, go-to ideas from ASID Arizona North Chapter President Janet Jackson

Add instant ambiance and shade to your backyard dining or seating area with strategically placed potted trees. Use a row of three or more to create a lush backdrop. Or, to visually frame your outdoor room, try four in a square.

Succulents are a hot trend, and they’re easy to care for, which makes them perfect for your outdoor centerpiece. For an unexpected twist, contrast the plants’ green vibe with a shiny, contemporary container that’s glass or metal.

To freshen up your everyday tabletop, use natural elements, such as large leaves, as chargers beneath place settings.

Go Southwest-style and drape outdoor chairs with sarapes and Native American blankets. Use a different textile at each seat for an eclectic look.
